Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a dentist and owner of the International Academy of Sleep. Recently he has created a podcast to teach dentists many business sides of dental practices. He named the podcast, The Entrepreneurial Dentist. This podcast is guiding the dentists on how to avoid lawsuits and license cancellations.
A dentist is technically a doctor but not necessarily a practicing doctor and the little piece of paper called license can be taken and revoked any time by a group of strangers. The podcast prepared by Dr. Avi shows the different reasons about license cancellation and lawsuits.
The podcast is telling the dentists that they need to know and master how to perform complex dental procedures. They need to prepare themselves first to handle the business side of the dental practice.
For new dentists, there is a need to realize that clinical knowledge is not enough to run a successful dental clinic without any lawsuit. The entrepreneurial component of practicing dentistry is very useful to avoid lawsuits and revoked licenses.
Dentists should take care of a lot of things such as hiring staff, taking care of the payroll, taxes and marketing and advertising. All these aspects, if handled intelligently, can help in avoiding lawsuits and license cancellations. Dentists are professional business owners and they need to make crucial decisions to keep their business going on and build a reputation. Making good reputation in the market is very helpful to avoid any legal issue. For good reputation, dentists require a consistent approach, resources, and planning.
