Because you know your overhead is messy.

Because you’re tired of that procedure not working.

Because you want to be excited about walking into the office again.

Because you are a Curious Dentist.

Welcome to The Curious Dentist, a place devoted to helping you, your patients, and your practice thrive.

Although it’s an exciting time to be a dentist, it is also overwhelming.  New technologies demand our attention, yet we can’t find real advice on how to adopt them.  Practice management tips are ubiquitous, yet we struggle to make positive changes in our operations.  New products are launched on the market at a rapid pace, yet we wonder which of them are even worth our time.  If you ever feel overwhelmed, this website is for you.

It is my promise to only provide you with specific, step-by-step, practical information that can be immediately incorporated into your practice.
