Being uncomfortable is better than you think…

Published 11 months ago • 3 min read

Hey Friends,

I have been at the Dental Nachos - Super Dentist Practice Owner Boost Camp the past few days and it has been pretty monumental.

First of all - this is the first event I have ever sponsored. Clear Aligner Advisor (my Clear Aligner Coaching business) is an official sponsor.

This made sense to me but not everyone.

I had a friend text me this week when he found out and told me that me being a sponsor was wild.

I asked him why?

He said “you are an associate - 5 years out of school - you created an online aligner training program - and you are sponsoring an event for practice owners… that’s CRAZY!”

Once he told me that I actually took a second and was like “well when you put it like that - that sounds pretty nuts lol”

BUT I didn’t see i that way.

From a business perspective - this made sense.

I have a program that open minded dentists who are looking to level up can benefit from.

It is MY JOB to spread the awareness about my program - Aligner Launchpad.

So why wouldn’t I be at this event as a sponsor?

You see - I am so focused on my program being the first program that general dentists think of when they want a comprehensive program that teaches them how to start and dominate aligners in their practice - that I don’t let any “barriers” stop me from reaching that goal.

Am I uncomfortable sometimes when I have to meet new people? Of course

Did I used to think that I maybe wasn’t qualified to teach colleagues how to do aligners? Sure

Did I realize that my program has the ability to help dentists all over the world change the trajectory of their career/life? Yup.

Will I stop trying to serve + help general dentists tap into the next level that they are all capable of…. Not a chance!

So I want you to know that when you are trying something new or on a growth journey… know that you WILL be uncomfortable.

But when you commit to achieving something you will surprise the hell out of yourself once you get rolling.

And once you’re rolling… don’t stop!

Straight Talk

Actionable Technical Tip for Dentists Promoting Clear Aligners:

Collect testimonial videos and before/after photos from satisfied patients.

Use these visuals on your website and social media to showcase real results and build trust with potential patients.

This approach enhances credibility and attracts new patients to your clear aligner services.


You can use your iPhone - whip it out when a patient starts treatment and document how excited they are to start.

Do the same when they are done

You can even document it when they come in for check ups.

Ask them “How has treatment been? What did you think would be a big deal but really isn’t? What are some benefits you’re experiencing? What are some of the challenges?”

Literally put your phone on selfie mode and just keep it conversational - these go a LONG WAY.

Hey Friends, On Thursday Neha and I were officially THOSE people. We were the people with a crying baby on the plane... twice. We took Naira on her first plane ride and had a connecting flight in Atlanta. There was a delay, there were tears (Naira's lol), but we made it safely. To the parents reading this you know EXACTLY what this feeling feels like. To the people without kids... bless your soul. It's funny because before we had Naira I used to get annoyed when babies would cry on the plane....

Hey Friends, It is memorial day weekend here and my family flew in to visit! That's my brother Rajan with my daughter Naira! It is the first time they are meeting and they've been having a blast with each other. So as you can see my brother is pretty young - but don't let that fool you. He got a job with align earlier this year and is in their sales associate program. He is on track to be a future territory manager. He was 1 of 100 applicants for a 10 person program and he got the job. In...

Hey Friends, You know how they say you won't know about something unless you try it? I experienced that moment last month when I decided to make a major shift in the business. So traditionally the only way I was reaching dentists was online. I was making youtube videos and instagram reels and writing this newsletter to try and provide free education around aligners. This is something nobody else is doing and at the time I wanted to be the one to do it because I wish something like this...
