TRANSCENDING DENTAL EDUCATION

The Schuster Center Celebrates 30th Anniversary for Professional Dental Development
News Release Scottsdale, AZ – While dentists work to preserve their patients’ smiles, Michael Schuster, DDS of The Schuster’s Center for Professional Development, 9312 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale, AZ is working to preserve the smiles of his fellow dentists.

The Schuster Center for Professional Development, considered to be one the leading dental practice management schools for dentists in the U.S., is celebrating its 30th year in business. In honor of The Center’s third decade in business, a special nationwide touring schedule for The Science of Creating Wealth™ has been launched in tandem with an upcoming Spring release of Dr. Schuster’s provocative book by the same name.

The intensive dental management seminars and courses provide individualized, hands-on training that help them create a practice that is more profitable, fulfilling and congruent with a healthier, happier lifestyle.

The Practice Development Curriculum consists of several programs for dental management: Strategic Planning; The Management Program; Performance Coach; Health and Profit in Hygiene and Advanced Case Presentation. Through these programs, individual strategies are developed to address issues such as cash flow, overhead, communication, marketing, organization, time management, case acceptance and team development.

Since 1978, thousands of dentists have attended The Center’s dental management programs and dental management seminars. Schuster describes most attendees as dentists who have been in practice for 10 to 12 years, are frustrated in their current position, and want to achieve a better work life balance.

“These are dedicated professionals who are struggling to keep up with dentistry’s changing landscape,” said Schuster. “They have tried different approaches, but things aren’t working. “What is it all about? Why am I moving this fast? I’m making money, but I’m not enjoying my life” is something we hear over and over again.”

Schuster was inspired to create a dental business management school in the early 1970s while lecturing at the Pankey Institute in Florida. He noted that the attendees flocked to the institute for dental continuing education, but at night they would commiserate with one another about how they were struggling to pay bills, were behind on their taxes, and their ongoing challenge to hire and keep quality personnel.

Schuster had struggled with the same problems in the early part of his practice. After graduating from Marquette Dental School in 1966 and serving a two-year stint in the military, Schuster launched a successful practice in Dubuque, Iowa. Within a five-year period his staff grew from two to five, and his income increased five-fold. Unfortunately, his happiness and health declined. When a bleeding ulcer landed him in the hospital, he knew it was time to reevaluate his work life balance.

He enrolled in classes at the Pankey Institute, and later became one of the instructors. With the help of a friend and mentor from the Professional Economics Bureau, Schuster and Jim Trask created a set of models that allowed the young dentist to gain control of his finances, budget time, and communicate more effectively with patients. After using the model successfully, Schuster felt compelled to create his own school where he could help his colleagues become more proficient in dental management, an area that was completely overlooked in dental school.

Thirty years after its inception, The Center consists of Schuster (the CEO and practicing dentist) a staff of 17, as well as 15 dentists in the mentor program. With Schuster’s help, the staff evaluates each client’s dental practice and provides custom programs for practice improvement, as well as monthly support and coaching.

The intensive programs are not for everyone, but those who commit to The Center’s curriculum model reap huge rewards, both personally and economically.

The Schuster Center for Professional Development is the first business school created exclusively for dentists. Established in 1978, Dr. Schuster has guided thousands of graduates to achieve wealth and freedom. Dr. Schuster is a cadre and former director at the Pankey Institute, adjunct faculty at The Dawson Center, OBI and LSU Cosmetic Continuum.

NEW BOOK HELPS DENTISTS SMILE AGAIN

Dr. Michael Schuster’s Book, The Science of Creating Wealth, Creates Smiles in Dental Community
News Release Scottsdale, AZ – There could be a lot more smiling dentists across the U.S. if Dr. Michael Schuster, a practicing dentist and the CEO of The Schuster Center for Professional Development, 9312 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale has his way.

Schuster’s new book, The Science of Creating Wealth™, which debuted in Spring 2008, outlines the proven, predictable financial model he has used for 35 years to help dentists create wealth through their dental practice.

“Unlike many books that focus on how to make a killing in the stock market or in real estate or numerous other “get rich quick” schemes, this book is about building the financial capacity to live the life you want to create,” said author, Robert Fritz, author of The Path of Least Resistance.

“Dr. Schuster has his own unique approach. His method includes how to build your capability to generate wealth over time from multidimensional vantage points such as external factors like logistics, debt, and discipline, to internal factors like the inner workings of your mind, heart, spirit, and soul.”

