What it means to have a female owned business of over 30 years

"I'm very proud of establishing this dental office over 30 years ago. As a female, starting my business in the 90s was challenging. It was a different world, but even still, I really felt like the community embraced me. Our clientele grew steadily from the start," explains Dr. Minadeo-Fox.
