Leslie Griesdorf: What is the Key to a Successful Practice?

Leslie Griesdorf devoted his life to compassionate, caring dentistry for more than 30 years. The Owner and Founder of his own Toronto-based dental surgery office until 2004, Leslie Griesdorf set himself apart as a patient-oriented practitioner; someone who’s first and foremost goal was always to put the patient’s dental health, and the patient experience, above all else.

As someone who practiced dentistry for more than three decades, and did so through his own dental office, Leslie Griesdorf understands what it takes to sustain a successful operation, particularly in what continues to be such a competitive market. The main components of a successful, sustainable dentistry include:

Focusing on What Makes Your Practice Unique

Whether your focus is family dentistry, or your practice is strictly centered on dentures and dental prosthetics, it’s important to identify those services or aspects that make your practice unique. Doing so early on in your practice, and working continuously to emphasize those qualities that make you stand out, is key to remaining competitive.

Discovering and Building on Your Office Culture

Taking the time to understand your practice’s personality, your expectations, your values and your protocols for patient care help to give and strengthen your office identity. Making sure everyone is on the same page, and working toward the same patient-centered goals, is crucial to creating a place patients want to visit.

Tips like these can help you follow Dr. Leslie Griesdorf’s lead and find a similar work/life balance in your busy schedule:

  • Take a Few Irons Out of the Fire

If you’re always busy and don’t have much of a work/life balance, it’s time to step back and look at where your time goes. Unless all of your spare time goes to social media – in which case, it’s an easy fix to stop logging in more than once a day – you’ll likely need to take a few irons out of the fire.

For example, if you’re taking yoga classes, karate classes and spinning classes while trying to manage a business, pick one fitness focus and set the others aside.

  • Focus on the Present

A perfect work/life balance doesn’t do much if you’re constantly thinking about work when you’re with family and vice versa. Learn to focus on the present and set aside thoughts about anything that happened earlier in the day or anything you have to do later.

As an extension of being present, avoid talking to friends or family when you should be working and don’t worry about work tasks when you’re relaxing.

Though Dr. Leslie Griesdorf enjoys a positive work/life balance, he still makes adjustments as life changes. You’ll have to do the same, rebalancing as things enter and leave the equation.

Leslie Griesdorf: First Steps for Investing

Leslie Griesdorf is a semi-retired investor who left his decades-long dentistry career in 2004. Leslie Griesdorf enjoys learning about the stock market and often provides advice to friends and family who ask him for his investment opinions.


Like many successful investors, Leslie Griesdorf didn’t start his stock market career directly out of college. Instead, he built his dentistry practice, saved, put money into retirement and then began investing in stocks. If you’ve similarly prepared, with a stable career, a substantial emergency fund and a secure retirement plan, you’re ready to take your first investing steps.

Below are some ways that a seasoned investor might suggest you begin your investment career:

  • Find a Professional

Even professional investors seek advisement. Find a financial professional that you trust and establish a working relationship. You don’t have to do everything your investment advisor recommends, but you should ask for his or her detailed opinions of your financial choices before you make them, and consider the information you are given.  

  • Diversify from Day One

A diverse portfolio is secure. As soon as you begin investing your wealth, you should have a diversification plan and follow it carefully. With assets divided before multiple sources, you will protect your wealth and potentially grow it more. Regular diversification check-ins are necessary, too.

Take a page from Leslie Griesdorf and use caution with your investments. Never rush in to anything and research every choice before acting, regardless of how strong your gut feeling is.
