The Very Dental Podcast Network

Adam McWethy of Spear Education joins Jason and Alan to discuss patient communication, reviews and how they are connected!

Adam McWethy is the vice president of Marketing, Content and Faculty at Spear Education. He wears a lot of hats over there in Scottsdale! Jason and Alan had a chance to talk with him on how he came to dentistry, what his role at the Spear Center is and most importantly, some new research that's being released that everyone is going to want to check out. When most people think of Spear, they think about high end education for dentists. Who knew they were also on the cutting edge of reputation management and reviews? We talk about the small things you can do in your office to drive patient satisfaction and reviews and we talk about what Spear Education can do for you as a dentist!
