Welcome to Dental Entrepreneur
What are we to do? This is a question all of us are probably asking ourselves as the 2016 presidential election looms. Lucky for you, we won’t be getting political in this publication. Phew!
No, no, Dental Entrepreneur: Business Beyond the Classroom is about your future, your career as a dental professional. As you embark on your career—congrats, by the way—you probably have a lot of questions regarding how to get started and build that bright future. We think we’ve got the answers in these pages.
But we are not just expecting you to take our word for it. To help you on your journey, we’ve teamed up with several experts in the fields of dentistry and those related to dentistry.
That means professionals like Dr. David Schrad, who contributed a piece that confronts the fears you may have as you enter the working world with a mountain of student debt. Should fear prevent you from taking the plunge and buying your own practice? David might motivate you look past fear and dive in with both feet.
That means we are welcoming Wes Jankowski, CEO Dentist Founder, with a few words on creating your road map to success. After all, the best way to predict the future is to create it, right (Wes’ statement, but I wholeheartedly agree)?
That means we tabbed international dentistry image expert Janice Hurley to focus on the image that you project. It’s more important than you think and can affect not only the financial success of your practice, but also the success of your interactions with patients and team members.
Once again, we’ve also asked a young dentist to tell their story, and Dr. Christina Harris’ is truly inspiring. Christina is only in her third year of practice, but she has traveled the world to places like Haiti and Kenya giving back through mission dentistry. Your heart will warm after hearing her testimonial.
I promise your questions that remain are answered for you, the young dentist and the future dental entrepreneur.
Some day, we’ll be looking to you for your story. I’m betting it’s going to be a great read!
All the best,
Anne M. Duffy
