Welcome to the 12th episode of The Story Project Podcast where I get to chat with my friend, Dr. Meghna Dassani! I first met Dr. Dassani in person at the 2018 Delivering WOW Summit in Jamaica and the rest is history.
Born and raised in Mumbai, India near her grandfather’s dental practice, family is incredibly important to Dr. Dassani and influenced how she lives her life - she learned early on that when you say “no” to one thing, you get to say “yes” to something else. Things she finds worth saying “yes” are time with her children, educating dentists on airway health, and carving time for things that bring joy to her life and the lives of others around her.
She learned both life and business skills from her grandparents (and not just how to pull a tooth at the age of 8!) and credits who she is to being so close to the matriarch and patriarch of the family. She absorbed what she could in dentistry and started applying that knowledge to care for patients holistically.
Dr. Meghna Dassani is passionate about promoting healthy sleep through dental practices. She has helped many children and adults improve their sleep, their breathing, and their lives through her Sleep Apnea work and in educating dentists all over the country to do the same. Her books and seminars help parents and practitioners understand the essential roles of the tongue, palate, and jaw in promoting healthy sleep. I’m so excited we got to dive into all things health, dentistry, and priorities.
You can find her driving her kids to tennis or practicing at Dassani Dentistry. Thanks for being on the show, Dr. Dassani! We loved having you!
