The Very Dental Podcast Network

Going directly into private practice from dental school is less common than it used to be. Today's guest is Dr. Nicholas Bottorff and he did just that. Now he's a practice owner and one of Incisal Edge's "40 Under 40." Nicholas made some big moves early in his career and many of these moves happened after he asked the right questions. 

What are the things you need to know about an associateship? What questions really get to the heart of the matter when evaluating a potential associateship or practice purchase. Dr. Bottorff has a lot of thoughts on this as well as encouraging the use of technology to grow your practice.
