Episode 90: Nifty Thrifty Dentists – Time Tested Strategies For Building A Successful Dental Practice

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

One of my favorite ways to stay “up to date” with the dental industry is to be active in a few high-value Facebook groups. And though “social media” often gets a bad rap for being a waste of time, I often find the discussions and comments highly valuable.

When done correctly, Facebook groups help you stay on top of the latest trends and build meaningful connections with other dentists and professionals.

Were it not for Facebook groups, I wouldn’t be introducing today’s two very special guests, Dr. Glenn Vo and Dr. Vinh Nguyen of Nifty Thrifty Dentists.

When I first joined the Nifty Thrifty Dentist Facebook group a while back, I wasn’t sure what to expect. “Nifty thrifty dentists?!?!” but I quickly learned that Dr. Glenn and Dr. Vinh are the real deal and have created an amazing community in a short period of time.

I’m excited to share my conversation with them and what they have learned from building such an incredible community.

Episode 89: How To Acquire A Dental Practice 101

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

As we gear up for some exciting new changes coming to the SYDP podcast, I wanted to share a self-hosted episode I put together discussing everything you need to know about how to acquire a dental practice.

Having talked with dozens of dentists about the process, I think you’ll find this solo episode a great resource if you’re in the process of acquiring your first practice or needing some guidance.

Even if you’ve already had a few acquisitions under your belt, I cover some common mistakes as well.

Many dentists I’ve spoken with equate the acquisition process to having your first child… you won’t know what it’s like until it happens, but being prepared goes a long way.

Episode 88: How To Negotiate Your Dental Practice Lease Like A Pro With Norman Gelfand

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

Aside from graduating dental school, there are very few moments in the course of your dental career that are more important than when you sign the lease for your 1st (or 3rd) dental practice location.

It’s scary. It’s exciting. And if we’re being honest, a little overwhelming.

Did you pay too much? Did you choose the right location? Did you protect yourself legally if anything goes wrong?

At the same time, purchasing a practice means you have tremendous opportunity to grow and scale your services and patient base.

Which is why I’m excited to introduce today’s guest Norman Gelfand. Norman is the founder and president of Gelfand Group and is an expert in commercial real estate with over 20+ years of experience. He’s helped hundreds of dental practice owners negotiate a lease that gives them the best chance to succeed.

In our chat today, he shares everything he knows about how to ensure you sign a lease that makes sense for you.

Episode 87: How To Pay Off Your Dental Student Loans With Travis Hornsby

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)Chances are if you’re listening to this podcast, you have some dental student loan debt.

Having worked exclusively with dentists for most of my professional career, it’s not common for me to see aspiring practice owners coming out of school with 400-500k in student loan debt, and that’s only for a dental license!

While we can debate whether or not the large costs are justified, the reality is, without a student loan plan of attack, you’ll be stuck making payments for the rest of your life.

Which is why I’m excited to share my conversation with Travis Hornsby, founder of StudentLoanPlanner.com

Travis has helped hundreds of professionals take control of their finances and student loan debt — and has an incredible track record of helping his clients become debt free.

Even if you’re fortunate to have paid off your student loans, I know you’ll find a lot of actionable insight from our conversation.
