It was a privilege to get to spend some time with Peyman’s good buddy Dr. Matt Koepke. Dr. Koepke is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in West Virgina. You will find that in listening to the interview with Dr. Koepke that at first he may seem like your typical millennial that graduates dental school with lots of loans and then tries to figure out what to do next…guess again! He just got back a couple months ago from a trip of a lifetime taking him around the world! Capping it off with spending 2 months in Australia where he planned his start up Oral Surgery office, Appalachian Oral Surgery Center.
In this one of kind episode we see what confidence, drive, and determination can really do. Dr. Koepke has not only defied expectations but also the norm! He has taken an out of the box approach to putting emphasis on happiness, helping others, and providing top notch patient care. Best part about the podcast is he is completely open and honest about his debt load, his experience with a start up, and how he got to where he is.
And just when I thought I had finally figured this guy out he lets us inside another passion of his, medical ethics. Dr. Koepke made some great points on how us as dentists and other medical professionals have fallen off the wagon in giving and maintaining the best possible ethical care for our patients. In his brand new book, “Ethics under the Knife: Patient Care and Disservice in the Medical Industry” he tackles these questions head on.
