5 Professional Friends Every Dentist Must Have
Posted by Tim Tarks on May 13th, 2022
Being a dentist is a rewarding career path. But to be successful in private practice, you need to be more than just a great dentist. In this post, we are going to highlight 5 professional friends you need to have (and use) to be successful.
1. Marketing Friends
The first friend type you should have are marketing friends. Why? Because your business will need marketing to be successful. Whether you hire this friend or not, they can be a great group of friends to have to bounce ideas off or verify that you are going in the right direction.
2. Accounting / Tax Friends
This goes without saying, accounting for your dollars is important. In any business, having correct numbers on the books will make your life much easier, especially during tax time. Having account friends or a trusted CPA is invaluable.
3. Data Friends
One thing probably most dentists overlook is a data friend. Data strategy companies can help you organize all of your financial and marketing data to make sure you\'re improving and going in the right direction.
4. Lawyer Friends
Lawyer friends are great to have for dentists because they can give you advice should anything go wrong. Whether it\'s an immigration lawyer or a business lawyer, having lawyers around as your friends is important because they know other lawyers who can help your practice should anything happen.
5. Other Dentist Friends
Finally, you should keep other dentist friends around, especially those in private practice. You never know when you\'ll need advice, employee referrals, or to just get another dentist for expansion.
Who you keep in your company is important. Having the right friends when getting into private practice will prove to be invaluable for you and your company. Thank you for reading our topic on friends to keep around in private practice!
