Linda L. Miles, CSP CMC Over the course of five decades in dentistry I have heard hundreds of speakers. A percentage of those held my attention throughout their lecture and taught me more than I could have imagined. Dr. Susan Smallegan Maples is one of them. She is ultra-smart, dedicated and passionate about dentistry and the whole health initiative. Susan is one of those dentists who doesn’t just talk her subject….she LIVES it daily. If you are looking for a forward thinking speaker who inspires and connects with every member of the audience, Susan is it. Besides building a fabulous practice in Michigan, she has built a dream team of coworkers who are as dedicated to her patients, her vision and her success as she is. A gift every dentist wishes for.
