Do your research and commit to the plan
Being a business owner is a full-time commitment that requires 100% focus and attention on the business. Be prepared to operate like a CEO, not a dentist. As soon as you make up your mind to take this journey, start to explore the unknowns that lie ahead. As you filter through the advice and information, we suggest connecting with a coach to help build a group of trusted advisers that we call the team.
Much like building a home, any good business that is built for longevity is built with a strong foundation. We believe your vision of your business is the foundation by which all decisions are made about your business moving forward.
As a business owner, you will have the ability to take control of your life and professional schedule in a way you’ve never thought possible as long as you have a plan! Contact us and we will give you some ideas of how to develop the vision of your new practice.

As a dental specialist graduating from programs, we are amply prepared clinically, however, when it comes to business and navigating how to start a practice, I had little preparation. I'm very thankful to the KLAS team for all their leadership, guidance and help each step in starting my practice. Negotiating contracts, understanding local requirements and code, and connecting with great local professionals for modifying the office space has been so helpful. I highly recommend if you are starting your practice or hoping to transition your practice you ask this group for an initial discussion.
