The Fee for Service Dentist Podcast

Welcome to the Fee for Service Dentist Podcast!

Apr 25, 2021

Dr. Alan Stern and Dr. Spera sit down to discuss finding true success through FFS Dentistry and life in general. A personal note from Dr. Stern:


My name is Alan Stern.  I  am a practicing dentist and run a coaching business called Better Richer Stronger.

I work with dentists who want to create a workplace that is productive & profitable and a life that is rewarding and meaningful.  As a speaker, I conduct presentations for dental groups that redefine what it means to build a better team and rekindle their passion for what matters.

In fact, I wrote the book, Enjoy the Ride for those who want to get out from the day to day grind and take charge of their roadmap to a better life.

As a result of my work, people often share they have more focus, more energy, more momentum and get the results they no longer thought were possible.

On a personal note, my wife Fran and I recommitted to living a healthy life and I even held a plank for ten and one half minutes on my 66th birthday!
