Ankur Gupta, DDS


Dr. Gupta after completing a one-year GPR in Cleveland, started a practice from scratch in 2005. Armed with what he considered adequate knowledge, hand skills, and a personable demeanor, he watched as his practice floundered, finances became un-predictable, and his lower back and spirit toward life became worrisome. Rather than continue the trend, he made a guinea pig out of his office, family, and self; attempting any and all personal and professional “experiments” in self-improvement. More than a decade later, he enjoys excellent new patient numbers and case acceptance, a solution oriented dental team; and most importantly, a meaningful and positive identity. He happily shares the failures and successes with dental and community groups throughout the country, always ending his presentations with practical, implementable, step-by-step ways to be better.

One Year to a Happier, More Productive Team

Our professional happiness doesn’t come from the depth of our clinical knowledge or the profitability of the practice; rather, it comes from the collective happiness of the team that we surround ourselves with on a daily basis. One crabby individual can ruin an otherwise great day, just as an inspiring and upbeat group can provide energy and positivity no matter how the rest of the day goes. In this highly entertaining presentation, Dr. Gupta describes the steps, when properly implemented, that will keep your team energized, accountable, valuable, and a joy to be around.


  • Create internally designed systems of team accountability with your team.
  • Formulate an incentive-based vision for your practice.
  • Design a fully implementable daily routine that will result in a greater level of happiness, teamwork, and positive energy amongst yourself and your team.

Techniques and products that have made dentistry easier, predictable, and profitable

Even after being a dentist for nearly two decades, certain procedures are just difficult. Prepping margins on the distal of 2 with chubby cheeks and too much saliva used to break my back, hurt my wrists, and make me ashamed of myself when I looked at the x-ray a year later. There are so many products and techniques that allege better, more predictable dentistry. In this one hour lecture, Dr. Gupta shares real-life experience with his favorites.


  • Gain knowledge about products and techniques that minimize back and hand pain.
  • Learn about products and techniques that result in healthier gingiva, clearer margins, and overall more predictable restorative and surgical dentistry.
  • Discover procedures that you may not already be providing that benefit patients, make dentistry easier, and increase practice profitability.
