Gone are the days where a dentist can hang their shingle, take great care of their patients, and expect their business to thrive. ADA research has shown that dental spending by US adults has been flattening for well over a decade. Dentists must take as good of care of their practice's health as they do their patients' oral health. In this course, we'll make sense of the current climate and strategize how an independent practice can prosper.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify macroeconomic factors that influence your practice.
  • Use management tools to create a practice business model.
