    13/02/2022 Duração: 01h06min

    Hosted by Dr. Sonny Spera Dr. Joanne Block Rief shares her story and how she has built a thriving practice. Auto-Bio:  In 1973 when I was only 13 years old, I spent one afternoon a week helping my father in his dental practice in Annapolis. I saw firsthand how passionate my father was about changing the lives of his patients, many of whom became his friends. This experience sparked my passion for dentistry and helping people with dental disease, leading me to earning my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene in 1982. During my summers in dental hygiene school, I worked for many offices as a dental receptionist and dental assistant, and even worked for a dental staffing agency. I graduated from The University of Maryland School of Dentistry with high honors in 1986 and became the third-generation dentist in my family. I practiced with my father and mother (who was the office manager) for 18 years, commuting from Owings Mills to Annapolis. In 2004, my family and I decided that I needed a change, and I purchased
