This course is a short introduction to a different way of thinking for dentists, physicians and their teams. The examples are tailored for dental offices, but it also applies to private physicians.

In Universities we have not been prepared to be entrepreneurs. But we open an office and have to compete. Some of you are lucky and compete against other "amateurs", e.g. other dentists or physicians, but some of us are in countries where regulations allow even a taxi driver to open a dental office, which makes everything a pure business and then you, as a dentist, have to compete against "real" entrepreneurs.

In this course you will start to get a mindset and ideas about the fundamentals of dental business management, personal branding, marketing and the sales process.

It is not complete, just 20 tips, that open up and may change the way you do business until now.

But if you can implement one or two of these ideas, this will bring you more patients, which means much more revenue over the years.

What will New Dentists be able to do after this Course:

This Course will help new Dentists to start their own Dental Practice within three months; even if they have lack of practical experience or financial restraints.

In this Course I have explained how to overcome the most common obstacles faced by new Dentists and ensure desired patients right from the day one of their Practice.

This Course will also help new Dentists to gather all the information essential for starting their own Dental Practice at a location they desire; in the City of their choice.

If Students go through this Course in a step by step manner, they will have clear idea about all the 'and Don'ts of Private Practice, and have enough confidence to start their own Dental Practice within three months from now.

Why Three Months and Not Less or More:

Most Dentists who have experience, confidence and financial resource, usually skip the steps mentioned in this Course and start their practice. However, in most cases they land up with an undesired "Long Waiting Period".

They get easily lured by Companies who deal with Social Media and Digital Marketing.

On the other hand, with this Course, if taken seriously, Dentists can get desired patients right from day one of their Practice; without any separate marketing expenses.

Three months period after deciding to start your own Practice; is essential to do proper planning, choosing right location and to build practice faster than their competitors.

Approximately one month is required to decide on the type of clientele.

Second month is required for choosing suitable location for the Practice.

And, Third month is essential for finishing the interior and informing all the persons whom they had met earlier, about starting of their own Practice.

And all along, if students keep meeting people as explained in the Course, they will develop enough contacts for getting desired Patients right from the day one of their Practice.

This method works.

Period of more than three months, may possibly lead to change in circumstances and situations, requiring the Dentist to think fresh..

This Course will not make Dentist a perfect Marketing Person

This Course is designed only to remove all the fears of Dentists and to give practical ideas for actually starting their own Dental Practice, even without sufficient clinical experience or finance to begin with.

I will be having separate Course on "Marketing Your Dental Practice" designed for Practising Dentists, which aims at improving marketing and communication skills like, Presenting Treatment Plan, Handling Objections, Understanding Patient Psychology, Staff management and much more.

This Course will be essential to develop and sharpen the skills of marketing as a continuous process for ensuring consistency in successful practice.

This Course will reach its perfection only if -

This Course will reach its perfection, only if students give their feedback and ask as many questions as they come across..

I will do my best to give solutions for all of them, or add relevant videos to help Dentists further in starting their own Dental Practice.

So, Join Now and Start Planning Your Own Dental Practice, three months from now.
