29. Define your practice roadmap and reach the destination you envision

With Dr. Richard Low

In this episode, we're going to share their journeys so you don't have to learn those same lessons the hard way.

Meet our guest

Dr. Richard Low is CEO at Shared Practices, a consulting firm that helps dentists nationwide buy and scale their practices through coaching, from single-doctor locations to multi-doctor large practices.


Dr. Low started Shared Practices as a podcast to help young dentists buy and run their own successful practices, and it quickly became the No. 1-rated dental podcast. And in 2021, Shared Practices Group was founded as the fastest-growing implant group in the nation, with 23 locations and another 15 planned by the end of 2023.
