In 1981, in Owens, Illinois-the 6th glass plant in the world closed its doors. What followed was a domino effect of failed businesses, staggering unemployment and a devastatingly bleak economy. That was the year after Dr. Steven Rasner opened his practice. Regrettably, 29 years later, Bridgeton, NJ has remained nationally ranked for its unemployment, and poverty levels and lack of growth.
During this same time period, Dr. Rasner has nurtured a private fee-for-service practice that commands fees in the top percentile on the nation. It grosses over 4.1 million per year on a four-day workweek with a “two day per week” associate and a “substantial bottom line.” The practice has been a pillar of strength in community civic duty and was rewarded with Congressional Recognition Award in 2000.Dr. Rasner has published two books: The Protocol Book and The Art of Getting Paid and has appeared in several featured publications, including: Smart Money, Dental Economics, Dentistry Today and Contemporary Esthetics. Dr. Rasner has been recognized with numerous awards: Leader in CE- Dentistry Today 2005, Speaker of the Year at Masters Extravaganza Australia 2006, Toronto Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Highest rated speaker 2005.
