MassMutual Study on Business Owners Gives Insights on Latinos’ Business Attitudes and Concerns


Dental professionals in private practice share many of the values and attitudes towards business planning as other closely-held business owners. That’s why this month, we’d like to share with HDA members an article about a study on Latino business owners conducted by MassMutual to spark a meaningful dialogue about how to best position your dental practice for long-term success and stability and stress the need to consider the impact not planning could have on your dental practice and on those who matter most.

Read more about the study as well as key business planning concerns that were most top of mind by respondents in the 2015 MassMutual Business Owner Perspectives study:

  • Succession Planning
  • Attracting & Retaining key employees
  • Knowing what the business is worth
  • Retirement planning
  • Protecting the business from the unexpected
