Episode : BIG Dental Decisions + Team Impacts

Podcast Description

Dr. Paul Goodman — Dr. Nacho himself — is back on the podcast! He talks with Kiera about the four big decisions dentists make (first job, buying a practice, hiring first associate, and selling practice) and how they impact team members. There’s talk of transitions, having uncomfortable conversations, the normalcy of friction (but not toxicity), and becoming a word ninja.

This episode is all about changing the game of dentistry … for the better.

More on Dr. Goodman

While chief dental resident during his general practice residency and hospital fellowship at Albert Einstein Medical Center, Dr. Goodman received advanced training and also placed and restored 150 dental implants. He has been a faculty member for Hiossen Dental Implant Training Program for the past 10 years and has helped over 100 general dentists place their first dental implants. Additionally, he teaches dental residents at Albert Einstein Medical Center, lecturing to dentists on placing and restoring implants.

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Goodman has been practicing dentistry for over 10 years and works with his brother in two locations in Mercer County, NJ. Dr. Goodman has purchased three dental practices and shares his personal experience with retiring dentists in managing the expectations of their patients and team members during the transition process. He is the founder of Rising Dentists Study Club and Rittenhouse Consulting, LLC – both in Philadelphia.
