So you want to be a dentist? Do you know what it will take to succeed in dentistry today? With over 30 years of experience in dentistry, the authors have unique and honest insight into what it takes to be a successful dentist. Dental school teaches you how to perform the dental treatment, but it doesn't teach you how to run a dental practice, manage a full staff and patients, or negotiate the financial responsibilities that are involved--to name only a few. This book will give you a head start on the competition. This book is a must read for the pre-dental student and the dental school student looking to not just be a dentist, but be a successful dentist. The authors have over 30 years of combined experience as practicing dentists. All three took different routes on their way to dental school and then into private practice giving them a unique perspective into the various aspects of dentistry.
