The Dental Hacks Podcast

Voices of Dentistry 2018 is here! To celebrate, we're bringing back an amazing Brain Trust featuring Dr. Mark Costes, Dr. Melissa Zettler and Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver talking live with the Dental Hacks about startups!

The Voices of Dentistry 2017 was the original meeting featuring dental podcasts and the people that create them! Now that Voices of Dentistry 2018 has begun, we thought we'd feature one of the highlights from last year's meeting...a Brain Trust with a bunch of people that survived startups? Would they do it again? What surprised them the most? Whether you're interested in startups of just love the idea of a live Brain Trust...this one did not disappoint!
