The Very Dental Podcast Network


In today's episode Jason and Alan are joined by 3 Brain Trust noobs and they CRUSH IT! We have long time friends of the show (and Dental Hacks Nation) Dr. Craig Harder, Dr. Rusty Fitton and Dr. Daniel Smith join us for this live to tape episode that went all over the place! In episode 221 we discuss:

  • The Voices of Dentistry and why every listener of the Dental Hacks should be going!
  • Dr. Craig Harder's security camera
  • How much Christmas break is too much? Is there ever too much break?
  • Dr. Rusty Fitton's commute and how he developed a mini-specialty by caddying for oral surgeons in a past life
  • Dr. Daniel Smith's transition from mom and pop shop to a Heartland affiliate
  • Triumphs of 2018
  • Intraoral scanners (Craig and Rusty just got Medit i500s!)
  • Upcoming CE
