In 1981, Owens-Illinois, the 6th largest glass plant in the world, closed its doors. What followed was a domino effect of failed businesses, staggering unemployment and a devastatingly bleak economy. That was the year after Dr. Steven Rasner opened his practice in the same town. Regrettably, since that time, Bridgeton, NJ has remained nationally ranked for its unemployment, poverty level and lack of growth.

During this same period, Dr. Rasner has nurtured a private, fee-for-service practice that commands fees in the top percentile in the nation. It grosses over 4.1 million per year on a four-day workweek with a “two day per week” associate and a “substantial bottom line.” His team of 16 has been with the practice an average of 16 years. Dr. Rasner takes an active roll in his community and received a Congressional Recognition Award in 2000 for his civic contributions.

Dr. Rasner has published multiple books, including: The Protocol Book; The Art of Getting Paid; and The Bullet Proof Guide to the Extraordinary Practice.

In our final interview from the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit 2018, we go out with style!  Our guest this episode is none other than THE Tarun Agarwal, DDS— commonly known as T-BONE!  He came all the way from Boston, Mass. to be with us in Scottsdale, Arizona.

On this episode, Justin and T-Bone are joined by Mike Freimuth, Randy Houska and Gabe Olson (who is still standing at this point, which is amazing).  In it they go into a bit of banter back and forth before going into details about a charity campaign that will ultimately raise $50,000 for a charity of Sully Sullivan's (from the Millennial Dentist) choice, in exchange for shaving his head!  More details on that to come.

Unfortunately, this podcast came to an abrupt halt mid-way through because someone touched the record button and paused recording, unbeknownst to everyone.  Yes, we're amateurs.  I guess that's always a danger of drinking on the job!  Anyway, please enjoy what we have recorded from this podcast and definitely check out T-Bone's podcast, T-Bone Speaks, if you haven't already.

Bruce B. Baird, DDS is a well respected cosmetic and family dentist in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His practice is located in Granbury, Texas. Dr. Baird’s expertise as an implant dentist has afforded him the skill to perform dental implant surgery and restorations since the mid-1980s. In 1990, he established the Texas Centers for Implant Dentistry, a mobile practice that allowed him to work with more than 25 doctors in the region. Recognizing his ability to help other dentists to achieve the same success he has experienced in his practice, Dr. Baird partnered with Vicki McManus, RDH to create Productive Dentist Academy. The Academy has been an invaluable resource to dentists nationwide.

Justin is joined by special guest co-hosts Drs. Randy Houska and Mike Freimuth (Gabe was swiftly kicked out once the topic of Impant Dentistry came up— sorry Gabe!).  They were joined by a super cool and very easy to talk to implantologist, Dr. August de Oliverira at the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit 2018.  It's a very fun episode with a unique blend of discussion about implant dentistry, continued education programs and penis pumps.  Blame Dr. Mike Freimuth for the latter topic.  Anyway, it's a fun and information listen— check it out!  Check out more about Dr. August de Oliveira by visiting

What happens when Dr. John "The Worm" Landers and the Pasty Gangsta aka Renaissance Millennial, Jeffrey Smith, go rogue and interview the lovely ladies, Sarah and Kat, from CE Zoom? Well, find out by listening! But we'll give you a hint— there's not a whole lot of dental content. HOWEVER, we do talk about exactly what CE Zoom is all about and Sarah and Kat's story about how they came to be not only best friends forever, but also business partners! Oh, and then we discuss relevant topics such as Danica Patrick, ISIS merchandise and what goes into making a hip-hop music video (check this out:

CE Zoom is a pretty handy tool for dental professionals who have always wished to offer continued education, but didn't quite know where to begin. CE Zoom will not only track, store, and remind you of your continuing education requirements, but it simplifies check-in procedures for CE courses and conferences, instantly generates continuing education certificates that will immediately be stored and saved never to be misplaced or lost again.

The Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit 2018 was proud to use CE Zoom for CE credit distribution and registration.

Check out CE Zoom by visiting and let Sarah know what your goals are for offering continued education. If they don't currently offer something— speak up, and Sarah and Kat will brainstorm together and come up with a solution for you and your educational needs!

Is there ever such thing as relevant content on our podcast?  Sometimes, but this definitely isn't one of them.  Once again from the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit 2018, Justin is joined by an all star line-up of conversationalists— Drs. John Landers (The Worm), Mike Freimuth (The Nighthawk) and Flash Davies (The Flash).  After kicking things off with a shot of Fireball, these guys dive into some meaningful discussion of the use of bidets and going commando.  It's always a party when The Worm decides to show up— and this episode won't disappoint!  Enjoy, friends!

