"Mind Blowing"

I am a new owner of a pediatric dental practice and found that while I feel really confident about practicing pediatric dentistry, I do not have the same level of confidence when approaching running a small business. I took the UT Executive Management Course hoping that I would gain some more business knowledge and skills, and I was not disappointed!
