Dr. Carol J. Austin
I would like to say that I have enjoyed Dental Economics for many years. I appreciate the efforts of Dr. Joe Blaes, his staff, and all of the contributors. I have learned valuable management information from the articles and feel it is a win-win-win magazine, the authors, and the readers.
If "management company" authors gain clients from their exposure in Dental Economics, I am glad. In their articles, they are freely sharing expertise which we, in turn, can freely implement into our practices. To have an author mention his or her management company in the text of the article is not appropriate. To eliminate the authors who have something to sell would leave Dental Economics void of articles.
I like your "author`s biographies" with the accompanying pictures separate from the articles. It provides an easy reference for me. I also like the inclusion of articles on controversial issues and different viewpoints. Our dental future is exciting with the explosion of clinical techniques and management strategies.
