December 7, 2017 Smileandco No comments exist


Welcome to episode 21 of The Making of SMILE & CO. This episode is a special episode because we have our very first guest from our Facebook Group: The Making of a Dental Start-Up…. Trent McCord! Trent is about a year and a half into his brand new practice and how it has been going for him (spoiler… it’s been pretty successful).


He shares with us many things he went through in the before phases and the first year of opening his dental practice. Trent has been extremely helpful in our group and we are so happy to be interviewing him and seeing what obstacles he went through and is still going through. We also talk about what moments made every stressor worth it for him.
