The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan are joined by the one and only Dr. Baron Grutter (sounds like "butter," please excuse our mispronunciation on the show) to talk about all things digital dentistry!

If you're interested in implementing some of the newest and most innovative digital technologies in your office, this episode is for you! Baron walks us through the state of digital dentistry including his amazing workflow for implants and in office ortho aligners! Did you know that using free software and an investment of about $100 (including labor!) you can plan and execute your own orthodontic aligners? Get ready to take some notes...this one is amazing!
