Looking to retire or sell your practice? 

Or, are you a new dentist searching for your spot at table as either employee or owner?


Sharing wisdom learned from 40+ years in clinical practice, David teaches proven protocols for increasing the net value of the dental practice and advising new dentists on the myriad of practice options. His comprehensive courses cover the essentials for ensuring the clinician is prepared for the inevitable transition, whether it be employment, retirement, partnership, purchase or sell.

David worked in dentistry for over forty years where he had a very distinguished career in clinical practice. He entered dentistry as an associate in the practice he ultimately purchased. He transitioned the practice to a group practice in the mid 1980’s where it became one of the biggest and very respected groups in the Chicago area. He oversaw the transformation of the practice into three doctors and thirteen full time employees by acquiring another practice and hiring highly skilled talent. His ability with creating the vision, articulating it to his team, and adjusting/making changes as needed provided the essential leadership for achieving his desired outcome. David retired from clinical practice in 2017 and left a lasting legacy in his practice and his community.


During David’s years in clinical practice he was involved in many activities. He served on multiple committees and leadership positions in the Chicago Dental Society including President of the North Suburban Branch. He served as a Trustee on the Illinois State Dental Society Board of Trustees and other committee positions. He was head instructor for the Sophomore Endodontic Lab Technique Course at Loyola University Dental School for five years. He was also a clinical instructor at The Las Vegas Institute, has been published in their periodical LVI Visions and earned Fellowship through LVI. David is driven by his passion to help dentists be successful.

David believes the future of dentistry will be vastly different than the dental world he entered years ago. Since the development of dental consolidation with various types of groups and corporations, dentists need to know which path is best for them. He is dedicated to helping dentists find their way through this maze and what niche fits them best. There is no right answer - just the right answer for you.

David has many activities he enjoys which include snow skiing, fishing, biking, woodworking/ woodturning and running. He is an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, Bears and Blackhawks. Besides sports he has taken up learning to play the piano, which he feels is his greatest challenge.
