Ep 2

In this alliterative episode Kevin brings up a recent court case brought against a dental office for not providing proper PPE. It was a matter of time before the cases started to show up. What could this mean for future litigation? Teresa is concerned about city flight and what that does to urban practices. How do you build up your numbers when your patients don’t work or live near your office? These are definitely interesting times.
