    What it means to be a woman in today’s veterinary industry, with Sarah Baker, DVM

    With women now constituting more than 80% of veterinary industry professionals, the industry is radically different from last generation's status quo.
    While there are more opportunities for women than ever before, female representation among hospital owners and executives still lags behind the curve.
    In this episode, we're talking to Dr. Sarah Baker, DVM and owner of Lane Veterinary in the Chicagoland area, to learn about her journey to hospital ownership.
    She recently opened her animal hospital and proudly obtained the Fear Free Certification and American Animal Hospital Association accreditation within months of opening her doors. She currently holds a seat on the board of directors at the Hinsdale Humane Society, frequently fosters pets, and feels passionately about supporting animal rescues.
    She'll offer advice for aspiring animal hospital owners and explain:

    How she arrived at the decision to pursue a career in veterinary science and open a hospital

    How to build a supportive team and delegate tasks to set your hospital up for success

    Why work-life balance is a two-way street that can help employees AND hospital owners thrive

    Why qualities like empathy position women as strong business owners and leaders

    Why there is a need for more female representation in leadership positions in the veterinary industry

    Taking the unknown out of hiring a healthcare attorney, with Matt LaMaster

    Let's be honest. It’s not every day that you have to hire an attorney.
    It can be an intimidating process filled with new jargon, details, and processes to which you may have never been exposed, and it's also super important to get it right.
    In this episode, we're speaking with Matt LaMaster, a Michigan-based healthcare attorney, to discuss the importance of hiring an industry-specific attorney and the specific advantages for dentists and veterinarians.
    Prior to forming LaMaster Law, Matt spent a major part of his career providing services as corporate counsel for a multi-location dental practice. He negotiated, structured, and implemented multiple acquisitions and mergers, and negotiated employment contracts for associate dentists during his career as corporate counsel.

    We'll discuss:

    Why hiring an industry-specific attorney is crucial for dentists and veterinarians

    How healthcare attorneys can assist with important processes like acquisitions, lease negotiations, real estate transactions, and associate agreements

    Why it's important to start looking for an attorney early on

    Harnessing the power of data to take your practice to new heights, with Shayne Harris and Nate Woudstra

    Marketing is one of those things that's easy to take for granted; that is, until you experience great marketing, and then it's hard to live without it.
    But, in 2024, marketing is more than just mailers, social media, or ad buys. It can be all those things and more or — none of them.
    Most importantly, though, savvy marketing is about gleaning pivotal insights from real-time data about your customers and using those insights to drive your marketing strategy.
    In this episode, we're talking with Shayne Harris and Nate Woudstra from EOS Healthcare Marketing, a premier nationally-renowned healthcare marketing agency.
    Shayne is the founder and CEO and opened the full-service marketing firm in 2001. Nate joined the team in 2016.
    Together, they'll tell us:

    What sort of data healthcare providers need to consider when they're thinking about launching, acquiring, or expanding a practice

    Why census data isn't detailed enough to provide critical insights

    How leveraging data can impact a practice's life cycle

    How to use real-time data to drive a practice marketing strategy

    What some of the must-haves are for marketing a practice on a smaller budget

    Managing your dental supply inventory like a pro, with Jordyn Levitas

    Managing your dental supply inventory like a pro, with Jordyn Levitas

    Nothing moves through a dental office faster than supplies.
    Managing inventory is a huge job with major impacts on the bottom line.
    If something runs out — work in the practice could grind to a halt.
    Far too often; however, the inventory management system is held together by one person, a ton of Post-It notes, and some phone numbers in a smartphone. Albeit to say it's less than ideal and could leave you exposed.
    In this episode, we're talking to Jordyn Levitas from Torch Dental, an all-in-one supply ordering platform where dental offices can discover, research, order supplies, and pay for everything all in one place.
    When Jordyn started with Torch Dental five years ago, they were fewer than 10 people in a WeWork space in New York City. Today, they have more than 100 employees across the country helping dentists take control of their practices, operations and supply ordering so they can focus on what matters most: their patients. 
    We'll discuss:

    The different ways many practices manage their supply inventory

    How to benchmark and optimize your inventory spending

    How to spot the best supply discounts from manufacturers

    How practice owners should delegate supply management

    Whether it's worth it to try and negotiate prices with manufacturers

    David Harris has one of the most interesting jobs in dentistry.
