Welcome to back to the Shared Practices Podcast! This week we have an interview with Matt Ford. He was a classmate with Richard at Midwestern. Matt and Richard talk about Matt's journey from starting at a corporate practice all the way through to ownership. Matt speaks about things that aren't heard from many other dentists about working in corporate offices and how those things motivated him to want to become an owner. Matt speaks candid about how he might not have actually liked the clinical side of dentistry. They then switch gears and talk about ownership and how to understand the numbers. Matt offers to look at practice numbers for you and to speak about them with our listeners! Check for his email below if you would like to reach out to him.

 

Sit back and listen to this great interview!

Welcome to back to the Shared Practices Podcast! This week our guest is Dr. Dawn Baker. Dawn is a practicing dentist in Gahanna, Ohio. In this episode Dawn brings a different perspective to practice ownership and dentistry. Dawn worked as a dental assistant before dental school and discussed her perspective throughout school, as an associate, and eventually ownership. Dawn talks about her journey as a practice owner during her “jumpstart” practice with only 150 existing patients and dental chairs from the 1950s! She also talks about her challenges with hiring and firing as the owner and leader of the office. Dawn recommended a non-dental CE for gaining leadership skills: Next Level Trainings (link below). This course really opened Dawn’s eyes to the emotional intelligence that comes being a leader. This episode is filled with great insight! Thanks for listening to this week’s episode of the Shared Practices Podcast!
