Dental Master Series

Inherent to the dental profession is the challenge of keeping yourself and your team current with a dizzying array of emerging science, advancing technology, business development and myriad other topics. To address this need, Sunrise Dental Solutions created The Dental Master Series Podcast, hosted by Dr. Matt VanderMolen.

Dr. VanderMolen is a dedicated student of successful business and leadership principles, constantly pursuing new methods that help keep dental practices on the leading edge of profitability. He has been a trusted dentist in Springfield and Central Illinois for well over three decades.

After completing his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Illinois in 1985, Dr. VanderMolen was selected for the Navy’s very prestigious postgraduate program in Advanced Dentistry at Bethesda Naval Hospital, eventually graduating 1st in his class in 1986. After completing a tour of duty in Italy, he was rated as the best Navy dentist throughout Europe. Following his service, he established a private practice in 1990, and now leads a team of 30, including two associate dentists.

Dr. VanderMolen is an outstanding coach and mentor who has dedicated part of his career to helping other dentists reach higher levels of efficiency and productivity.

The Dental Master Series podcast debuted on October 2, 2019, and has since garnered a 5-Star rating. Below are links to the two most recent episodes.
