Teresa Duncan explores the dental business from behind-the-scenes of the industry to tackling management and business issues in the office.

Jun 30, 2021

“Disruption offers opportunity” - wise words from my guest Lisa Copeland. We talk about being brave, encouraging and firm in our team interactions. Each position and age group in our office has its own communication styles. The last year brought to light issues that should be addressed before they can cause lasting damage to your team. Topics like bullying, burnout and generational behavior are addressed. Hope it’s helpful!
