146. Mindset and Environment for Onboarding New Dental Associate – Millennial Dentist Podcast

In this episode of the Millennial Dentist Podcast, I talk about the mindset we must have when we are onboarding a new dental associate. We are experiencing a change with our new associate, and this episode is to share the mentality and team culture we have to make this transition successful. In creating an environment, it is important to create a positive space where it is okay to fail. When it is our first time, we tend to be scared to do such procedures because what if we break the equipment? But having a team and a leader dentist who is willing to mentor you throughout will help you reach success.

Who is Dr. Sully Sullivan?

Dr. Sully is a fourth-generation dentist from Nashville, Tn. After receiving his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Tennessee, he moved back to Nashville to practice with his father. By continuing to invest in his education through adult orthodontics, soft tissue grafting, dental implants, third molar extractions, and obstructive sleep apnea, he helped double his practice in just 24 months. 

As a millennial, he truly believes in working smarter not harder, which has led him to utilize technology to not only deliver better patient care but more efficient care. Dr. Sullivan regularly uses CEREC, 3D imaging with Galileos, 3D printing, and multiple lasers. In addition to his practice, he started the Millennial Dentist Podcast in February of 2017 to help push his fellow colleagues to take their dental careers to the next level. Dr. Sully lectures around the country on cone beam technology, cad/cam dentistry, obstructive sleep apnea, and practice management. He is also an ambassador for the 3D-Dentist teaching facility in Raleigh, NC.
