Top 5 Things Holding Dentists Back from Achieving Their True Potential


Starting your own practice is always a slow, yet rewarding experience, especially when you’re at a point where you have a stable clientele and consistent work. After stability comes expansion and growth, and this period is where many find out the difference between being a great dentist and being a great business owner. Many things are holding dentists back from achieving their true potential, but I narrowed it down to just five key factors.


In today’s episode, I discuss the five things that hold a dentist back from reaching their full potential. I share how mindset can affect the way you run and grow your business. I explain the importance of knowing the people you hire and what shoes they can fill. I describe why dental insurance will always be a relevant subject in any practice as well as why it shouldn’t discourage you from offering extra services. I also discuss what dentists can do to boost not just their practice and finances, but also their online presence and personal brand.

“We have to self-assess where we’re at, who we are, and how things are going.”
