Dentists, do you ever think to yourself the following?

-I wish my employees worked harder and were more dedicated.

-Managing staff is so frustrating

-I wish I could just practice the dentistry and not get stressed out by the staff.

-Why don't the staff care as much as I do?

-Why are my staff always bickering with each other and acting like children?

Welcome to the Permission to Lead course, designed exclusively for dentists by the visionary Dr. Tony Danny Nguyen (Dentist and owner of Damascus Dental). Recognizing that leadership skills aren't typically taught in dental education, Dr. Nguyen has pioneered a SYSTEM for cultivating these vital skills that can help even the most introverted and awkward of dentists become better leaders.

Dismissing the notion that leadership is an innate quality, Dr. Nguyen believes it can be learned. This course, provides the tools, skills, and confidence to embrace leadership roles within your dental practice.

Central to this course are the "4 Permissions of Leadership". Likened to the four wheels propelling a car forward, these are Permission to Provide, to Protect, to Partner, and for Purpose. Through these tenets, you'll learn to lead effectively and empathetically, fostering a positive environment for both your team and patients.

Join Dr. Nguyen in this 90-minute CE course and have a helpful bonus 75-Page included PDF companion manual by your side as you journey to become a better leader for your dental practice, your family, and yourself.

Dr. Tony D. Nguyen's journey as a dentist began with challenges, but he transformed them into stepping stones. An unexpected father by the age of only 17, he made his way to college and dental school, becoming the first in his family to do so, all while carrying the weight of massive student loans.

Within half a year of obtaining his dental license, with just a few thousand dollars to his name, Dr. Nguyen took over a dental practice. He was already a married man with two sons, married to his high school sweetheart.

His early days were filled with significant hurdles, including financial stress, high employee turnover, health neglect, lack of clear direction, and strained relationships with family due to his relentless focus on his business. However, the tipping point came when he acknowledged his neglect of his family, which led him to invest heavily in leadership development, seeking help from training, consulting, courses, and coaching.

Over the course of a year, not only did he revitalize his struggling dental practice to surpass his business goal of $1.2 million, but he also revitalized his relationships with his wife, children, patients, and team. Through these efforts, he discovered the joy of owning a business with less stress, more fun, and a greater positive impact. And it all started with becoming the leader he had it within himself to be all along.

Dr. Tony D. Nguyen went on to found the company Damascus Dental Coaching which teaches leadership principles to dentists all around the country to help them reclaim their inner strength and become a leader others want to follow.
