You don’t know me yet, but I understand the world you live in.

My introduction to dentistry was a rocky road. The practice atmosphere was so tense that more than once team members left for lunch never to return. Pressure was a constant. Lashing out and tears were common. It was the best thing that ever happened to me.

The lessons I learned were invaluable. Out of the hard times came precious gems that I collected to share. These gems can forever change the course of your practice. Stop suffering through each day. Don’t settle! You absolutely can have the type of practice you desire.

Call me and share your struggles and wishes. It's time to bring fun back. Have the practice you want; peaceful, productive and profitable.
