Hard work, perseverance, and vulnerability are key to achieving success. Success is a journey, and it takes time and continuous growth to reach new levels. Giving back and helping others is a fulfilling way to create a legacy. Fatherhood can take different forms and evolve over time, with each individual having their own parenting style and experiences. The dental investment market is facing challenges due to high interest rates and the need for a proven track record of success. Consolidation in the dental industry is increasing, with more dentists joining group practices and DSOs. The future of dentistry looks promising for those who are passionate about providing quality care and are aligned with the values of the profession. It is important for dentists to focus on their core competency in dentistry and seek partnerships that align with their values and goals. Business training should be incorporated into dental school curricula to better prepare dentists for the realities of running a practice. Dentists should embrace their strengths and seek support from others to fill in the gaps in their knowledge and skills. The joint venture model can be a beneficial approach for dentists looking to partner with others and expand their practices. The dental industry is experiencing a shift towards valuing quality of care and differentiation, rather than just focusing on revenue and valuations. The future of dentistry will be shaped by factors such as competition, costs, negotiation with payers, and the ability to differentiate and provide value to patients.
