For new dentists, there can be a lot to learn when it comes to creating or running a small business.
Establishing the necessary business elements and learning how to run a successful dental practice can provide challenges early in one’s career. Sodium Dental took an approach in effort to help dental students bridge the gap.
On June 14, 2019 Sodium Dental graciously hosted the delightful dinner event at the Graduate in Ann Arbor. We are proud of the efforts to reach out to The University of Michigan – Alpha Omega (Chi Chapter), a worldwide dental fraternity founded in 1907. All of the attendees were either 3rd or 4th year dental students curious to find what the future may hold for them.
Shawn Hall, founder of Sodium Systems LLC presented the basic structure of “The DOs and DON’Ts of starting digital in Dentistry.” As a strong advocate in the Dental Technology field of more than 15 years, he reflected his personal experience of what starting a digital practice may encounter especially when investing in products like digital X-ray sensors that can have significant ongoing costs. Topics introduced included: The Budget Quandary, The Cloud Is Just Someone Else’s Server, and Seeing Truth Beyond the Marketing. Students learned how to plan dental technology in a private development, why not to buy brand name in dental technology, and buying tools and not toys for a practice.
Educating dental students on dental technology and private practice development is a passion for Sodium Dental with the belief that helping dentists be more successful is a natural and expected value for any technology company in dentistry.
