When it comes to starting a new dental practice, everything can seem very overwhelming and exciting. You've finished school, maybe put in a few years working in someone else's practice, but now it's time to take the leap. Congratulations!
Not only is it a thrilling endeavor, but there's a lot of work to do. We know that you have a lot of decisions to make and it can be tough to get any straight answers. Compounding the issue, you likely don't have a lot of business education under your belt. A recent study showed that 85% of dental school graduates feel unprepared for starting and running a practice. That's okay! You now have a DDS, not an MBA, and you're definitely not alone.
