Dr. Eric Roman 

Dr Eric J Roman started his professional journey as a dentist but soon became the CEO of several fast-growing, multi-location dental groups that generated over $200m in care during his leadership.   Despite the successes, the journey was never easy and when he finally paused to reflect, he realized he had failed his wife, his family, and himself by making money and ego his core validations and focus.  Eric exited the company he founded to pursue a more balanced life, and he did this through coaching and thought leadership, where he has become one of the dental industry’s most esteemed experts on team dynamics and associate dentist development, coaching a community of more than $3B in annual revenue via the Dentist Entrepreneur Organization.   Sadly, Eric watched as others had a similar experience to his own:  A highly successful business coupled with a less-than-satisfactory life.   What emerged was a commitment to pivot again and guide people towards personal lives that were even more successful than their professional ventures.  With his team, he has developed the 1Life System, an operating system for personal and family lives that consistently and sequentially leads participants toward joy, authenticity, and life satisfaction…without sacrificing professional success. www.DrEricJRoman.com and 1LifeCircle.com
