The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Andre Shirdan got into dentistry in a less conventional way, and he has made a mark on dentistry that is even more unconventional. Not afraid to do things differently in order to take practices to the next level, Andre has created real transformations in many practices over the years, and he joins the show today to share the insight he has gained along the way.

Listen in as he explains what it means to be a “crew,” as well as how to develop and build a strong dental team that works. He breaks down leadership, the importance of having a strong practice philosophy of care, and more.
