Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Matt Geller. Matt joins me back on the show today to talk about a variety of topics as it relates to staffing an office in the wake of the COVID-19. We talk about areas that practice owners should be focusing on now as well as some of the top items (personally and professionally, financially and otherwise) that ODs should be maximizing in this time of uncertainty. We emphasize the importance of cash, what someone looking for an associate position should do to stand out from the crowd, especially given the influx of talent that the marketplace is going to experience in the wake of all the temporary practice shutdowns. We also discuss the opportunity that telehealth will present to ODs in the future, even after we get back to a “new normal” after the temporary shutdowns. We wrap up the conversation talking about how to opportunistically look at this time as being a good time to “cautiously proceed” with either a cold open or purchase of a practice and also sharing more details on the upcoming virtual career fair that Matt and the rest of the team at Covalent Careers are holding in April.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Matt Geller.
