We were pretty thrilled to get Bruce Campbell on the podcast for today's episode... No, not the 'Evil Dead' Bruce Campbell... The patent lawyer, Bruce Campbell!  Well, his first name is Dutro, but he's still Bruce Campbell to us, okay?!

Anyway, this episode is all about TRADEMARKING your practice and why it's an important investment to consider in order to give your brand, your practice, your business ultimate protection.  You're starting up your practice and you have a killer name, awesome logo, a kick ass slogan, etc.  How awful would it be when you decide to invest half a million dollars into your practice, you become more and more successful over time and then come to find out there's some OTHER dentist with the same name, a weak logo and a stupid slogan?  Well, you'd be sad to find out that

Bruce takes this opportunity to chat with us about the importance of trademarks and why you should hire a lawyer instead of doing it yourself.  He also talks a bit about how he came to be a patent and trademark lawyer.

Find out more about Bruce's services at www.campbell-ip.com

From Bruce Campbell, himself...

"I am an intellectual property attorney with over 20 years of experience handling a wide variety of legal matters. I have substantial experience litigating patent, trademark and copyright infringement matters in courts across the country, as well as advising clients across a broad range of businesses and technologies on matters involving the management of their intellectual property rights and assets.

Not only can I help you in enforcing your intellectual property rights or defending you in the event you are named as a defendant in a lawsuit, but I also can help you avoid being targeted as a defendant in a patent, trademark or copyright infringement dispute."

Bruce recently prepared a special trademark report and it is entitled "Five Trademark Mistakes Every Business Owner Absolutely Must Avoid," and provides vital information regarding trademark selection, registration and conflict avoidance.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this Report.  The Special Report can be found at this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwQwbNxYijxFVzJFbF9ZcmRRaU0/view?usp=sharing.

SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS

Get in touch with Bruce Campbell about trademarking your brand or practice and you will receive a 20% discount on his flat-rate services.  Why wait?  You have no excuse not to trademark yourself now!  E-Mail him at bruce@campbell-ip.com

Today marks episode number fifty on Dentists, Implants and Worms!  And to celebrate, we were graced with the presence of a certain WORM who hasn't joined us since episode fourteen.  We took this special episode as an opportunity to reflect on the previous fifty guests we've had on the show and tell The Worm about what he missed.  It's just us on this episode, folks, so prepare yourselves for something a little different!

Tonight's episode is titled: "Hacking The System During a Night Attack at Scam School Using Bizarre Magic" or simply, "BRIAN FREAKIN' BRUSHWOOD!"

That's right, folks, we hustled our way into getting the podcasting extraordinaire, Brian Brushwood in Studio 1-A with us for the latest episode.  If you don't know who he is, shame on you.  Go to YouTube and look up "Scam School" or "Hacking the System" or "Night Attack" — you know what?  Just Google Brian Brushwood and prepare to laugh your ass off... a lot.

To say Brian is a cool guy is an understatement.  He's pretty down to earth for being a hotshot podcast and YouTube celebrity, you know?  We talked about so many things in tonight's podcast that... well, I just can't really list them all because we zipped along.  Someone must have put something in our drinks to make us zip through these topics.

Justin did provide some free dental advice in a rapid fire dental consultation.  And it looks like there's something brewing for next June in South Dakota.  So, stay tuned, friends.

Here's a little, official, biography on Brian:

Host of Scam School for Discovery & Hacking The System for NatGeo. Two Billboard #1 comedy albums. Eats fire. Sticks nails in eyes. Jackass and...pro dancer?

That's all you really need.  Check him out.  His twitter handle is @shwood and his website is, you guessed it, http://www.shwood.com./

Thank you for being on the show, Brian!  I have a feeling we will be seeing you again sometime soon... perhaps... in studio next year?

Cheers!

What happens when Rally Week takes over Rapid City, South Dakota and two of three hosts are hardcore bikers?  Well, that means we fall behind on episodes.  Not on my watch though.  In this episode, I went rogue and decided to host this thing by myself.  Whether that's a good idea or not... it happened.  I did happen to drag a dental-related guest into the studio with me, so believe it or not, you will hear some relevant content!

In all seriousness, this was a fun podcast that gave a lot of insight into what ProSmiles Dental Studio does.  I had little to no idea that there was such an exceptional level of artistic talent when it came to making teeth right here in Rapid City.

John Watts is a great guy to work with.  His freelance work for our office here along with his full time sales and marketing work for ProSmiles is truly inspiring.  I won't go into too many details here... you'll just have to listen!

Check out ProSmiles Dental Studio at http://www.prosmilesdentalstudio.com/ if you are looking for a lab that will handle your case with sincere passion and superb craftsmanship!

