Dr. Anonymous

This is one of the strangest episodes in the history of The Dental Practice Fixers. A dentist asks a question about his team and then appears as “Dr. Anonymous” to discuss it. Just how far can a dentist go to foster a positive relationship with their staff? Let’s find out!

Then, we do some secret shopper calls posing as a new patient who has some questions about x-rays. Do you think they offered an appointment? Do you think they did ANYTHING right? Listen to find out!

If you have a question for “The Fixers,” please email us at podcast@madow.com. We’d love to hear from you!
