Donald K. Ruddell, DDS

I joined the California Dentists’ Guild to help me watch out for my financial and retirement interests. Through education at its annual meetings, the Guild has taught me a great deal with regard to investment strategy for retirement. I have seen first-hand how costs are continually monitored and minimized. We dentists in California are so fortunate to have this nearly 50-year old institution that I am surprised more states have not adopted a similar organization.

If you are a licensed dentist in California and you want your retirement nest egg to grow with minimal costs, then you should join the California Dentists’ Guild. The education you receive at its annual meetings, with the camaraderie of your peers, and the personal service you receive from the Guild staff are all icing-on-a well-conceived-cake!
