Episode : #344: How to Maintain a Healthy Associate/Owner Relationship

Podcast Description

Dr. Sarah Zeh, an associate dentist out of Austin, Texas, is Kiera’s guest for this podcast episode, and she’s here to share tips on how to keep things healthy between associates and owners in the practice. For context, Dr. Zeh is in her third associateship, so she has some good experience to share.

Kiera and Dr. Zeh chat about what makes an amazing owner — trusting an associate before they even come on board and setting time to communicate one-on-one — and what she looks for when seeking out practices to join.
