    Hi,

    I was wondering just how much business sense is required to be successful in dentistry. Can you still be successful even if you don't have the greatest business ideas? Actually, that's a stupid question because most dentists probably aren't Wharton grads or something, but in general, is it fairly easy to start your own private practice after working for a while?

    starting my own practice has been harder (but also much more fun) than anything i learned in dental school. its hard because you have to learn it on your own, dental school is pretty much full of info on teeth and such. please dont fool yourself thinking its a piece of cake to start up a practice - but it is definitely doable. best of luck.
