“You’re in a transition, and then you're moving towards a transformation. When you get to that transformation, you're in another transition,” guest Dr. Kevin Reed explains. A second-generation dentist, Dr. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge about the dental industry and life. Today, Dr. Kevin shares his best philosophies for thriving through inevitable transition periods.

Over his forty-year career, Dr. Kevin has seen the dental industry adapt in many ways, from technology to people. Although change can create feelings of fear or uncertainty, Dr. Kevin urges listeners to allow themselves and their practices to transform. This process may not be smooth, but if you make positive steps, you can succeed in any area of life long term.

No matter the industry, expect many personal and professional transitions. Learn more about the changes in dentistry, embracing imperfections, and how intuition formulates action.
