The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan take questions from the Dental Hacks Nation. And the DHN comes through! In episode 228 we answer:

  • What are your favorite pizza toppings?
  • What was your most hilariously embarrassing moment?
  • Have you ever drilled into the wrong tooth? What did you say to the patient and how did you make it right?
  • What's for breakfast?
  • Why do you think it is important to go over to LMT LabDay during Mid-Winter?
  • How do you handle snow days at the office? Which one if you is the better snow shoveler?
  • What is the best gift to give to a patient of 20 years?
  • (Alan) What was the tipping point for your narcotic addiction and who or what made you reevaluate?
  • What’s the one piece of technology you don’t have but wish you did in your practice (or new practice in Jason’s case)?
  • Has All the new platforms (podcasts, FB pages, webinars etc) helped create more wonderful content and voices or created more wannabe experts masquerading as influencers and authorities?
  • Why is that people that graduated ages ago think they have the best advice for new grads?
  • How many bridges do you prep each year?

Thanks to all of the members of the Dental Hacks Nation for great questions! We'll be sure to do this again!
