The Value of a Second Opinion to a Dentist

Here is another thoughtful blog from our esteemed client Dr. Don Lurie. It seems to me that every health care professional sometimes needs to take the same advice that he gives to his patients.  “I suggest that we get a second opinion on this…” I have written many articles regarding the beginning of our practices […]

The Specialist and Dental Study Clubs

This is another guest post from our client Dr. Lurie. It seems to me that the need and demand for continuing education is extremely important to our profession.  Obviously, so do the State Boards and licensing folks.  I would like to discuss study clubs and how to gain the most value for the time and […]

Here is another guest post from our client Dr. Lurie. The “Team of Retirement” includes:             The Accountant.   He is the Chairman of the Board.  In my opinion, the doctor is on the board, but the team as a whole makes the key decisions that generate and govern the progress of the practice.  He is […]
