Dr. Kambiz Sadraei Shares 5 Tips to Help Aspiring Dentists Build Successful Careers

There are many fruitful career options for aspiring dentists, but getting your foot in the door can be difficult. For dental professionals at the beginning of their professional journeys, trying to turn your job into a career or a practice can be frustrating. But according to successful dentist Dr. Kambiz Sadraei, it is entirely possible – as long as you keep in mind the following tips.

  1. Always Be Learning

“A lot of dentists feel as though their education stops when they leave school,” says Dr. Sadraei. “But that attitude can prevent you from being open to new technology as it develops.” According to Dr. Sadraei, the world of dentistry is continuously developing and coming up with more comfortable and better ways to do things. “Stay open to learning new things so that you can bring new technology to your patients.”

  1. Think Like an Entrepreneur

If you start your own practice or help someone else manage theirs, you are taking a step out of dentistry and into business, said Dr. Sadraei. “You need to start thinking like an entrepreneur. Budget effectively and invest in marketing.” Dr. Sadraei recommends consulting a business coach or investing in social media growth packages to help you create and grow your brand. If running a business doesn’t come naturally to you, hire an office manager and a digital marketing manager to help you with the finer points.

  1. Have a Rainy Day Fund

According to Dr. Sadraei, you cannot plan for everything. Unexpected occurrences will pop up. “Someone will quit, your rent will get raised, or some other unanticipated issue will come to pass,” said Dr. Sadraei. “That’s why it is important to save a rainy day fund for use on these occasions – especially during the early years of your career.”

  1. Hire Wisely

According to Dr. Sadraei, your staff is the brand face of your practice. Your receptionists should be welcoming and responsive, and your hygienists or technicians should be helpful and caring. “Retain good staff by hiring the right people the first time,” said Dr. Kambiz Sadraei. “Attract talented employees by offering competitive wages, benefits, and a supportive work environment.”


  1. Understand Your Client’s Financial Burdens

Dental procedures can be a financial burden for a lot of people. Dr. Sadraei recommends approaching financial topics with compassion. “Offer financing options or alternative payback methods,” said Dr. Kambiz Sadraei. “Patients will appreciate your flexibility and become lifelong clients of yours.”
