English is a funny language. Words that are spelled the same can have different pronunciations and wildly different meanings. Words that are spelled differently can mean the exact same thing.

As I travel around the country and meet with fascinating dentists I always wonder what makes one person grow and expand?

What did I learn from my recent trip to Greece?

Let me give you a little preview why I even decided to write this, I promise at the end it will all make sense! My story is a typical immigrant story, the one where you work all the time, build a business and work some more. The word vacation is sort of on the border […]

The Myth of the 5% Dental Supplies Budget

After two years of closely watching 130 practices across the United States waste money on dental supplies, we decided to study the problem and shed some light on the issue.
