t’s fall and that means the start of a new season, school year…and football season is in full swing. With the cooler weather, it’s also time to start planning your great escape south. Far south. South America and Peru is calling. This fall and winter, check off one of those perennial bucket-list places: Machu Picchu. It’s one of those sites that just about everyone knows of and can picture yet still wants to see for themselves. And should. It doesn’t disappoint, as our profiled dentist, (page 39) and celeb fashion designer Tory Burch attest (on page 7). But beyond the iconic hilltop UNESCO World Heritage Site is a vast and varied country, from jungle to high desert. In the Colca Valley, there’s the swoop of the condors, and in the Amazon basin, the swish of the pink dolphin (page 29). Find another kind of animal here in Canada, on the prairies. The Saskatchewan Roughriders fan. This is Rider Nation, and going to a game in Regina amidst a sea of green, spotting melon heads (yes, there are even instructions on how to carve a helmet out of a watermelon) in the packed stands is a bit of a safari experience. Beyond the football, there’s a warmth and culture here that’s makes every visitor feel welcome. With the province doing well economically, prairie living is good indeed—from gourmet fare to fine art (page 13). Across the border in the US the hospitality continues, midwest style in Wisconsin. The rather posh environs of Lake Geneva’s cottage country showcases fall’s changing leaves and old-school American genteel society. Hop aboard (page 5)! Back in Peru, there’s lovely Lima, the capital city that has it all, from the surfer lifestyle and celebrity chefs to colonial architecture and Aztec ruins (page 21).

Colourful Lake Geneva Being a northern ontario girl, wisconsin has always been synonymous with good cheese and, well, the “Dells”—extreme water sliding anyone?

US mailboat tour & antique yachting Unique to the area, mail is delivered on a daily basis by Lake Geneva Cruise Lines to about 60 homes from June to September (only a handful of places in the US still receive their post via boat). I watch in awe as a young athletic man (a mail jumper) hops off the boat, runs the dock, tucks the mail into the box, and hops back on without the boat stopping. Once in awhile the jumper doesn’t make it, which can be painfully entertaining to watch. With nearly 90 years of postal service on the lake, the athleticism of the mailrun is a must-see. After a tasty lunch at The Abbey Resort, the only full resort complete with a marina on the lake, I reboard the vintage Yacht Polaris (circa 1898). Restored with its original mahogany and brass, the Polaris was built for Otto Young, one of the original millionaires on the lake. As I sip my Wisconsin beer, William Gage, owner of the Polaris, describes the Lake Geneva autumn experience best: “It’s a shawl of colour that completely wraps around you.” cruiselakegeneva.com —Tiffany Jarva

Upgrade your iPhone Two smart + streamlined ways to get more out of your device 1 ZOOM IN There’s no question: the Instagram app has transformed point-andshoot photography apathy into an addiction. Apply a choice of filters (Lo-fi lets you saturate your shot’s colours, while 1977 gives it that retro flair) and the simplest detail is amplified into a work of art. And now the new Easy Macro Cell Lens Band ($15; photojojo.com) lets you take your single-lens mobile phone to new depths. A macro lens is embedded into a low-tech, heavy-duty rubber band that slips over any cell phone camera lens, enabling you to zoom in close while maintaining super-sharp detail. And when you’re not using the band, just wrap it around your wallet or wrist, but you’ll want to keep it handy for those impromptu photo ops.

2 STAY SLIM As far as portmanteaus go, the Callet ($20; thecallet.com)—part phone cover, part wallet—is as smart as it sounds. The clever case protects your phone and lets you safely stow your credit cards so your must-have items are all in one compact package. The streamlined and lightweight cover stretches over your iPhone or Blackberry (choose from four colours: blue, black, white, and pink), and it has two slots so you can stash a bit of cash when you need to travel light, whether rubbing shoulders at a concert or out for a run. —Janet Gyenes

ashion and travel are constant companions. Even before the tickets are booked, we begin the virtual packing and planning process, whether we’re winding down (while wearing a lounge-worthy caftan) or ready to strike a runway-proud pose decked-out in the height of style. American Fashion Travel: Designers on the Go, by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), reveals members’ travel tales, tips, and picture-postcard memories in this 144-page book. Diane von Furstenberg, CFDA president and mastermind behind the travel-friendly wrap dress, swears by small luggage and reveals her favourite city (hint: It’s home to the Blue Mosque). She also offers up a jet-lag remedy. It’s no surprise that Tory Burch often jaunts to India for the inspiration seen in her high-wattage collections. But who knew this jet-setter packs a red ribbon in her carry-on for good luck! Sun-seeking Betsey Johnson gamely reveals that she loves the beach, but loathes flying, so she travels “liquidly.” The inimitable designer’s travel tip? B.Y.O.F. That’s right.

