Through what he calls “trial and error,” Dr. David Ting has built Boston Dental Group into one of the most recognized dental entities in Las Vegas.

Through what he calls “trial and error,” Dr. David Ting has built Boston Dental Group into one of the most recognized dental entities in Las Vegas.

With 18 locations throughout Las Vegas and plans to expand to California, Arizona, and northern Nevada, Dr. Ting recently sat down with Dental Practice Management during the Henry Schein Business of Dentistry Conference to talk about his business model, why his practices are growing and prospering, and why he believes so strongly that dentists should be entrepreneurs.

“We started as a solo practitioner and started to recruit an associate doctor,” Dr. Ting explained. “We began incorporating technology and management systems and we’ve been growing ever since.”

Dr. Ting was one of more than 1,100 attendees at the Business of Dentistry and one of the panelists during the Dentalpreneur portion of the conference, explaining his beliefs in the dentist becoming a strong businessperson.

“For us, it’s a constant learning experience,” Dr. Ting said. “The number one thing for us to realize and always remember is that we don’t know what we don’t know. We learn a lot from new grads.”

Dr. Ting has a simple piece of advice for his colleagues out there.

“Learn from the best. Surround yourself with the best,” Dr. Ting said. “Constantly look for things that you don’t know about and don’t be afraid to ask questions.”

You can hear more thoughts from Dr. Ting in our exclusive interview below.

Additionally, we chatted with Keith Drayer, vice president of Henry Schein Financial Services, and asked him about the Dentalpreneur portion of the conference.

Finally, Matt Singerman and Michael Allsop of Henry Schein Practice Solutions sat down with us to talk about the conference and why it has become a must-attend event for so many dental professionals.
