My name is John Norwood. I am a 2006 graduate of Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX.
I was a non-traditional student; I was 32 years old and already had a wife and three sons. Because of that, I never perceived an opportunity to slowly build up a private practice. I had to hit the ground running!
After 9 years of working for various companies around the metroplex, as well as moonlighting with wisdom tooth extractions throughout Texas, I joined Altius in August of 2015.
Altius seemed like a good fit because it had a strong schedule, gave freedom to diagnose and treat as I saw fit, and Dr. Dhir seemed to have a good ethical core.
6 years have proven all of these to be true.
Altius has allowed me to refine my “craft”, expand my scope and provide the best dentistry I can, all while providing for my family.
My favorite part of Altius (besides Dr. Dhir) has been the growth of the company. Altius has evolved since I have joined, constantly striving to be better at everything it does. It’s small enough that the leaders within the company have very direct access and knowledge of the practices, and they are there to listen as well.
Last year, I partnered with Altius; fulfilling a goal of mine to have a vested interest in a practice. Throughout the process, Altius has been there to help guide me when I asked and to efficiently run the day-to-day business operations.
I look forward to growing more with Altius, and giving my patients the best care I can, while still having a lot of time with my family.
