AUDIO - DUwHF #426 - Cyndi Blalock
Originally from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Dr. Blalock got her start in dentistry when she worked as a dental assistant for a pediatric office. She attended UMKC and graduated in 2011. She returned to her hometown to join a group practice with 3 other doctors that she had known for many years. After 6 months, tensions were rising between the partners and Cyndi was doing a lot of sitting around because two of the partners were pulling seniority over her big cases. So, she found a job in public health in Jefferson City. Shortly after she left, one of the partners left the practice and the lawsuits flew. She was glad to get out when she did! She had a 3 year 30 mile no compete clause in her contract and was unable to work near her hometown. She worked in public health, as an associate, and as a locum tenens dentist for the next few years. After meeting her husband, she moved to St. Louis where she bought her own practice in March 2014. Her husband is a chiropractor and also a business owner.
