Description: Today, Dentistry is much more than the practice of keeping teeth healthy. It is about creating the best possible experience for patients and providing them with exceptional care. As office owners or associates, dentists need to expand their knowledge in areas outside of clinical aspects of dentistry. A successful dentist needs to have basic understanding of various concepts and topics in accounting, finance, labour law, corporate law, taxes, marketing strategies, team dynamics, human behaviour, leadership, and effective communication techniques. This presentation aims to open the doors to these topics and offer a pathway and guide for expanding on these topics and their applications.
