Like other professions, being a dentist means more than just being a dentist. There must be many business models for establishing a dental practice…..and more than likely numerous consultants to help accomplish this.
A new dentist once indicated that there is little taught in the dental school on establishing a practice or even understanding the business side of a professional practice.
Reading the local life-style publications shows that at least in the Raleigh area….the high-end style practice has a market. These practices show highly stylized photos of the staff and office and seem to offer a wide variety of services apart from a traditional practice.
Fortunately we found a more traditional practice….pleasant office….friendly staff….but not glamorous (just professional).
