The Dental Hacks Podcast

Jason and Alan are joined by Dr. Dawn Kulongowski, Dr. Melissa Zettler and coach/guru/rock star Suzanne Robinson to help manage conflicts in the dental office!

Jason and Alan are both confirmed avoiders of conflict. So we brought in the "A-team" to help us understand how to manage it! All dentists offices have to deal with confrontations. Whether it's between patients and team members or within the dental team, humans are always humans! How can we be better at dealing with it? This Brain Trust will bring you a long way to understanding your strengths and weaknesses and most importantly help you learn to be a better leader!

Dr. Tracey Nguyen joins Jason and Alan to discuss how dentists can be the first line in treating airway problems in children.

You see it every day. Kids with huge tonsils, collapsed arches and bags under their eyes. But did you know that dentists can effectively treat airway issues in treatment? Tracey Nguyen discusses her background in sleep dentistry and how she started diagnosing and treating airway issues in children. We discuss treatment options, working with specialists and putting together a team that can help children not become adults with sleep and airway issues! There's a lot of information here...you might want to listen twice!

Financial advisor and author Garrett Gunderson joins Jason and Alan to explain why IRAs suck and how we get retirement planning wrong.

How are you planning for retirement? Are you saving enough and in the right way? Financial advisor Garrett Gunderson joins the Dental Hacks to explain why a lot of what we think we know about financial planning is a myth! In this entertaining interview we talk about why IRAs suck, how student loan debt affects retirement and he even takes on some haters from the Dental Hacks Nation! We even dig into health insurance and American's poor health and why the best and brightest aren't going into medicine any more.

Garrett runs a financial planning company called the Wealth Factory where they help people with saving, tax strategies and all of the things we talked about on the show! He kind of got famous for writing the book, "Killing Sacred Cows: Overcoming the Financial Myths that are Destroying Your Prosperity." Do you want Garrett's new book for free? Text (801) 396-7211 with "wwrd" in the subject line and you can get an instant download!
