Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with John Truitt, Founder of Clinical Foundation For Orthopedics & Orthodontics, located in Gainesville, TX, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We educate dentists and physicians on how to recognize and treat children as young as 4 years of age whose faces and jaws are not developing correctly. This early treatment not only solves their dental malocclusion but also addresses airway obstruction, ear infections, and correct function of the temporal mandibular joints.

Tell us about yourself

I began practicing in 1967 and quickly realized my lack of knowledge in treating young children suffering from malocclusions. I continued my education by studying under doctors who understood the value of early treatment.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I have educated over 200K doctors worldwide, who in turn have been able to improve the quality of life for countless children.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The responsibility of taking care of the people working for you.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Understand the need for your product or service.
  2. Meet the need.
  3. Keep the quality high.

Where can people find you and your business?
