“I don’t ask for the sights in front of me to change, only the depth of my seeing.” ~ Anonymous

If you were to stop and reflect a moment on how you’ve run your practice over the years, would you consider yourself successful because you did things contrary to traditional dentistry? Or would you place yourself among the majority of dentists who think the same way?  

So much of dentistry focuses on working hard for many years to achieve wealth and happiness in retirement. But what if after years of working, you see no end in sight? You’ve expanded, hired, worked longer hours … yet your profits remain the same. 

It’s possible your traditional way of thinking about success has gotten in the way of thinking in a new direction.

We’d like to introduce you to Dr. John O’Rourke, who, much like Dr. Tom Peterson from our Wealthiest Dentist report, sought more out of his practice. He was convinced he needed more capacity and that adding two more chairs to his location would help him push past his $235K per month production.  

Though this seems rational, we’ve seen all too many times this train of thought leading only to frustration — not newfound wealth. Sure, you’re ready to take on new ways of growing, but every time you try, you get lost in the details that ultimately halt your progress. This is exactly what was happening to Dr. O’Rourke, until he sat down with us and learned how to get out of the way of his own average thinking. 

Once we were done helping Dr. O’Rourke think differently about his production potential, he more than doubled his monthly profit. And he didn’t do it by living at his office 24/7. In fact, he cut his workload from 4.5 days per week in 2019-2020 to 3 in 2021. 

We’d like to invite you to excuse your old way of thinking and explore an alternative that focuses on your production potential. Discover how Dr. O’Rourke, like Dr. Peterson, wiggled out of average thought and opened a whole world of opportunity that brought him wealth and the time to enjoy it. Our newest report on how he did it is available now — “The 6 Million Dollar Dentist.”
