Planning Ahead for an Early Exit or Career Shift

Planning Ahead for an Early Exit or Career Shift

It’s no secret the dental landscape is shifting. Gone are the days of a lifetime spent hunched over patients, crafting gleaming smiles.

Many doctors today are not interested in a 40-year career like most of the older generation. An early exit or a change in career is in the cards for most of these doctors.

Several factors contribute to the changing landscape. Loyalty is less common, demanding patients and the constant need to adapt to new tools and techniques.

Now, here’s the kicker – start thinking about what’s next. Not saying bail on your practice now, but ponder your next move so you’re not scrambling when it’s too late.

Explore your options and start that journey on the side, and who knows, it might complement your practice.
