After graduating from dental school at the University of Michigan in 1998, Drew associated, partnered, and owned a variety of practice styles and locations during his career. During that time, he was a member of the Ontario Dental Association Economic Committee, as well as an ODA Councillor, and has a keen understanding of the economic challenges that dental practice owners face today.
When he had an ROI appraisal completed, that valuable information allowed for a change in his original plans to perhaps practice for another 20+ years. Instead, Drew sold both of his practices through ROI, moved to the UK for two years and travelled the world, all while protecting his personal net worth. Drew’s primary goal is to help his peers to achieve the freedom they deserve when ready and he is happy to chat at any time about his experience with ROI, and the dental industry at large.
