We were lucky enough to have a couple of lovely ladies join us in Studio 1-A for the latest episode which centers around the discussion of drama in the dental office.  Our favorite guest and Queen of The Worms, Erin Elliott, DDS and her Dental Sleep Medicine Coordinator, Brianne Bove joined us in-studio from Post Falls, Idaho.

It's always a pleasure to have you both in Rapid City, whether it be for training, podcasting or just visiting!  Cheers!

Ignite Your Dental Assistants!  Metaphorically, of course... don't actually set them on fire.  We have an Advocate for Today's Dental Assistants on the latest podcast.  Check out what Kevin Henry of IgniteDA (http://www.kevinspeaksdental.com) has to say about utilizing your dental assistants and making sure they are as invested in your business as you are.  It's not surprise the dentist is the top earning employee in any practice— but where do the dental assistants fall?  It's a question you'll be asking yourself while listening to the latest episode with Kevin Henry.

Cheers!

Believe it or not, folks... Dentists, Implants and Worms have made it to Episode 100!  In celebration of our huge milestone episode, we decided to try out something different by featuring some of our closest friends and supporters on the show.  In short, it didn't go well due to technical difficulties— mainly because the three of us are Skype newbies. (Yeah, we'll work on that.)

Regardless of the "shit show" when it came to Skype, we managed to make the best of it by briefly connecting with our biggest fans: Mike Freimuth, DDS; The Dental Hacks Podcast (Alan Mead, DDS and Jason Lipscomb, DDS); Erin Elliott, DDS; Lisa Moler; The Life and Dentistry Podcast; Danny Domingue, DDS.

Perhaps, even more notably, The Worm himself— John Landers, DDS— decided to grace us with his presence.

I promise you there IS some dental content discussed around the 1 hour 20 minute mark (thank you Dr. Domingue).  All in all though, it was a greatly entertaining podcast and I truly mean it when I say that I've never had so much fun taking around 3 hours of technical difficulties and non-sequiters and cutting it down to a super-sized (1 hour and 40 minutes) episode of Dentists, Implants and Worms.

We can't thank ALL 100 of our previous guests enough.  Trust us, if we were able to, we would have Skyped you all in, but as you can tell from listening to this episode, we could barely handle 8 guests, let alone 100.

Here's to another 100 episodes of the podcast that navigates you through the world of dentistry, one vodka-soda at a time!  Thank you for listening and supporting us, and cheers!

A ghost from the world of dentistry's past walked through the doors of the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit and we were lucky enough (and honored) to sit him down for a tell-all interview.  Ryan Swain is the founder and former CEO of Six Month Smiles.  He has not been in the world of dentistry for at least the last four years and has in the process become somewhat missing in action.  Suddenly he showed up for the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit and we just had to hear his story and see what he's up to.

Ryan speaks about his history with Six Month Smiles and also goes into the gut-wrenching divorce that has forced him to audit his life and his priorities.  He has a simple warning for all dentists, businessmen, businesswomen— people who work hard and are extremely driven by nature— "slow your ass down and learn to say no sometimes."  This is a piece of honest advice that all dentists, businessmen and women should take to heart.

To find a balance on this hamster wheel of life— that is truly the key to finding peace and happiness.

Along with Ryan Swain and the usual suspects, Justin, Gabe and Jeff, we were also joined by Danny Domingue.  We wish Ryan Swain all the luck and good fortune as he continues his journey on the hamster wheel. We would definitely love to have him back!

Learn what millennial dentists are doing to exceed patient expectations, enjoy dentistry more, and take more vacations! This is how generations collaborate to make an unstoppable dental team!  Check out The Millennial Dentist Podcast on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-millennial-dentist/id1191495068?mt=2

From his practice's website at http://www.tenneseedentist.com/ :

"I graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville in 2011 with honors and received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2015, where I received the Dean’s Award for Clinical Excellence.

As a dentist, I have the unique opportunity to truly impact people’s lives. When I’m relieving discomfort, straightening teeth and restoring function, or providing a beautiful and confident smile, I’m helping my patients look and feel better.

I am honored that patients come to me and trust me with their oral health. The lifelong friendships we build and strengthen during their visits are immensely rewarding. I love our conversations and what each person chooses to share with me. Not only does this create a bond, but it gives me insight into the best way to approach their oral healthcare needs.

