Practice Testimonials

“Each year I have participated (five and counting), I’ve had a terrific time, and great sense of gratification. Following the Mt. Hood trip, my local newspaper ran a five page article on the Event I plan to participate as much as possible, as I can think of no better way to ‘give back.’”

Grant Ritchey Tonganoxie, KS

“My participation in DCFAC 1998 helped established my “brand” as the “mountain climbing doctor.” 8 years later, I still get calls making reference to the articles and TV placements.”

Mark Connelly St. Johns, MI

“I used my involvement in DCFAC as a way to communicate with current and prospective patients, as well as my local community at large.

Prior to my departure to climb Mt.Whitney, we had a send-off party at the club down the street from my office that was attended by more than 100 people. As a result of this Event and other support, we raised over $11,000, more than any other DCFAC practice.

I know of no better way to connect ones practice with its community than by employing Event marketing.”

Frank Wolf DDS (retired) Cave Creek, AZ
