If it’s already been done before... Then it must be possible!
I and many other dentists around the country already operate this remarkable business. Dear Colleague, I’m Dr. Rich Erickson, a dentist just like you (I’m the one with the hat on). I became financially independent and 100% debt free because of the income from this business and now you can have this same financial opportunity. I am the original developer of the in-office Dental Assistant Training School and have operated ours since 1987. In these next few minutes, I hope to open your eyes to the possibilities. Change is GOOD , change is FUN . This business is FUN and REWARDING. IT IS POSSIBLE!
“ Being 90% complete with the first class, I can say that everything went well and we are looking forward to many more successful classes. Eight students first summer class. Fifteen students paid with 2 weeks left until fall class.” Dr. Marty Lipsey, Modesto, CA "We evaluated several different options for dental assisting schools. Dental Careers from Dr. Rich Erickson offered the best value. Rich has been very helpful in setting up our school. He provides you with everything you need to get started. I can highly recommend this program." Dr. Mark Ortinau, Ellisville, MO "The course material is thorough and very well organized, Rich has put a tremendous amount of time and thought into the program." Dr. Doug Voiers, Avon, OH "I talked with [one of your prospective buyers and told him my experience with the program. I told him ‘If you do not do this, you will regret it forever.' Thanks for all your encouragement.“ Dr. Bill Calloway, Houston, TX "Thanks for the [recent upgrade], I know it will be useful. Some people would be happy to collect $10K [selling the program] and be done with it but you continue to be very helpful. I for one am grateful." Dr. George Eliades, Westminster, CA "The PowerPoint presentation lecture material blew me away. They are very impressive and professional. The custom made syllabus is better illustrated and organized than any dental assisting text I've seen. Great Job!" Dr. Bryan Cousin, Swampscott, MA "The program has been successful in my practice since 1995 in training hundreds of prospective dental assistants. My staff teaches 80% of the program allowing me to make money in dentistry without being in the office. With the new digital update, teaching the program will be even easier. The Dental Careers Program can be personalized to fit almost any office situation and after the first year it will almost run itself." Dr. Charles Bohle, Paducah, KY "I have 9 students in my first class. Thank you for all you've done in helping this be so successful for me. You have done a great thing and I would be remiss to not say thanks." Dr. Dix Densley, Hillsboro, OR "I can't believe the positive comments from the students, they keep telling me what a great course this is. I have 22 enrolled for a first class, WOW!! This course has changed my life!" Dr. Dino Stavros, Portland, ME "We have gotten nothing but positive comments from the students. You have made getting started and running this program a breeze. The terrific organization of the materials provided makes running the program easy. Giving these courses is an excellent profit center for our office as well as a rewarding experience. Dr. A.V. Strait, Old Greenwich, CT Comments From Our User Dentists:
More Comments From Our User Dentists: "As an update, we began our first class. I started marketing 3 weeks before it began. I ran 3 separate ads including the careerbuilder.com ad that was huge. We had about 14 people who were seriously interested and others who inquired. I wanted at least 5 people for the first class. We had an open house the week before the first class. We had 10 people sign up. We offered the class at $2,995. We provided financing options from [a finance company] or a 5% discount for cash payments in full. I chose not to do any financing because that's not the thing I want to get into. We had about $15,700 in check payments and $13,480 [from the finance company] and maybe one credit card payment was included in that total but I can't remember. We collected just under $29,000 in one week! Exciting stuff! "I plan on offering our next course for $3,995. The same interest free financing options will be made available. That's twelve easy payments of $333. We are also offering a 10% discount for cash payments in full. People love getting a good deal! Things are going great. My goal is to make this business as passive an income stream as I can." Dr. Taylor Clark, Boise, ID "Rich, I hope you can help! We just started our second class today, we have TWENTY STUDENTS...its great...but my staff accidentally ordered the course workbook from Elsivier instead of yours. We need twenty syllabus by next Saturday. Can we make this happen?“ Dr. Westermeier East Aurora, NY "I had 9 students in our January class, all passed [the necessary tests in Oregon to become dental assistants]. I have raised my fee to $6970 for our course. We decided to to a small course in the summer - 3 students only - we are on week 7. We have payment in full for 1 student to start in Sept and registration fees for 4 students and 5-6 that would also like to enroll. We are limiting our course to 4 students per instructor. This allows for the one on one that is critical for success on the above exams" “ Thanks for the great idea and the assistance in helping me succeed. In September I hope to be out of the course all together. This summer I only taught 4 of the classes ( 2hr each) $21,000 - expenses for 8 hrs is definitely not chump change). September will absolutely be cherry if I don't have to go in at all: $56k - expenses. Thanks again !!! ” Portland, OR
Teach Dental Assisting for Fun and PROFIT! <ul><li>A NET INCOME of $150K from this business is the equivalent of adding $500k in PRODUCTION to your practice with only 1/10 the effort. Your staff does most of the work! </li></ul><ul><li>Should you become disabled from practicing, dentistry, you can still operate this business, providing you with a potential DISABILITY INCOME of $150K a year , and the “insurance premiums” cost you nothing. How much would disability insurance premiums cost you for an actual $150K policy? </li></ul>
Dental Assisting can easily be incorporated into your practice to provide you with an additional $150,000 a year using a business model you already know. The overhead from this business is very different from your dental practice, it is only about 15%!
Ask your assistants if they would rather teach using this presentation or would they prefer to sit in front of 30 students, ad-libbing and fumbling like our competitor’s program would have you do! It’s your choice! Our program is light years ahead of any other dental assisting program on the market. Our custom designed teaching program uses state-of-the-art PowerPoint graphics with embedded DVD videos to make teaching for you or your staff a breeze to learn.
Sit back, and just imagine what this new income source could do for you!
Why pay up to $40,000 for other teaching programs and struggle with implementation. Get the best and make your retirement dreams a reality !