The Science of Creating Wealth™ encompasses the concepts Schuster has put into practice for more than three decades. The book was released in tandem with his current, four-hour seminar of the same name which is touring nationwide. Book orders, as well as Schuster’s schedule of seminars are available by calling 1-800-288-9393.

The book complements Schuster’s intensive management seminars and courses that provide dentists with individualized, hands-on training that help them create a practice that is more profitable, fulfilling and congruent with a healthier, happier lifestyle.

The Practice Development Curriculum consists of several programs: Strategic Planning; The Management Program; Performance Coach; Health and Profit in Hygiene and Advanced Case Presentation.

BRIDGING THE GAP

The Schuster Center and XCPT™ Team Up to Help Dentists and Their Patients

News Release Scottsdale, AZ – The Schuster Center for Professional Development, considered one of the leading practice management schools for dentists in the U.S., and XCPT™ Communication Technologies, LLC, a leading edge software development company that creates unique products for dentistry, have joined forces to help dentists.

The Schuster Center learned about XCPT’s software and saw how it differed from other software applications because of the program’s unique ability to take patients’ clinical photographs, radiographs, cone beam images or CT scans and provide a document that could bring treatment planning recommendations to light.

Since a picture is easier to understand than an explanation, it also helps dentists communicate more effectively with their patients. Using a unique method of image manipulation, annotation and magnification tools, XCPT provides a document that enables the patient to see and understand the total package of treatment planning.

The software development company (www.xcpt.com) recognized The Schuster Center for Professional Development’s dedication to improve patient care, as well as its effectiveness in teaching dentists how to generate high profits, reduce workload, be more efficient in their dental practice. Once The Schuster Center and XCPT recognized how they were working toward the same goals to help dentists in their practices, as well as improve patient care, a natural alliance was formed.

“We’re proud to have aligned ourselves with one of the leading organizations in dentistry,” said Steven Feldman, DDS, Founder and CEO of XCPT. “The Schuster Center’s philosophy of improving patient care while maximizing the quality of dentist’s lives ties in perfectly with our corporate vision of creating powerful, personalized communication tools to be used by doctors and their patients.”

The Schuster Center’s intensive practice management seminars and courses provide dentists with individualized, hands-on training that help them create a practice that is more profitable, fulfilling and congruent with a healthier, happier lifestyle.

SCOTTSDALE BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR DENTISTS CELEBRATES 30 YEARS

Michael Schuster’s Book, The Science of Creating Wealth™, Creates Smiles in Dental Community

News Release Scottsdale, AZ – In 1978, Sony introduced the Walkman, the Bee Gees crooned “Staying Alive” and everyone was grumbling because the cost of a stamp went from 13 to 15 cents. It was also the year Dr. Michael Schuster, a practicing dentist in the Valley, opened the doors of The Schuster Center for Professional Development.

In the three decades that have passed, Walkmen have been replaced with ipods, disco died and with online banking and email, who needs a stamp? However, one thing has not changed. The Schuster Center, now located at 9312 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale, is still going strong and it is still one of the leading practice management schools for dentists in the U.S.

Since its inception, thousands of dentists have attended the dental business school, either at the Scottsdale facility, or through special seminars Dr. Schuster conducts throughout the U.S. The intensive management seminars and courses provide dentists with individualized, hands-on training that help them create a practice that is more profitable, fulfilling and congruent with a healthier, happier lifestyle.

In honor of The Center’s third decade in business, a special nationwide touring schedule for The Science of Creating Wealth™ has been launched in tandem with an upcoming Spring release of Dr. Schuster’s provocative book by the same name.

ORAL REVIEW

Dentists Give Word-of-Mouth Endorsement for Case Presentation Class

News Release Scottsdale, AZ – While dentists throughout the U.S. have enrolled in hundreds of dental continuing education courses, seminars and workshops over the past 30 years, one class has consistently received rave reviews – Case Presentation with Dr. Michael Schuster.

The Schuster Center for Professional Development, 9312 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale, AZ has been surveying its clients for three decades. Case Presentation has always been on the top of the list of the dentists’ favorite classes, according to Barb Stackhouse, a dental hygienist who helps facilitate and organize the Case Presentation classes with Dr. Schuster.

The class is part of the intensive management seminars and courses The Schuster Center offers to provide dentists with individualized, hands-on training that help them create a practice that is more profitable, fulfilling and congruent with a healthier, happier lifestyle.

