Checkmate Your Competition: Dental Labs and Chess Strategy

In this blog I'm bringing you two pieces of content that have had a profound impact on my life. They offer unique yet universal lessons that I believe can be valuable for anyone, especially those in the dental lab industry.

First, A Blast from the Past: Why an Old Article?

First up is an article from 2008 about Dale Dental, the first company I started, back in 2000. While the article is over a decade old, it’s a bit of a time capsule and touches on a unique business model at the time as well as a bit about the specialized company and the innovative software we built.

Next Up, A Book Worth Your Time: "Every Move Must Have a Purpose"

Secondly, as you might guess from the article, chess has been a hobby of mine since I was a kid and there are a lot of cliché thoughts about how chess is like business, or negotiation, etc. However I came across this book that delves into the actual fascinating parallels between chess and business strategy. Bruce Pandolfini's "Every Move Must Have a Purpose" breaks down complex chess strategies into straightforward lessons that can be applied in various aspects of life and business. It’s a great read and I highly recommend it to anyone who is either a fan of chess, business or both!

I hope you find value in both and gain some useful insights that you can apply in your own professional journey.
