Skills Of A Dentist: More Education Required Than You Think

When I started this blog, I was a pre-dental student.  Now that I’m a dentist, I’m still learning everything I can about dentistry.  If you’re on my mailing list, then you already know that I had a tough time getting through my pre-dental science curriculum and doing well on the DAT.  And in dental school, those things were still challenging.  Now, I’m learning that being a dentist also requires a huge business skill set.

One of the things dental school courses don’t talk much about is the business of dentistry.  But I have good news for you… great news, in fact.  That’s because Dr. Ahmed Ezzeldin, DDS, who runs a practice in Gainesville, Virginia decided to break down the secrets of running a successful practice for all the students on dentalDAT.  Dr. Ezzeldin is the real deal, and a really great guy.  Over the course of two months, while running his own practice, he made extra time and asked 21 veteran dentists to reveal their biggest career mistakes, along with their advice for pre-dental and dental students.  A lot of what they said was a complete surprise for me.

So without further adieu, I present Dr. Ezzeldin’s “21 Veteran Dentists Finally Reveal Their Secrets On Building A Successful Dental Career.”  I know it will definitely put your career plans in perspective, and for those of you who aren’t yet in dental school, help you to put the whole picture together of what your options are and what to expect.  Leave a comment if you have any questions, and be sure to thank Dr. Ezzeldin for the great resource!
