hey guys, D1 here. just wondering, how are y'all learning about the business side of dentistry? as we all know, dental school teaches us about dentistry, which is totally fair. however, being a good and successful dentist requires us to know a lot about business too. i know i could work for a private office, or even corporate, after school and learn about management, insurance, and overhead (just to name a few) for a year or two to prepare myself to open an office. I also have heard multiple people say that getting an MBA after dental school was a night and day difference for them, so I was considering that. But all of that pertains to after school, and I was wondering what can I be doing while I'm in school? Just to name one idea I had, I've started collecting all the direct mail (postcard/flyer things, lol can't think of what those are actually called atm). I get quite a few of those in my location. This allows me to see lots of cool things; like what kind of advertising most dentists are doing these days, where they get their post cards from, what kind of deals they're offering for both new and existing patients, basically where they put they're main focus on, etc.. What are some ideas y'all have?
