Perspectives on working with dentists

Michael enjoys helping dentists with their long and short-term goals to create a financial plan. He understands how important it is for clients to understand and feel safe with a plan in place. A plan that addresses times of stress, like when thinking about retirement, buying, or selling a practice. That is where a financial planner comes in to guide and reinforce trust in the plan created together.

Michael is a puzzle-solver by nature, and he enjoys working with dentists on their financial goals and dreams creating a financial plan that all fits together. “Mind you, not everyone’s puzzle comes together the same way, which gives the problem-solver in me the opportunity to figure out the best way to put the pieces together so that my clients reach their goals.”

“It’s essential to sit down and draw up a plan; figure out where you want to go with the understanding of the options and finding the best path for you.”

Financial wellness all comes down to the financial plan. A solid financial plan carves a clear path towards your goals. It is like having a roadmap that is updated and maintained with regular check-ups to keep you on the best route to get where you need to go.

A former jazz musician, Michael is a proud father of a daughter who is a talented musician and an inspiration to him in the pursuit of her dreams. He is also a movie buff, “whether it’s superhero, drama, or foreign, you name it, and I’ve probably seen it, it’s on my list, or I’ll add it right away!” Michael loves to cook and has been improving his culinary skills for the past 10 years. He likes playing poker for the puzzle aspect of it and keeps busy with his dog, Freddie, a miniature Australian Shepperd who had lived in four homes before serendipity brought them together.
