“I’ll Never Retire” Part III

Part III Last time we discussed positive reasons (Love what we’re doing) for continuing to practice for an extended period.

Hobbies and family are good starting places. Joining clubs or other community groups build connections with people who may provide exposure to other activities. b) Join the ARD to connect with other dentists who are also working at solving this problem because these challenges are difficult to resolve in isolation. c) Consider doing volunteer dentistry. It can give a great sense of purpose.