Wear your obsession on your wrist Nikon or Canon? Prime lens or zoom? Auto focus or manual? Put the many questions to rest (or start the conversation), even when your SLR isn’t in tow, by donning the Lens Bracelet ® (from $15; photojojo.com), a quirkycool way to showcase your passion. Photography enthusiasts will recognize the simple design: it’s the focusing ring on a lens, embossed with those all-important details that meld art and science. The silicon bracelets, which come two to a set, are designed by travel and music photographer, Adam Elmakias, who originally created the bracelets as a business card, when starting out as a fledgling pro photog at the tender age of 16. Layer them on your wrist and show your allegiance to Nikon (our fave) with its 85-mm prime lens design (and drop a gift hint at the same time). Or, if Canon’s your mainstay (Elmakias’s choice), opt for an armload with the Bracelet Bundle C Series, and get all seven pro lens styles.­ photojojo.com —J.G.

Rosewood Hotel Georgia

s the last rays of sun danced across the western sky, I set up my camera and tripod at the corner of Rue St-Louis and Rue Ste-Ursule in Old Quebec City. I was shooting the street’s transition from day to night when a young British couple, SLRs dangling from their necks, exited a small souvenir shop. “Let’s head back to the hotel, dump the cameras and get something to eat,” said the woman. With a quick nod from her male companion, they trotted off down Rue St-Louis. I continued shooting. Putting away your camera when the sun goes down seems a natural thing to do. Maybe it’s all those bright sunny travel images that besiege us each day. Maybe the Bordeaux beckons. Or maybe a long day has left you creatively spent. But it’s worth the extra effort. Nighttime provides an opportunity to capture a destination’s exciting nocturnal side. Would my Quebec City couple dare to ditch their cameras at night if they were in Las Vegas or Times Square? Every destination has a dark side that’s easy to capture if you have a tripod or steady surface and a camera capable of shooting in manual, shutter or aperture mode (night images shot in auto or program mode usually come out too dark). The manual setting gives you the most control, but you can also compensate for the lack of light by using shutter or aperture

How to take advantage of the inky night light: Shoot within 90 minutes of the sun setting to get that desirable deep indigo blue in the sky (wait too long, and the sky is just black). ABOVE This shot of the Dome of the Rock and Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel, was taken from a rooftop with the camera and medium wide-angle of 35mm lens resting on my camera bag (I didn’t have my tripod with me and there was not enough room to set it up anyway). I used the camera’s self-timer to trip the shutter to minimize camera shake. RIGHT This photo of an Arab man at the Luxor Temple in Egypt was taken using a tripod and a telephoto zoom lens set around 180mm because I didn’t want to interrupt his smoke (the telephoto lens allowed some distance and a candid quality; had I gone right up to the man he probably would have gotten up and left).

> Shoot at a low ISO (100 or 200). Higher ISOs record more light,

but also lend a grainy or gritty quality to your images that’s rarely desirable in a night shot. I dial down the ISO and help the camera maximize light in other ways (shutter speed and aperture).

> Use a tripod to steady the camera, so you can leave the shut-

ter open longer to let in more light. But even with a tripod, the slight vibration caused by pressing the camera’s shutter-release button is enough to blur long-exposure shots. A remote cable or electronic release eliminates most vibrations. If your camera doesn’t have this capability, use the self-timer. Set it for three to five seconds and press the shutter button. This allows enough time for the camera to stop vibrating before the shutter opens.

> Don’t have a tripod? Rest your camera on a table, car hood, railing, garbage can or even a mailbox and use the self-timer. I also use a door jam or telephone pole to brace my camera.

> Review each shot on your camera’s LCD at 100% magnification to make sure it’s sharp.

Ready to take it to the next level? gear up All tripods have legs and a head. The head is the

swivel part of the tripod you connect the camera to. Spend the extra dollars and get a ball head (Manfrotto, Benbo, FLM). Try to avoid heads with three or more adjustment handles and knobs. Mini tripods ($20 – $40 by Joby, Sunpack, Giottos, Vanguard) work well with lighter point-and-shoots and DSLRs. Heavier DLSRs, especially those with telephoto lens, require sturdier aluminum tripods ($100 – $300 by Optex, Slik, Velbon). Ultra-light carbonfibre models (like Manfrotto, Sherpa, Induro, Gitzo) range in price from $300 – $600.

The allure of nighttime shooting: This street scene was shot in Old Quebec City, highlighting motion blur from pedestrians and the streaks of taillights. The camera was set up on a tripod with a medium wide angle lens (35mm). Aperture priority was used to control the depth of field, and the camera’s self-timer was used to trip the shutter.

