Today, for the second time on the show, we welcome Dr. Trevor Nichols of Frost Nichols Orthodontics.
Trevor practices with his long-time mentor, Dr. Stuart Frost. He shares his journey of what’s like working with such a big name in Ortho and arguably the best clinician in the world.
Even though it’s difficult at first for any associate/partner to work alongside their mentor and earn their patients’ trust, Trevor believes that with genuine passion and maximum effort, you’ll successfully chart your own path.
This is evident in his career as he has gone from one level to another.
In this episode, we share some great tips on how to develop a great relationship between an associate/partner and a principal doctor. We look at this relationship from both perspectives and the role each side has to play.