Justin and Gabe (apparently 9am was too early for Jeff to make it) had a chance to speak to Tom Zgainer, CEO and Founder of America's Best 401k... a company that has reached notoriety due to the influence, support and leadership of Tony Robbins.  In this podcast, they discuss financial strategies and best practices for rescuing your retirement and planning for the best future possible.

Over the past 12 years, he has helped over 3000 companies establish a new or improved retirement plan. Working directly with plan sponsors, Tom and his team help create strategies and solutions for their retirement plans that meet both individual and corporate objectives.

It's time to start running your business like a celebrity and make some money doing it!  That's kind of the approach behind Josh Elledge's Public Relations enterprise, upendPR.com.  He claims that you can't just sit behind a computer and keyboard and expect your business to grow from there.  Sure that CAN happen— but you need to get out on your feet and EARN your public relations, your spotlight, your business, etc.  Here in Studio 1-A... we agree with him!

We had a fantastic hour long chat with Josh as he delved into his experiences in public relations, his own successes and failures as a business owner and, you have to listen for this reason alone, he gives us tons of FREE information on public relations.  And it's actually useful stuff!

Interestingly enough, Josh has another successful website that he is running.  It's called savingsangel.com and it's sole purpose is to help you reduce the cost of your grocery bill each month.  It's a really cool coupon blog that every household should check out.  Josh has had a crazy amount of success with this website!

Get ready to trade-in your dental drills for some dental lasers after listening to this episode!  We have Dr. Tim Kelly of Rapid City, SD in studio with us and he tells us all about why he loves dental laser technology when it comes to the treatment plans of several different areas of dental health.

Dr. Tim Kelly really loves lasers.  I mean, he really loves them!  Tim JUST opened a brand new dental clinic in the Rapid City area and you can visit his website at http://rushmoredental.com/

Tim and the gang discuss how lasers are used as an adjunct to dentistry, tooth preparation (THE SAFE PREPS without patient discomfort), treatment for periodontitis, implants with peri-implantitis vs mucositis, misconceptions, inadequate or over treatment of soft tissue, crown and bridge margins class V fillings, margins exposure or crown lengthening and when and why lab techs will love you.

From Rushmore Dental's website:

Tim Kelly, DDS, a graduate of Creighton University Dental School, has held a WCLI Mastership since 2004, and in 2007 completed ALD parts 1 and 2 AP. Dr. Kelly is also a member of the AGD, ADA, MDA, AASMD, and LVI. He has been using diode lasers since 1995, and WaterLase since 2002. Through 25 years in private practice, he has performed more than 30,000 WaterLase cavity preparations and over 15,000 laser soft tissue procedures, as well as using diode and WaterLase lasers in crown preparations, crown lengthening, and as an adjunct to periodontal treatment.

Since 2004, Dr. Kelly has worked with BIOLASE Research and Development as a chief clinical examiner and clinical trainer on both and diode and WaterLase laser systems. Dr Kelly was the CTO and a principal partner of LaserGenie, Inc., a manufacturing and distributor of dental lasers systems. He was also the CEO of Minnesota Laser Institute , a laser research and development company.

Over the years, Dr. Kelly has lectured at many national and regional dental conventions as well as Creighton University School of Dentistry, World Congress of Laser Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and other events on the use of lasers in dentistry and how they can improve patient treatment outcomes consistently in less time than conventional treatment.

Apparently it's Old School week on Dentists, Implants and Worms because our latest episode was essentially a University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry reunion with Justin and Dr. Grant Ritchey.  That's pretty much all I got for show notes on this one... this was all Justin and Grant!  Definitely check out Grant's podcast, The Prism, where he does the opposite of what we do on our podcast... deliver relevant, scientific content!

Thanks, Grant, for being a guest on our show!  And it was a lot of fun to listen to you guys talk some shop (and trash) about your times at OU.

From Dr. Ritchey's website:

I was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma and graduated from Norman High School in 1978. Following high school, I attended the University of Kansas, graduating in 1982 with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Biology. Although my father is a dentist, it was not in my original plan to become one myself; after all, I had to rebel and do my own thing, right? One problem with this plan was that I couldn't help but notice how much my dad enjoyed what he did, how he thrived on the relationships he developed with his patients over the years, and how much he enjoyed learning new things and changing people's lives. I decided I wanted the same fulfillment in my career, so I swallowed my pride, admitted my dad was right, and attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, graduating in 1986. Although it was somewhat painful to attend school with a bunch of Oklahoma Sooners, I survived and was able to purchase the Lawrence practice of Dr. John Albers soon after graduation.

From 1987 until 1999, I practiced in both Lawrence and Tonganoxie, dividing the time between them. Following the sale of my Lawrence practice in 1998, I have settled full time in Tonganoxie, a wonderful small town with great people. Although I don't live there, Tonganoxie feels like home to me.