10

priority (check your manual for instructions on changing the shooting mode) to control the speed at which the shutter opens and closes (shutter speed) and size of lens opening (aperture). The chart on page below gives you typical shutter speeds and aperture settings for various types of night photography. They’re just a starting point and may vary with type of camera, so experiment a bit. Moody skyline images really add to a travel portfolio and there’s no better time to shoot them than just after sunset or before sunrise (up to 90 minutes after sunset or before sunrise). Buildings stand out better in the bluish hues of late evening or the pinkish pre-dawn glows than in a totally black sky. I also love nighttime street scenes and you can capture them any time after sunset. For that bustling, vibrant nightlife shot, try to include people in the scene even if they appear blurred. For that deserted street look, keep the shutter open for at least 25 seconds. Moving objects are not recorded. To capture dramatic streaming car lights, select a section of the street with an assortment of not-too-bright lights. Frame your shot and time how long it takes for the car to enter and leave your frame of view. If it takes the cars about five seconds to pass through your frame then add three or so seconds and set your shutter speed for about eight seconds. Try to compose the shot so the cars enter near a corner of your frame. Shoot their streaming taillights (bright headlights tend to burn out the scene). Push your shutter button just before the cars enter your frame. Bright lights shot with smaller apertures, such as f16 and f22, produce starburst flaring. Some are okay, but too many can ruin a shot. Wider apertures like f2.8 or f4 produce softer, more romantic images. Night photography is much more forgiving than daylight shooting. Don’t be intimidated. Review your camera controls, use the handy shooting chart, take a small flashlight (for setting camera controls in the dark) and don’t be in a hurry to get back to the hotel.

T

his is the “Land of the Living Skies,” where fluffy cottonball-like clouds flit by one moment and stormy, dark ones take over the next. The prairie sky in Saskatchewan is full of intoxicating beauty, from placid to churning. It’s striking. So much so that people in Regina still talk of “the storm of the century,” the epic tornado that levelled the city in 1912. With winds that reached 400 kilometres per hour, the Great Regina Cyclone left a long-standing imprint as the worst tornado to hit the nation to date. The city even had a festival to commemorate the 100th anniversary last year, and each summer draws some serious storm watchers here, coming from far and wide to chase the tornadoes that churn up the prairies (think Twister, the Hollywood movie). But what the “stormy” past really reveals is a forthright prairie mentality. People here are strong and hardy (“We don’t take anything for granted here,” is an oft-repeated

Who knows what the city will come up with for 2013’s Grey Cup taking place in Regina… There’s certainly a cowboy spirit here, whether seen in those Riders-green cowboy hats or the rather gentlemanly security crew on horseback at the Craven Country Jamboree 9 (cravencountryjamboree.com). This annual outdoor fest, called “The World’s Greatest Country Music Festival,” is another all-out party with legions of devoted locals planning their summers around the event. It’s been going on now for almost 30 years just outside Regina, set in the bucolic Qu’Appelle Valley. This is big sky and rolling-green-hills country 1 and dispels any notion of the flat, nondescript scenery you might expect. Get off the Trans-Canada Highway and forget flat. This landscape is mercurial (with that living sky), undulating and alive. En route there are flashes of bright yellow—ribbons of canola and mustard, screaming photo op 6 . This is iconic prairie produce, but there’s much more growing

“There’s a lot to do and nothing to block the view” refrain)—and welcoming. Go to a Saskatchewan Roughriders game (‘tis the season!) for some whipped-up frenzy and storm watching of another sort. One fan jokes that “We’re all born with tattoos,” and “It’s the longest relationship I’ve been in.” Given that about 70% of all the Canadian Football League’s merchandise sales come from Riders fans (the publicly owned team sells more merchandise than all the other CFL clubs combined), it’s one serious commitment (riderville.com). So serious that grown men happily wile away their time carving helmets out of watermelons to sport on game day 8 , wearing them with flags-as-capes and anything and everything green. It’s a sea of green in the stadium and everywhere in Regina. Stop for a local pint at Bushwakker brewpub (bushwakker.com) pre- or post-game, and you may feel out of place without some Riders paraphernalia on, be it a jersey, cowboy hat or some other crafted homage to the team. In the local grocery store you’ll find “All-Dressler” chips and “Dario’s” cereal (named for star players Weston Dressler and Darian Durant) and even “Rider Pride” ice cream (green, of course).

here. Beyond the beautiful beets, peas and radishes at the downtown Regina Farmers’ Market 10 , there are cherries (making surprisingly tasty cherry wine from Cypress Hills Vineyard and Winery, the only winery in the province; cypresshillswinery.com), berries (from saskatoons to strawberries) and even grapes, apricots and peaches (at the organic Over the Hill Orchards; overthehillorchards.ca). Local restaurants are joining the food-to-fork movement, utilizing this bounty to create gourmet dishes—from posh poutine with roast mushroom sauce and short rib (yes!) at Flip Eatery (fliprestaurant.ca) to the minted spring pea, lemon and ricotta ravioli dish from The Willow on Wascana (willowonwascana.ca), fittingly called Peas du Resistance (divine!) 5 . For something more down-home, there’s Merv’s Pitchfork Fondue (on wheels, Merv can set up anywhere in the city or in the midst of the Qu’Appelle Valley) for ribeye steak like you’ve never had it before 4 (mervspitchforkfondue.com). Back at The Willow, your gourmet fare comes with a unique side—the largest urban park in North America. The 2,300-acre Wascana Centre (wascana.sk.ca) in the centre of Regina surrounds Wascana Lake where you

