The Very Dental Podcast Network

How many hours do you spend at the office? Shouldn't you make it the best place to work that you possibly can? That's what we talk with Dr. Michael Unthank about. What's the most efficient type of operatory? What should you store in the operatories? Which is better, new build or designing in an existing space? How much should you expect to pay per square foot? Why are remodels so difficult? We cover a lot of ground in episode 122 with Dr. Unthank!

The Brain Trust continues their conversation about office design. Dr. Lance Timmerman, Dr. Melissa Zettler, Dr. Josh Carpenter and Dr. Drew Byrnes join Alan to talk about what's good and bad about office design. Drew tells a leaky plumbing horror story and the Brain Trust does a lightning round about great features to have in your office!
