Dr. Joe Dove joined MB2 February this year! His practice Dove Family Dentistry in Memphis, TN was doing well after years of developing their presence in the Memphis market. Dr. Dove was ready to grow his presence in Memphis and knew that with a little help he could break through to the next level of practice growth. That’s when he was introduced to MB2 through a new patient.
Since joining as an affiliated owner with MB2, Dr. Dove has built and opened his second Memphis, TN practice!
Dr. Dove has been practicing dentistry for over 14 years. In addition to practicing chair side at his two Memphis dental practices, Dr. Dove enjoys mentoring young dentists in the clinical and non-clinical aspects of dentistry.
What was your first experience out of Dental School? Why did you leave?
My first experience out of dental school was in a small private practice. During that first few years there was a lot of learning! It was very difficult, but I think set me up to handle the patient flow my practices experience today.
I eventually left because I needed more opportunity to grow in my dental career!
What advice would you give dental students about their career?
Don’t take the opportunities in your career for granted. Learn from each experience and do your homework before entering into an agreement with a practice.
What advice would you give doctor owners outside of MB2 affiliated brands?
Don’t get locked into one vision. Look around and see what the dental industry has to offer!
