The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan welcome back Dr. Dennis Hartlieb for episode 234! Dennis is an exceptional clinician but perhaps an even better teacher! Dennis tells us all about how he started teaching over 20 years ago and how he discovered a way to teach to every kind of learner! By recording his teaching in small pieces and allowing technology to let dentists and students learn at their own pace, he's changing the way CE is being delivered! Dennis started "Dental Online Training" in an effort to make excellent CE more cost effective and time efficient for all restorative dentists! For a limited time DOT is offering listeners of the Dental Hacks podcast a free course, including all the course materials! Act quickly though, because it's only available for the first 200 listeners! Go to to claim your free class V composite course!
