Kiera is joined by fellow DAT consultant, Tiffanie Trader, and Dr. Sean O’Grady in this episode. Dr. O’Grady started a practice in 2019, and shares his journey through that practice ownership. He talks with Kiera and Tiffanie about trials faced as an urban dental practice, victories had (including up 90% in collections over two months), and how the Dental A-Team played a role.
From a consultant’s point of view, Tiffanie shares the positives Dr. O’Grady has had, including:
Prepared and growth-oriented
Doesn’t jump and leap without knowing what result should be
Waited to have the DAT come aboard until he had hired a team that was committed
Join this trio as they talk the highs and lows of starting a new practice during Covid-19! Interested in having your own success story? Visit www.TheDentalATeam.com to start with us!
