In this episode, I get to connect with Dr. Summer Kassmel, and we really dig into mindset and what drives her in dentistry. You will get an awesome inside look into her career and the valuable tools she provides to help other dentists succeed within their practices.

Listen in to hear how Summer encountered a debilitating issue that could have ended her career but ended up pushing her into growth—both in her practice and in her life.