Just For Canadian dentists September/October 2012

can watch the Regina Rowing Club practise strokes on the glassy surface. There’s certainly a stateliness to the park (two times the size of Stanley Park in Vancouver; three times the size of Central Park in Manhattan), and that grandeur is found throughout the city. At the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Heritage Centre, reverence is given to the iconic red-coated Mountie with trusty steed and broadbrimmed Stetson hat 2 , as seen in the huge photo that greets you in the entry. Seeing the modern Arthur Ericksondesigned building itself is a must 3 , and then, inside, you’re transported back through the RCMP’s 139 years. Even better, visit while the Sergeant Major’s Parade takes place for full-on regalia (rcmpheritagecentre.com). For more old-school cool, there’s the Hotel Saskatchewan (where the Queen herself has stayed while in Regina), one of the château-style hotels of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s heyday (boasting original chandeliers and perhaps a few ghostly patrons; hotelsask.com). The hotel mixes old colonial character with the funky flair of some independent shops on site—from a barber shop (with original tiles, sinks and chairs) and day spa to a French-style pâtisserie that follows that newfound foodie movement going on throughout the city 7 (Koko Pâtisserie; kokopatisserie.com). It’s all a mix of old and new, cowboy and cosmopolitan, country and cool. Regina has retained its roots—proudly—but is also becoming far more than its past. Simply put, it’s happening. Life here is good, everyone will tell you. The resource-based economy is booming (thanks to potash, oil and gas). Regina has the lowest unemployment rate in the country and the largest increase in housing values. And, with both the Grey Cup and Juno Awards taking place in Regina next year, expect things to just keep getting hotter. Yet people remember the hard times— whether that great cyclone or flooding or drought, and, again, will repeat point-blank, “We don’t take anything for granted here.” Maybe it’s something to do with that big sky…it tends to keep things in perspective. The landscape here has a quiet drama. That colossal sky is what dominates. Or, as one local puts it, “There’s lots to do and nothing to block the view.”

n the last issue, we covered how new graduates puzzle through today’s business climate. Here, we continue from setting up a new practice (in the July/August issue of Just for Canadian Dentists) to purchasing an established office or entering into associateship, and post-graduate/academic studies.

Buying a practice Unlike starting up a new practice from scratch, buying a practice that has already been established has some definite benefits. For example, a patient base will already exist, allowing you to not only keep busy but also to maintain cash flow. Because of the collateral, you will have easier access to financing should you need to renovate, upgrade, etc. You will also have an experienced staff that is not only familiar with the patients, but can help integrate you into the practice and assist in the transition. This is especially helpful if the previous owner has not remained for a time to assist with these matters. What you may run into, however, is that an established practice often has older equipment—both clinical and business-oriented— that may need to be replaced or upgraded. Compared to the benefits of immediate cash flow, this is a minor problem. As well, most new dentists wish to be in the major city centres (Toronto, Vancouver, and so on) where there’s a limited supply of practices for sale. This could result in looking to buy a practice in a location that may not be desirable to you or your lifestyle choices. Sometimes your clinical philosophies and personality may differ significantly from your predecessor. This alone is a key reason why purchasers must consider far more than just the economics of a practice purchase.

Entering an associateship There are three main advantages to associating with another (established) dentist. At the top of that list is the fact that there is no financial commitment required. After years of student loans, the last thing some new dentists want to do is go into more debt just as they are launching their career. An associateship also offers an excellent learning opportunity with an established dentist who may develop into a cherished mentor. And thirdly, if that does not turn out to be the case,

and you want to move on to new scenery, you have the freedom to relocate. The downside is that as the “new kid on the block,” you’ll likely be required to work hours the owner won’t—often evening and weekends. You may see the “simple” cases, as the owner may reserve more complex treatments for himself or herself at first. Remember that the owner has control over patient flow and income, while you have limited job security. When/if you decide to move on, you may have restrictive covenants limiting the area you may practise in. If you’ve left the practice to enter into ownership of your own, you may discover that you’ve become comfortable with little or no investment/financial responsibility in associateship. Your income may be lower at first, making it difficult if you’re accustomed to a certain lifestyle around your associate income.

rofessional conferences spirit each of us away to many funtastic destinations. My long-term recall of course content fades with time. In contrast, my memories of the destination itself auto-enhance. Like with Florida’s Amelia Island… Florida boasts a heady 2,300 miles of coastline, though Amelia Island is just 13 miles long, situated a few hundred yards offshore into the Atlantic, cheek-by-jowl with the Georgia-

play old cars—with each of the >220 entrant’s endlessly obsessing to achieve the holy grail of the “100 point car”—as judged by its originality, significance, craftsmanship, authenticity, poise, condition and swimsuit segment (okay, just kidding about the poise). So what cars own the podium on the Concours’ lawn? Answer, while any car can be entered, the “dead celebrity” luxury brands from the late 1920s and 1930s dominate.

