Zach Meiners and Jason Lipscomb go Totally Oral at VoD 2023. Just like any good superhero movie, Jason gives the origin story of Voices of Dentistry and how it all came together. Jason and Zach discuss insurance companies and how dentists could take the power back if everyone joined forces like the Wonder Twins.
Zach laments how getting his dream car, a lowered GEO Metro, didn't give him the street cred he was seeking. If only he had taken up the keytar like Jason did.
Russell and Clinton talk to Assen Dobrikov, owner of Dani Dental Studio. Listen and find out how he went from Eastern Europe to the Grand Canyon State.
This week Russ and Clint talk with Paul Lowry about dental membership plans. Paul created The Dental Menu to help a practice create dental membership plans with common sense bookkeeping techniques that offer an alternative to adjusting production/collections, while also adding ways to build value with your patients. While Russ will admit he was skeptical of Paul initially as we've heard a lot of dental membership companies with similar services, Russ was pretty impressed by the end of the interview and thought that Paul had some great points especially with the ideas from a business perspective. Give it a listen.
Russell Schafer and Clinton Timmerman find out just how soon-to-be Doctor Lisa Nelson makes her mark in the dental field and Doctor Kelsi Lewis discusses her scratch practice in Austin, Texas and how Texas is surprisingly behind the times in not letting hygienists anesthetize patients. The magical wonders of freeze dried Skittles is mentioned and everyone also wonders why Donald Ducks has no pants but puts a towel around his waste when stepping out of the shower.
This week Russ and Clint interview Dr. Lane Ochi. Lane discusses his "retirement" and how he is transitioning out of dentistry. We talk with him on debt, Fee For Service offices, Rolex ownership, and buying bikes. He educates us on planning for retirement and where he sees dentistry moving towards. Overall a great episode.
