The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Marilee Sears started working in her father’s dental office when she was just 12 years old, allowing her to see the business side of dentistry and how to be a great dental hygienist. Today she joins the show to discuss the family crisis that pushed her to want to positively impact people’s lives and help them reach a place where they no longer have to work extreme hours to make a living wage.

Listen as Marilee explains why working hard does not necessarily mean financial success, as well as the steps she is taking to help dentists live the life they want. You will learn how to build a practice that serves your goals, the importance of being intentional with your life, and more.
