Note: Based on his extensive experience with dentists over the past 30 years, Dr. Roger P.
Levin has authored a new book entitled The 31 Biggest Mistakes Dentists Make. His
premise is simple. As he says in the introduction, “we can learn from our mistakes. But
isn’t it better to learn from other people’s mistakes?”
Following is an excerpt from the forthcoming book.
Mistake #2: Relying on your accountant for your vision and goals
Why do dentists lean so heavily on their accountants to answer so many questions? Over
the years, I’ve realized that CPAs are the only people many dentists ever talk to about their
finances. The accountant provides a level of comfort, but using such an expert the right
way is essential.
You should seek counsel from a broad array of advisors, but first you need to create a
vision â where you want the practice to be in 3 to 5 years â and what goals should be
met along the way. Then you can have those evaluated not only by your accountant but
also by other experts who have dentistry-specific knowledge. Otherwise, the practice may
fail to reach its potential or, even worse, begin to decline on a consistent basis.
