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

Nov 18, 2020

I’m always interested in how offices are handling the end of the year, COVID and other issues. Carrie Webber is the CEO of Jameson Management (one of the largest dental consulting firms in the country) and shared how Jameson offices are handling these situations. We talked about how her coaches had to switch into emergency mode while also trying to stay ahead of emerging problems. Leadership is a recurring theme for 2020 since so much crisis management was needed. Carrie and I round out the conversation with a very candid talk about how to help your colleagues that are not mentally in a good place.
