Dr. David Dunning is a visionary- and for over two decades, he has been the Practice Management professor at the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry.
Over that time, Dr. Dunning’s curriculum has evolved to include simulations that expose his students to real-life practice scenarios and help them to develop the knowledge base to become effective future practice owners.
In this episode of the Dentalpreneur Podcast, I play a Q & A session with Dr. Dunning’s D4 class following a more formal presentation on the benefits and challenges of dental practice ownership.
Here is some of what we covered:
How to secure a good associateship before you obtain the clinical skill to make yourself a valuable addition to a dental team
Which clinical procedures should all new dentists master in order to secure their value in the marketplace
How to approach debt and savings in the early stages of your career
Which is more important when hiring an office manager- personality or dental experience?
I do some of my best thinking while I’m driving- which is a good thing because sometimes it feels like I spend half of my life in cars and planes.
In this episode of the Dentalpreneur Podcast, you’ll hear Kiera Dent and I reflect on our travels, the “struggle” that so many dentists face and how to keep perspective when you are stuck in the daily whirlwind.
Check it out, it’s a fun one- and oh I forgot to mention… this was recorded while I was driving 🙂
