Dentists are known as a group of passionate, skilled professionals, but even they at times need some help getting reinspired. There are moments, regardless of your love for the job, where you will wonder what you’re doing and if you’re having an effect on patients. We get it!
When you have your head down moving from patient to patient, it’s hard to get a full picture of what’s happening and how you’re helping.
So this is the dentists’ guide to getting reinspired.

Growing up in Southern California, Dr. Scott Brookshire graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1993. Soon after, Scott bought his first practice in Craig, Alaska which is a tight-knit community of ~1,200 citizens located on a large island off the coast of southern Alaska called Prince of Wales. Scott moved to Alaska not knowing anyone and started running his newly bought practice in pursuit of his passion for providing dental care. Although Dr. Brookshire had enough education to practice dentistry without hurting anyone, he did not have the necessary knowledge of running a business. This part was especially hard due to the circumstance that Dr. Brookshire was in being the only dentist on the island. The power of the internet played a huge role in Dr. Brookshire’s development as a business owner and is how he learned about Keating Dental Arts 15 years ago. Dr. Brookshire did most of the business operations on top of practicing dentistry and believed he could do it all, however, he realized this model was impossible. Learn how Dr. Brookshire started his practice and the importance of having an outside consultant for business operations and accounting. Scott and Shaun discuss the benefits of using a digital scanner for taking impressions to save shipping and product costs, increase turnaround times, and the benefits of digital precision.
