The Dentist's Retirement Number in 9 Minutes

Dr. Doug Carlsen retired at age 53 from a 25 year restorative practice. He never produced $1,000,000, yet was able to be financially free at an early age.


How is Dr. Carlsen different?

The workshops, writing, and videos are based on extensive interviews of early retirees and doctors who still choose to work with wealth, not including their homes, of between $3M and $10M.

Carlsen has no financial connection with any individual or company.

When you call or email, you always get Dr. Carlsen, not an employee.

No financial products are promoted nor does Carlsen invest doctors’ money.

Therefore, Carlsen does not use scare tactics or promote urgent messages.



Writing and Videos:

Over 40 articles in Dental Economics and Dentaltown Magazine are available.

All writing is based on academic financial research and interviews of dentists who have generated real wealth, not just high income.
