It Pays for Itself

An annual membership to Spear Digital Suite pays for itself several times over by giving you the expertise and confidence to take on new challenges. Just one additional major case can more than cover your annual fees.

It Pays for Itself

No Travel Costs

Spear Digital Suite costs only $1,995 for one year — a fraction of what it would cost for you and your team to travel to a single weekend seminar.

No Travel

Includes Staff Training

If a practice only used the included Team Meeting curriculum on a bi-weekly basis, the cost works out to just less than $75 per training session.

Team Training

“Having the confidence in my value has made me economically independent very quickly and has made me a better dentist. And I have Spear to thank for that.”

Dr. JB White, Las Vegas, Nev.
