Your dental practice needs to be independent of the threats to its (and your) freedom.

Here’s a little quiz to help you consider your success:
Note: find your niche.
Find your specialization within what you do.
On the road to success...
Now you know the paths to success. Go for the highest scores you can muster! You’re on your road.
When you truly love to practice dentistry and you truly love and care for your patients, you get what is called 'Lead Generation' and new patients result.
Part II of "Doctor, there's a fast train coming. Are you dancing on the tracks?'
It is a great opportunity and an important step: Dentists can take a free market approach with their practices, and avoid the oncoming 'train wreck' of corporate and government domination.
Besides providing great patient treatment, great dentists learn to work on their businesses / practices and to provide vision, leadership and love.
Just what makes you want to be a dentist, anyway?
Where do you find your motivation each day when you walk into your practice?
