The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan join guest host Danny Vezmar for a rollicking conversation about the dental industry! Danny is the Director of Marketing, Restorative, Preventive and Lab at Dentsply Sirona. As a "third generation" dental industry person he's got a very unique take on the dental industry and our conversation was wide ranging!

  • What does a day in the life of Dentsply Sirona's "Director of Marketing, Restorative, Preventive and Lab" look like and how can we streamline that title?
  • Hot Voices of Dentistry talk
  • Danny's family has been in the dental industry for a LONG time.
  • Has Danny ever experienced a "Crystal Pepsi" product roll out?
  • Why did IRM come in different colors?
  • Should oral surgeons do TV commercials?
  • How is COVID affecting Dentsply Sirona?
  • PureVac HVE for aerosols
  • Dentsply Sirona's One DS™ 2.0+ Rewards Program and Clinical Accelerator (Pacman vs. Tupperware)
  • Jason and Alan are WaveOne Gold fan boys (What's the WaveOne situation?)
  • Aquasil Ultra "Cordless"
  • What's happening with CEREC?
  • What's the deal with Surefil One? (self adhesive, dual cured composite hybrid!)
