Perspectives on working with dentists

Formerly a real estate broker, Brian was inspired to become a financial planner by his own financial advisor. He gained extensive experience providing financial advice to physicians and their families as a financial planning advisor at a national firm. Brian found the size and culture of CDSPI to be the perfect setting to serve the dental community.

Brian enjoys collaborating with dentists to create their financial strategies. He supports his clients with a financial plan. He builds trust and is adept at managing the relationships he has built with his clients whether the market is stable, in an upturn, or a downturn. Brian encourages his clients to use investment and insurance vehicles to develop their retirement nest egg and achieve their goals. He appreciates and enjoys the complexity of dentists’ financial strategies which often involve cross-collaboration with a dentists’ team of advisors including lawyers, and accountants who all strive to help dentists meet their objectives and financial goals.

Brian believes financial wellness is integrated with the physical, mental, and financial aspects of our lives. He encourages dentists to work with their advisor to create a solid financial plan that will give them peace of mind and the freedom to live life fully. Brian would like every dentist to know that “It’s time in the market, not market timing.” His advice is to play the long game by waiting out market downturns in favour of future benefits.
