Episode 79 – Hope & Laughter with Dr. Joe Blalock
“Seven days after I opened the doors on my brand-new scratch start practice, I got the mandate that we couldn’t practice in-person dentistry due to COVID,” says Dr. Joe Blalock. “I had planned for so many contingencies, and I thought, welp, I didn’t plan for that one.”
Grab your earbuds and tune in for the good, the bad, and the unfiltered views on:
- Why dentists are jaded (and how to protect against being jaded)
- Building strong relationships with patients and what matters to you as a dentist
- How to avoid mistakes and being taken advantage of when building a start up
Tune into Dr. Joe with the Life and Dentistry Podcast.
Dr. Joe Blalock is one of the co-hosts and founding fathers of The Life and Dentistry Podcast. He is a 2017 graduate of University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. During his fourth year of dental school he and 5 of his buddies launched their own podcast called The Life and Dentistry Podcast to talk about the progress of a dental student to a dentist and share the journey along the way. The podcast got off to a quick start and they had our first annual Life and Dentistry Conference while they were still fourth year dental students. Three years later, Joe has gone from a dental student, to an associate, to now owning an office and doing a start up in Lenoir City, TN. His podcast is still going strong and they are planning their 4th conference. They love sharing their stories with other dentists. It is their goal to help others by sharing their experiences with them.
