Now that I’m over 50 I can certainly share some things I have learned over the years. There’s still plenty of stuff I don’t know but I do know dentistry and the business of dentistry. I’ve been practicing dentistry since 1987 when many of you were pooping in your diapers while I was drilling and filling. Pretty soon we’ll trade places but in the meantime I’d love to share some advice on starting out, debt and taking a smarter path with money.
