Being Dentist: Top 5 Problems Faced By Private Dental Practitioners In India

Written by Dr.Pranav Agale


The AGE Problem

      

If you have started your dental practice recently, you are DISMISSED as inexperienced

&
If you are old, sometimes you are DOUBTED to be outdated...!

 

 

The MONEY Problem

If you take a decent fee, some patients will CONSIDER you as greedy

&

If you take less, they are SKEPTICAL about your skills!

 

 

The TREATMENT Problem

If you try to give them cost effective treatment option they feel it is INCOMPLETE..

&

If you give best, they choose to COMPLETE the course of medicines and leave the treatment mid-way.!

 

 

PRESCREPTION & DIAGNOSIS

If you prescribe them mandatory medicines or ask for some investigations, they SUSPECT you do it for COMMISSION.

&

If you don't, you are SUSCEPTIBLE to be sued for OMISSION...!

 

 

The TIME Problem

If you do not give them time, they feel you are not EMPATHETIC.

&

If you give them too much time, they fear your competence is PATHETIC as you seem to have only a few patients and ample time...!