Kicking off the first day of the Voices of Dentistry Podcast Summit 2018 with Tiger Safarov, who is pretty the epitome of The American Dream.  What so many immigrants want in life is to come to America where they have the freedom to build something for themselves, for their own lives, for their families.  It's definitely not easy, but as Tiger has shown, if you have the drive and are willing to hustle 24/7, The American Dream isn't some far fetched idea.

Tiger’s journey in America began when he emigrated from his home country of Russia to the United States in 2005. At the start, Tiger began learning English while driving to work and singing along to Frank Sinatra. With a strong drive to succeed, he started in his early years working multiple jobs during the day and attending night classes at the local community college. A few years later in 2007, at the age of 22, Tiger founded Siegel Construction while pursuing his bachelor’s degree in Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Over the years, Siegel Construction became one of the premier dental and medical design-build firms in Chicago with the aspiration to continue growing throughout the Midwest.

In early 2015, Tiger successfully transitioned from Siegel Construction and today the company continues to thrive and achieve big goals. An entrepreneur at heart, Tiger is currently developing another startup in the dental industry.

ZenSupplies set out in the beginning of 2016 with a simple, yet bold mission: to forever change the dental industry through audacious innovation. And although we may be young, we couldn't be more excited about our chances of one day achieving it.

Our vision is to build an exceptional company with a vibrant soul where everyday, something special is being built. We dream of being a place where people genuinely love to work, and are always motivated to go the extra mile. Equally, we dream of building a product that our customers absolutely love - not just because it's "easy to use", but because of how it changes their lives. Clearly, we do a lot of dreaming here at ZenSupplies. After all, every great thing begins with a dream.

Known internationally for his experience in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Gary Radz is respected by local celebrities who come to him for a dazzling smile, as well as dental institutes in the US and abroad who call upon him to teach their dentists how to perform the newest procedures in cosmetic dentistry. His career as a dentist showed a brilliance in the field, and through his steadfast dedication in creating the best smiles possible for all his patients, he has earned a position of respect among other dental colleagues who call him a “dentist’s dentist.” Dr. Radz has been listed in 5280 Magazine as one of “Denver’s Best Dentists.” His experience in dentistry has been recognized by local and national media, and he has had the privilege of being interviewed by the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, the Boulder Camera, the Charlotte Observer, Wild Blue Yonder, and Parenting Magazine. Dr. Radz has been asked to be a contributing editor to Denver’s BLOOM and SHINE magazines. Additionally, he has appeared on WBTV and Denver’s “9News.”

Over the past 20 years, Dr. Radz has presented at many regional, national, and international meetings. To date, he has given over 800 presentations in nine countries on four continents.

Upon graduation from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, Dr. Radz continued his education by completing two postgraduate residency programs. In the field of dentistry, this sets him apart because the residencies require an enormous commitment and considerable talent. In fact, his abilities as a dentist shined so brightly that he became the chief resident of both programs: the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at the University of North Carolina and the General Practice Residence program at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago.

He relocated to Denver in 1999 after practicing in Charlotte, North Carolina, for nine years. When he moved here, he immediately focused his practice on cosmetic dentistry and continued taking advanced courses to learn more.

He has served as the editor-in-chief of Mentor and ACEsthetics magazines. In 2003 and 2013, he was the chairman of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s annual scientific meeting, responsible for the educational format of over 2000 of the world’s most dedicated cosmetic dental experts. In 2008 and 2012, he was program chairman for the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics annual meeting.

Dr. Radz has also developed a reputation as an excellent photographer. His photography is used by manufacturers and dental laboratories for promotion and education. Many photographs on this website were taken by Dr. Radz, and they feature patients of his practice. Dr. Radz’s photography has made the cover of several dental journals, including the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Because of his long experience in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Radz began to share his knowledge by teaching dental courses. For the last 20 years, Dr. Radz has lectured internationally on cosmetic dentistry. He has also served as an instructor for the Institute for Advanced Studies in Esthetic Dentistry, Ross Nash Seminars, and the Aesthetic Advantage programs. He was invited to become an instructor for prestigious Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. Dr.Radz is currently an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry in the Department of Restorative Dentistry, where he is helping with the cosmetic dentistry courses for third- and fourth-year dental students. He has been a trainer for dental manufacturers, to educate other dentists on how to use new materials and equipment properly. For the 10 years, Dr. Radz served on the REALITY Publishing Editorial Board, which evaluates new materials and equipment in dentistry, then publishes the results to help dentists and their patients benefit from the latest in dental technology. For the past 8 years he has worked with Catapult as a product evaluator and as a mentor to dentists looking to get into dental education.

Well vested in the professional dental community, Dr. Radz is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Metro Denver Dental Society, and Colorado Prosthodontic Society.
