The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan has a chance to talk with Dr. Buddy Mopper, Dr. Dennis Hartlieb, Dr. Corky Willhite and Dr. Bob Margeas (among others) at the AACD in Chicago!

The Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's annual meeting was held in Chicago a few weeks ago and Cosmedent was there in full force! They do a lot of amazing hands on courses at the meeting and we got to sit down and talk to some of their instructors between classes! We spoke to Dr. Buddy Mopper about the history of the AACD and where Cosmedent fit into it along with some of the latest and greatest things from Cosmedent. Then we talked with Dr. Dennis Hartlieb about all the amazing stuff he's up to, including his online hands on training course (Dental Online Training) and where he's going with that. Then we talked to Dr. Corky Willhite who told us what the AACD has meant to him over the years as well as his unique smile design techniques. Lastly we sat down with Dr. Bob Margeas and his friend Dr. Marcos Vargas, a researcher and clinical instructor at the University of Iowa! There's a lot here...something for everyone!
