What is the ambitious dentist?

The Ambitious Dentist was created to be a resource for motivated dental students, ambitious associates and proud practice owners. Our mission is to educate, prepare and guide dentist on a purposeful, intentional and productive future. Our vision is to change of our clients lives by educating them on the tools and skillsets necessary to change the course of their lives.

As a 7+ year dental practice owner, Dr. Simone Ellis has experienced many triumphs and pitfalls. Throughout her journey, she was able to identify the gaps which exist in the industry from graduation to practice ownership. Utilizing those lessons learned along the way, she runs her successful practice – it doesn’t run her!
