The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. Erin Elliott is a general dentist in Post Falls, Idaho. She has incorporated the treatment of sleep apnea into her practice in a big way, and she's here to tell you how you can do it, too! In episode 87 we get down to the nitty gritty.

  • How does she find patients?
  • How are they diagnosed?
  • What kinds of treatment does she recommend?
  • How does she bill the patient's medical insurance?

Erin sleeping 1Erin sleeping 2tbonesleepsErin is teaming up with Dental Hacks favorite Dr. Tarun Agarwal to do a powerhouse 2 day course on treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea in your office. The course is at Tarun's amazing teaching center in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 1-2, 2016. For more information and an invitation to an exclusive webinar by these amazing clinicians you should text "sleep1" to 44222.

In our Brain Trust we continue our conversation with the amazing hygienists of the "Tale of Two Hygienists with Michelle and Andrew," Michelle Strange and Andrew Johnston. We dig into Michelle's teaching background, Andrew's restorative background and then take a good hard look at midlevel providers: the good, the bad and the ugly. Make sure to take a listen to their podcast, too. They provide a bunch of relevant information from the viewpoint of the most misunderstood dental team member! (I recommend episode 7 which features the "guygienist round table")
