Dr. Joanne Block Rief’s career in dentistry started at the young age of 13. She not only helped her father at his dental practice in Annapolis, but worked for a temporary agency as a dental assistant before starting Dental Hygiene school. She graduated from hygiene school in 1982 and started dental school that same year and graduated from University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 1986. After graduation, she practiced with her mentor, who happened to be her father, for 18 years until she purchased her own office 7 minutes from her home and 7 minutes from her children’s school, which is called Crossroads Dental Arts. Many of the 800 patients in the practice did not stay for various reasons, and she knew that, to be successful, she was going to have to learn to market her practice and become a great business woman. Since she purchased her practice 15 years ago, she has grown it by 5 times, moved it, enlarged it and taken on an associate while maintaining a very low overhead. Besides practicing dentistry full time, Dr. Rief lectures to dentists and dental students on practice management and dental marketing.