Brandon Evert was kind enough to reach out and request to be on our show.  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.  He passwed with flying colors.

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!

Thanks for reaching out to us and for being a fan of our podcast, Brandion!  We'll keep 'em coming as long as you stay a listened!  Let us know if you need any sort of mentorship and we will be glad to help you out!

Ever heard of a dentist placing his own implant in his own mouth?  Well, prepare to have your minds blown— and probably cringe a little.  Daniel Hatch, DDS and Jerome Cha, DDS joined us in Podcast Studio 1-A for our latest episode.  Both were taking a continued education course from Justin over the weekend.  Dr. Hatch joins us from Montrose, Colorado and Dr. Cha joins us from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Dr. Cha is a passionate dentist practicing in Tulsa, but he is also a very passionate photographer.  He's quite good too!  He recently took a trip to Iceland, where he took some amazing photographs.  He goes into how he became interested in photography, the details that go along with it and why we should all have that one hobby that gets us out of the house and out of the office.

Alright, brace yourselves for this one.  Dr. Hatch is a great dentist, sure.  But he truly achieved notoriety due to his YouTube video of him placing an implant in his OWN MOUTH.  Crazy, right?  He goes into the story on our podcast so LISTEN TO HIS STORY FIRST AND THEN... You gotta check out this video of Dr. Hatch placing his own implant.  Check it out on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVKCFHgUikM

You ready for this one?  We had not only a very cool, laid back guy on the latest episode, but he just so happens to be a celebrity— a legit celebrity.  Check it out!

A direct quote from the bio section of Randy's Twitter handle: "Part of the hot Teen Mom 2 grandparent crew. By hot, I mean sweaty."  Oh, and he's a general detnist in Vermillion, South Dakota too.  But, we're obviously more interested in the fact that HE WAS ON MTV's TEEN MOM!!!!!!!

All joking aside, this was a really fun podcast that touched on the Teen Mom fame that Randy has experienced, but we also talked about his experience in dentistry and how he got wrapped up in this crazy world.  What's even better is that he was outside for this whole thing— made us very jealous since we were locked up in this sweaty podcast studio the whole time.

Fun fact: We were Randy's first podcast.  How special.  Here's what he had to say about it on Twitter: "My first appearance on a podcast. If you are into semi-unprofessional talk by dentists"  Semi-unprofessional talk by dentists is damn right, Houska!

You can, of course, watch Randy Houska and his daughter Chelsea on MTV's original series, Teen Mom 2.  If you are curious about Randy's dental practice, check it out by going to http://www.houskadental.com/

We can't thank you enough for taking time out of your lovely, quiet evening just to chat with the three stooges over here in Rapid City.  You have an inspiring story and a pretty darn successful practice!  We'll stay in touch for sure.  Come out for some pheasant hunting with us!

Cheers!

Today's special guest was none other than Dr. Snapchat himself, Dr. Daniel Rubinshtein— straight from Brooklyn, New York!  Dr. Rubinshtein is one of the most passionate and visionary dentists we have had the opportunity to have on our podcast.  He is a cosmetic dentist that has worked in New York and in Florida, but has recently gained notoriety for using Snapchat to broadcast his work to the masses.  We talk about some of the trends of social media and how it can make you, the dentist, all the more attractive to potential patients.

Dr. Rubinshtein graduated from the prestigious Yale University, where he completed his general practice residency. Dr. Rubinshtein also is a graduate of New York University College of Dentistry where he received his doctor of dental surgery degree. At NYUCD, Dr. Rubinshtein was a member of the Aesthetic Honors program where he displayed his artistic and keen eye for beauty. He won first place in the Empire State Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry smile makeover campaign, a prestigious recognition in the dental community, and placed among the top ranking dentists at the national American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Conference.

Dr. Rubinshtein’s desire to help others who are less fortunate has been apparent in his involvement with many charities from oral cancer to feeding the homeless. His time spent on several dental outreaches that served under privileged communities throughout the country, displays his genuine concern for not only the art of dentistry but also the importance of dental health. He also has been part of the growing and exceptional program LEAP, where Dr. Rubinshtein has been invited on numerous occasions to fly out to UCLA and be a mentor for students looking for leadership and motivation.

Dr. Rubinshtein was born to two parents who are dentists themselves. Thus, the innate ability is not only nature, but nurture as well. He developed a passion for dentistry at a very early age, growing up and learning alongside his parents in their Brooklyn dental practice. He would spend summers at their practice zealous to learn and please, and acquiring the dual ability of the meticulous craft of dental artistry and the gentle care patients need.

