In episode 245 of Financially Simple, Justin talks to Jon and Wesley, The Dental Guys, about closing down a dental business while taking care of their teams.

The current COVID-19 crisis is forcing the hand of many businesses, both small and large, to close and lay-off staff, or where possible pivot into other areas. Justin, Jon, and Wesley discuss how the pandemic has affected their dental practices, and how they have managed the closures and supported their teams.
