Since 2020, our lives and practices have changed forever, but certain tenants remain constant; fiscal sanity protects our family from adversity, elder care is a discussion we must have before it’s necessary, centralizing important information lessens the burden on survivors, and understanding the importance of team building and knowing one’s numbers help a practice thrive, even in a crisis. Join Dr. Kerr as he shares numerous tips and life skills in this informative and entertaining program which will positively impact your life.
Many dentists lack the necessary business skills to predictably plan for financial success.
Worse, they often make practice decisions on an emotional basis without understanding the impact to the practice.
