Turns out I had a congenital heart defect and had to have my aortic valve replaced. My open heart surgery was 5 weeks ago and it went very well – I now have normal heart function and blood flow instead of the 18 percent I was running on before. I’m excited as now I think I may be able to accomplish something substantial given my new energy level and stamina! Anyway the blog will return to the normal 2-3 posts a week and I look forward to the interaction. I wanted to share a couple things now though.
- I have a new, free Facebook group open to all dental professionals discussing my new practice model in detail. It’s called The Smiley Face Experience and I encourage you to join and have a look if you want to see where we believe the profession is heading. This new model is not just about fees – your fee can be whatever you like – it’s about a mindset and systems and customer engagement and efficiency among other things. Click here to have a look.
- Don’t forget to charge your corporation(s) for the use of your house for any corporate events you’ve had at your home over the last year. Most of us have several and should take advantage of the Masters Rule to pay ourselves tax free money in the form of rent. I am not an accountant or lawyer and am not telling you how to do this only making you aware – talk to your accountant before doing anything but do so quickly as you need to do this before Dec 31.
Its good to be back in the saddle – I appreciate your patience and look forward to more spirited interaction in the future.
