Critics of The Documentary

I’m one of those people who gets nervous when I show people my work.  

Nervous would be an understatement.

When I showed the documentary to the biggest thought-leaders in dentistry, I was worried. (take a sneak peak of the documentary below!)

It’s a little like showing your cosmetic case on stage…to colleagues. You do your best work. Then show the pictures. You study their faces for a reaction.

Then wait.

Moments feel like hours…

It can be so intimidating to hear the feedback!

But it makes us better.

Do you recognize any of these thought-leader’s names?

Jonathan VanHorn

This is amazing. Required viewing for anyone wanting to open a business. Note that I didn’t just say a start-up dental practice…very eye opening on what can be achieved

Dr Paul Goodman

What an awesome way to learn about the startup process

Dr. David Maloley

I used a gunslinger approach to my startup. I had a clear vision of what I wanted but I had no blueprint…thank you for helping my colleagues get further faster!

Robert Montgomery

Wow! This is an awesome documentary on what it takes to do a start-up dental practice the right way…amazing, inspiring account of the process

Why You Need a Team To Start a Dental Practice

When it comes to starting your own dental practice, finding the right real estate is a crucial step to success.

Where do you even start looking? How different is dental practice real estate from commercial? What should you be looking for? 

And don’t forget about the great leasing vs. owning debate. Some dentists argue owning your practice’s real estate is best, and some argue leasing is best.
