Episode 7 of the DentalHacks podcast features the return of co-host Jason Lipscomb from his vacation as well as guest host Frank Clayton!
We interview Dr. Rich Rosenblatt about all things CEREC! Rich teaches for Sirona, Cerec Doctors, Patterson and Ivoclar (to name a few), but he slowed down long enough to sit down with Frank and Alan and tell us everthing he knows about bringing the CEREC into your practice!
In the Brain Trust segment we introduce a new member, Dr. Brent Young. The Brain Trust discusses the pros and cons of Medicaid in the dental practice and how to make it work in a practice if you choose to treat Medicaid patients.
After that, the DentalHacks take a little time to read and comment on listener email.
