Being The Best Orthodontist

BROOKLYN ORTHODONTIST TED ROTHSTEIN ADVICE HOW TO BE THE BEST ORTHODONTIST

I first read How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie when I was in my teens. I was impressed, and even then it had a profound effect on me. When out of nowhere, I recently received this  3″ by 3″ foldout booklet containing many of the most essential parts of Carnegies’ message I read it again and the messages were still there as profound as ever. I decide to write them down to share them with you. Indeed, I even added a few of my own like “Taka nap” and ‘”Perfect” is the enemy of “Good”.
