The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan are joined by Dr. Dawn Kulongowski, Dr. Melissa Zettler and coach/guru/rock star Suzanne Robinson to help manage conflicts in the dental office!

Jason and Alan are both confirmed avoiders of conflict. So we brought in the "A-team" to help us understand how to manage it! All dentists offices have to deal with confrontations. Whether it's between patients and team members or within the dental team, humans are always humans! How can we be better at dealing with it? This Brain Trust will bring you a long way to understanding your strengths and weaknesses and most importantly help you learn to be a better leader!
