Welcome to Dental Entrepreneur

I need your help. We have been publishing Dental Entrepreneur magazine for 18 years, and I hear from you that you love our content and look forward to receiving it four times a year. However, there are two schools that won’t distribute us because, well, they are simply too busy and/or not interested. That was disappointing.

I ask you to help me help you. Please share our website, www.dentalentrepreneur.com, with your colleagues so they can be successful, too. So let us know what questions you have. We will continue to do our best to find answers from the experts we know. Weigh in with us. Let’s work together to make your chosen vocation rewarding.

You too might work your heart out on some days and feel unappreciated. We’ve all been there, even after decades in the industry. Stay focused. You are dedicated to doing well for people. Teeth are so important! How exciting it will be to one day save teeth and improve the lives of others? (Shout out to Veterinary dentists too!)

I like to keep the phrase “short term pain for life long gain” in mind. Soon you will graduate to the next phase, and it will all be worth it.

You will like this issue …

For starters, Dr. Sam Shamardi truly carries the entrepreneurial spirit in his heart. It may not always be easy, but being open to opportunities that you are interested in makes the time spent worth the effort. His testimonial really moved me, and I’m sure it will move you, as well.

We’ve also got an excellent contribution from Dr. Tom Snyder, who breaks down the information you need to consider when purchasing a practice. There are likely many questions you haven’t considered when making this important decision, and his insight is invaluable.

Dr. Jane Puskas, an inspiration for our new publication DeW.life, shares what going to a conference can mean to you in the start of your career. Can you believe she is the rst female chairman of the Thomas P. Hinman Dental meeting? I’m very excited she chose to be a part of this edition.

And then as always, Dr.David Rice closes things out with a few words to keep you on track. When he speaks, it’s impossible to not want to follow! Read more about him at Ignitedds.com.

This year, we’re also proud to start DeW.life, which seeks to empower women in dentistry though practical knowledge and inspirational stories of females carving out their respective paths to success.

Remember, a rising tide raises all ships. And we here at Dental Entrepreneur are committed to ensuring that the next generation of dental professionals is prepared for prosperity!

All the best,

Anne M. Duffy
