The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

After a painful (and potentially deadly) experience made him decide he wanted to be a dentist, Dr. Chris Hoffpauir went to dental school and opened up his own practice. He joins the show today to share his journey into the field and some great insight into the importance of finding community, managing your thinking, and investing wisely.

Listen in as Chris explains why we should all be mindful of the people we spend time with, as well as the importance of putting your best foot forward. He also opens up about his thoughts on selling and building practices in a way that actually brings you more value, what is missing in dentistry today, and what a true leader looks like.
