On Saturday, September 24th, the Dental Hacks made history! We recorded the very dental podcast at the Dental Economics Principles of Practice Management Conference! Jason and Alan were joined on stage by Dr. Dawn Kulongowski and Dr. Tammy Bailey for a terrific Brain Trust and then we featured Dr. Chris Salierno in the "Dental Hacks Cringe-fest" where we discuss some of our more cringeworthy mistakes in our dental practices!

The Principles of Practice Management conference was an amazing success and we had a great time with the audience! We think you will too! We'd like to thank all the amazing folks at Dental Economics for having us and congratulations on bringing a new, amazing meeting into existence!

If I asked you about the kind of people that your office serves, you'd be able to tell me right? But how do you know for sure? Maybe the population of your office isn't representative at all! Scott McDonald returns to help us understand how knowing the demographics in our area can help us with marketing, attracting the kind of patients that we want to see and even what procedures that we should be providing! Scott McDonald is a special kind of genius that you need to listen to. You can see what he does at Doctor Demographics and even subscribe to his podcast on iTunes!

The Brain Trust continues answering listener questions in episode 113! Dr. Matt Costa, Dr. Melissa Zettler, Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz and Dr. Art Volker join Alan to talk all about cores. The discuss the pros and cons or margin elevation, immediate dentinal bonding and indirect pulp caps. There are some disagreements and contention in this Brain Trust along with a bunch of laughs!

How do you know which places are going to be great for a dental practice? Which places aren’t so hot? How much risk are you willing to take? Scott McDonald of Doctor Demographics is here to explain! In episode 112 Scott and Alan talk about the information you need to make a lot of important decisions about locating your practice. Most importantly, Scott dishes on some specific places that “suck hose water” and places that are booming! Be sure to check out Scott’s own podcast here!

In episode 112 we feature listener questions to the Brain Trust! Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, Dr. Arthur Volker, Dr. Matt Costa and Dr. Melissa Zettler come together to discuss contacts that open up over time, getting rid of paper charts as well as what are we going to do with the massive amounts of digital data that we can collect on our patients? Finally, we start to talk about the core restoration. Where, when and why!
