AUDIO - DUwHF #936 - Christina Blatchford
Christina is a mother and wife first. A dentist second. She loves dentistry but understands the value of quality time spent with her family and friends. She enjoys the aesthetics of dentistry and has learned how to pursue her artistic talents in this field. Her father, Dr. Bill Blatchford was a successful dentist and it seemed the natural progression for her to follow in his footsteps. Originally, Christina pursued a fashion path and received her B of A. After working at Nordstroms for a bit she realized she needed more. She went back to school and became an interior architect specializing in dental practices. After a bit of time she realized she wanted the lifestyle she was given growing up and needed to pursue a career in dentistry to allow these opportunities for not only her but her husband and young daughter. She now works two to three days a week and takes eight weeks off every year. There is a specific formula to this lifestyle that Christina and her father would like to share with more dentists. Blatchford Solutions is a practice management company that helps only fifty doctors a year pursue the lifestyle they want to live. Too many dentists run on a rat race of a huge overhead, working four to five days a week and taking maybe two to three weeks of vacation a year.
