Putting Your Money in (Chicken) Stock
In this survey, the majority of dentists said that their portfolio these days is more chicken bouillon and less gold bullion. Dental practices and stock portfolios are both hurting. “Production is off 50%,” said one dentist. “I am very concerned…very concerned!!”
Another doctor begged to differ. “My personal finance portfolio has taken a hit, but my practice is still growing 17%,” said a Texas dentist.
Here are some other (pessimistic) comments from dentists:
- “I am just now seeing a slow down in case acceptance, but everyone is talking about the slow economy.” (Tennessee dentist)
- “It’s slowed down. People aren’t wanting to spend.” (California dentist)
- “Productivity is the lowest in 15 years of practice.” (Alaska dentist)
- “The worst ever.” (Florida dentist)
