Welcome to The Successful Dentist. The purpose of this publication is to give insight
into what is takes to be a successful dentist. My name is Gabe Sullivan, and I am a dentist in
Union City, Tennessee. I graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in
2006. Over these past years, I have learned a lot about what it takes to be a successful dentist;
I want to share these tools with you.
The staff of twenty-four includes three dentists and five hygienists. Our assistants have
expanded duties, prosthetics, and restorative functions. Sullivan Dentistry’s success is not
solely contributed to how many root canals we perform or teeth we extract. In my practice, we
have grown to averaging 175 new patients per month, in a town of only 10,000 people. A big
portion of the practice is the patient experience. The patients at Sullivan Dentistry are more
than just a number. We know them by name and treat them like family.
The articles following this publication will include various insights on the dental
profession. I am eager to teach others what I have learned. I appreciate everyone taking the
time to read, and I hope you continue on this journey with us.
