This week Russell interviews Dr. Robert Hubbard and returning guest Dr. Brad Keener the president and president-elect, respectively, of the Flying Dental Association. We start out the interview with Erin's mom but end up discussing the history of the FDA, how two "competing" dentists wind up being the head of the FDA, and finish up with some HR discussions. We also talk about their amazing upcoming continuing education courses that everyone is invited to join. Find out more information at www.FlyingDentists.org.
Russell Schafer talks with Dr. Nakul Rathi after SmileCon 2022. While this was the last interview he did of the weekend, he still has two more that will be released in the next few weeks. Nakul owns an implant company and teaches implant placement in Houston, Texas at Get Implant. We talk about his journey from India to New York where he studied under the illustrious Dr. Tarnow and then went to The Ohio State University to study Prosthodontics. We discuss the importance of trying to make implants affordable for all of our patients whether they live in the US or in India.
So we decided to make a mid week episode as Clint had some stuff he wanted to talk about. We share some beers over Riverside.FM and discuss random topics about whatever was on our mind for the past hour. The show
So Russell just got back from SmileCon 2022 in Houston. This is actually his second interview of four that he did there, but this one required much less editting than his first one.
This week Russell talks with the co-founders of PreTeeth AI (Bill Chou and Dr. Sylvie Liu). Preteeth AI is a software that makes a smile analysis and smile simulation software and they offer a one month free trial. Go check out their product at www.PreTeeth.com. It's a pretty cool piece app.
Also Dr. Alex Lin who is an ortho resident at Penn was on the podcast as well. Dr. Lin and Dr. Liu are both dentists who trained in Taiwan and we discuss at length what being a dentist in Taiwan is like compared to dentistry in the United States.
Finally, Bill was kind enough to share a song that his band plays which is the music for the week. To see the live performance, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKsimznyk4w
Also, every dentist should have this in front of their office.
This week Clint and Russ interview John Unger from Cincinnati, Ohio. We discuss his recent big move and upgrade for his office and what it is like to be the third owner of a dental office. Clint explains what it is like to do comprehensive dentistry in a meat packing plant and Russell whines about his orange drink of a beer.
