Quotes in This Episode

“It’s been a very interesting partnership in marrying the dentistry to the communications.” —Dr. Grace Yum

“I’ve always been very interested in technology and different modes of communicating, and so for me, being a business owner, I’ve noticed that a lot of my–being a pediatric dentist–a lot of my moms are younger and younger […] and every resource for them is online.” —Dr. Grace Yum

“If you’re on social media, everything is fast in furious! You have information at your fingertips […] and if you don’t grab that opportunity to respond, you lose that opportunity.” —Dr. Grace Yum

“Work-life-balance, I think everyone struggles with that, especially if you’re a parent and you’re working.” —Dr. Grace Yum

“Having an open channel of communication with your team is so vital […] I always explain to them the analogy of a professional […] football team. You know, all players need to know what’s going on, all players need to know how to communicate with one another, and if you don’t you’re never going to win the Super Bowl.” —Dr. Grace Yum
