Dugoni School of Dentistry, completed a GPR at USC and then practiced dentistry in San Diego for 19 years. His personal investment success allowed him to retire from dentistry at the age of 43. He went on to be Treasurer of the National Academy of General Dentistry, where he dramatically turned around the fortunes of the AGD portfolio, increasing the Academy’s reserves from $2.2 million to $6.4 million in two years, ultimately putting the AGD in the position of purchasing its’ own building in downtown Chicago.
