In another milestone episode of Dentists, Implants and Worms (our tenth episode!), we had the chance to interview California's biggest Chicago Cubs fan— John Tyszka.  We're joined by John all the way from Oceanside, California where he owns Precision One Medical.

Precision One Medical was established in late 2009 and is headquartered in Oceanside California in a 30,000 square foot facility.   Each member of the ownership team has been involved in the dental and medical manufacturing sectors for over twenty years. The experience levels in these areas don’t end at ownership. The Manufacturing and Quality teams have equally substantial experience in medical manufacturing methods and systems.

It's the week of milestones here on Dentists, Implants and Worms, as we reached TWO more in Episode #9.  We had the pleasure of having our first in-studio guest on the show AND our first female guest— marketing and social media guru, Maureen Gustafson.

Maureen has an extensive background in marketing, having worked with a variety of marketing firms and consultants.  While she currently owns the newly opened My Place Hotels in Rapid City, Maureen has continued to keep up with the ever-changing world of marketing and social media, and has offered her vast knowledge and experience to other businesses around town.  You'll hear a specific shout-out to Boyd's Wine and Spirits (yes, we'll take some vodka in exchange for that shout-out!), which Maureen handles their social media.

When you're in need of an affordable hotel— definitely check out My Place Hotels in Rapid City.  The newly constructed building (it's beautiful!) is located at 1612 Discovery Circle, Rapid City, SD 57701 and you can give them a call at 605-791-5800.  Also, check out for more information about My Place Hotels in other cities around the country.

Until next time— cheers!

Episode #8 marks a unique milestone for Dentists, Implants and Worms!  Typically, our guests have included doctors who are friends, colleagues, mentors and classmates of Dr. Moody— but this time, a fan of our show, Dr. Bill Williams, DDS, reached out to us and expressed interest in being a guest.

It was a pleasure getting to know him and discussing the business details behind an established practice.  Previously, our podcast topics have mostly included business practices for the dentist coming out of dental school or dentists who have recently bought into a private practice.  Dr. Williams gives us some insight on how the 40-65 year old dentist can finish strong in his or her career.

Dr. Williams resides in Atlanta, Georgia where he graduated from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry.  He is a published author and serves as a dental advisor/coach under Solstice Dental Advisors in Atlanta.  His number one key to success is to always have 8 cars in the parking lot at 8am.  Sound advice from Dr. Williams!
