Align your C.E. planning with your business plan

07/11/2014
Continuing education (C.E.) is an important aspect of being a dentist, and while it can take up time and resources to make sure the appropriate amount of C.E. units are taken, dentists should use it as an opportunity to improve their practice on the business side as well as the clinical side. Developing a business plan is a fundamental step dentists should take if they want to make their practices run more efficiently. Make sure you align your C.E. planning with your business plan.
