Day in and day out, there are thousands of products and processes whose design and function go by unnoticed. This is usually a sign of good design. A poorly designed product raises questions about how it could be made better.
Dr. Jordan Bower, Temple ’13, started his practice, Fresh Smiles, in 2018. Here he shares the lessons he learned throughout the process, along with his advice for dental students hoping to go into private practice.
When people learn that I started a business in dental school, they often wonder why. Thinking back to my first year, I knew I needed more. I was stressed. I had no outlet. I decided then that I needed to occupy my free time with things that I love. So, I bought a camera and a 35mm lens with some tax refund money from my gap year and started CM Photography LLC.
