Defining Success in Dentistry in 2020 And Beyond

by Gary Takacs | February 12, 2020

In today’s episode, Gary and Naren define success in 2020 and beyond. As a dentist, you may face many challenges during your career, such as the lack of success or the lack of joy in what you do. That ‘lack’ will eventually become a dark space you will get lost in. Gary and Naren speak frankly about how changing to a positive mindset and being in the profession for all the right reasons can keep you out of that dark space and into a successful, joyful dental career. It’s up to you to start today in actively looking for joy and happiness. When you do, you will find success in dentistry.
