The Dental Hacks Podcast

In today's episode we continue our discussion with dental coach/consultant/practice owner/podcaster Gary Takacs! Gary talks about why it is so hard to keep new and beneficial changes going in your office from the voice of experience! He's both a consultant helping with the changes and a practice owner dealing with similar difficulties in his own practice! Be sure to catch Gary's podcast, "The Thriving Dentist Show!"

The Brain Trust continues our  discussion about practice systems. Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Frank Clayton, Dr. Melissa Zettler and Dr. Brent Young do a little complaining, a little laughing and a little bit of inventing! Toward the end of our segment we invent a potentially cool way to make small changes in your office and coin the term "microconsulting."

In today's episode we talk with fellow podcaster and practice management coach/consultant, Gary Takacs! Gary's podcast is "The Thriving Dentist Show" and has over 150 episodes and has been ongoing since 2011! We talk about podcasts: what he listens to and how he got started. Then we move onto his practice. Gary is part owner of a dental practice in Arizona. He talks a little about how he and his dentist partner found a "fixer upper" practice and turned it into the practice that they wanted. It's very interesting to hear how a practice management consultant literally built his own "dental test kitchen" to benefit his clients!

The Brain Trust features a discussion about practice systems. What are they? Why does it seem so hard to implement them? Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Frank Clayton, Dr. Melissa Zettler and Dr. Brent Young discuss their own experience with developing and implementing office systems. It sounds kind of dry, right? Not when the Brain Trust does it!

Whether you're an employer or an employee you'll get a lot out of episode #31! We spend the whole show talking with some Brain Trust all stars about their experience as employers and how to find, keep and fire employees! The episode was inspired by some recent HR changes at Dr. Matt Standridge's practice in Eureka, KS. He joins Jason and Alan along with Dr. Melissa Zettler and Dr. Lance Timmerman to talk about the best ways to find employees, how to know who to hire and when to fire.

In episode 30 we continue our interview with Dr. Barry Glassman. Dr. Glassman is a dentist and educator who gave up general practice to focus on treating patients with craniofacial pain and sleep disorders. We spend most of the interview talking about occlusion. Does occlusion cause disease? Does it cause pain? Does it really even matter that  much?

The Brain Trust continues it's decidedly NSFW conversation about analogies that we use to explain complex ideas to patients. You might want to skip this one if there are kids in the car. Or if you're drinking anything...unless you want it to come out your nose!