Florida border. The Island holds an impressive history, both pre- and post-contact, laying claim to sequential rule by eight colonial and New World powers. Today, Amelia Island’s main economic driver is catering to North America’s idle rich. It’s Concours d’Elegance, a celebration of automotive beauty, is now in its 17th year and, by far, the largest event on Amelia Island’s tourism calendar. Temperate climate is assured on the Concours’ second weekend of March date (March 8 – 10 in 2013). Show-Sunday in 2012 being the warmest of the three days with a high of 72F / 22C. The host venue, the fabulous Ritz Carlton Amelia Island, is located a 30-minute drive north from the Jacksonville airport. Rooms at the Ritz, or at the downthe-beach Omni, book up early with 20,000 weekend attendees. Concours is a French word meaning “competition,” while Elegance translates into English unaltered. Combining the two words results in a peer-reviewed beauty pageant of static dis-

Unassailability is further augmented if the actual car was once owned by a now-dead celebrity or royal. Many of these storied brands ceased to exist years before Hitler doublecrossed Stalin. The brand bankruptcies reads like roll call at the G8…America’s Duesenberg and Pierce Arrow, Germany’s Maybach and Horch, France’s Voison and Bugatti, Britain’s Lagonda and Invicta, Spanish/Swiss HispanoSuiza, Italy’s Isotta-Franschini, and dozens more. Luxury car-makers during the interwar period typically produced just the chassis frame, engine and running gear. So efficient, Concours taxonomy starts at the radiator cowl and then hones in to the radiator cap mascot. The engineering unleashed in the 1930s was both varied and advanced: straight eights, vee twelves, vee sixteens, multi-stage superchargers, to name just a few. The proud purchasers of such rolling technology would then send their bodiless chassis from the “car” maker to their coachbuilder of choice. Dozens of these coachwork houses

(H.J. Mulliner of London’s Mayfair, Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, Saoutchik of Paris, etc.) also experienced an orgy of bespoke excess in the 1930s and then faded to black. Unrivalled oneof-a-kind automotive masterpieces resulted in the interwar period, which, thankfully, modern enthusiasts appreciate and restore. Fittingly, after WWII the last top-tier car companies to give up routinely outsourcing custom coachwork were Rolls Royce and Ferrari. Today’s ongoing influence of the 1930s designers and craftsmen is demonstrated by the 2012 Winners of Best in Show at the top USA “triple crown” Concours events: 2012 Amelia Island/1938 Bugatti Type 57C, MeadowBrook (July co-winners)/1933 Chrysler Imperial and 1933 Delage D8S, Pebble Beach (August) 1928

Post-graduate/academics Many new graduates in dentistry decide not to step out into the working world at all, opting to remain in school on a path to research or to earn a specialty certificate or degree. If you choose a route towards a specialty, be sure to consider the economics. While the cost of post-graduate training is extensive, you put off investment in equipment and leaseholds (typically $175,000+), and a long-term premise lease committing you to substantial rents. Then, when entering into a private practice as a specialist in another one to four years, you will usually have a higher earning potential. As well, by 2012, there will be more private practices available for purchase from the baby boomer generation of dentists retiring. Of course, staying in school also means extra tuition and more hours of study and research, but these are often in the newest techniques and products. An important factor to be aware of is that, if you choose to remain in academics and eventually teach, there are limited positions at most universities, a trend that’s unchanging. Whatever you decide to do with the next phase of your dental career, you need to understand that the economy of dentistry is changing and the market is forever evolving. You’ll need to look ahead and try to maintain a global “dental economics” perspective.

yond the car scene (I know, I’m incredulous too), there are numerous other attractions on Amelia Island. I can speak to naturalist-guided walking tours of the beaches/dunes, guided kayak tours of the marshes, championship-calibre golf, historic Civil-War era Fort Clinch, or yacht cruises to Cumberland Island. Shop therapy? Spa tune-ups? Lots at the Ritz, the Omni, or in old-town Fernandina. Even a full-on fashion show, something to consider if you covet that Great Gatsby look come Saturday evening at Mercedes Benz’s Black Tie Concours Gala. For any other evening, stash the tux and book a table at Salt, the Ritz’s fine dining restaurant, for you’ll be the toast of your party. The moniker Salt is not meant to indicate they serve Atlantic seafood (which they do), but rather to highlight how they weave into the menu, from obscure corners of the globe, dozens of specialty salts. The salt/dish marrying process has parallels to wine pairings. Hard-core foodies absolutely must book Salt’s “kitchen table,” a fishbowl-like dining table/ room smack centrally within Salt’s kitchen. Such a table sounded a bit odd (as did salt pairings), until we savoured it. Now I’m sold on all of it: salt pairings…Salt… The Ritz…Concours…Amelia Island. I’ve become a real fanboy.

