JackFraser ,

Great podcast, poor sound quality

Lots of super hints and tips for running a practice but the sound quality is poor. Feels like you are in a cold empty room with the interview!

anniebee69 ,

Essential listening for anyone in the dental industry

Super useful advice on topics that are all to do with the business side of dentistry. The team at Practice Plan have excelled with this!
