Business of Dentistry: Financial Planning 101


Course Description:
Dentists, like other professionals, should develop a solid financial plan to build wealth and prepare for retirement. Planning for financial independence while building their dental practice is an issue that concerns dentists at all stages of their career, whether they’re just starting out, growing to multiple locations, or preparing to sell their practice in preparation for retirement. Developing a financial plan with the guidance of a team of professional advisors can help you meet your unique current and future goals and allow your plan to evolve throughout various life stages.

During this session, we’ll explore the elements of a financial plan and how to begin this important process, no matter the season of life you are in.
