The Very Dental Podcast Network

Do you suffer from "busy but not productive?" Are there things that you're doing that kill your productivity that you don't even realize? In episode 115 the Dental Hacks feature Dr. Bob Margeas and returning guest Dr. Rob Ritter talking about this very thing! These guys are good friends and talk daily about the difference between being busy (barber shop dentistry) and being productive. Their suggestions are awesome and they aren't what you'd expect!

Today's Brain Trust is kind of special. Jason and Alan received an email from a listener who described a dead end associateship and wanted some advice. So...we called in the Brain Trust! Episode 115 features Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Richard Low of the the Shared Practices Podcast and Dr. Melissa Zettler breaking down this listener's situation and walking through some options.

If you ever wanted the Brain Trust to give some opinions about your situation, feel free to email us at: and we'll be sure to take a look at it!
