Patients Don’t Care How Much You Know Until They Know How Much You Care, with Dr. Mike Masella

On this episode of the Dental Up Podcast, we welcome Dr. Mike Masella! Dr. Mike graduated from UMDNJ (now Rutgers University) dental school in 2005, where he met his wife, oral surgeon Lindsay Scoggins, DMD. They have two young boys, Tyler and Shane.
