FEBRUARY 9–11, 2023 | DENVER, CO

    

When the winds of change blow, some build walls, and others build windmills.

OrthoFi + OrthoBanc invite you to the 2023 NEXUS User & Network Meeting on February 9–11 at the new Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, CO!
 
NEXUS 2023 is a uniquely solutions-focused event powered by hard data. This meeting exists to help doctors and teams overcome challenges due to the imminent winds of change: economic uncertainty, staffing and capacity challenges, consolidation of practices, and competition from direct-to-consumer aligners.
 
Join us in Denver and come away with the actionable tactics you can put into practice on Monday to help you...

BUILD WINDMILLS, NOT WALLS.
