Some major things happened on tonight's podcast. Our guest was none other than Jim Perry, the COO and VP of Affordable Dentures and Implants— plus a colleague of Justin's. He shared plenty of his insight and business acumen— how it relates to dentistry and how dental schools just do not prepare their future doctors properly. A bit of a bombshell was dropped when his departure from ADI was brought up. Looks like he's going to dental school!
From Affordable Dentures and Implants:
Since joining Affordable Care in 2001 as director of professional development, James Perry was promoted to vice president of dental placement and, subsequently, to vice president of practice operations before being named chief operating officer. Mr. Perry was responsible for conceptualizing and forming the COO Study Club among a group of his colleagues in the Association of Dental Support Organizations. Prior to Affordable Care, he worked in the executive search industry for a subsidiary of publicly traded company. Mr. Perry holds a bachelor’s degree from North Carolina State University and an M.B.A from Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina. He is married with three daughters.
