The Dental Hacks Podcast

Dr. David Hornbrook was on the ground floor with the cosmetic dentistry revolution. In today's episode he discusses what it's like to be on the cutting edge of teaching dentists cosmetic dentistry and how it's changed over the years. From PFM crowns to minimally invasive veneers, he's seen it all and tells an interesting story of where he thinks the profession is heading. Recently David began working with Keating Dental Arts as the Director of Clinical Education and Technology and in episode 40 he gave us links to all sorts of materials and cementation guides that he has produced.

In today's Brain Trust segment we bring on 3 favorites: Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Matt Standridge and Dr. Brent Young to talk about treatment planning and getting the most out of your hygiene recall exams. But first, the Brain Trust veers into an interesting discussion about the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on mall kiosk bleaching.

To celebrate the 40th episode of the DentalHacks podcast we feature an interview with the incomparable Dr. David Hornbrook! Dr. Hornbrook is a founder of the Las Vegas Institute, PAC-live and the Hornbrook Group. He's a wet fingered dentist and influential dental educator who has mentored thousands of dentists in his career.

Also, he answers email. Which seems like a silly thing to mention except that his approachable manner makes him one of the most popular dental educators today! HornbrookHeadshot

Most recently David has begun working with Keating Dental Arts as the Director of Clinical Education and Technology and we discussed some of the new educational offerings that David will be involved with at Keating. From there, we talked about communicating with the lab and the inevitable conflict that happens between lab technicians and dentists. Is it the lab tech's place to tell you that your impression sucks? Do you want to hear it? From there we moved into discussing digital impressions and where dental technology is heading.

We finish up our 3 part Brain Trust series recorded live in Chicago in Dawn Kulongowski's hotel room (if you must know). We finish up our discussion with how to get paid. Tarun discusses his implementation of in house financing and wonders why you haven't taken advantage of this amazing option in your office! (For more details, enjoy our DentalHacks special on in house financing here!) So don't miss Dr. Rich Rosenblatt, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, Dr. Tammy Bailey and Dr. Linc Harris as they weigh in!

Dr. Linc Harris has an interesting practice. Lots of complex restorative treatment, yet no hygienist. With the marketing success he's had, he's developed a technique to clarify the patient's wants and needs without taking on their problems. In today's episode of the DentalHacks podcast, he explains how to consult slow and treat fast to Alan and Brain Trust favorite Dr. Dawn Kulongowski!

Our all-star live Brain Trust continues with a discussion of how dental meetings and CE have changed. Are there too many dental meetings? Is organized dentistry out of touch with what dentists really need? We recorded live from Chicago during the Midwinter meeting with some of the Brain Trust favorites (Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Dawn Kulongowski) as well as some of the DentalHacks favorite guests! We feature Dr. Tarun Agarwal, Dr. Rich Rosenblatt and Dr. Linc Harris.

This week's episode is kind of different. In our interview segment we feature a discussion with Dr. Linc Harris. Linc is a dentist in the small town of Bundaberg in the province of Queensland in Australia. He's a self professed small town dentist who has had amazing success! In today's episode Linc talks about how his practice "out in the middle of nowhere" has become an amazing success! He's a marketing genius who's had luck with a lot of different modalities and he talks all about it with Alan and Brain Trust favorite Dr. Dawn Kulongowski!
