Dr. Lance Timmerman was the first guest on the Dental Hacks podcast. Since then, he's started a bunch of podcasts: The Whole Tooth, Smile Source Radio and my favorite "Totally Oral." He interviewed me for the Totally Oral podcast recently about an article I wrote in Dental Economics about the ethics for Search Engine Optimization. I got his permission to post it as a special episode for Dental Hacks listeners...just before Christmas! We talked about SEO ethics, TSA precheck, blogging and what kind of marketing works. 

So...take a listen and then go subscribe to "Totally Oral." Lance gets interesting guests and is a good interviewer. It'll be worth your time! Oh...and Merry Christmas!

You're about to witness some "Hack on Hack" crime! In our special year end wrap up Alan interviews Jason about dental startups. Jason has started 4 practices in his career and is just about to open his new practice, "Brush Up Dental" in Richmond, VA. 

As you've come to expect from the Dental Hacks, Jason gives an honest account of the good, the bad and the ugly of his startup history. If you've ever thought about starting a practice from scratch or are pretty sure you don't want to...you should listen. 

We really want to thank our listeners for all their support. If it weren't for you, we'd be two dentists sitting in the basement talking to ourselves. Instead, we're two dentists sitting in the basement talking at you!

With today's current diagnostic criteria the prevalence of autism in children is 1 in 68. 1 in 42 for boys. What does that mean for dentists? We're going to need to understand austism and learn to treat them in our offices.

Dr. Jacob Dent is a dentist in Sugarland, TX that teaches other dentists how to help families and individuals dealing with autism with their dental health. In episode 77, Dr. Dent and Alan discuss strategies for treating people on the autism spectrum in the office. More importantly, both Jacob and Alan have children on the autism spectrum and they discuss how the diagnosis affected them, how it's changed their life and how it's changed the way they work with children and adults on the autism spectrum.

Also, at the end of episode 77 the Hacks describe some of the amazing content that they have in store for 2016 and announce that they'll be "dark" for the month of December while they retool the show!

Have a great holiday season and set your clocks for 10am EST on January 5th, 2016 for the the new and improved Dental Hacks!