These videos segments are formatted to play automatically after the appropriate slide in the presentation. The instructor simply clicks the mouse to go from slide, to video and back to slide. It could not be easier! Let’s look at some of the lecture slides... Unlike dentistry, this business runs without you being there!

Typical P&L Statement Gross Income $150,000 (yearly tuition) Expenses : Books: $4800 Salaries: $10,500 Supplies: $550 Rent: $O* Miscellaneous: $750. Advertising: $4000 TOTAL EXPENSES: $20,600 NET Income: $129,400 86% NET * the Rent is Ø because the practice has already paid it. The gross income at left is a reasonable expectation for an established school. Note that there is no rent to pay as the practice has already paid it. Salaries are figured on assistants teaching ALL of the course and at $200 per diem. Total students enrolled for the year is 60 at a tuition of $2500. The NET for operating this business is an astounding 86% ! Figuring that the average dental practice operates at a 75% overhead, for you to EQUAL this NET, your practice would have to PRODUCE AND COLLECT an additional $527,900 a year. Are you starting to see why this business is such a profit machine?
Comments From Our Past Students: "I really enjoyed all of it, from the teachers to the learning and the hands-on participation. The classes were very interesting and was sorry to see it end." B.T., Stone Mountain "It's been a very interesting 10 weeks of class. At first I felt like there was so much to take in and learn. I've learned a lot and was surprised to find out that I really enjoyed the course. I had a wonderful time." J.G., Marietta "The class was very enjoyable. The instructors were very patient if a student was having problems with a particular section of the course. They even stayed late to give extra help with the hands-on training. It was a great experience for me." G.R. Decatur "I really enjoyed this course and am sorry to see it come to an end. I am really looking forward to my career in Dental Assisting and have learned a lot during this ten week program.

You have all been a great influence and wonderful motivators and I want you to know how much I appreciate your dedication." A. W., Riverdale "The Dental Assisting Program has been a wonderful class for me because it has given me a different insight into a field that I have wanted to pursue for years.

I have enjoyed each day of class. Thanks again." C. T. Atlanta "Thanks for opening doors for people like myself who have dreamed about becoming a dental assistant. The classes were great and I feel that you all do a great job in teaching all the necessary essentials of dental assisting. Keep up the good work." C.F. Marietta
