From the time he was a child, Dr. Brian Boston found himself drawn to the sciences. He also enjoyed helping those in need – a combination that would prepare him well for a career in dentistry. His father, an experienced dentist with his own practice, provided Dr. Boston with the inspiration to realize his calling. Dr. Boston recalls the admiration he had for the enthusiasm his father showed at work and the strong relationships his father formed with patients, both inside and outside the office.
After graduating from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry in 2011, Brian worked alongside his father at their family dental practice in northern Utah for 5 months. Although he valued this experience and credits his father for helping jumpstart his dental career, Dr. Boston sought a different kind of work environment.
“My father’s practice didn’t quite offer the level of activity I was looking for in a dental office. I heard about Aspen Dental and knew that their practice model ensured each office would have the patient flow I desired.” Patient flow was important to Dr. Boston. Not only would it allow him to develop clinically, but it would also give him the opportunity to help many patients each day.
As Owner of the Aspen Dental office in Racine, Wisconsin, Dr. Boston enjoys the autonomy of his position, but also appreciates the office team that supports him on a daily basis. He credits Aspen and his team for allowing him to do the very thing he went to school for – practicing dentistry – without worrying about the finances and other administrative tasks involved in running a practice.
Dr. Boston emphasizes that Aspen is a great opportunity for dentists of all ages and experiences, because you own a practice, run a practice, or be an associate. At the end of the day, what means the most to Dr. Boston is how “rewarding it is to help people who come in with a concern – whether it is for pain, something aesthetic, or for simply getting back their smile.”
