The Dental Hacks Podcast

The Dental Hacks are joined again by Dr. Artie Volker, this time to talk about finishing and polishing composites! Once we get past the horrible Sean Connery impersonations, there's some really good information there! Then Jason speaks with Laura Hatch about office systems. It's one thing to have an HR manual but it's a whole different ball game to implement systems throughout your practice!

Jason and Alan try something new in episode 193. We told the Dental Hacks Nation to "ask us anything" and guess what...they did!

The Dental Hacks are doing all kinds of new things this week! In their first "live to tape" episode they talk about rolling out all kinds of new Dental Hacks goodness!

First, they discuss the roll out of the new Dental Hacks Daily podcast! The "DHD" comes out M-Th and offers a short, super focused episode feature two guests talking about a wide variety of topics! You can catch it on the regular Dental Hacks feed!

Then they talk about the new, improved Dental Hacks website! No longer just a place for podcast show notes (although there is that, too!), the website features daily posts from past guests, Brain Trust members and lots of other interesting dental people! We're talking practice management, clinical stuff and "life stuff," too. Add to that our own brand of dental satire (we call it Dental Shallots) and you've got the most entertaining and informative dental website ever!

Then we launch into our listener questions. Which were awesome. And hilarious. And informative! This one turned out so well, we're going to have to do it again sometime!

Alan is joined by Dr. Chris Ramsey in two separate segments recorded live at the AACD. Chris practices restorative dentistry in Jupiter, FL. He's passionate about dentistry, but he's REALLY passionate about communication, body language, human behavior, and customer service! He speaks all over the place about this stuff and he's created the M.A.S.T.E.R. program to help dentists and other businesses take advantage of emotional story telling. Also joining Chris in the second segment are Dr. Ed Lowe, editor of the AACD Journal and Nelson Rego, an amazing lab technician who was actually raved about in a recent episode with Dr. Rob Ritter and Dr. Bob Margeas!

Lastly we sat down with Dr. Bob Margeas and his friend Dr. Marcos Vargas, a researcher and clinical instructor at the University of Iowa! There's a lot here...something for everyone!
