As dentistry becomes more robust, dentists continue to look for ways to stand out, including becoming their own entrepreneurs.

Here are five ways dentists can become dental entrepreneurs, according to Santhosh Kumar, DDS, CEO of Just Dental, and cited by Entrepreneur.

1. Chose co-branded dentistry: By opting for a co-branded dentistry model, dentists can own their own dental practice while receiving administrative infrastructure and support with non-clinical aspects.

2. Understand the challenges and solutions: Interacting with other successful dentists can offer insight into how to tackle new challenges. Dentists should identify any solutions that can be implemented across clinics and can be monetized.

3. Continue to undergo dental education: Dental school often limits students' understanding of advanced dentistry. Dentists should seek out education on the latest developments in the field.

4. Introduce innovation: Dentists can bring innovation to their practice with new technologies or services. Innovations can be designed to solve basic challenges or improve quality overall.

5. Bridge the gaps: Dentists must understand gaps in the dental market. Then they can explore solutions for how to reach new patients and untapped markets.
