Dentist and practice owner Dr. Alan Mead is undoubtedly one of the major influencers in the dental industry. An active blogger since 2008, he is the man behind and one of the creators of The Dental Hacks Podcast, which has been downloaded over 1 million times. Alan is also the creator of The Alan Mead Experience, a more personal podcast about dentists and the stories they tell.

Thankfully, Alan isn’t afraid to open up about his own story and personal challenges, as well. In this episode, he talks about his struggle with addiction and how it led to his much-needed mindset shift to get him on the road to recovery. He also shares his advice for younger dentists, the importance of following your passion without asking for permission, and much more.
