Everyday Practices Dental Podcast

Sep 25, 2019

“Dr. Dave really helped me get my act together,” says co-host Dr. Chad Johnson of today’s guest Dr. David Barnes.  A mentor of Chad’s since dental school, Dr. Barnes helped Chad focus his energy into productive systems and practices. Now retired after a 25-year career in family dentistry in rural Iowa, Dr. Barnes has built mentoring relationships with several dentists and maintains frequent contact with about a dozen young dentists as their mentor, listener, and friend. Today, Dr. Barnes, along with Vicki and Chad, discuss:

  • The benefits of being mentored and coached (harnessing and focusing your horsepower)
  • The importance of guiding principles and delegation
  • Having an attitude of “I don’t know everything, but I want to learn and listen”
