To paraphrase Ray Kinsella in Field of Dreams, “build it, and they will come.”
Wouldn’t that be nice?

Unfortunately, it’s not quite that easy.  So how can you find or create the dental practice of your dreams?

We always say that it would be remarkably lucky to wind up where you want to be if you don’t know where you’re going.  So in order to determine exactly how you’d like to practice, you need to define your vision. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Decide what will make you happy. Do you want a high volume, insurance based practice?  Is a boutique practice that serves a more elite patient population more your style? While you may not have many choices in the beginning, identifying your ideal dental practice and keeping it at the forefront of your mind will ultimately help you to find yourself in a situation that’s desirable to you.
  2. Do your research. If you have the freedom to relocate, try to find an area where the type of practice you envision would thrive. If you are tied to a specific location, see what the demographics are of that location. How far are you willing to commute? Is there anywhere in that range that could benefit from the services you hope to provide?
  3. Shoot for the stars. When it comes to a vision, aim high. Nothing is too outrageous. After all, you’ve proven in the past that you can meet your goals.  So make this one worth the effort and the wait. Remain committed to the goal, and have confidence that you will achieve it.  We’re willing to bet that you will.
