Reposted from Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran

Key Takeaways:

  • There seems to be a lot more opportunity with focusing a new practice in more rural areas.
  • Having great chair-side manner is key to success in dentistry. Some of that manner is inherent, but it can be developed with real-world training.
  • Solo dentists have great advantages in providing excellent customer experiences, quality, and value.
  • Dental corporations bring competition, which in turn makes the entire industry healthier.
  • Dental offices never stop needing new patients, nobody keeps their new patients for life.
  • Society is changing, but dentistry has been the same cottage industry that it’s been since inception.
  • Writing down your goals is a key step in making them happen in your life.
  • Partnerships in dentistry are hard. Be very careful when choosing partners for your business.
  • Org charts are important. Make sure roles are clear, especially with your partnerships.
  • Focus your attention on working “on” your business, instead of working “in” your business. Don’t wait to plan your business until the end of the week, do it first.
