Episode 56: The Big Game – Lifestyle And Dental Practice Success
We all have different reasons for wanting to start a dental practice. Maybe you’ve always had a passion for the dental industry. Or maybe you love making a difference in your patients lives. Or perhaps, you just love the challenge of building a thriving dental business.
The truth is, whatever your reason, what you do matters.
But it’s sometimes easy to forget.
We get so caught up in the grind to build our practice that we let it run our lives.
And yet, I truly believe you can have both a successful practice and a lifestyle you love.
Which is why I’m so excited to share my conversation with today’s guest Ben Kacos.
Ben is a private practice dentist and a coach and consultant for the Dental Success Institute. He is also the founder of ExploreEducationCE, a unique continuing education program which mixes dental education with an outdoor sports twist.
He’s been fortunate enough to be mentored by some of the best in the business, and has some surprising insights on how to take your practice to the next level.
His unique story is something you won’t want to miss.
