The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

In this episode, I’m going to share the story of two people who decided to change their “next” in their lives. Dr. Bob Dubanski and Dr. Gertrude Lee join me today to share how they transitioned out of dentistry after 35 years of practicing together. They also offer great insight into burnout, hard decisions, transitions, and more.

Listen in to hear how they started to make the decision to transition out of clinical dentistry and what helped them plan and execute the process. You will learn what their new plan is and the insight they gained along the way. They also share important points in their transition, like finding community and building confidence, as well as how they ultimately found the right direction with the help of Freedom Founders.
