WHAT IS T-BONE SPEAKS?


T-Bone Speaks is a resource run by me, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, to help dentists like you achieve your dream practice by going from having a dental practice to having a dental business.


You may be asking what's the difference between a dental practice and a dental business?  It's unique to each person and isn't exactly what you think it is.  But one thing I can say for sure - it's the key to unlocking your true potential.


When you make the transition, you start to earn more money, take more time off, and do more of the dentistry that makes you happy.  All this can happen without losing the personality, culture, and beliefs that makes your practice unique.

WHO IS DR. TARUN AGARWAL?

What makes him different from other so called 'Dental Experts'


I'm just a regular guy in my early forties who has learned from the school of hard knocks about building a successful dental business.  It hasn't happened without significant challenges along the way and it certainly isn't without ups and downs today.


It's these real life experiences, along with my willingness to openly share the good and bad, that positions me to help you move forward regardless of where you are in your dental journey.


It's rare that anyone achieves any level of success without going on a journey.  Let me share with you where I came from, how I got started, and some of the challenges I've faced along the way.

WHY I DO WHAT I DO?


HINT:  IT'S NOT ABOUT MONEY OR FAME (although they are both nice)


My family & life experiences are the primary motivation behind everything I do.


You see, I wouldn't be writing this today if it wasn't for someone motivating my father to immigrate to the United States in 1977.  I likely wouldn't have the drive to be an entrepreneur if it wasn't for someone encouraging my father to be his own boss and purchase his first motel in 1980.  I likely wouldn't have the appreciation for constant education if someone didn't inspire my mother to go back to school at age 40 to help give our family a better life.


For my father that person was his oldest brother.  For my mother that person was her father.


I hope by openly sharing my experiences that I can motivate, encourage, and inspire you to see a different path, achieve your goals, and continue to dream big.

PERSONAL BALANCE

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING


Thank you for two great lectures. You are very inspiring. I am getting the new SL cone beam unit and will start placing implants again using guided surgery.

You really inspired me! Thanks again.

Great Not Only in Dentistry But Also in Life

If you remember, you sat with me for over two hours and discussed my future in dentistry. Well, I wanted to thank you for taking your time to talk. That made a huge impact on my life, as I reevaluated my goals and what I want out of this career.

You also mentioned that 'you are an average of the 5 people you hang out with'. I have found mentors who will accelerate my career and now surround myself with such people. Since I met you that day, the changes I have made helped me in becoming more confident as a clinician and I enjoy dentistry more each day.

Thanks again for your guidance, you helped me realize what it takes to be great not only in dentistry but also in life!

While melding his knowledge and expertise in the many aspects of dentistry, Dr. T-bone’s courses have the uncanny ability to not only teach but also challenge and inspire you to grow and develop both professionally and personally. Highly recommended to fellow dentists and team members alike!

I attended your lecture "Implants in the CEREC Practice" at the CEREC 30 seminar in Las Vegas.

I was especially moved by your closing keynote in the Venetian ballroom on Saturday. I actually found you more inspiring than Tony Robbins and Emmitt Smith!

Such a great learning experience

You do an awesome job and I can't tell you enough how thankful I am that I signed up for the course. You made it such a great learning environment and our team can tell much you care that we learn and understand, but also enjoy ourselves.

The Final Piece We Needed

Tarun, thanks for an inspiring weekend of learning. Will definitely being identifying our 'champion' and working out protocols. We have already started creating awareness. Your course was the final piece needed.

Great teacher! Connects with everyone! Motivates everyone!
