099 Building Seven-Figure Dental Businesses with Holly

Millennial Dentist Podcast

Today we have Holly, who grew up in dentistry and the airline industry inside the state of Tennessee. As a ramp rat for almost five years, she has flown all over the country. When she was 18, she moved to Charlotte to instruct and teach other US Air employees. She was working too many hours and having a job with more stability, she decided to get into working for a local dental practice.

Holly decided to go to school to become a dental assistant. After graduating, the practice she worked for broke up on bad terms and stayed with one of the partners. She started to learn the ins and outs of dentistry from the business side at her new practice.

Holly learned under dentistry’s “big five” and practice cosmetic dentistry. Her boss, Ross, put her through more dental training, and she ended up being a dental speaker. Traveling around the country, speaking, and training other dentists, opened her eyes to the potential and opportunities.

After bringing her last company to $5 million, she started to get the itch to build her own practice. She worked 100 hour work weeks, along with her brother, who had a degree in marketing, to develop her own business training doctors and dentists.

With so many people afraid to fail, Holly decided to learn to fail and pick herself up and learn from her mistakes. A multitude of dentists isn’t OK with coaching; as Holly says, “When they hear about coaching, they think they are in trouble.” Her clientele is someone who is going to bet on themself to win. She puts herself in a space where she gets her clients’ ideas and takes them into her work.

Dentistry is changing. Technology, education, and resources are closer to our fingertips now more than ever! Are you ready to learn what millennial dentists are doing to exceed patient expectations, enjoy dentistry more and take vacations and how this generation can join up with the previous generation to make for an unstoppable dental team? Wait no longer! Listen in and find out how to push your lifestyle to the next level.
