I am a dentist with 2 years of clinical and administrative experience while working at a dental practice. After my first year of practice, I started off with a franchise of a healthy beverages company (I have been a longtime customer of the same). Through this, I’ve learned I enjoy the business side of healthcare more than the clinical.
