In this virtual and free TALK networking event on Sept. 9 at 5 PM, Speaker and Founder Kwane Watson will highlight some of the steps forward during COVID-19 that have occurred in mobile dental care. More people during COVID-19 have requested special in-person dental visits via van than ever before.

KARE.Mobi is a startup growing clientele as well as owners in its system. Learn how the model was started and where Founder Kwane Watson will take investors, clientele, and mobile dentists from here.

Kare founder, CEO and President Kwane Watson is a University of Kentucky College of Dentistry graduate with the degree of Doctor of Medical Dentistry. He also serves as the industry leader for a national organization dedicated to mobile dentistry throughout the US.

After graduation, Kwane purchased his first practice a year after graduation. The practice tripled in revenue in less than 5 years and was the largest dental practice in West Louisville. In 2007 he started a high end de novo practice in Norton Commons, but soon realized his passion was serving the working class and underserved population. He sold both practices and in 2016 took a role as State Dental Director for Community Dental of Kentucky. In this position, he traveled the state training doctors and providing care to those with limited oral health care options. With 20 years of dental experience, Kwane has identified and created a business model that will revolutionize oral health care.
