The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Get the latest insights on passive real estate, dentist retirement plans, and more here.Today Bruce Baird and David Porritt join me in a conversation focused on the current climate of the dentistry industry and the many options for practice growth and transition. They are truly “boots on the ground” when it comes to this, so don’t miss out on their insight into what the consolidation industry looks like and how doctors can use their leverage to take advantage of what’s going on in this marketplace.
