Starting your practice from nothing can be tough; you need to find clients, choose your location, and find a competent team, all while covering your costs and earning a profit. Here to help is our guest, Dr. Solomon Poyourow who has plenty of useful advice and key insights from establishing and running his practice for the past seven years. Tuning in you’ll hear some of the hard lessons that Solomon had to learn, like why it’s important to hire a good contractor and how quality disability coverage is crucial for oral surgeons. Solomon shares some of the biggest challenges he faced when he was starting out, like finding a competent team of staff that worked well together and learning about unsecured property tax. Later Solomon unpacks some of the challenges and benefits of sharing a practice with other partners, and why it really helps to mitigate risk when you first start your practice. Solomon shares some valuable tips for choosing your location and explains which specialists you want to see a high concentration of and why that bodes well for your oral surgery practice. We also hear some very useful details about the costs of running a practice and how to go about opening up a solo practice while doing work as an independent contractor. We loved having Solomon on the show and we are sure you’ll find the conversation as thought-provoking as we did. Join us today for an eye-opening conversation on what it takes to start up a practice from scratch!
