The biggest lesson I have learned in growing my business is that life is not all about you. By investing time, money and energy into your team, your business can grow. Our dental practices are so much more about just being a good technical dentist but about systems, education and most importantly, communication.
When I am not working you’ll find me spending time with my family of 3 boys (my husband Tom included!), playing soccer, golfing, traveling, spending time at the lake, and reading.
I know I am biased but my excitement about teaching with the 3D Dentist team cannot be contained. As practicing general dentists we can take the things we have learned and break it down into a systematic, understandable, implementable workflow. Always based on science we can help fast forward the mistakes we’ve made along the way and empower the team to get excited and passionate about providing the best care to the most important thing in the practice… your patients. We also have an experience like no other in the interactive community we provide during and after the course.
DR. BRIAN MCGUE
Dr. Brian McGue is a full time practicing general dentist with a private practice in Chesterton, IN. His practice has a comprehensive focus offering a variety of restorative and surgical treatments with an emphasis on using oral conscious sedation for patient comfort. He lectures on the topic of oral sedation and runs hands-on workshops for dentists interested in incorporating oral sedation into their practices. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and the International Anesthesia Research Society.
The best advice I’ve ever received related to growing my business Two phrases:
1) “Never stop moving forward”. Simply stated: always be looking to expand your knowledge, skills, equipment, infrastructure, team abilities, office presence etc.. Never get too comfortable where you currently are with your business.
2) “Those who never try never fail. Those who never fail never succeed.” Don’t be afraid to fail because you learn so much more from failure than from success.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me…. at the beach. I’m fortunate to live and practice in an area known as the Indiana Dunes National Park. When I’m not at work my wife and I are either hiking or (in the winter) cross-country skiing in the dunes, swimming in Lake Michigan or sitting on the beach reading books.
The most valuable benefit of attending 3D Workshops is…. all the courses at 3-D are geared so when a person returns to their office on Monday morning they have new skills and a detailed plan to implement those skills into their office. We truly want you to succeed and utilize what you’ve learned immediately.
DR. SULLY SULLIVAN
Graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2015. Dr. Sullivan realized oral healthcare is a constantly changing discipline, so he prioritizes continuing education courses, conference, and lectures. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Based on his desire to help younger dentists accelerate their growth he founded the Millennial Dentist Podcast and the Millenial Dentist Mastermind.
The best advice I’ve ever received related to growing my practice is keep investing in my education and my practice. It’s easy to get comfortable and complacent in dentistry. However, if you’re not moving forward you’re really moving backward and I have found that our practice flourishes when we keep raising the bar of the way we do dentistry and the quality at which we do it.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me podcasting and speaking! I love the community we have in dentistry and I love traveling and meeting new people. It makes me eager to get back Monday to implement things I have heard other people do well. When I am not doing that my wife and I love to travel, but our recent addition of our first baby boy has me thinking we will be spending a lot more time at home enjoying him grow up.
The most valuable benefit of attending 3D Workshops is going home with a strategy to actually implement what you have learned. There is so much good CE out there but I think what makes 3D Workshops great is that they’re built for everyday practices. You leave the courses confident with an action plan to implement what it is you have actually learned whether its sleep, implants, sedation, etc. We have all been there Monday morning after a course and feeling stuck in how to get going but you won’t have that problem after one of these courses.

The best advice I’ve ever received related to growing my business is to not get fancy or try to add too many services and to have the discipline to stay focused on what you are best at.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me enjoying the outdoors of Georgia, playing with my daughter, or having a fantastic dinner with my wife, I am a bit of a foodie.
The most valuable benefit of attending 3D Workshops is being able to add a service to your practice that does not require you to get more new patients.
