In this episode, I got the awesome opportunity to spend time with a 30 year Dentistry vet, Lois Banta.
Lois shared her story as well as how she came to become the CEO/Owner of the Speaking Consulting Network. We talked about both her consulting company, Banta Consulting, inc and how she is helping dental teams as well as the invaluable experiences that members of SCN receive.
We also talked about the growing trend of collaboration that is going on in the industry and the positive impact it is having on everybody that is part of Dentistry. Stick around to the end to learn some fun things about her that you may not know. Thanks for sharing Lois!
