The Dental Hacks Podcast

Dr. Josh Austin gets to try a lot of new stuff. Some of the stuff he tries, he keeps using. And that's what he's going to tell us about in episode 118. Josh is the co-host of the Accidental Geniuses podcast and he writes the "Pearls for Your Practice" column in Dental Economics! Here's some of the things he likes:

What would you do? That's what we ask in the Brain Trust segment in episode 118. Jason and Alan were joined by Dr. Jason Luchetefeld, Dr. Will Wyatt and Dr. Rich Weber to play a game of "what would you do?" Here's how it works: Alan throws out a plausible situation that could happen in the dental office and the Brain Trust takes turns deciding how they might handle the situation. In episode 118 we talk patients with untreated hypertension, patients who slide through financial arrangements and a bunch of other fun stuff. Listeners, let us know if you liked this segment!

What's the best way to pay your hygienists? It can be tough to balance productivity in the office with profitability in an office. That's where Dr. Bob Margeas and Dr. Rob Ritter come in. They talk about the system they've implemented in their offices that's a win for their bottom line, a win for patients and a big win for the hygienists themselves!

In episode 116 the Brain Trust continues discussing options for a dentist in a dead end associateship. This week we focus on options other than ownership. Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Melissa Zettler and Dr. Richard Low of the Shared Practices Podcast give their input on some great options for a young dentist asking for help!

Do you suffer from "busy but not productive?" Are there things that you're doing that kill your productivity that you don't even realize? In episode 115 the Dental Hacks feature Dr. Bob Margeas and returning guest Dr. Rob Ritter talking about this very thing! These guys are good friends and talk daily about the difference between being busy (barber shop dentistry) and being productive. Their suggestions are awesome and they aren't what you'd expect!

Today's Brain Trust is kind of special. Jason and Alan received an email from a listener who described a dead end associateship and wanted some advice. So...we called in the Brain Trust! Episode 115 features Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Richard Low of the the Shared Practices Podcast and Dr. Melissa Zettler breaking down this listener's situation and walking through some options.

If you ever wanted the Brain Trust to give some opinions about your situation, feel free to email us at: info@dentalhacks.com and we'll be sure to take a look at it!
