Establishing your dental clinic requires your full commitment, business acumen, financial stability, and industry awareness.
These are the things you need to keep in mind before you set up your dental clinic:
Set Your Objectives, Do Homework
Before everything else, ensure that you have the right objectives and get them straight. Do set your goals in terms of money, knowledge, freedom of time, etc. Do remember that you need to spend a lot of money as you will be opening a clinic.
Once you have your goal, start talking to other dental clinic owners and know their stories. Though such clinics’ success rate is high, it never harms to have some extra knowledge.
Dentists who are already running their clinic know what is right and what is not. So, they can guide you properly. Are you sure you can face these challenges? Yes! Then you are good to go!
Finding a Good Location
After planning your business’s size, you need to decide where you want to locate your clinic. Do make sure it is in a good area, where there are a lot of people around and a busy road.
A good location will give you the visibility you require. The right location will help you attract many people, which is extremely beneficial for you.
Solo or Partnering – What You Want?
You first need to have a firm mind to track and think if you can handle this business alone. If you are passionate about it and ready to go ahead alone, then you can.
However, you can think about partnering with someone. This is a purely subjective decision. Setting up a dental clinic with a partner will lessen your financial burden in the business’s initial stages.
Have You Found Out the Associated Costs?
Although it is a clinic, it is a business. You need to keep in mind all the costs that are involved in this particular set up.
- Furnishing and infrastructure
- Staff required
- Monthly rent of the entire place
- Water and electricity costs
These are some of the expenses that come along with starting your clinic. Running your dental clinic requires substantial capital.
It is better if you have that funding. If not, do not worry, as you can opt for dental financing. Many money lenders will provide you with the loan amount.
Taking Care of Proper Maintenance
It is extremely important to have a hygienic place. When people start to check reviews, the first and foremost fact they will look at is the clinic is hygienic. This business involves a lot to do with the mouth area.
Thus, a lot of water, washbasins, required equipment for necessary treatments and surgeries are things to keep in mind. Strategize your time when you are setting up your clinic.
Ensure that the first thing you do is look into how clean you can keep the place. Everything else is secondary.
If the place needs some renovation works and you don’t have the required money, opting for home renovation financing is an excellent idea.
A Thorough Marketing Strategy Is a Key to Success
Last but not least, devising a thorough plan can help your business reach the sky in no time.
First of all, hire a contractor who is a pro in the dental business. In other words, opt for a person who has built many dental clinics, even if they cost higher.
They know their job very well. So, you don’t have to run behind them for every single thing. And maintain a good relationship with them so that if any problem arises, you get them immediately.
Next, take each and every piece of equipment from a specialist dealer only as they can provide you with all the modern things that are in use these days.
After that, you need an extremely good PR team to be able to get your business going. Firstly, keep yourself updated on every social media platform.
The reviews that you get on the internet will give you a lot more visibility and help your business grow. People will start noticing you, and the clinic will slowly tend to gain fame.
Also, with all this comes hiring the right staff. You cannot work out everything on your own. The best way to be able to work efficiently is to hire the right staff.
Do keep in mind that you need the right receptionist, and you need the right people to help you. One of the most important things is to register your clinic.
Ensure that your clinic is registered under the government and all your equipment and medicines are clinically tested and approved. Do not try to go the short way; it will not work out.

Keep in mind that you are dealing with people’s teeth, a very important part of their body. If something goes wrong, it will lead to a lot of complications and infections that will, in turn, cause danger to you.
Becoming a dentist or a doctor is truly a blessing. You can save people’s lives, and you can also be proud of it. It is a true opportunity to help the ones in need and support society in every way you can.
It is a great idea to start your dental clinic, provided you keep the things mentioned above in mind before you think of moving ahead and starting one.

