BOP and gingivitis: It’s time to draw a line in the sand
View online | February 2, 2017 | Forward to a Friend

What do you do when you suddenly can’t do what you went to school for?

A friend needs help, because he is suddenly unable to practice for an unknown length of time due to an accident. So, along with other colleagues, you donate time to keep your friend's practice up and running. But for how long? A lot is on the line—figuring out how to make overhead, juggling to meet patients’ needs, all the while hoping you won’t screw things up because you’re working in an unfamiliar environment. This recent event happened to a colleague of mine, and I'm considering it a wake-up call to think about emergency preparedness plans should I become unable to practice. Toss into the mix various types of disability insurance plans, and it becomes overwhelming.

I encourage you to make sure you are covered should an accident happen to you. Dental Economics magazine has a slew of articles on this topic, and our new newsletter—Principles of Practice Management, headed by DE’s superhero, Dr. Chris Salierno—will definitely focus on disability and disaster preparedness in future issues. Sign up for that newsletter if you haven’t already. In the meantime, I wish my colleague a speedy recovery.
