Episode 1: Dr. Glenn Vo- The Why

Doctor Entrepreneur Podcast

Welcome to The Doctor Entrepreneur Podcast. My name is Dr. Glenn Vo. The reason I desired to begin this podcast was because of a desire to build a connection. I want to bring you guests that inspire you and teach you how to become better professionals and people.  As a practicing dentist, I desired to help my fellow dental professionals improve their practices. I started a group called Nifty Thrifty Dentists that aims to help dentists save money in their business. We have over 23,000 members as well as a website and podcast. I also own equity in multiple dental businesses and speak at many events on topics related to overhead management. To reach more people and build greater connections, I started a group called Healthcare Entrepreneurs. This group is focused on the unique abilities and strengths we as healthcare professionals have to create side gigs and other revenue sources.  In addition, I’ve written a best-selling book. 2612 Cherryhill Lane, a fiction novel. This was a long term goal I have had and am excited to see it come to fruition. What is a productivity tip? What is a tool that they use? What is their favorite book and why? I’m also going to ask about their past. First off, what was your biggest mistake, and why? The final question will be: what advice would you give to your younger self? The last section of the podcast will be a deconstruction of their side hustle. This is to learn how they created their business and give you ideas to help you as well. I am so glad you have decided to join us, and know that these innovative and inspiring speakers will make an impact on you. My hope is that you will be able to pay it forward to another aspiring entrepreneur in the future.

Running the Business VS. Building the Culture with Glenn Vo

The Dental Practice Heroes Podcast

Today we are talking with Dr. Glenn Vo: a Texas native, private practicing dentist, a published novelist with his new book 2612 Cherry Lane, and founder of the Nifty Thrifty Dentist group and podcast.  Glenn is a 3-day practicing dentist at his private practice. Some Talking Points (5:00) – Not everyone should own a practice, and there is no one right way. What to do while you are associating. (7:20) – The power of hiring a coach and finding mentors. (11:15) – One way to get your team to buy into your practice.  Vision boards and understanding the hopes and dreams of everyone on the team.  Vision board: -Poster board with different goals -Have to cut pictures out and put on your board -One meeting a year, everyone explains their board to the team -All on the wall in the break room – they need to see it (17:30) – Taking the team on trips for team building and improving the practice.  You can take a trip on a budget if you need, but the ROI is always worth it. (24:05) – Glenn talks about writing his Novel,  2612 Cherry Lane. Life is short, go for your goals! (29:17) – Glenn’s Little System Segment – How they use the morning huddle and schedule print outs to get people to schedule unscheduled treatment. (32:22) Get Real Segment – Glenn discusses dealing with team members and carving out time to work on his team.  There just isn’t enough time it seems but it is so important.  How more productive you get when you take a day off to work on your business. If Glenn could go back, he would have spent more time working on his practices instead of practicing dentistry the whole time and trying to do everything.  Glenn’s valuable business lesson he learned was not carving out the team to meet with his team and communicate and plan.

The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon Recommend a CE. Western Surgical and Sedation to learn how to do 3rd molar extractions Share a dental analogy.  Comparing teeth to tires on a car based on how people drive.  Some people drive really fast and wear them out quicker, and some people take it easy and wear them slower.  Everyone is different.  It depends on how you treat your teeth.  What happens when you don’t take care of your tires? Give 3 pieces of advice for a new graduate. 1 – Money talks.  Look at the bottom line. Be careful of reps who are trying to sell you things. 2 – Numbers don’t lie.  If you aren’t getting ROI, stop that. 3-  Is it good for the practice?  No Matter what you do,  if you ask yourself this thing,  you will always be steered in the right direction. ---------------------------------- If you are ready to take your practice to the next level, Dental Business Training by Dr. Paul Etchison can be found at Dental Business Mentor.
