Dr. Sullivan and I are catching up on life after a fun-filled summer. We’ve got to get back into the swing-of-things, and we kick off this episode with Dr. Sullivan as he talks about what it was like coming out of dental school and working in his dad’s practice. He also tells us about how his experience has changed his perspective in his dental practice journey.
We talk about how maturity has played a role in Dr. Sullivan’s practice: how to work with team members and how to run a business.
