The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

I love talking to people in dentistry who didn’t start out in the industry, and my guest today is one of those people. Currently the CEO and co-founder of Community Dental Partners, Senior Faculty at the Dentist Entrepreneur Organization, and host of the DSO Secrets podcast, Emmet Scott is at the forefront of what dental practices should look like. He joins the show today to share his insights on why it’s so important for dentists to embrace entrepreneurship, as well as what we need to do to scale—especially at a time like this.

Listen in as we discuss what makes a true entrepreneur and how that applies to dentistry. You’ll discover what we can learn from the past about how to navigate a crisis, how to learn from other businesses that have figured it out, and the secret to doing DSO the right way.
