How the Trump Tax Cuts and SALT Changes Are Influencing Practice Locations
We have noticed an interesting relationship to the Trump Tax Cuts and the reduction in the Tax Deductions of State and Local Taxes (SALT) on practice locations throughout the United States.  You don't have to be trying to start-up a practice for this to matter!  Read More
"All The Good Places to Practice Are GONE!"

How Far is Too Far? The Dentist Commute
We are in the business of helping dentists determine where the best, most fertile places to practice can be found.  That is not really so difficult.  But when it comes to determining how far is "too far" to consider a place to practice relative to your home or other office sites, it can be...  Read More
