The premier leadership training opportunity for dental students is quickly approaching! ASDA’s National Leadership Conference (NLC) is taking place October 30th-November 1st in Chicago and it is an unparalleled opportunity for students. Here are five reasons you do not want to miss NLC this year:
Do you dream of opening your own private practice, but feel daunted by the task? You’re not alone. We’ve heard from dental students that many want to open their own practice and be their own bosses, but they are concerned about finances and a lack of management knowledge.
While dental school does an excellent job of preparing students for practicing dentistry, it doesn’t always provide the necessary skills for starting a private practice.
If I told you there was a way to save tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars on your student loans would you want to know more?
If you’re anything like me when I was in dental school…I’m guessing…Heck Yes!
When I meet dental students, as I regularly do in my travels to schools, I always make a point of asking: “What’s your most valuable asset?” The response is typically a glare that translates to: “Are you kidding me? Do you have any idea how much it costs to be here?!”
Due to recent changes in legislation and an ongoing shortage of dentists that work with children, demand for children’s dentistry is soaring. For dentists who love working with children, this is a savvy career choice with a promising future. Here’s why…
That’s the amount of student loan debt the average dental student graduates with.
As I point out to students, should you become disabled and can’t complete dental school, it’s likely you’ll still have to repay your student loans. And that can be tough—especially if you already have a family or other financial obligations.
That’s why it’s smart to have disability insurance now, since it can help serve as debt protection. Life insurance is equally as important: to help ensure your family is taken care of, to serve as practice loan collateral and to protect your future insurability.
As a benefit of your ADA student membership, you have access to ADA-sponsored Student Members Term Life and Disability Insurance at no-cost!
Now that dental school is ending, you might recall the lunch & learn you attended where MedPro discussed malpractice insurance as you devoured your sandwich.
You may remember the differences between occurrence and claims-made policies, the importance of carrier financial strength ratings, and why having PURE consent is a big deal.
