The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason and Alan are joined by two dental social media rock stars, Dr. David Rice of IgniteDDS and Irene Iancu (aka: toothlife.irene) of the Tooth or Dare podcast!

David knows young dentists. He's an educator and coach and spends a lot of his time helping new dentists find their way after dental school. His message is a lot more hopeful than what you hear from some people and his reach is really huge! David also spent some time talking about 3M's new Xerostomia Relief Spray. Dentistry hasn't done a great job for our patients with dry mouth and 3M has made a product that can really make a difference for them!

Irene Iancu is a hygienist, educator, social media maven and entrepreneur! She's got a great podcast called "Tooth or Dare" and she'll be podcasting live at the Voices of Dentistry with her new co-host. She's fascinating on a lot of levels, but we spent a lot of time explaining how she, as a hygienist, is opening a dental practice! If you've ever wondered how a dental practice owned by a "nondentist" can work, this is really interesting stuff! Apparently delays in dental office building affect everyone!
