In today's episode, the Dental Hacks go back to basics. No guests. No Brain Trust. Just Jlips and Al. So what do we have to talk about? As always...lots.

  • Jason's latest CE trip to the Henry Schein Business Institute
  • How does your debt load affect the way you treatment plan? How does what kind of day you're having affect the way you treatment plan? What can you do to be more consistent?
  • How are the Hacks feeling about the future of dentistry?
  • A whole bunch of other stuff

And of course, we talk about the Voices of Dentistry meeting which is THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY!

Rural dentistry. Everyone always says that's where the gold is. Dr. Justin Moody understands rural dentistry and we spend some time talking about how he has grown a rural, multiple practice empire in Nebraska and South Dakota. Then we talk about how Justin has designed a new educational program based in the United States! Justin's education center is called the Implant Pathway. What if you could earn implants from the beginning with much of the basic information organized and presented online and focus on the valuable hands-on stuff at the live programs? What if you could do live treatment planning, placement, uncovering and restoration all done in the United States? Well, now you can! And you'll be doing homeless veterans a favor! Justin has really put together an amazing implant program and he's offering listeners of the Dental Hacks some special savings! Use coupon code "Hacks1000" to save $1000 off of Implant Pathway registration!

We pick up with our "listener question" Brain Trust with Dr. Erin Elliott, Dr. Rich Rosenblatt, Dr. Tammy Bailey and Dr. Dawn Kulongowski! We talk about how we handle social media personally as well as what we're doing with social media in the office! Then we talk about vacation and how to make sure you plan your time off ahead of time, how we handle coverage when we're gone and even how we handle emergencies when we're out of the office! It's great stuff!

Our guest for episode 128, Dr. Justin Moody, is one of the hosts of the popular dental podcast "Dentists, Implants and Worms." What you might not know about Justin is his amazing background in dental implants and teaching others about them! That all changes today.  Justin has created a learning center for implant dentistry Implant Pathway that is second to none. You're going to hear more about that in our next episode with Justin. For today, you'll hear about his journey from dental student to "almost" oral surgery resident to multiple practice owner who has limited his own practice to implant dentistry. It's a pretty great story about CE and being a rural dentist that everyone needs to hear!

In today's Brain Trust Alan is joined by Dr. Rich Rosenblatt, Dr. Dawn Kulongowski, Dr. Tammy Bailey and Dr. Erin Elliott to answer listener questions! These 4 all stars weigh in about how they handle redo's and how they handle their social media presence for their practice. It's good info and it's VERY funny stuff!

How does one become a cosmetic dentist? Well, obviously there are tons of courses, but what about following a path that's been laid out by people who are already doing it? Dr Corky Willhite tells us how he got started with cosmetic dentistry and about his mentors. He also tells us how the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has influenced his career and enhanced his dentistry through mentorship.

The Brain Trust explains why they feel like the CBCT has become an integral part of a well rounded dentist's armamentarium. Join Voices of Dentistry presenters/podcasters Dr. Justin Moody, Dr. Lance Timmerman and Dr. Wes Mullins as they talk with Jason and Alan about how they use the CBCT in their office and how they chose their machines.
