About the Author

Sami Bahri, DDS
Dr. Bahri runs a private dental practice in Jacksonville, Florida that he started in 1990 after years working in the teaching, administrative, and private practice fields.

In 1996, Dr. Bahri read Lean Thinking by James Womack and Daniel Jones, and started implementing lean management principles in his dental office. He successfully reorganized his work and practice around the goal of "one-patient flow."
