#17 - Strategy and Support for Success with Dr. Grace Yum
Show Notes

Today’s guest is someone every mommy would look up to. She’s not only a successful pediatric dentist, but she’s also an amazing business owner, podcast host, and of course, a great mommy to two kids. I would’ve loved to go on and on with her on this interview, but time was very limited. Despite that, Dr. Yum shared a ton of wisdom and her passion and dedication for what she does shines ever so brightly.

All about Dr. Grace Yum:
She is a mother and a certified pediatric dentist, a certification achieved by only 5% of all dentists in the U.S.  The founder and practice owner of Yummy Dental & Orthodontics for Kids, with two locations, she is also the founder and CEO of Mommy Dentists in Business. While on a trip with her husband, she noticed how lawyers connected and networked with one another and felt that dentistry was missing that component of comradery. That was when Mommy Dentists in Business was born. Also, the Facebook group was a way to connect dentists from all over the world, especially dentists like herself, moms that are business owners. In addition to managing the MDIB community, Dr. Yum hosts her own podcast, Mommy Dentists in Business Podcast.
