Financial Planning is a Collaborative Process

After working hard to get through dental school, the transition into the professional practice of promoting oral health and alleviating patient discomfort unveils another dimension — that of a small business owner. The reality is that you’re balancing being a practicing health professional and running a small business.

Mercer Advisors will collaborate with you to create a wealth management plan that aligns your personal goals, family goals, and the goals you have for your practice. Whether you’re early or advanced in your career and personal life, we have the experience to help.

Dental Professionals are Well-Positioned to Accumulate Wealth

With less than a year of experience, dental professionals make an average salary above $100,000, while those with more than 20 years of experience make an average salary above $160,000.3
