The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

After proudly serving in the U.S. Air Force for eight years, Dr Joe Maio was the owner and CEO of the fastest-growing dental organization for nine consecutive years. He built his empire from only six employees to over one hundred across eight practices, and he has utilized his entrepreneurial mindset to develop fourteen companies, earning him numerous accolades. Today Joe joins the show to discuss how best to navigate our way through the current state of dentistry and come out the other side of this pandemic stronger than before.

Despite feeling out of control in the current situation—and possibly even a bit frightened—Joe reminds us that the only way to get through this is to have a positive mindset. Listen in as he shares how to take this opportunity to put a plan in place to better your practice and hire the right people for your business. This is not an episode to be missed, as Joe’s wisdom, transparency, and service to our country is something to inspire us all during these uncertain times.
