The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan is joined by a very special guest, the ADA President Elect, Dr. Brett Kessler! 

Brett has been a good friend for a lot of years and the conversation is even more interesting now that he's serving as the ADA President Elect! Buckle up...we cover a lot of ground in this one!

  • What is life as the ADA President Elect?
  • What are his goals for his presidency?
  • What does he mean when he says that he wants to blow up the entire dental reimbursement model?
  • Why can't we offer the very best dentistry has to offer to EVERYONE?
  • We need to change the way dentistry stays relevant. We can no longer only get paid when we spin the drill.
  • What does Brett do with a magic wand to fix everything?
  • FQHC-->medical and dental under the same roof
  • How will technology help us moving forward?
  • How will DSOs affect the future?
  • The ADA and young dentists
  • Creating value for ADA membership...also reducing dues?
  • The ADA on license portability
  • Future-proofing dentistry
