Celebrating 200 Episodes and Answering Your Questions


Milestones in life are always something to be proud of. After all, you only get to achieve a milestone once in your lifetime. So, this 200th episode is going to be different. Instead of having a guest or a “how-to” episode, today will be more about the person behind your favorite dental podcast host.


Is there anything I regret doing or not doing? Where are we now in our practice in the time of Covid-19? What are some of the prevailing myths about me and the truth behind them?


Today, I celebrate our 200th episode. I share some of the things in my life that I don’t get to talk about in public. I discuss some of the moments I wish had gone differently in my life and the moments I don’t mind repeating. I explain how our practice survived during the crash of 2008 and how we are surviving this pandemic. I also describe why your unhappy patients are more likely to change the way you run your practice.
