Doctors, just like everyone else, get older. Along with our parents and older relatives a part of life becomes telling those we care about our wishes for end of life. Check out Conversation Starter Kit, free, . You or those you care about will be guided thought a number of questions important to planning your affairs. Also have found it helpful to review, Center for Practical Bioethics, free materials at on clarifying values, and desires to pass on.
I am pleased to announce that the newest revisions of the two American Dental Association publications I have co-authored are now available. The two publications are, The Practical Guide to Associateship: Success Strategies for Dentist – Owners and Prospective Associates and The Practical Guide to Valuing a Practice: A Manual for Dentists. They can be ordered directly from the ADA or from our webstore at www.BerningAffiliates.com. Note Berning & Affiliates also offers a Companion Reader for each title that directs readers considering a practice transition to key sections of the pertinent ADA publication.
In all I have undertaken six revisions of the publications since 1988, with the titles modified by the ADA from time to time. Thousands of doctors have purchased the publications over the years. I have been very fortunate to have outstanding co-authors. My co-author for the first 5 revisions was Larry Domer, MBA, DBA, AVA, now Professor Emeritus at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry, and my current co-author is Paul Baumann, CPA, ABV, CFF, CGMA, ASA, partner at Baumann Moreau.
