Leadership and Communication in Dentistry: A Practical Guide to your Practice, your Patients and your Self / by J.P. Graskemper 
John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"This book is the result of many recent dental school graduates seeking advice regarding the direction their careers and their lives were heading. Some lost the balance required to maintain a healthy practice and a healthy home life. Some would mention after our sessions on leadership that they never heard of such material and wished they had more information. To maintain your life is not only to be living successfully but also to be successful at living. In dentistry, we need to take the lead in our involvement in dental insurance, or in our practices as it relates to our patients and our staffs, and the lead on how we manage ourselves to maintain that leadership and maintain our life. Being mindful of proper communication and leadership skills create a true balance for the successful dentist leader. Therefore, this book has been divided into three sections: Dental Insurance Companies, Your Practice, which includes patients and staff, and Your Self." From preface
