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.

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!
