111 Building a Dental Practice While Raising a Family

Millennial Dentist Podcast

Today, we are chatting with a fellow dentist, Amy. She talks about what she has learned in buying her practice, having her husband as a business partner, and how she started out in her new practice as an office manager doing the behind-the-scenes work.

When she transitioned over to working full-time at her practice, Amy found that she wasn’t as stressed working in-between her practice and her full-time job. However, as they want to maximize their production at their practice, they take on emergencies as much as possible.

Box scheduling is a great way to get those last-minute emergencies in. When you only fill your schedule to 90%, you leave room for those patients who need to come in the same day.

Dentistry is changing. Technology, education, and resources are closer to our fingertips now more than ever! Are you ready to learn what millennial dentists are doing to exceed patient expectations, enjoy dentistry more and take vacations and how this generation can join up with the previous generation to make for an unstoppable dental team? Wait no longer! Listen in and find out how to push your lifestyle to the next level.
