NEWS & PUBLICATIONS

Dentistry Publications

For those dentists looking to take the plunge into business ownership, Synstrat’s two publications, 50 Rules for Financial Success as a Dentist and Buying and Selling General & Specialist Dental Practices are available free of charge. Submit your request below and advise which publication you would like to receive.

To obtain a copy of the 335-page Synstrat Dental Stories make a tax deductible donation to the Delany Foundation, a charity which brings hope and opportunity into the lives of young people deprived of education in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Kenya and Ghana, including medical aid and meals to enable kids to participate in learning. The charity is administered by volunteers, and hence every dollar collected is spent on those in need.

To find out how to make your donation, fill in the form below and we will contact you to let you know. Once you have confirmed your donation with us a copy will be sent to you.

Other recent newsletters and articles are shown below. These are excerpts from Synstrat News, published regularly and distributed to our clients.
