Have you ever wondered what your career and your life will look like in five, ten or even twenty years? Have you ever asked yourself why your career has taken a certain path? Would you like to have more control of your future, or perhaps more understanding of your past? This book was written for you. The Seven Stages of a Dental Practice Life Cycle chronicles real life scenarios based on more than thirty years of experiences from the career of Michael A. Pincus D.D.S. It is an orderly illustration of the journey of a young dental student graduating from dental school and proceeding through a long and wondrous career. It is meant to provide wisdom and insight into each step a young practitioner might take. It is also meant to provide some perspective to the dentists who have already taken those steps. If you are a dental student with mountains of clinical requirements left to complete, and the two students sitting next to you have been finished for months, have faith. If you are five years into your practice, married with your first child on your way, be bold. If you are near retirement, reflect and compare notes. The Seven Stages of a Dental Practice Life Cycle is a humorous, informative, and motivational guide for dentists of all ages.
