Getting a New Dental Practice Up and Running: Advice for Dentists on Building a Successful Practice

2.5 CEU, 20% • $99

There are many ways to get a dental practice on the road to success. You can start from scratch, buy into an existing practice, buy out a dentist and take over. No matter what method you decide on, taking that first step into the practice can be the beginning of a short climb to success or a fall down an elevator shaft. There are a few basic considerations that will insure a good beginning. Whether you are the new dentist heading up the hill or the senior dentist turning over the practice, this program should help you make the right choices and avoid the typical mistakes.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn what parts of the planning process are most important
  • Identify ways to attract the right patients into the practice
  • Understand the role of the dental team in the success of the new practice
