Highly recommended

I found this podcast several months ago and have found it extremely helpful. I’ve been in the same practice for 15 years and have found myself overrun with the chaos that comes along with running a large practice. This podcast has given me a lot of concrete action items that are helping me to continue to grow my practice while seeing less patients per day. Thank you for doing this podcast. I am very grateful to have found this information.

Simply the best

TBone’s podcast and 3D Dentists have changed our practice for the better! We have grown so much as a team and a practice since Dr. Allie and Adam took the Masterminds course. We continue to implement and improve the fundamentals, and when we veer from them, we notice a difference immediately! Not only has the podcast and 3D Dentists changed our practice, but it has changed our lives both professionally and personally. Thank you to the entire 3D Dentists team!
