For a cosmetic dentist, Beverly Hills is the top of the world. But it’s not an easy life there. You have to maintain the most state-of-the-art technology as well as your reputation as a world-class dentist. On a daily basis, you must act as a five-star hotel maîtres d’, image consultant, and travel agent for your patients. And occasionally, even on your best work, you will have patients go berserk about something you did (whether you really did or not) and you’ll have to move mountains to make them happy.
Beverly Hills cosmetic
It’s no wonder the average Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist career is so short. It’s a draining lifestyle. Fortunately, they make enough during their careers to retire comfortably at an early age. And in the meantime, they’re hobnobbing with celebrities and enjoying occasional lavish leisure time.
Demands of the job
If this kind of life appeals to you, good luck. It’s almost as difficult to become a movie star as it is to become a cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills. Your best bet is to set up a residency in town. (It helps if you already know someone.) That way you can get to know the demands of the job that have absolutely nothing to do with dentistry. And maybe you can get in on the practice full time. You might even be able to take it over when your mentor retires at a young age.
But know you won’t inherit a star-studded clientele just by working with a highly sought-after Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist. Your name is everything in this town, so you will have to establish yourself as a world-class dentist in your own right. This will involve a lot of PR work and luck. And you better actually be a world-class dentist when you get here or no amount of PR will make up for it. This is one area where being the boss’s son doesn’t cut it.
You’ll also need a great staff who know the demands of your highly entitled Beverly Hills patients. Many offices have in-house aromatherapists, concierges, and travel planners.
So if you think you can handle the rigor of getting into a Beverly Hills dentistry practice, learning to juggle many other responsibilities, and dealing with celebrities on a daily basis, you might be able to make it in Beverly Hills.
