Show Notes

Get into the world of Dr. Mitchell Mactier and follow his journey, week by week, as he creates his start-up: SMYL Dentistry

Mitchell is scheduled to open up his practice in 3 months in Houston, TX.

Listen each week to see the raw truth and the "behind the scenes" details that hardly many talk about publicly when it comes to starting up a practice!

We uncover unexpected struggles he is facing, what "life-saving" practice tips he discovered, how much everything is costing, what equipment/ companies he decides to go with and why, his plans to skyrocket his growth in the community, how all of this is affecting his personal life, and everything in between!

Mitchell may need your help and advice, so please feel free to engage with each episode, share your feedback, and ask questions here:
