8TH Annual Dental Success Summit

Postponed Until Further Notice

In the light of the most current facts regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and recent WHO and CDC recommendations, we at the Dental Success Institute feel that postponing this year’s Dental Success Summit, scheduled for March 27th-28th, 2020 is in the best interest of our attendees, sponsors, speakers, and event team.

Please know we did not make this decision lightly and it was decided after a great deal of careful consideration.

The Summit will be postponed to a date within 180 days of today, we will stay in communication about the new dates.
Please be assured that 100% of your registration fee will be credited for admission to the rescheduled Summit.

Sincere gratitude for your understanding and continued support.


All the Best,

Mark Costes and the DSI Team

Dr. Mark Costes

CEO of DSI, Co-Founder of DSN, Speaker,
& Host of The Dentalpreneur Podcast

Dr. Mark Costes is far from a typical dentist and dental coach. During his career, he has been able to start or acquire over a dozen successful dental practices during some of the profession’s most challenging times. But Dr. Costes’s journey was not without its setbacks. In fact, he credits much of his success to the fact that he made more mistakes in his first year of private practice ownership than most dentists make in an entire career. What separated him from the masses, however, was the fact that he viewed each failure and roadblock as a learning experience and an opportunity to improve his business and life. This philosophy, as well as his decision to model the world’s most successful entrepreneurs and dentists, has led him to where he is today.

Dr. Costes is an international keynote speaker and the founder of the Dental Success Institute, a company committed to helping dentists to achieve their full potential, while recapturing their passion for dentistry. He is also the co-founder and CEO of the Dental Success Network, a vibrant community of dentists from around the globe focused on maximizing access of advanced clinical and practice management education to the profession. Dr. Costes is the International and #1 Amazon Best Selling Author of the book Pillars of Dental Success. His internet radio show, The Dentalpreneur Podcast now has listenership from over 150 countries worldwide.

Mark and his wife Leslie have three sons; Bryce, Brendan, and Brady and 2 dogs; Bear and Hazel. They live in Prescott, AZ.

Mike Michalowicz

Author & Entrepreneur

By his 35th birthday Mike Michalowicz (pronounced mi-‘kal-o-wits) had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies.

Confident that he had the formula to success, he became an angel investor…and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Among other innovative strategies, Mike created the “Profit First Formula”, a way for businesses to ensure profitability from their very next deposit forward.

Mike is now running his third million dollar venture, is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal; is the former MSNBC business make-over expert; is a popular keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics; and is the author of Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, which BusinessWeek deemed “the entrepreneur’s cult classic.”
