Customer and client satisfaction is important in any industry, but it is especially important in the medical world.

Whether it was a regular dental check-up, or an extensive oral surgery, he made sure his patients felt taken care of. In this day and age where modern technology runs much of our daily lives, one bad experience a patient has can easily be posted on any of the numerous review websites people use to find medical professionals. One bad review can ruin a doctor’s reputation, which means that they need to offer their clients the best service they possibly can.

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf - The Importance of Diversification in the Stock Market

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf is an expert when it comes to investing in the stock market. Leslie Griesdorf has been making successful investments in the market since he retired from the field of dentistry in 2004. He operated his own private practice in Toronto, Canada where he helped his patients through oral surgery and other dentistry needs. However, he enjoys the free time that investing in the stock market allows him as he is able to spend more quality time with his friends and loved ones. His experience in investing makes him the go-to expert amongst his family and friends, and he always tells them to diversify. 

When someone first starts investing in the stock market, they often make mistakes that can’t be foreseen without the necessary experience in the field. One major thing beginners often overlook when beginning their portfolios is to diversify. People tend to invest in one field, which makes sense if you have useful knowledge in said field, but it won’t make you as much money as investing in a wide range of corporations. Research plays a major role in the investment world; research allows you to invest in any field even if you don’t have experience in those fields specifically. Dr. Leslie Griesdorf always tries to invest in companies that offer services in a number of fields so that he can maximize is return potential. He also tells his family and friends to always invest on your own. Hiring a professional company or individual will cost you money and ultimately dwindle your returns.

A decade or so ago, stockbrokers were the only avenue for trading in stocks. These knowledgeable men and women would be responsible for taking orders, scanning the market, and handling the buying and selling process. Thanks to the Internet though, interested individuals no longer have to rely on stockbrokers as online platforms have made it easier. As Toronto native Dr. Leslie Griesdorf can attest, there are numerous benefits of using online means,

Dr Leslie Griesdorf

The obvious benefit to trading stocks online is that you have full control of the process. This was one of the disadvantages when stockbrokers had control on the process. Often, they had the power to refuse a trade if the broker thought it was not going to benefit the client. While this saved the client from investing poorly, it also meant they couldn’t take risks that sometimes led to lucrative returns. With an online platform, you get to make all the decisions.

Because stockbrokers relied on their knowledge and years of business school education to help their clients, they charged large commissions on the trades they facilitated. These commissions ate into the clients’ returns. With the dawn of the Internet, many stock brokerage firms compete for clients by offering attractive benefits, including low commissions and appealing technology.

Most importantly, when it comes to online stock trading, you don’t need years of experience to try your hand at it. You just need to be willing to put in the research and time to learn the basics and you are ready to start trading.

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf is a retired dentist who spends most of his time trading in stocks. He lives in Ontario with his family.

For many dental students about to graduate, the dream of setting up private practices is about to become a reality. They’ve worked hard and spent many (many) nights preparing to enter the dentistry profession, which is both challenging and gratifying. For retired dentist Dr. Leslie Griesdorf, the expectations of success were all too real at his graduation. With 30 years of experience under his belt, he shares useful information young dentists would be wise to keep in mind.

Dr Leslie Griesdorf

People like their teeth

It’s obvious, right? In the first years of dental school, fixing teeth seemed straightforward, almost mechanical. Just remember your education: Drill here, bond there, and cut that and you’re done. What seems mechanical in school isn’t always so in the real world. That patient likes their teeth, and they have fears and emotions over what you want to do.

The patient’s expectations and demands can affect your ability to concentrate and deliver good results.

Keep it simple

Sales representatives and dental equipment suppliers will probably tell you the benefits of getting the latest equipment. The interior designer will all too happily recommend the appealing furniture and carpets. They will all insist that having an appealing office is the way to go.

But it’s not always so. Your practice does not have to look like a 5-star hotel to bring in patients. You don’t want it to look drab, but going all out doesn’t always translate to more patients.

