The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason is joined by Hollie Bryant, a dental coach and consultant. They talk a lot about the business of dentistry, managing an office and team, especially after the COVID shut down. Some of the topics they covered are:

  • Why is "consultant" a dirty word?
  • When is the right time to bring on a consultant?
  • Is growth always the goal? What does growth look like?
  • People don't look for/find creative solutions when things are good
  • How are new dentists being brainwashed?
  • What should we look for as fall approaches?
  • How often should we call patients? When?
  • Hollie on "cross training" in the office
  • Hollie on "farming duties out" and creating a team
  • Hollie on bringing your kids to work
  • Dentists doing prophies
  • Dental office becoming "virtual schools"
  • Can dental offices attract "medical" people?
  • Leadership is more important now more than ever before!
  • COVID and depression

Single tooth isolation can be a snap with the Instidam from Zirc! I love using the Instidam Latex Free Relaxed. It has the frame built right in and has just the right tension to allow easy placement and easy radiographs throughout the procedure. Single use means no sterilization and no cross contamination! Go check out Al's favorite at and use coupon code "INSTIHACKS" for $5 off of a 20 pack of regular or "relaxed" through August!
