Dr. Bill Williams: My journey from Dunkin Donuts to $5.8 million dollars in annual production
"I started Solstice Dental Advisors in 2010 while I was beginning to contemplate my future in dentistry. I wasn’t ready to retire but after almost four decades in practice I recognized the years were beginning to wind down. Not wanting to take everything I learned to the mental storage locker I began to write down everything I did that contributed to my success. I taught courses internationally in my 30s and I decided to revive my career as a teacher, helping other dentists become million dollar producers.
I started from the day my dad and I decided I’d be a dentist at a Dunkin Donuts over coffee to today where I am million dollar producer. I’m proud to say I’m now an associate after selling Suwanee Dental Care for more than seven figures.
All of this leads to the launch of the 5M Mastermind where my team and I teach dentists how to become $10,000 a day producers, ultimately finishing their career well.
One night in 2008 not long after the economy crashed I was studying (I’m a life-long learner). I had an epiphany. I was thinking about the thousands of business experts offering their services to dentists like you and I yet few had ever been in the trenches doing the work of dentistry. Many of their ideas made little sense to me. I knew then I had to take my career experience and provide real, honest training to those who wanted to do the work.
Let’s be real here, I hear these three comments above all else:
- I want more patients with less stress.
- I want a plan to get there.
- I don't want to be stuck here forever.
For over a decade now I've used what I know works and continue to work in a practice that does $5 million in production year over year. The ability to continue to have the practice I wanted influenced all aspects of my life. I practice the days I want. I travel where I want. I paid for my kids college education and I’m living a life I BELIEVED was possible.
I’ve also written an Amazon bestseller in the field of dentistry. I’ve been featured in newspapers and magazines for our international mission and local service projects. I’ve employed a team of 20 plus staff members for over a decade. Now, I’m giving back to the dental community by helping other dentists become million dollar producers."
