The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. August De Oliveira joins Jason and Alan to talk about dental implants, writing books, DentalTown, 3D printing, CEREC, Facebook groups and claiming to invent stuff that was really just you buying a 3D printer on Amazon. August is one of our favorite guests and we finally got him for a full, hilarious hour! From our early days together on DentalTown to August's conquering of the stage at Voices of Dentistry, this wide ranging interview has something for EVERYONE!
