The Very Dental Podcast Network

Episode 131 features an amazing Brain Trust lineup. It's so amazing that we're not going to break it up like we normally do. It's 100% Brain Trust goodness! The recent Voices of Dentistry meeting gave us a chance to try the Brain Trust style live, and I think you'll find it was amazing. Jason and Alan were joined by Dr. Mark Costes, Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver and Dr. Melissa Zettler. 4 of the 5 of us have experience with startup dental offices. One of the five of us is more interested in fart jokes. But we think you'll find it to be a really good discussion of the good, the bad and the ugly of dental startups from some people who know!
