Message from my mentor:
One of the greatest influences in my professional experience was way back in the day, in the early 1990’s. At that time my 3 children were young, under the ages of 7, and my mental state was mostly a blur. My husband and I had purchased a dental practice in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina which began the journey of discovery regarding dental practice management methods.
We were by no means novice to the ownership of dental practices but we were novice to its success. So I began to do what had worked for me in the past when faced with raising kids with little experience, I began to read. At the time there was no internet, no twitter, no blogs to follow, you had to learn the old fashion way – either go to a seminar or read a book. Seminars were expensive and quiet time to read a book very difficult to find.
So, the family vacations became dental seminars, which is where I was first introduced to Dr. Rick Kushner. His advice regarding methods, policies, procedures, and structure of the business relationship has been tremendous to the foundation of the success my husband and I have experienced. I feel so fortunate that I was exposed to his wealth of knowledge at such a critical time in my business development as a professional.
At last Dr. Kushner has written a new article which I am pleased to share with you, dated on September 9th, 2015, titled 3 Keys to Success in Life, Dentistry and Comfort Dental. Comfort Dental is a chain of dental offices that follow Dr. Rick Kushner’s setup guidelines and methodologies.
Please read the whole article, the value is in staying with the subject matter long enough to gain a valuable read. So much of his advice is about living and having a successful life. We all can use advice in that department.