Mercedes Benz 680S. The collective field value at each of these triple-crown events is pushing a cool billion dollars, and you can drink in all that coolness for your charity-supporting $50-admission fee. Perhaps 1930s opulence is not your automotive thing, or you can’t differentiate a Marmon from a Morgan? Not to worry. To appeal to a wider and repeat audience, each Concours also features one-off themes, and a human Honoree or two. In 2013, Amelia Island has announced celebrations of 50 years of Porsche 911 and Ford GT40, with further focus on Harry Millar’s Indy racers and retired racer and contemporary poet Sam Posey. Like moths to a flame, more automotive events are staking out the second weekend in March on Amelia Island. Rival auction houses RM and Gooding both hold mega-million-dollar sales. Raise your hand at the right/wrong moment and you could own a Concours-worthy beauty. Concourso Atlantico, a celebration of Italian cars past and present, runs at the Omni, while the Automotive Fine Arts Society fits at the Ritz. Both hotels host displays by today’s top sport and luxury car brands, where they want you to drive their finest offerings. If some in your party crave something be-

Don’t let fraud catch you off guard. With your name on the front door, protecting your assets and reputation should be a top priority. Since you spend more time with patients than other business owners, you are more vulnerable to fraud. In 2010, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners reported that the average loss against professional practices from fraud schemes was $110,000 per year. Given all your responsibilities in running a practice, preventing internal theft and protecting confidential information can be a challenge. That’s where we can help. MNP’s Fraud Prevention team can help you assess your greatest fraud risks and design a simple, effective mitigation plan.

Solutions, which developed and licenses Recall System Pro. “The problem with patient recall is that it’s a monster. It’s very complex. It’s a system that if done well, you can organize and manage a lot of information. Most people don’t have the time to manage and organize the system. They only have time to make the calls,” he says. Barsotti and his wife had been providing practice management consulting to dentists for two decades and continually saw the problems created by recall. They also saw a solution that could work well when properly managed (which is what they did). But the Barsottis couldn’t be everywhere and they knew they had the collective knowledge and experience to create an automated system that would directly address the current recall issues. “Current products in the marketplace offered automated messaging as a comprehensive solution to the challenges of patient recall. Although helpful, automated messaging alone is not robust enough to tackle the job of patient recall,” says Barsotti. ”Automated messaging does not allow dental practices to correct some of the core problems that are essential to having an effective recall system which, simply put, pre-schedules your patients, confirms their appointments sooner, and captures all of the patients who are unscheduled and get them scheduled.” Recall System Pro is a subscription-based software solution offering a cloud-based application. It works alongside your current practice-management software systems. “Most practice-management software was functionally cumbersome to work with. It wasn’t streamlined. Patients needing follow-up could get lost in the system,” says Barsotti. “I could take 20 years of consulting and boil it down to two-to-three concepts. It was something I could do to make a difference.” Recall System Pro extracts information from the dentist’s practice-management system in a fully automated way. It pre-schedules patients before they leave; helps confirm appointments sooner to reduce cancellations; and captures patients who fall out of the system to allow the staff to schedule and follow-up efficiently. Call lists are organized and prioritized so

staff only devotes the time it takes to make the call. Even with automated messages, personal contact is always needed, so the system includes integrated coaching for staff on making these types of calls. There’s a script and a communication guideline. “It’s the only application that sits directly on the desktop. It easily integrates day-to-day and all functionality is accessible at any point in the staff’s workflow,” he says. A subscription currently costs $395 a month, with a proven return on investment. “We built in a diagnostic tool so we can run an analysis of their existing appointments and frequency of appointments. We can determine the impact our system will have before the dentist makes a decision to purchase by analyzing hygiene frequencies. We can show dentists what they can expect by putting our system to work,” explains Barsotti. “Our analysis demonstrates an expected 15-to-20% increase in revenue. Conservatively, 15-to-20% is absolutely achievable. If you can add two hygiene appointments each month that you would otherwise not have, you have paid for the system.” The system has been available for two years and is used primarily in Alberta and scattered throughout the US. The system was rigorously built with a robust platform to handle large volumes of data. The software, says Barsotti, is making a difference. “We’ve seen the impact our system brings. We see significant increases in productivity and decreases in stress,” says Barsotti. “We want dentists to do better and by focusing on patient recall—if they can get that going, the rest will fall into place. The more patients in the hygiene chair, the more patients in restorative treatment. Our software drives hygiene and restorative revenue.”

