 In The Dentalpreneur Podcast

Dr. Dave BenderDSN co-founder Dr. David Bender joins me for this episode of The Dentalpreneur Podcast. Dr. Bender is a multiple practice owner in the Indianapolis area. He officially hung up the handpiece just before his 40th birthday. His success, though, did not come without hardship. His first start up collected 144k the first year with 200% overhead. With debt mounting and a pregnant wife, he only had one option. Make it work. Tune into the episode to find out how he did!

During our conversation, we discuss:

  • Fear setting and making it through the worst case scenario
  • Going from collecting 144k a year to an 28 op practice with a 100 seat training facility
  • The challenges and forecasting of phasing out of clinical dentistry
  • A few takeaways from working in a corporate setting
  • Why associate driven startups can be so expensive
  • An internal referral system that generates 150 new patients a month
