650: Growth and Goodwill Part 1
My guest today is a practicing dentist in Vancouver, Washington. After associating in Denver for about five years, he jumped onboard with Comfort Dental and opened shop. He experienced rapid growth and opened a second practice. Now, both practices are collecting over 2M.
Satisfied with his dental career, Dr. Smith has moved into the non-profit space with the Drilled Podcast Network. Through the podcast, a full mouth rehab is given away through a nomination process every six months. On top of that, they are giving out $500 of dental care to a patient in need with every weekly episode that is released.
During our conversation, we cover:
- Why he chose a franchise model over a standalone scratch start
- A deep dive on Comfort Dental
- The difference between a franchise model, a consultant, and a DSO