What Is Bullying?
Bullying is a pattern of recurrent aggressive behavior in which one person (or a group of individuals) in a position of authority intentionally intimidate or abuse another individual to cause bodily or emotional harm to that other. Bullying may take place in either a physical or verbal manner. Bullied individuals, as well as those who bully others, may have long-term repercussions.
Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social. Bullies utilize their position of power — such as physical strength, knowledge of something embarrassing, or popularity — to exert control over or damage other people. Many people assume that bullying occurs solely during childhood; nevertheless, bullying does not necessarily stop after a person reaches the age of adulthood.
Bullies in adulthood can take the form of a threatening boss or colleague, a controlling partner, a relative, or any other type of person. Even in our personal and professional lives, we sometimes encounter adult bullies who can be harmful to our mental well-being.

How To Deal With An Adult Bully?
For obvious reasons, adult bullying can be a painful and challenging experience for anybody who finds themselves on the receiving end of such behavior. Knowing how to deal with the antics of a bully properly, on the other hand, may help you learn, develop, and feel better levels of confidence. When you find yourself in this scenario, one of the most crucial things to remember is that you must not exhibit the bully any signs of fear. This might be difficult, depending on the sort of bully you are dealing with, but bullies enjoy fear, encouraging them to continue with their terrible conduct.
Maintaining a sense of connection with other people while dealing with bullying is quite essential. Bullies usually see alone persons as easier targets since they have a smaller support network to challenge them.
Courage and a support network are significant advantages; but, reporting the bully is also an excellent line of action. Contrary to common opinion, just ignoring a bully does not always prompt them to cease their behavior. Adult bullies of all kinds often interpret being ignored as a sign of weakness, encouraging them to continue bullying. If someone is bullying you, don't be scared to speak out and report the individual.

Silver and gold have always been preferred when it comes to wearing jewellery. Right from the times of monarchy in India, wealth and riches have been associated with wearing gold and silver for the various properties they have. Copper is a metal that has always been worn by the poor. It is not a metal that carries a significant association with health or wealth, but wearing at least one article of copper is extremely beneficial for health.
Copper is a reddish-brown metal that cannot be worn on its own. It has to be worn in the form of an alloy to prevent a reaction. Copper oxidizes in air and forms a green layer on it when exposed, much like the Statue of Liberty. Usually, bangles, chains, or rings of copper always have brass and traces of silver in them which helps with stabilizing its reactivity.
Wearing copper with stones in it looks very aesthetic, but copper is not durable enough to hold the stones, which is why it is fashioned into elaborate designs and sold. Copper is very malleable, and over time, the bangle or ring will take the shape of the wearer's hand or finger.

Jewellery made out of copper can be an excellent health indicator. Copper helps metabolize bodily functions faster, and the wearer experiences relief from indigestion. It also soothes joint pain, headaches, and arthritis. Using copper utensils also aids those with deficiencies. Since copper is absorbed slowly into the body, there is no fear of causing any kind of imbalance.
Sometimes copper leaves a greenish tinge on the skin. This happens when it oxidizes with sweat. This stain can be washed away with soap and water, but the fact that it appears is noteworthy. It is an indicator of too much acidity in the body. Greenish skin appears when the wearer's diet includes too much meat or acidic foods.
Copper might not be a very attractive metal, but wearing it has a lot of benefits for the health. It regulates metabolism, assimilation, and indicates health. It is definitely a good idea to wear copper jewellery at least once in a while.

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.
The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.
Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.
According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.

"On the other hand, there is a niche market for those new market entrants that are able to differentiate themselves from the competition in terms of features and value. "Alongside, they would need to back it with strong brand messaging to create awareness and recall amongst the target consumers," Ram added.
HP maintained its lead in the India PC market with a 33.6 per cent share as its shipments grew 54.2 per cent annually. Dell Technologies continued to hold the second position with a 22.1 per cent share and an impressive 86.1 per cent YoY growth in 2Q21. Lenovo maintained the third position with a share of 17.8 per cent in 2Q21.
Arvind Suraj, Research Fellow, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), said that there is always a trust issue with new brands. "You won't buy a laptop in 6 or 7 months just like smartphones. In this case, we often go for existing players. Brands like Lenovo, HP, ASUS and Acer have already gained our trust," he said. (IANS/ MBI)
