The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. Gregg Kinzer sat down for a conversation with Alan back in September at the incomparable Spear Summit! For those that aren't familiar with Gregg, he's the prosthodontist that joined Dr. Frank Spear (you may have heard of him) in practice awhile back. He also lectures in many programs at Spear Education in Scottsdale, AZ. He's essentially the backbone of many of the programs at Spear Education, so he doesn't get many chances to go take CE of his own. And that, my friends, is how speakers are chosen for Spear Summit! Some of the topics they discussed:

  • Gregg vs. Jeff Rouse at Spear Summit
  • How Gregg chooses speakers for Summit
  • Live Seminars are BACK at Spear! 
  • Virtual seminars vs. live seminars
  • Picking your friendly face when you're on stage
  • Summit is a challenge for a to bring your A game.
  • AV at's a whole thing
  • Gregg needs to come to the Vedder Society!
  • Gregg on social media and how he and Jeff have evolved on social media and influence
  • Why don't they teach literature review in dental school? It's not about quoting, it's about understanding experimental design
