The Very Dental Podcast Network

Yelling down the hall is very 80's. Walkie-talkies...late 90's into the "early oughts." It's time to bring your intra office communications into the "twenty-teens!" Hardware options from Apple watches to tablets to the computer in every operatory makes the old technlogies seem obsolete. We talk with the leader in intra-office communications about the software he invented to make every office run more smoothly: OperaDDS. We get inside the brain of a dentist/software designer who put this technology together to improve the patient experience in his office and now it's available to everyone! Go check out OperaDDS and get special pricing using coupon code "Hacks." I know...very original.

The Brain Trust spends a little time talking about the advantages of being a member of Smile Source. Then the Brain Trust switches gear. Dr. Melissa Zettler tells us a little bit about a Google review that took her by surprise and what can you do for a bad/unfair Google review. (Answer: not much at all). Dr. Lance Timmerman and Dr. Mike Keller round out this panel with Jason and Alan that will have you laughing and checking your reviews!
