The Very Dental Podcast Network

Premier Dental has been making quality products for dentistry for a long time. 104 years to be exact. Even more amazing is the fact that it has been family owned for all that time! Our guest for episode 134 is Julie Charlestein, a 4th generation CEO of Premier Dental products. She tells Alan and Jason the story about Premier's founding and it's 104 years of making high quality and innovative products for the dental office. Furthermore, we talk about the long tradition of "family businesses" in dentistry...on both the manufacturing side and the clinical side!

Our Brain Trust segment features Sue Robinson of Practice with Honor. Brain Trust regulars Dr. Rich Rosenblatt and Dr. Dawn Kulongowski join Jason and Alan to hear about how Sue and her company help dentists with leadership, managing teams, having an amazing front office and even dealing with insurance companies! Both Rich and Dawn are clients of Sue and they help explain how this kind of coaching can really help in the dental office.
