2021 Annual Continuing Education and Networking event


The WDA is teaming up with the Greater Milwaukee Dental Association and Waukesha County Dental Society to host a fantastic program. 

Popular speaker and ACT Dental founder Kirk Behrendt will present “The 4 Keys to Master Treatment as a Team” for dentists and their dental teams on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021 at The Brookfield Conference Center, in Brookfield, Wis.

The program carries 6 non-clinical CE credits. 

A fun, two-hour networking social will immediately follow the all-day CE. More than 25 tabletop exhibits with knowledgeable dental industry specialists will also be part of the 2021 event.




Kirk Behrendt is an international speaker, acclaimed author, and the visionary CEO of ACT Dental. He has invested his entire professional life in studying the elite practices in dentistry and the leadership that guides them.

Kirk founded ACT Dental over 20 years ago with the goal of providing personalized solutions for dentists around the world. After seeing so many talented dentists struggle to run a predictable, profitable business, he made it his mission to assemble a team of leadership and practice management experts to help dentists solve their biggest problems. The ACT Dental platform is a transformational resource that provides the foundation for dental practices to thrive in any environment. His philosophy is simple – your amazing career in dentistry is worth nothing if you can’t enjoy your life outside the office as well.

Dentistry Today has recognized Kirk as one of the Leaders in Dental Consulting for eight years running. He is also on the board of advisors for the Pankey Institute, an adjunct professor for the Dawson Academy, and has been chosen as one of 12 featured speakers at the Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting in 2019. Dr. Peter Dawson has referred to Kirk as “THE best motivator I have ever heard.”

When Kirk is not hosting his podcast, The Best Practices Show, you can find him spending time with his family and attending every sporting event under the sun. As a former walk-on at the University of Minnesota and current Ironman Triathlete, athletics is an important part of his psyche and that translates into pushing you and your team to win. His feeling is that there is no greater parallel to optimal business performance than optimal athletic performance.

The WDA is planning for an in-person Annual CE & Networking Event November 11, 2021 at the Brookfield Conference Center,
but given the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the pandemic and our commitment to keeping attendees safe, this event may
