The Dental Hacks Podcast

In today's episode Alan shares some content created on the floor of the Chicago Midwinter meeting. 

First up is a review of the Heraues Kulzer Cara which is halfway between conventional impressions and intraoral scanning. Kind of cool. This sales guy also talked Alan into buying an intro kit for the Pala Digital denture system.

Next Alan talked with Mike O'Malley of Cosmedent about how they've developed a lot of their products based on ideas from practicing dentists! 

Finally Alan shares a short interview with Cole Hackett and Joe Blalock, two seniors at the University of Kentucky School of dentistry. They had just finished taking their mock boards and drove from Lexington up to Chicago to see the midwinter! They're starting a new podcast called "Life and Dentistry" which will be up and running soon!

Vicki McManus is the CEO of The Productive Dentist Academy. Also, she's a blast! We did a live interview of Vicki at the Voices of Dentistry Summit last month and it was super fun and delivered tons of value! Today's episode focuses on different habits that you can create that will make your life easier, your days more productive and your career longer. You should take some notes...just about everything she says is actionable and amazing!

Brain Trust favorites Dr. Dawn Kulongowski and Dr. Brent Young joined Jason and Alan on stage for a rousing game of "best and worst." We also welcome Brain Trust newcomer, Dr. Scott Bridges to the stage...who graciously covered for the always hilarious but temporarily sick Dr. Frank Clayton!

Episode 131 features an amazing Brain Trust lineup. It's so amazing that we're not going to break it up like we normally do. It's 100% Brain Trust goodness! The recent Voices of Dentistry meeting gave us a chance to try the Brain Trust style live, and I think you'll find it was amazing. Jason and Alan were joined by Dr. Mark Costes, Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver and Dr. Melissa Zettler. 4 of the 5 of us have experience with startup dental offices. One of the five of us is more interested in fart jokes. But we think you'll find it to be a really good discussion of the good, the bad and the ugly of dental startups from some people who know!
