Description: We will discuss why this becomes an emotional rather than a business decision for so many, and how massive school debt often obscures the big picture. The course provides a realistic view of ownership versus being an employee. We will weigh the risks, consider debt, and evaluate options associated with opening a practice, entering a partnership, buying an existing practice, or working as a partner in a corporate dentistry environment. This lecture illuminates the path which a new dentist should take which leads to long-term personal and financial success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how much an owner profits from having an associate
  • Gain realistic expectations for ownership through case studies
  • Learn how associates are leaving millions on the table when not owning a practice
  • Know the key elements before purchasing a practice: location, type of practice, type of transition, price, age of equipment, etc.
  • Hear a proven plan to efficiently create opportunities for you to find the right practice for you
