The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan welcomes Jeff Gladnick from Great Dental Websites to the Very Dental Podcast! Jeff last joined the show in 2016 and it turns out that websites, SEO and practice marketing have changed quite a bit! Who knew? Some topics they discussed:

  • The recent AADOM meeting and what it was like to get back to a dental meeting after COVID
  • Jeff’s harrowing COVID experiences and what our friends down under are experiencing now
  • Thoughts on the virus, vaccines and mandates
  • What is “Great Dental Websites” and why are they different?
  • Content Management software and why it matters 
  • What’s wrong with WordPress? Webflow?
  • Design and why dentists shouldn’t DIY
  • What’s new/different/important in SEO?
  • Reviews are important, they’re part of “local” strategies...not organic
  • Jeff doesn’t recommend blogging!
  • How do you know what you need for dental marketing? How do you know what to spend?
  • Talk with referrals!
  • Don’t let your people do black hat!
  • Are you
  • Why can’t you just use the Google landing page?
  • Are reviews REALLY bringing the people in? You need to ask!
  • Why do patients like you? It’s probably not what you think!

The Very Dental Podcast Network is brought to you by our friends at Microcopy Dental. Here are 3 reasons that you should check out Microcopy Dental:

  1. Their Instagram posts are hysterical. Dental marketing is usually cheesy and appeals to the lowest common denominator. Microcopy Dental posts legitimately funny stuff on their Instagram account!
  2. Microcopy makes a wide variety of single use carbides, diamonds and polishers. Such a wide variety that their catalog reminds me of an encyclopedia. But with better pictures.
  3. Microcopy dental makes it so you’ll never have to experience that “dull bur” feeling ever again. A new bur. Every. Single. Time.

The Very Dental Podcast Network is also brought to you by the fine folks at Zirc. The first time I knew anything about Zirc was a LONG time ago. I tried the Zirc Crystal HD mirror and it’s wrecked me on any other mirror ever since. If you want a dental mirror that reminds you of using an HD TV, you should check out Zirc’s Crystal HD mirror. It comes as a replacement head for any mirror handle you already use or as a single piece. Either way, it will change the way you see everything for the better.

Cosmedent is here for you! If you aren’t using a microfilled composite (and let’s be honest, you probably aren’t), I can guarantee that it makes anterior composite dentistry easier, better and more fun. The handling and polishability of Cosmedent’s Renamel Microfill must be experienced to understand the major difference it makes! Go check out Renamel Microfill at
