"Dentists do not work within a vacuum... they work within the normal parameters of business, but as dentists withdraw from normal business parameters a vacuum develops. By normal business practices, I mean giving people what they want and showing them what they need.

"Business is about being in service to people. The two most common things that keep people from going to the dentist are:

  • Being afraid of dental treatment

  • Not having dental insurance.

"The question I ask myself as a dentist is, when dentists withdraw from accepting credit, insurance, and partial-phased treatment plans, who is going to fill the vacuum to provide  care to the rest of the Americans who require phased treatment plans and credit to finance their needed care? Will it be dentistry, or someone else?"
