Start Your Dental Practice

Episode 106: HR Fundamentals With Chris Lessard

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)When starting your dental practice, the list of things you “need to do” is virtually endless. You need to hire your first employee. You need to setup your website. You need to find the perfect office location.

And in all the chaos of getting things up and running, many dentists neglect one of the most important components of successful dental practice.

Human Resources.

Which is a huge mistake.

While HR can often be complicated and overwhelming, the truth is, not having the right foundation can really come back to cost you and your practice. There are plenty of things you can put off for later, but HR is not one of them.

Today I’m excited to sit down with Chris Lessard of CEDR HR. Chris is a California barred attorney and knows a thing or two about how to handle HR and successfully grow your practice.

Chris and I met at a CE event a few months back and I just knew I had him on the show. His day to day role involves advising dental practices all across the country about their specific HR needs.

Episode 105: Mastering Dental Insurance 101 with Teresa Duncan

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)Hello ambitious dentists,

Have you ever been to a conference or event and have just one speaker blow you away? Not just because of their knowledge of the subject, but their stage presence as well?

While recently attending a course by my friend Jayme Amos, I had the pleasure of hearing Teresa Duncan take the stage and share everything she knew about dental insurance.

And she was that one “amazing” speaker for me.

As a dental CPA, I’m certainly not an expert when it comes to dental insurance, and I found her speech to be both informative and easy to understand. And I knew I just had to bring her on the show.  

It’s definitely an interview you don’t want to miss.

Episode 104: How Having Emotional Intelligence Can Make You A Better Dentist and Practice Owner

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

Hello, ambitious dentists,

Whether you’re just starting your dental practice career, or have been growing your practice for a while, you probably have experienced the many ups and downs that come with being a practice owner.

And the truth is, it’s not easy.

As we’ve said many times here on SYDP, there are some things dental school just doesn’t teach you… which is why I’m excited to have today’s guest Dr. Shakila Angadi on the show.

Right out of dental school, Dr. Shakila quickly realized that things don’t always go according to plan and today she shares what she has learned.

If you have some spare time while you’re preparing meals or out and about shopping, give the interview a listen.
