More Seat-of-the Pants Dental Practice Stuff

by Dr. Ron Arndt

As a dental student, business and practice management instruction was absent from our training. Oh, there were one or two classes that were labeled “practice management,” but they were of little value and had no connection to the real world. We were coming out of dental school thinking we knew so much. The dental training was exhaustive and demanding, yet from a business perspective, I was an “unconscious incompetent” and didn’t know it.
