The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

In this episode, we are joined by a third-generation dentist who has worked tirelessly to change the way patients experience dental care. After inheriting Spodak Dental Group in 2006, Dr. Craig Spodak immediately began to develop a new vision and has successfully created a modern practice that delivers comprehensive dental care.

Co-founder of the All-Star Smiles Foundation, Craig is a pioneer for eradicating childhood tooth decay. He was featured on the February 2017 cover of The Progressive Dentist magazine and named the 2012 Business Person of the Year by the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. He was also featured in Tony Robbins’ book, Unshakeable: Your Guide to Financial Freedom.