I’m proud to be a fifth-generation dentist and to be joining my father in our family practice. Growing up in a dental family, seeing the fulfillment my father and grandfather found in their days, and witnessing the friendships they made with their patients; all these made dentistry the logical path. I have no doubt I made the right decision.

My formal schooling provided a great foundational knowledge with regard to dentistry. However, oral healthcare is a constantly changing discipline. With developments in techniques and technology, as well as new materials, it’s essential I remain current on the changes. By participating in multiple continuing education courses and attending meetings and lectures through the American Dental Association, I stay up to date with the developments.

I’m particularly excited by my continuing education in Six Month Smiles®, an accelerated, cosmetic braces solution that creates incredible smiles. I also completed Pinhole Rejuvenation with Dr. John Chao, and I am a graduate of Alabama Implant Education. In addition, I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Most recently I have spent quite a bit of time furthering my education with implants. I am currently a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. 

I grew up in and have now returned to Brentwood, TN, following my four years in Memphis for dental school. It’s exciting to be home again, serving my friends and neighbors.

I married my amazing, beautiful, Godly wife Caroline in 2013. We met in our senior year at the University of Tennessee in social dance class. After several years of long-distance romance while I was in dental school, we were married on Kiawah Island in her home state of South Carolina. Caroline is extremely talented, having graduated in the top of her class at UT’s business school. Right now it’s just the two of us at home, but you never know what the future holds!

When we’re not working, you’ll often find Caroline and me walking at Radnor Lake or cooking an amazing meal. On weekends, we’re either wake boarding and waterskiing with friends and family or heading to Knoxville to cheer on the Volunteers!

Personally, I’m committed to my relationship to Jesus Christ and thankful for all I have been given through him. He is the rock in my life, my family, and my hobbies."

We got to hang out with The Dental Guys at the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit in Nashville, TN. We had a great time getting to know Jon and Wes and also talked about some very relevant dental topics.

Enjoy Part Two of our two-hour podcast with The Dental Guys!

The Dental Guys podcast is the brainchild project of Wes and Jon.  Years ago Wes and Jon met at a continuing education event and immediately started a passionate on-going conversation about dentistry.  This conversation never ended and instead expanded to become the basis for the podcast.

Wes is a graduate of West Virginia University School of Dentistry in 2003 and University of Tennessee General Practice residency in 2004.  He maintains a private practice and is an instructor and attending for UT Medical Center.  Wes has attained fellowship status in the AGD and continues to train to learn advanced techniques.  He has over 13 years experience with dental implant placement and complex restorations.  Wes has always been on the cutting edge of technology in his practice and in his life and he brings this knowledge to the table on the podcast.

The Dental Guys podcast is dedicated to helping our fellow dentists take their clinical practice to the next level through discussing controversial and complex topics, reviewing dental research to see how it affects clinical practice, and sharing our combined experience as we learn together with our listeners.

Back in November (Episode 41) we had an aspiring young dental student (currently heading into his senior year of undergrad) named Brandon Evert.  He's awesome and on a great track to a successful start of his dental career.  We liked him so much that we decided to have him back for an update on his progress through dental school.

Brandon goes back home to Geneva, Chicago when he's not in school which prompted a slightly derailed discussion about the World Series.  Justin proves that when you are a successful dentist (like Brandon Evert is going to be) you have no problem going to Game 4 of the World Series and throwing down $1,000 on a table at Cubby's... just to pre-game before the game itself.  Oh, the life of a dentist.

He right in the middle of his educational career at Indiana University, expected to graduate in 2018.  So, while he is by far our youngest guest to be on the podcast… He proved himself to be quite the budding dentist!  Moody even grilled him over interview questions that they would ask while in the process of graduating or certified.

Fun fact: Brandon also follows another passion of his which is rock music.  He plays guitar and provides vocals for his band, Chasing 401.  They’re pretty cool, so definitely check them out on YouTube!

You may remember Erin Elliott, DDS from her previous episodes on Dentists, Implants and Worms back in June 2016 where she was in Rapid City doing a sleep apnea continued education course for Justin's staff.
