What is this CE course all about?

Despite the myriad of benefits that dentists get to enjoy, including a high income, a less-than five day workweek, and the opportunity to be a business owner, many are miserable. This can be sourced to 3 main factors: body pain, isolation, and debt. In this one hour presentation, Dr. Gupta shares the stories of many dentists, and how they intentionally changed the trajectory of their lives.

I Want My Back Back
1.5 CE Credits

Dr. Gupta graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2004. Upon completing a 1 year general practice residency in Cleveland, OH, he started a private practice in a suburb west of Cleveland. After 3-4 years of “treading water,” he shifted his focus and aggressively sought the study of core business principles, resulting in a tremendous increase in profit margin, decrease in stress, and a more meaningful professional identity.

Dr. Gupta lectures for several dental society study clubs, dental society annual sessions, post-doctoral residency programs, and several CE offerings throughout the country, ending all of his presentations with practical, realistic, implementable ways to be better.
