The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

It’s fun talking to people who have chosen a different path or done things differently within the dental space because there’s always something to learn there. Steven Schluentz is one of those people, and he joins the show today to share insight and tips on sales, as well as emphasize the importance of coaching and the impact it could have on your life and practice.

A thought leader in dentistry and the host of Dental Practice Freedom Radio, Steven opens up about how he was able to shape his life in the way he wanted. You’ll hear about the variety of people and books that have impacted his life and career in a monumental way, gain insight on making important decisions, and discover how to take on new challenges in bite-sized chunks.
