Coronavirus impact on dental practices: Top 5 recession rebounding strategies for dentists (Video)

May 20, 2020
Dr. Brady Frank is familiar with helping dentists tackle a recession. In this discussion with Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, he shares what dentists can do immediately to rebound, as well as how they can gear up to thrive for the long-term.

In this discussion with Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, Dr. Brady Frank’s central theme is how dentists can convert liabilities into assets, such as the staff and overhead expenses. Dr. Frank says he fell in love with implants in 1999, when this area was still a specialty. When he shopped for dental practices following dental school, he quickly realized he had no business training, so he self-educated. He has since shared what he learned with his fellow dentists.

When faced with recently closing dental practices, he focused on what he did during the recession that followed 9/11, and this included buying other practices at very good prices. Dr. Frank found that buying practices at reasonable prices when coming out of a recession is a good way to increase assets and help other dentists. Today he widely promotes DDSOs, dentist-owned dental service organizations.

He also explains what he means by “total dental freedom,” and how dentists can achieve this. Watch here to find out more of Dr. Frank’s post-recession ideas to help dentists thrive.
