Are you prepared to move on to the next chapter of your life when you retire? Surprisingly, many people are not. Preparing both financially and mentally will help make the transition to retirement smooth.
In an article from Dentistry iQ author Karen Coyne writes, “Doctors, especially, can feel a lack of focus and purpose upon leaving their life’s work. So much of their satisfaction and identity is tied to work that they may struggle to learn how to fill the void”.
In the article Coyne discusses:
- Slowly transition out
- Find a buyer and plan ahead
- Have a purpose beyond your career
- Ask for help
Coyne continues, “Dentists who’ve experienced the stressful retirement transition say that it pays to be prepared emotionally as well as financially, and to begin preparations years before hanging up that cheek retractor for good”. If you are thinking about planning for retirement from your dental practice, read this article!
