We are honored to share our episode with Dr. Sampada Deshpande, who recently won the ADA 10 Under 10 Award: an award honoring dentistry’s rising stars who are making an impact on the profession less than 10 years after graduating from dental school. We discuss her path in founding the New Dentist Business Club; the power of blogging and sharing your true self in building a patient following; how she is learning to accept recognition and success; and the power of pivoting and redefining goals. One thing we love about Sampada is her passion for learning and personal growth, and how there is a lesson in everything we do and everyone we meet in life. Listen closely for some 🔥 book recommendations.
