The Very Dental Podcast Network

Back in 2016 we brought together several practice owners to talk about how they viewed the coming DSO trend. Seven years later, how did we do? Were our predictions right on? Way off? This episode features Al, Dr. Jason Lipscomb, Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Frank Clayton and the one and only Dr. Tarun "T-Bone" Agarwal!

Here are the show notes from back in 2016:

This special episode features an entertaining and informative "all Brain Trust" look at dental support organizations (DSOs) and how they're affecting dentists in the real world.

Jason and Alan are joined by Dr. Frank Clayton, Dr. Tarun Agarwal and Heartland dentist Dr. Tammy Bailey to talk candidly about DSOs and their effects on the dental marketplace! You'll hear:

  • Tbone's theory on who should sell a practice to a DSO and who shouldn't
  • Tammy talks about life as a Heartland dentist 
  • Frank explains market segmentation in his own special way
  • Jason and Alan marvel at the fact that we get these cool people to continue to come on the podcast
