My Return Visit to the SYPD Podcast

Three years ago, I was Jonathon Van Horn of DentistMetrics very first guest on his SYDP podcast. 

WOW! Three years ago…

Now, after over 100 guests, 111 episodes, Jonathon asked me back to talk about a project that we recently launched.

Here are a few things you’ll learn in my return visit to SYPD:

  • What I have learned from producing the dental communities first ever documentary focusing exclusively on startups and growing your dental practice.
  • The current entrepreneurial trends in dentistry, and why they matter to you.
  • How to push through the ups and downs of being a dental practice owner.
  • The pros and cons of starting your own practice versus purchasing one.
  • How to balance traditional education and learning by doing as you grow your practice.
  • The hard truth about growing your dental practice and why building a startup is not for everyone.

And much more.

It was an honor to be back on Jonathon’s show after over 111 episodes!  I know you’ll find a ton of valuable insights from our conversation.

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.