An effective team is essential

Patients want a dentist that is great at their job and will handle their issue well. While they may spend 30 minutes with you as you clean teeth, they might spend more time with your team – the assistant, receptionist, or hygienist. Suzie the assistant will probably socialize with them more than you do. Thus, it’s important that your team is made up of trained and professional people.

Dr. Leslie Griesdorf is a former dentist who operated a private practice until 2003, when he sold it a former classmate. He now trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange from his home in the city.

Fitness Tips - HIIT

Many people want to get their bodies in better shape, and spend countless hours on exercise machines trying to do just that. The reason that some of these people do not experience success with these kind of training regimens is because often they do not know that they are going about it the wrong way.

Dr Leslie Griesdorf

When it comes to cardio, most people believe that the more you do, the more effective it is for you. This is actually a common misconception that often leads people to be stuck in a fitness rut. Doing low-intensity cardio for a long period of time can actually be detrimental to your weight loss goals, as it encourages the body to hold on to energy and conserve it in order to have it available for future exertions that it may encounter. That is why one of the most effective fat burning methods out there is HIIT, or high intensity interval training.

Studies have shown that thirty minutes of HIIT training is far more effective for burning fat than an hour of low to moderate intensity cardio. This is because the body is forced to expend excessive amounts of energy during the spikes of high intensity, and not capable of adapting because you will quickly return to a low-intensity pace afterwards. HIIT training usually consists of a period of extreme exertion, followed by a period of rest, or low-intensity cardiovascular activity. A typical HIIT program may have one minute of all-out sprinting, followed by two minutes of light jogging for thirty minutes.

Dr Leslie Griesdorf is a retired dentist who stays in shape by working out four times a week.

Karate’s Rise in Popularity

While many people today are familiar at least with the term karate, it was not always this way. In fact, karate as we know it today is much different than how it started. Karate has often been used as a generic term to encompass all oriental-based martial arts. This started because it World War 2, many United States servicemen were stationed in Okinawa, where the discipline originated. 

Dr Leslie Griesdorf

It was not long before interest in the discipline spread to America, who used the powerful media tool known as Hollywood to really raise awareness of the art. In the 1960s and 1970s, the abundance of martial arts movies would make karate become one of the most popular disciplines around. This is because movies were depicting karate as a powerful striking art that melded the mind and the body together. This caused karate schools to begin erupting all around the world as demand for the discipline skyrocketed. What was once a casual interest became a deeper fascination with the art itself.

The problem with karate’s rise in popularity is that many movies depicted the discipline as a powerful and enigmatic fighting style that could kill or incapacitate somebody in a single blow. This caused many misconceptions and warped the actual discipline of karate into some strange mutation by the mass media. Karate was established as a discipline that helps you combat the inner self through training and creativity. Its sole purpose was not to quickly dispatch an enemy.

Dr Leslie Griesdorf is a professional dentist who spends his free-time studying the discipline of karate.

The Development of Dentistry

Modern dentistry is owed not to the many technologies that we have today, but to all of the men and women who laid down the foundation for it in the past. Though there is evidence of dental work being practiced as early as 7000 BC and beyond, it wasn’t until the 1600s that a science was developed to help create modern dentistry. 

Dr Leslie Griesdorf

One of the earliest contributions of dentistry is owed to an English physician by the name of Thomas Browne. He wrote a book in which he observed that many Egyptian mummies did not have signs of tooth decay, indicating some kind of dental prosthetics were used. This would inspire some prosthetic work to be done in Europe as well. 

Strides in modern dentistry did not happen until the appearance of a French surgeon by the name of Pierre Fauchard. Today Fauchard is known as the “father of modern dentistry”. This is because despite the crude and primitive tools he had at his disposal during the 17th century, he still managed to become a highly skilled and respected surgeon who would adapt those primitive tools in order to make better dental instruments. This usually included improvising and using tools from jewelers and watchmakers for more precise work. Fauchard also introduced the use of dental fillings for cavities, as well as make the correct claim that acids in sugar were a leading cause of dental decay. He also created many dental prosthetics and suggested that tumors could be caused by late stages of tooth decay.

Dr Leslie Griesdorf is a professional dentist who is fascinated by the history surrounding the field.
