The Dental Hacks Podcast

Jason and Alan join guest host Danny Vezmar for a rollicking conversation about the dental industry! Danny is the Director of Marketing, Restorative, Preventive and Lab at Dentsply Sirona. As a "third generation" dental industry person he's got a very unique take on the dental industry and our conversation was wide ranging!

  • Hot Voices of Dentistry talk
  • Danny's family has been in the dental industry for a LONG time.
  • Has Danny ever experienced a "Crystal Pepsi" product roll out?
  • Why did IRM come in different colors?
  • Should oral surgeons do TV commercials?
  • How is COVID affecting Dentsply Sirona?
  • PureVac HVE for aerosols
  • Dentsply Sirona's One DS™ 2.0+ Rewards Program and Clinical Accelerator (Pacman vs. Tupperware)
  • Jason and Alan are WaveOne Gold fan boys (What's the WaveOne situation?)
  • Aquasil Ultra "Cordless"
  • What's happening with CEREC?
  • What's the deal with Surefil One? (self adhesive, dual cured composite hybrid!)
  • Will we ever have dental meetings again? What happened with DS World?
  • the Dentsply Sirona Academy in Charlotte, NC.

Back to the endo we hit on all the fun stuff. Cold test, heat tests, percussion, x-rays, draining fistula tracking, cracked teeth, all the fun stuff!

Dr. Dawn Kulongowski joins Alan to talk about some of the subtle and not so subtle ways that we think.

Today's episode is an Encore edition featuring the one and only Dr. Frank Spear from the 2019 Spear Summit in Scottsdale, AZ! Jason and Alan had an hour during the Spear Summit to pick up where we left off from episode 235 and it was very interesting. Frank opened the meeting with a talk that discussed the stories that dentists tell each other about where the profession is going and then presented some data that suggests a lot of these stories aren't exactly true. Some of the things we discussed:

  • Why do insurance companies cover thing so differently from state to state?
  • The beauty of practicing in groups. But not necessarily a DSO.
  • Could someone become Frank Spear in the way that Frank did considering student debt as it is now?
  • How did beautiful temporaries make a difference in Frank's career?
  • Why does Frank feel responsible to help the narrative that dentists tell each other?
  • What's the data the Frank would really like to see?
  • Why is it so impossible to compare dental businesses and income across the country? How can you compare apples to apples?
  • Take home message: things are better than dentists are telling themselves!
  • What is dental school like when your dad is Frank Spear?
  • How could dental school teach things with more context?
  • Are there useful parallels between dental and medical education?
  • How will Frank's teaching schedule be changing in the future?
  • How is the curriculum at Spear Education changing?
  • What kind of "big numbers" has Frank been impressed with lately? (spoiler: it has to do with Spear Practice Solutions)

Overtreatment. Does it happen in dentistry or is it just a difference of opinion? In today's "ask us anything" episode Jason and Al address the topic of who's treating too much and who's not treating enough?

  • The case of a new dentist diagnosing "10 cavities" in a patient that's experienced no decay with their old dentist
  • The case of a "second opinion" with a giant perio treatment plan and no pockets over 3mm
  • Can the customer service model of "Discount Tire" be applied to dentistry?
  • Which would you rather repeat: dental school or 2020?
  • How much does a missed phone call cost? Does it make sense to work with someone to answer your calls "off site?"
  • Do you diagnose and treatment plan the same at the beginning of the day as the end of the day?

In the new COVID landscape some things are going virtual for the first time. For instance, take the ADA Meeting. It’s now the “ADA Virtual Connect Conference” and it’s coming up October 15th through the 17th. More about that in the Dental Hacks Nation Facebook page! YAPI has been helping dentists go totally digital for a decade now for all kinds of tasks throughout the dental office. You’ve got to take in and organize a ton of patient information and make sure it shows up in the right place at the right time. You’ve got to be able to communicate throughout your office at any time, yet you need to do it discreetly. As much as you wish you didn’t have to...you need to remind your patients of their appointments and try to avoid broken and failed appointments. You have to reactivate the patients that have fallen through the recall cracks. And now more than ever before you have to be able to ask your loyal patients for reviews in the right places like Google, Facebook and Yelp. It’s all important and needs to get done, but it can be a drag on your team. Our friends at YAPI have solutions for all of this and more! And they can do it paperlessly!
