Jason LOVES real estate talk. Al is kind of meh. But every dentist eventually runs into some of these concerns.

Dr. Chris Phelps is a marketer. It's in his blood. Spend any time with him at all and you'll see that he just can't turn it off. He's the originator of CallTrackerROI, an ingenious service that allows you to track how effective your marketing is. He's also one of the foremost experts on the science of influence. He's even studied directly under Dr. Robert Cialdini PhD, who is essentially the jedi master of influence marketing. All this gives Chris a very interesting and fascinating outlook on why some marketing works and some marketing doesn't. You're going to find Chris fascinating, and you're probably going to want to hear more. Here's how you can:

In the Brain Trust we feature Dr. Mike Keller, Dr. Dawn Kulongowski and Dr. Melissa Zettler as we talk and/or commiserate about treating the geriatric population. What challenges are we seeing with patients as they age? How do some patients age differently than others? Can all patients give consent for dental treatment? This is an important yet entertaining discussion that should not be missed!

Dr. Mike DiTolla makes a triumphant return to the Dental Hacks podcast in episode 101! Our first return interview gets his very own episode and we talk about a bunch of amazing stuff! For instance:

  • How is being bought by Dentsply like marrying a wealthy woman?
  • How the merger of Dentsply and Sirona spawned what could be the most epic dental meeting of all time: Siroworld 2016!
  • Why it's best if you don't have to be brilliant every time you come to the office and what Mike wants to do to make life more consistent
  • How do temporaries make everyone's life a little harder?
  • How do they choose speakers and performers for Siroworld?
  • What was it like to be a guest on the Adam Carolla show?
  • Should you feel bad if you aren't doing a bunch of onlays?
  • What is a vertiprep and can zirconia tolerate a feather edge?

Be sure to check out Mike's podcast, the Accidental Geniuses, with his partner-in-crime Dr. Josh Austin, too!

How can you improve outcomes in your endodontics? How do you know if your specialists are doing a good job for you? Our second interview with Dr. Rebekah Pryles and Dr. Brooke Blicher is a deep dive in some of the procedural nuances that endodontists are using daily to get great outcomes. Should you be using hand files more? Are you irrigating long enough? What sealers are they using? You'll here it all from a couple of very approachable specialists. Be sure to check out their recently released book: Endodontics Review: A Study Guide. I bought it...it looks like a textbook but reads like one of those "for dummies" books. I love how easy it is to navigate to what you want and it's written to be engaging, not boring!

The Brain Trust expands upon more interesting dental business models. We spend a hilarious half hour with Dr. Melissa Zettler, Dr. Frank Clayton and Dr. Brent Young talking about "emergency only" clinics, "walk in" hygiene clinics and a whole new beast that allows dentists to bid for the the kind of patients they want in their office! It's very entertaining and will actually get you thinking! (Brain Trust starts at: 42:35)