t’s the bane of every dental clinic receptionist—scheduling or re-scheduling recall visits. Most receptionists are far too busy to be chasing people with multiple phone calls, texts and emails and a patient who gets lost in the system, as many do when they want to change an appointment, translates into lost revenue for the practice. What’s worse is the chore of filling shortnotice appointments—getting new patients in a chair vacated by a cancelled appointment. “That’s the number-one source of stress for office staff. Filling short-notice appointments is an unrelenting problem faced every day. I have seen staff scramble to fill appointments. There’s something about the culture of an open dental appointment that creates stress for the team,” says Ron Barsotti, president of Recall System

hile most visitors to Peru start and finish their visit in the country’s rambling capital, many treat Lima as a drive-through city—a place to fly into on their way to visiting Machu Picchu, the Andes and the Amazon, before flying out again from the city’s international airport. And that’s a shame. Situated near the sea and with a number of worthwhile attractions—cultural, culinary and otherwise—Lima is a great place to linger, a vast and fascinating Latin American city with much more to offer than just a long runway capable of landing jumbo jets. The Barranco District is a great starting point for your visit. This coastal community is also one of the oldest parts of greater Lima, a colourful and cool place that brings together history and natural beauty. Walk the pedestrian streets past a mix of glassy, modern condos and restored colonial homes (in shades of pink, blue, yellow and green, and combinations thereof), plus sidewalk cafes and

great little restaurants, before joining the crowd and heading down to the beach, where you can watch most of the men (and a few women) engaging in heated soccer matches on the sandy, sunny pitch. After that, travel a little bit north, to Miraflores, Lima’s famous seaside suburb. Lined with beautiful beaches that back onto vertiginous sea cliffs, Miraflores is a dramatic place that evokes something of a California-Pacific feel. Take in the cliff-top views from El Parque del Amor, a happy place with a tile mosaic wall and a statue of a couple in the throes of an amorous kiss (appropriately enough, it’s called El Beso, or, “The Kiss”)—a pose mimicked by a number of the park’s visitors, who spread out on the grass and get into the spirit under the shade of olive trees. And while it’s a little distance away from the sea, the main square in Miraflores is also worth a visit, a broad, green space that serves as a quiet retreat where joggers share space with the many artists

who sell their own handiwork on easels along the footpaths. But no visit to Lima would be complete without a visit to its very heart—Plaza de Armas, in the colonial centre of the city. Dominated by the Presidential Palace and the city’s Cathedral, it’s both a beautiful and bustling place, where taxis and horse-drawn carriages jockey for position on the streets that surround it and tourists and newlywed couples alike pose for photos in front of the square’s flowing fountain. Then walk just a few steps and settle in for a well-deserved dinner at Tanta, which features the Peruvian cuisine of Gaston Acurio, the country’s most famous chef, where the food—delicious combinations of seafood, yucca, fresh fruits and other local ingredients—will make it obvious why Lima is sometimes known as the gastronomic capital of the Americas. —Tim Johnson For more on Lima and Peru, go to peru.travel/en/.

ith the back-to-school rush, it seems that there aren’t enough hours in a day to do all that needs to be done. When you’re too busy to make dinner from scratch, a store-bought roast chicken offers a much-appreciated head start. Convenient rotisserie birds, available at many supermarkets, may not be as moist and flavourful as homeroasted, but, even when less than perfect, the meat can be transformed into a delicious entrée. For cooks on the run, a quick main course salad or a hearty sandwich are a far cry from plain chicken. Moreover, the bird can do triple duty, providing a second meal later in the week and the carcass can be

n the retelling, the swim probably sounds like a bad idea.

mighty river—the place that marks the starting point of the world’s greatest waterway. But now, bunched together in a group in the middle of the Rio Ucayali— like kids on Christmas Eve hoping for a glimpse of Kris Kringle—we eagerly dug our feet into the muddy riverbed and awaited the arrival of the mysterious pink dolphin.

Peru, now one of Latin America’s economic powerhouses and a new culinary mecca, is a place with a lot to offer. I was off on a fascinating journey, and one with quite a few surprises along the way.

There, I joined a group of my fellow guests from the Delphin II, a small, boutique, luxury cruise boat that plies the waters of the Ucayali and the Marañon, the two principal headwaters of the Amazon. Later, we would spend some time at the place where the two intersect and form one

Passing thatched buildings and lush rainforest along the one-and-ahalf hour drive to the river town of Nauta (one road connects these two places alone), I arrived at the ship, which looks a bit like an old school cartoon riverboat (but without the paddlewheel)— three decks of comfortable, air-conditioned hammocks, cushy couches and beautiful open spaces, perfect for whiling away a

