After qualifying from Leeds Dental School in 1996, Dr Harry Singh followed the traditional VT, Associate and Principal routes in dentistry, owning three dental practices along the way. Amongst these was ‘Aesthetics’, an award-winning private practice in Hertfordshire. Like most dentists, Harry was making good money; however, it left him working long hours and missing out on family time, hobbies, holidays, going to the gym, healthy eating, etc. Even when Harry was away from the practice, he found himself thinking about patient emergencies or complaints, as well as staff issues. Feeling alone on a professional level and unhappy with his lifestyle, Harry sought to make a change so, as well as practicing dentistry, he started to invest in property and stumbled upon some professional property secrets that helped to develop his business interests. Over a 2-year period Harry bought 27 properties and sold 6. The profits from these deals allowed him to buy into dental practices and set up 2 squat practices. The passive income that these properties brought in covered all of his financial commitments, enabling him to reduce his clinical dentistry hours and to spend more time with his family and on himself. Eventually he found that he was making more money from property and practicing dentistry two days a week, rather than full-time. Last year he retired from dentistry to concentrate on the property side of his work. He now has a property portfolio valued at around £7 million, yielding a passive income of £8000 per month. Understanding that many dentists feel as isolated and trapped as he did, Harry wants to ‘give something back’ to his dental colleagues via the Dental Property Club, which is designed to share with members the information, expertise and knowledge he has gathered along the way.
