Before joining or purchasing a practice there are some important questions that need to be asked and answered. On Episode 56, we discuss some of the questions we wish we’d had asked before we started working in or purchasing our practices. We also talk about how to handle situations when a patient talks badly about a previous dentist and much more.
**Note: There is a bit of an audio technical difficulty for the first 5 minutes but clears up after that.**

Even though most dentists are only allowed to treat emergency patients right now, there are still some ways to stay positive and also tackle some necessary projects at the office. We discuss some ways to find positivity during this stressful time, as well as continuing to be productive even when patient treatment is not an option.
