Relevant, helpful, concise

I like listening to podcasts on my way to work, and this one has so much relevant information that I often pause it and “ask siri” to remember a piece of information for me. Very specific, relevant, helpful information that I would expect most consultants to charge me to get access to!! LOVE this podcast!!!!

Dr.TCReed ,

Thanks!

Gentlemen,

Your content has been instrumental and foundational in me finally creating an insurance independent platform to take my practice up the ladder! A decade ago, we attempted to exit network participation without a real game plan. News flash...it did not work. Fast forward to 2019, and we now have a fully built and written system that we launched in late 2019. The pinnacle will be the planned exit from Delta in 2021. After acquiring a second practice location last fall, the plan is to implement this strategy once they are fully converted into our overall culture, operating processes, and protocols. We routinely incorporate the podcast content in our growth and development endeavors as well. To anyone browsing podcast land for great dental practice Mgt content, look no further and subscribe! You will likely binge listen once you start!
I look forward to meeting up with you and many other like-minded dental professionals at the One Day MBA Workshop in Austin. Thanks, Dr. Tom Reed