“In my early days of practice, we used to hire consultants to come in to help us manage our practice,” said Mike Robichaux, D.D.S. an alumnus of The Schuster Center’s Practice Development Curriculum. “It seemed that each firm we hired had its own agenda. They tried to make my practice fit their idea of how a practice should look. Nothing seemed to “stick”. Soon after they left, we went back to doing things the same way. What I realized later was that they didn’t go deep enough with us. What we needed was an identification of our values, those things which we held to be very important, how to set up, and how to run our practice in such a way as to allow those values to be expressed. The Schuster Center was the only place we went where they did just that. They helped us create the practice that was right for not only us, but also for our patients.”

The Practice Development Curriculum consists of several programs: Strategic Planning; The Management Program; Performance Coach; Health and Profit in Hygiene and Advanced Case Presentation. Through these programs, individual strategies are developed to address management issues such as cash flow, overhead, communication, marketing, organization, time management, case acceptance and team development.

Stackhouse, who is a faculty member of The Schuster Center, as well as serving as a dental hygienist and assistant to Dr. Schuster in his private dental practice, says she understands why dentists benefit so much from the program and why the Case Presentation section is such a hit with the dentists.

“Case Presentation is at the heart of what the dentists do. I am in the classroom for the duration of this topic when it is presented and you can really feel the positive energy flow when Dr. Schuster teaches this class,” said Stackhouse.

Graduates from Dr. Schuster’s programs confirm what Stackhouse says.

“It was the Case Presentation workshop that put the practice of dentistry into a new light for me,” said Dr. Robichaux. “It proved to me that we could put the patient’s best interests first and still have a thriving, incredibly rewarding practice of dentistry. I was taught a new way to come to my patients, one that allowed me to be an advocate for the patient and to have the patient recognize that fact. Suddenly I was a friend, working with the patients to find ways to help them get what they wanted. Remarkably, all the stress and tension associated with presenting dentistry simply went away. Case acceptance soared. A steady busyness and increased profitability followed. Of course, this didn’t happen overnight. I took the workshop several times. Each time I took it I heard things I hadn’t heard before, even though I was sure they were told to me at previous sessions.”

T.J. Bolt, D.D.S. also offered his thoughts about the program:

“First of all, Case Presentation taught me self respect as a dentist. It helped to understand the art of the examination (structure), to go from a doctor collecting data, to a co-discovery process, where the patient learned about their condition as it related to their health. It helped me understand a process that I directed, so that the patient could understand what role that they played in the health process. It taught me how to structure a patient’s care so that I could help them break out of the disease cycle. It helped me to understand that I was a facilitator. That the true meaning of a doctor was not a “treator” but a teacher.”

Many of the topics covered in the Case Presentation class are also outlined in Dr. Schuster’s DVD/CD-ROM program, Truth Based SellingSM. The audio/video program encompasses the concepts Schuster has put into practice for more than three decades. Truth Based SellingSM audio/video program orders, as well as Schuster’s schedule of seminars, are available by calling 1-800-288-9393.

OVERWORKED AND STILL TOO POOR TO RETIRE?

Michael Schuster’s Book, The Science of Creating Wealth™, Offers Strategic Plan for Dentists and Entrepreneurs to Achieve Happiness and Prosperity

News Release Scottsdale, AZ – Can you imagine individuals who have earned up to $50 million in their lifetime and still do not have enough money to retire? Dr. Michael Schuster, a practicing dentist and the CEO of The Schuster Center for Professional Development, 9312 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale, AZ not only has seen this anomaly thousands of times, his new book, The Science of Creating Wealth™, offers a solution.

The book provides readers with a structure for success using the proven models and concepts Dr. Schuster has put into practice for more than three decades. Although written for dentists, the model is also appropriate for anyone who owns their own business.

The book, which retails for $47.95 including shipping, has been released in tandem with Dr. Schuster’s current, four-hour seminar of the same name which is touring nationwide. Book orders, as well as Schuster’s schedule of seminars are available by calling 1-800-288-9393.

In his early practice, Dr. Schuster built a thriving business. But when a bleeding ulcer landed him in the hospital, he knew it was time to reevaluate his life and practice. Inspired to help other dentists avoid the physical, as well as the financial difficulties that plague most dentists, he created a business school for dentists in the early 1970s.

After working with thousands of dentists in a span of 35 years, Schuster decided to write a book that outlines the proven, predictable financial model he has used over the past three decades.

The following is an interview with Dr. Schuster about his book:

Q1: What is the basic idea behind the book, The Science of Creating Wealth™?

