069: Dr. Heimir Hallgrímsson – Dentist, National Hero, Professional Coach
Welcome to another episode of The Dentalpreneur Podcast. Joining us today is Dr. Heimir Hallgrímsson.
Dr. Hallgrímsson is a general dentist from Iceland and the Head Coach for the Iceland National Soccer Team. Most recently the Iceland Soccer Team made worldwide headlines by beating England in Euro 2016. What has become a defining moment for the entire country of Iceland will also be remembered by the rest of the world as a historic moment in soccer. In addition to leading his national soccer team to victory, Dr. Hallgrímsson operates a small dental clinic on the island of Vestmannaeyjar in Iceland. Heimir and I discuss what has been an almost simultaneous journey for him of becoming a dentist and a soccer coach. He shares how practicing dentistry and being involved with soccer have just naturally grown to complement each other in his life. Heimir’s insight on coaching, soccer and dentistry is educated, thoughtful and full of great value to life in general.
All of that and more on today’s episode of The Dentalpreneur.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- How the soccer team’s success has turned the team into living legends in their home country
- How instant fame has changed the lives of the Icelandic footballers
