Hi everybody! I’ve been a long-time denizen of various online dental forums like DentalTown.com and the ACE email list. My participation in online dental groups started back around 1992 on Compuserve’s MedSIG Dental Forum (no longer in existence).
For all those years, I’ve enjoyed sharing what has worked for me in my dental practice and what hasn’t. I’ve also shared my other passions (guns, self-defense and personal safety). And during that time, I’ve had a tremendous amount of positive feedback for my online musings. Hundreds of emails each year, if not thousands, have led me to this. I created this blog in order to centralize and archive my thoughts on those topics. A majority will be on the dental topics.
I’ll still always be a regular on the forums. No worries!
Here on TheDentalWarrior.com , you’ll find my thoughts, trials, and tribulations with dental products, dental techniques and services, marketing ideas and efforts, patient management, treatment presentation, and I’ll sprinkle in some thoughts about personal security, self-defense, and safety. That may seem like an odd combination, but over many years it has resonated with many dentists on other forums. And, that’s why I’m doing this.
A recurring theme you’ll find among my reviews and recommendations is that they will not require a bank loan or have a protracted return on investment. My favorite things are usually those with a reasonable “price of admission” and a nearly immediate ROI.
I expect this blog will contain a combination of writing and video. I’m just now learning WordPress, so bear with me as I sort this out. I’ve got a lot of work to do, yet. This is just the beginning! So at the outset, this website won’t blow anyone away with special effects or fancy graphic design. The appearance is “plain-Jane” right now. But, it’s all about information. And, I’ve got a ton of it coming!
Eventually, I may have select guest writers and videos, as well.
We dental professionals are a unique bunch fighting a challenging “war.” We are the last bastion of health care entrepreneurism. Personally, I like (love) it that way. And, in this economy it’s become an even more daunting endeavor. I hope this blog will prove to be a rallying point for those of us slogging through this battlefield we call “private practice.”
