The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan are once again joined by Dr. Rob Ritter! Rob had just stepped off the main stage at the Spear Summit and sat down to talk about integrity marketing and really good suits. Some highlights include:

  • How can dentists harness social media in an authentic way?
  • How should your team be involved with social media marketing?
  • Authenticity is about showing what kind of human you are, not what kind of veneers you do
  • How has social media changed dentistry?
  • Why should you log where your phone calls/new patients are coming from
  • Why does he love Dental Intel and other dashboards?
  • How important are websites in 2019?
  • Your Google My Business page and how to use it
  • Why you shouldn't wait on new technology
  • Is CBCT standard of care for endo?

If someone is printing, scanning, even retyping or copying and pasting then it’s not truly paperless. YAPI was the first and the best at paperless.  Why don’t you go check the menu at It’s a funny name but serious software!
