The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. Richard Low joined Alan at Voices of Dentistry and the meeting was closing down. Richard was into dental podcasts early. He helped the one and only Dr. Howard Farran create one of the biggest dental podcast phenomena back in the mid 'oughts and then created the gigantic "Shared Practices Podcast" which has changed countless young dentists' lives!

They talk about why it's OK to give your best stuff away for free on podcasts (spoiler: it's because it's REALLY hard to implement stuff without help). Some of the highlights:

  • Richard and Al's go to podcast listens
  • What's the BEST time to have a hygiene appointment if you don't want to have dental work done?
  • How did Richard "burn the boats" on all-on-4?
  • All the things that Al doesn't want to do (and how important it is to know that)
  • Is Al going to retire and work in a prison?
  • The moment you know that the tooth is coming out
  • Not every feeling is an important one, not every thought is a good one