Check out Dr. Rubenshtein's beautifully crafted website at http://www.drrubinshtein.comyou can also send him an e-mail at mysmile@drrubinshtein.com.  You can find him on instagram @dr_rubinshtein and, of course, on Snapchat @drubinshtein !  Thank you so much for being a guest on our show, Dr. Rubninshtein.  We'll Snapchat you sometime!

Cheers!

We had the incredible pleasure of having Lieutenant Commander Stephen Johndreau join us straight from the Marine Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina for our recent podcast.  Topics include employment opportunities in the United States military, the current state of unemployment in this country, the challenges of finding good employees for your practice, a brief rant from Justin and the dangers of cat scratch fever.

Stephen has an amazing history with the United States Marine Corps. and his message is very inspirational!

Thank you so much, Stephen, for taking the time to join us on the show.  Fun fact: we originally had Stephen as a guest for our seventeenth episode but some unfortunate audio issues on our end rendered the episode intolerable to listen through.  The fact is that Stephen had way too important of a message and was way too good of a guest to toss to the curb, so we had to have him on again.  So, extra thanks goes to Stephen for being patient with us and coming back on the show.

If you have any questions concerning opportunities that may be available for you in the United States military, please feel free to e-mail Stephen at stephen_johndreau@hotmail.com.

This is the podcast we've all been waiting for!  We've been hyping this guest up for a few weeks now and finally, Erin Elliot, DDS has arrived.  We had such a blast with her and her partner-in-crime Bri Bove that we're going to go ahead and release two parts to this episode.  Yep, that's right... another two-part podcast! 

Dr. Elliott was out here in Rapid City, SD because she was teaching a course on sleep and how it relates to dentists.  She conducted several sleep studies while she was out here and we just had to take advantage and have her on the show!

Part Two will be a follow up after the course had completed.  You know, for some reflection, commentary and, of course, post-course drinks.

Thank you so much for being a loyal fan of our podcast and for being an amazing guest, Erin!  Let's do it again!

Feel free to e-mail Erin with any questions or inquiries at erinelliottdds@gmail.com

Dr. Cynthia K. Brattesani joined the worms in podcast studio 1-A for the latest podcast.  After meeting her and chatting with her via Skype, we can easily say Cynthia is our favorite Italian dentist.  She is a very successful dentist in the Bay Area— and we can totally see why!  Not only is she very knowledgeable, focused, driven— all of those make for a great dentist, of course.  But what really resonated with us is her quote, "Smile often and see what happens."  That is a great philosophy for a dentist to embrace.  For everyone to embrace, really.

It was a pleasure having Dr. Brattesani as our guest for this podcast.  We had so much fun getting to know her story!  Thank you, Cynthia!  Until next time—

From Cynthia's website, which can be found at http://www.drcynthiab.com/

Dr. Cynthia K. Brattesani, DDS, is fast becoming one of the best-known figures in the dental industry. She has written dozens of articles for professional journals and websites including Dental Economics, Dentistry Today, SideKick, Women's Dental Journal, and she is a frequent lecturer at conferences and dental schools on a variety of topics..

Dr. Brattesani received her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of California, San Francisco, in 1989, and joined the practice of her brother, Steven J. Brattesani in San Francisco and Dr. William van Dyk in the East Bay as an associate the same year.

After working as an associate for more than a decade, Dr. Brattesani opened her own practice in 2002, and it has become one of the fastest-growing dental practices in the Bay area since then.

She has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the American Dental Association's "Golden Apple" Award for Outstanding New Dentist Leader in 1996, and the U.S. Medal of Merit for outstanding public service for the City of San Francisco Earthquake. In 2015 she was honored with the UCSF 150th Anniversary Alumni Award.

She has served in many positions and remains an active member of The American Dental Association (ADA), the California Dental Association (CDA), and the San Francisco Dental Society (SFDS) of which she served as president. Very early in her career, she became a fellow of the American College of Dentists, the International College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchard Academy.

Dr. Brattesani’s passion is innovation serving on many advisory dental boards. Dedicated to the advancement of dentistry, she is a proud member of the Spear Education Faculty Club requiring hundreds of hour of continuing education.

In 2013 she was appointed to the Management Committee of CDA Cares -- managing a dental clinic providing millions of dollars of free dentistry to thousands of the undeserved population. Dr Brattesani was recently quoted in a local dental newsletter stating: “Volunteering for me is a matter of the heart. It offers gifts often disguising themselves in the actual work. It offers me a lesson of humility and the value of courage to make me stand in something that I truly believe in. Volunteering together for the common good allows me to recognize what is truly extraordinary in the world. And once you open your heart----there is no turning back."

In 2015, she was honored with the UCSF 150th Alumni Award, an honor of great distinction.
