5 Ways Dentists Can Build Wealth, Get Out Of Debt & Reach Financial Freedom

As the costs of going to dental school keep increasing, dental professionals need to find ways to work towards financial independence and a debt-free future. However, many new dentists still struggle to clear their student loans and other high-interest-rate debt. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way!

Caroline Clerisme is a dentist in New Hampshire and the founder of Doctors Out of Debt, a company that helps doctors create generational wealth and pay off debt. 

When Caroline graduated from Tufts in 2011, she had massive debt in student loans. Her job at the time didn't pay enough, and soon Caroline found herself wondering whether she could ever manage to pay off that debt. 

Caroline remembered her mother's advice regarding debt - live pretty much below your means and always save something - and she decided to stick to it.

She started implementing proven debt repayment strategies and finding multiple income streams. But more importantly, she decided to change her mindset, which had always held her back.

By developing these financial strategies and adopting a positive mindset, Caroline was able to pay off the $250,000 of her debt in only four years!

She believes that even the way you practice dentistry changes when you are debt free. It's a great feeling to have that peace of mind, bless others, travel, and be generous with money.

Caroline's passion has pushed her to help many doctors grow wealth and get out of debt at the same time, some even managing to triple their income in a couple of months.