Organic gin laced with local hops, rose hips and rosemary

Tips for purchasing a dental practice that’s right for you

I

M

t’s all about the dirt. That much is clear when sipping Schramm Organic Canadian Dry Gin in the tasting room at Pemberton Distillery. Not dirt in a gritty, cringe-inducing way, but the character it imparts, which can be detected in a wine with mineral notes or artisan cheese, for example. The taste is in the terroir. Where Whistler is spotlighted for its superb snow sports, Pemberton, a village 35 km north, has a more down-to-earth claim to fame: potatoes. Spud Valley, as the locale is known, can thank its violent volcanic past for its crowning glaciers and fertile soil, which produce virusfree seed potatoes. And Tyler Schramm, master distiller at Pemberton Distillery, has elevated this starchy staple into a top-shelf potato spirit—and awardwinning organic vodka—that’s the base alcohol for his organic gin. In some respects, it’s always been about the terroir for Schramm. Backtrack almost a decade and he was completing his geography degree, specializing in resource management, and with a strong interest in organic agriculture. “I always wanted to do something related to that, but wasn’t sure how I fit into that program.” When one of Schramm’s brothers purchased a 10-acre plot of land planted with potatoes, along with it came the idea for setting up a micro-distillery and making an organic potato vodka. But British Columbia’s antiquated liquor laws made it “virtually impossible,” says Schramm, who recommitted to the concept in 2005. He spent the following year in Scotland earning a master’s degree in brewing and distilling and finally hit pay dirt when the B.C. government changed its licensing regulations. “It took me a year and a small mountain of paperwork” to get a distillery license, says Schramm. The brothers built the distillery (incorporating a German-made, hand-built copper-and-steel pot still), and started making spirits in 2009. The potato vodka was earning accolades, a single-malt whisky was in production, and Schramm admits that he had no interest in distilling a gin. That was until fellow member of the Artisan Distillers Guild of British Columbia contended that gin couldn’t be made from anything other than a neutral alcohol. “They were basically claiming that a B.C.

craft distillery couldn’t start from scratch and ferment their own product and make a gin out of it,” Schramm explains, “so we took that on as a bit of a challenge.” Cork popped on bottle #297 of Batch #6, and there’s the initial resinous aroma and spicy notes anticipated from a classic London dry gin. The cool liquid, served neat, is unabashedly juniperforward, with an unexpected hit of hops.

al gin. and his artisan

“We wanted to give it a little bit of West Coast flair,” says Schramm, whose wife and business partner, Lorien, came up with the blend of all-organic botanicals. “And rose hips, rosemary and hops all grow really well in this area, so we threw those in.” Ceylon cinnamon, angelica root and orange peel round out the recipe. Each batch of the artisanal gin has varied sightly, even though the blend and proportion of organic botanicals remains constant. Adjusting the percentage alcohol in each can really alter the profile of the spirit, especially the juniper and hops, which come through first. But it all boils down to that ever-present potato. “The mouth feel is quite a bit different,” says Schramm.

“If you sip it next to a grain-based gin, it’s very smooth on your palate. It’s kind of an earthy flavour … sort of a combination of the potato spirit and the rosemary.” While the gutsy gin daunts vodka devotees, gin lovers embrace it. Most sip it neat, or forego the tonic in favour of a splash of soda. Lemon or lime? “Neither,” says Schramm. He prefers to let the botanicals “have a chance to come through on their own.” Does the Pemberton potato terroir truly shine through in the spirit? “Absolutely,” says Schramm, grinning. “When I first registered the vodka with the [B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch], I tried—unsuccessfully—to give our vodka a vintage. 2012 is going to be an From Spud to Spirit extremely good potato year.

ost young associates dream of having their own practice and building it into a successful business. Purchasing a dental practice is an exciting endeavour, but not without risk. Making the wrong move can be a career buster. Before you buy, consider these factors. The first step in purchasing a practice is simply figuring out if practice ownership is right for you.

know him/her better; the most successful practice purchases are the ones where the seller and purchaser hit it off instantly. When two people share the same philosophy and values, the transition will be smooth, and any obstacles in the purchase and sale process removed quickly. If you have trouble bonding with the dentist on your first visit, make it your last. Before the visit, do the necessary research to determine whether or not this opportunity is worth pursuing. Collect information about the reputation of the dentist and the clinic within the community. Assess the practice location; is this an area where you want to work everyday? Assess the community in terms of economic stability and potential for growth. When planning your visit ask yourself: • What pertinent information do I need from the vendor? • What background information about the dentist and the practiceshouldI gather? • What personal information am I willing to share with the vendor?

During the practice visit, be certain to ask all your questions. Don’t be shy. Also, make sure you see the entire property, including the rest of the building if that is part of the deal. It’s important that you take your time viewing the practice; don’t rush or you may miss key details. If the practice visit goes well and the practice meets your requirements, discuss purchase with your financial and legal advisors. They will review the practice valuation and financial statements to determine the viability of the purchase and guide you through the sale process. It’s important to have advisors you trust and who know you, your goals and are looking out for your best interests. Purchasing a dental practice is one of the most significant milestones in a dentist’s career. Make it a positive experience by asking the right questions, doing your due diligence and being honest with yourself. The bottom line: you want to find a practice that is right for you!

Who qualifies? Anyone who owns a business of any size, employees and dependents. No health questions or age limits. This is not insurance. What’s covered? 100% of virtually all dental and medical expenses. Visit our website www.trustedadvisor.ca for a complete list. What’s the cost? There is a one-time set-up fee plus applicable taxes. The additional cost is 10% administration fee plus applicable taxes, depending on which province you live in.