MS: My team and I have been interviewing, training and coaching dentists in the areas of business development, sales and leadership for many years. Yet, the #1 concern of dentists and their families in private practice is financial security. An interesting thing is dentists, in their careers, will take in someplace between $25 and $50 million. Yet only 5% can afford to retire. I thought that since I’ve worked with a few thousand dentists over these years on a one on one basis, it would be worthwhile to share what truly successful dentists have learned. When I use the term ‘wealth’, I’m not talking about getting rich. True wealth is about health, abundance, peace, happiness, and in the end, having the time to find and pursue what is truly important in your life.

Q2: Are the statistics you mentioned reflective of dentists, or are these numbers similar in other professionals such as doctors and engineers?

MS: I have been told by financial planners that it is similar to other people who own their own small business. These business owners are walking around without a plan. They also don’t have strategies or models to control time or money, and they just get busy.

Q3. Who is the targeted audience for your book and why?

MS: My experience has been with dentists, but the models I use in The Science of Creating Wealth™ could really be used by any professional person, or anyone who owns their own small business. And by small I mean companies that bring in $20 million or less a year. These small family-owned businesses constitute 90% of the businesses in the United States. The type of business may vary, but the problems business owners face are basically the same–gaining control of time and money.

Q4: Why did you decide to write a book about this subject?

MS: The majority of Americans have joined the rat race. In the blind pursuit of money, many lose focus of what is really, really important: rendering a great service, having plenty of time for rest and relation and time for recreation with family and friends. Since so many people live in a sea of money, yet constantly complain about not having enough, I was convinced that a book about creating wealth rather than reacting to money is sorely needed. I believe the statistics go like this, 90% of people react, and only 10% have a proactive or creative orientation toward money, time, relationships and life. The title of this book starts with “The Science”. The term ‘science’ means that the information comes from research-proven, reliable data. ‘Creating’ really means bringing into existence something that didn’t exist before – at least for me or you. ‘Wealth’ really means abundance or having enough. The Science of Creating Wealth™ is a predictable, reliable, proven way to create. I incorporate many of the principles from people I’ve studied with – Robert Fritz, who is noted for his series of books centered on The Path of Least Resistance, and Peter Senge from MIT.

Q5: What makes this book unique?

MS: It’s not the next get rich scheme. It’s not about buying or selling or some special technique that is going to get you rich overnight. It’s primarily about changing one’s life orientation towards money from scarcity to abundance. It’s about working to live rather than living to work. About putting money and finance into its proper perspective and not letting money rule our lives. We’re going to get control of it, or if we’ve lost control, we are going to regain control of it. It’s a book about principles. It’s a book about moving from a reactive orientation to money, to a creative orientation.

Q6: How will reading your book help dentists?

MS. Many dentists – and physicians – react to disease rather than help their patients create health. The primary life orientation of most of the clients in which I interact is reactive, and they leave creative. What better way to illustrate that point than to use money as a model? Most of us say we want enough money. But what we really want is more control of our own lives. What I perceive as an interesting progression is those who are chasing money say they never have enough time. You hear the old statement, “I owe, I owe, so off to work I go.” I think the majority of people get trapped in one of two domains. They get trapped in the money domain, which is the lowest level. Money is all about survival. And the next level is time. They get in this rat race of “the more I make, the more I spend.” The more I make, the bigger house I buy. Then I buy two houses. Then I have two houses and two cars. Which leads to “I owe I owe, so off to work I go” mentality. But unless dentists get control of time, they will never have time to do a comprehensive exam, or a comprehensive diagnosis. And a diagnosis is what is going on and why it is going on. In that model, the dentists won’t inform and educate their patients relative to the cause and effects of disease. They’ll just treat the disease. Patients are reactive and unless you change the course, you react with them.

Q7: What else would you like to add, or what questions do you think are important to answer regarding you, your book or the topic?

MS: Almost all people are moving too fast. Most are chasing something, they know not what. I meet very few dentists who are peaceful and have minimal stress. I meet very few dentists who say, “I love my life. I love my patients. I love the work I do.” Even those doing well suffer from distress and lack of freedom. They constantly worry about their practices. They live in what I call a scarcity mentality. They don’t live and practice from abundance. Abundance is “I have enough.” They are always living from “I don’t have enough.” Because of the way they practice and the lack of control of money and time, they seldom feel free to do and become what they want in life.

The Science of Creating Wealth™ is not simply about making money. It is about developing the creative freedom to become a more fully complete, alive, human being. I am fascinated by human behavior, even my own. Why do so many say one thing and do another? However, when a person takes control and accepts responsibility for their lives, everything changes. It is great to empower people with principles, strategies and the mindset that we are a creative power, that when we work together with others in synergy we can really evidence change in the world.
