Dr. Goolnik is the author of an incredible book titled, Brush. The subtitle is; Proven Strategies to Make You and Your Dental Business Shine. Gary and Dr. Goolnik are going to discuss the contents of the book in detail today in our interview, but before we do that I want to point out an observation about success. It’s apparent to me that one common trait of successful people is that they ‘give back’. They find ways to help those in need. Dr. Goolnik is one of those people. 100% of the profits from the sale of the book, Brush are donated to Dentaid, an organization committed to improving the world’s oral health. Well done, Dr. Goolnik!
