The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Today I’m joined by Justin Short and David Maloley, the masterminds behind the book Titans of Dentistry: How the top performers think and act differently. They’re here to share key insights into the dental field and the important lessons they learned as they discovered what went into the success of many of the most notable people in dentistry today.

Listen in to hear Justin and David discuss the process of creating their book, from the vision behind it to the connections it took to make it happen. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what went into putting together this incredible tool, as well as how Justin and David have done things differently in order to achieve so much in their own careers.
