This course also highlights some of the unexpected things, both clinical and administrative, that a new dentist may encounter along the way. Attendees will appreciate the pearls of wisdom shared and common mistakes avoided when they apply Dr. Simon’s lessons and position themselves for a successful career in dentistry!!

Biographical Information

New dentists are graduating with little or no idea of how to get a good job or how to run a dental practice. They are mired in debt, fear, and uncertainty. Over the course of Dr. Bill Simon’s 30 year career, he grew to become the sole owner of 2 highly successful multi-doctor practices. His experience includes 6 build outs, 9 locations, 4 space-sharing arrangements, 1 practice acquisition and over 25 associates. He experienced a lost lease, an embezzlement scheme and a major fire, after which, his office was a traveling road show working out of 3 offices then settling into an abandoned dental office while they rebuilt. The fourth month after the fire they had the best production month in the history of the practice.

Dr. Simon’s presentations inspire new dentists with the knowledge and hope they need to allay their fears and facilitate their success.
