I hope you are filled with the same sense of gratitude and inspiration that I am experiencing as I reflect on the recent 10th Annual Dental Success Summit and first ever Smile Outreach International Gala. 

The Dental Success Summit has always been an exceptional gathering, but this year’s event surpassed all expectations. To witness the energy, passion, and dedication emanating from the 700 incredible attendees was
truly awe-inspiring. I am humbled by your commitment to growth, your thirst for knowledge, and your belief in the power of collaboration and community. Your presence and active participation contributed to an atmosphere of enthusiasm and camaraderie that made this Summit a truly transformative experience.

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the remarkable team that worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the Dental Success Summit a reality. From the organizers and to the staff, each and every individual involved poured their hearts into ensuring that every detail was meticulously taken care of. Their dedication, professionalism, and passion for creating an exceptional event were evident in every aspect; and, I am forever grateful for their hard work and commitment.

I am also filled with appreciation for the incredible success of our inaugural Smile Outreach International Gala. To raise nearly $300,000 for dentistry in underserved areas, is a testament to the generosity and compassion of our community. Together, we have taken a significant step towards alleviating the pain and suffering caused by untreated dental disease. It is my honor to lead this organization and work alongside you all to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who lack access to essential dental care.

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to each and every attendee, sponsor, and supporter who played a role in the success of both events. Your presence and contributions have had an incredible impact in making our vision a reality. Together, we are rewriting the narrative of dentistry and creating a future where quality oral healthcare is accessible to all.

As we move forward, I am renewed with inspiration and determination. The Dental Success Summit and Smile Outreach International Gala have affirmed my belief in the power of unity, compassion, and shared purpose. Let us continue to strive for excellence, embrace growth, and make a meaningful impact on the lives of those we serve.

Thank you once again for your unwavering support, and I look forward to continuing this incredible journey together.

With heartfelt appreciation,
Dr. Mark Costes
