Dentists have a fantastic line of work. Success in dentistry is high provided you know how to run the practice both from a clinical and business perspectives. The clinical aspects of dentistry are taught in dental school. Once you graduated from dentistry, the next thing to do is to obtain a license to start practicing your profession. Your license is your gateway to the dental practice. However, it is not a guarantee for success. What you do with your dental practice and how you handle the patients and challenges that may come along the way to determine your success. Unfortunately, the business side of running a dental practice is something not taught in the school. You get to learn it through experience, and most of the time, it would cost you much money. But you don’t have to go through costly mistakes. All you need to do is to take courses and learning materials that would further enhance your knowledge of the business side of dentistry.

Why should dentists learn how to run a dental practice?

Running a business is not easy, especially dental business. Dentists are not taught at school about the business side of dentistry. As a result, many dentists are struggling to run a business. They spend four years in undergraduate school and another four years in dental school. After earning the license to practice dentistry, they are expected to run a dental practice without any knowledge of how to run a business. You need to figure it out on your own. That’s on top of the dental work. In other words, if you start your dental practice, you become a jack of all trades – you are the dentist, a business owner, and an entrepreneur.

You become the manager of your business. You handle everything, such as hiring staff, building your practice from scratch, utility bills, overhead cost, and advertising. To run a successful dental practice, you need to be able to balance multiple roles.

• Creating a plan of action – Dentists should have a comprehensive and specific business plan. The plan should include a clinical and business plan. The clinical program is pretty easy as dentists spend years in school mastering the ins and outs of clinical dentistry. The challenging part is creating a solid business plan. Dentists are not taught at school the business side of running a dental practice. Without a solid business plan, you will end up shutting down your business.

• Develop a business acumen – Many dentists, especially fresh graduates, lack business acumen. If you want to succeed, then you need to commit yourself to learn the business side of dentistry. There are many learning platforms to choose from. Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s podcast, Entrepreneurial Dentist, is an excellent source of information about the business side of running a dental practice.
