Being a dentist is not easy.  Being a dentist AND a business owner is hard.  The struggles of overhead, employees, pressures of family life, social pressures, and of course dental insurnace.  How do I know this?  Because just like you I have an everyday dental practice that participates with dental insurance and faces these same struggles.

Decisions are what change of our lives.  Both the decisions we make and the decisions we DON’T make!  Most often it’s the decisions that we don’t make that have the greatest impact.  And the sad part is that we don’t even know the impact, because we don’t even know we didn’t make the decision.

Right now, I want you to make a decision to attend SIROWorld from August 11-14, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

Let me give you some ways to figure out if SIROWorld is right for you…

You Need A Disruption.

I often speak that we don’t need change, but we need disruption.  Too many of you reading this are coasting through your dental life.  You are doing well enough.  You don’t have the time in your life for another conference.  You have been there and done that.  You are above it and already know everything.  It’s too hot in Orlando in August.

These are the exact reasons why you need a DISRUPTION.

You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with.  And quite frankly, you are probably hanging out with the wrong 5 people.  If you are the most successful of your friends, then what I am saying is definetely true.

I fall into that same trap.  The difference is that I regularly attend events like SIROWorld and get humbled.  When I get outside my bubble I gain a new perspective of what is possible.  I meet, learn from, and hang out with the best of the best.  The average of those around me goes up.

Being competitive, this gets me disrupted.  And this disruption leads to thought.  Thought leads to action.  Action leads to movement.  Movement leads to change.  And when change starts with disruption – it is a lasting change.

I promise you that shear force of osmosis you will get disrupted.

You Get Your CE Credits From Your Local/State Meetings

With respect I say the following.  Those state meetings are a total waste of time.  They are run by ‘old farts’ who have lost perspective of dentistry in 2016.

Dentistry in 2016 is dynamic.  You can no longer practice dentistry in 2016 with business principles of the 1980’s.

Let me say that again……You can no longer practice 2016 dentistry following 1980’s business principles.

You need a different perspective.  You need fresh ideas.  You need to learn about a wide range of topics.  You need to be pushed.

SIROWorld has 13 educational tracks with over 95 speakers.  There is literally something for everyone.  You owe it to your patients, practice, and team members to get outside your bubble.

You are feeling the ‘B’ word – BURNOUT

We’ve all been there.  Heck, I may be there right now (which is why I am so excited to get to Orlando).  The dentists who attend SIROWorld are the most passionate and energetic group of dentists you’ll ever meet.  This energy and passion is contagious.  And this is a disease you want to catch.

Burnout is a function of not having enough money, time, and/or professional satisfaction.

More than likely you are doing too many crowns and fillings in your practice.  You don’t get the feeling of excitement that comes from doing new things.

With 13 tracks and over 95 speakers you are bound to learn something new.  Whether it’s more advanced implant procedures, sleep apnea therapy, medical billing, smile design, endodontics, or anything else you can imagine – it’s all there at SIROWorld.

It’s your time to make a decision, get disrupted, and get outside your comfort zone.  So get off your butt and get registered!  Visit www.SIROWorld.com for more information.

As a full time practicing dentist that lives in the same world you do – I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed attending my sessions.  I work hard to cut the fluff and give a real world perspective on these topics.

So be sure to stop me and say hello.  I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know you better.
