This week Russell interviews Dr. Nolan Andrews. Nolan owns Main Street Implant and Family Dentistry in El Dorado, KS right outside of Wichita. He talks about his initial dreams of moving down from Nebraska and starting up a DSO, but that quickly fell apart as he realized that he just wanted to own one office. He worked with Mr. Dan Giroux for negotating his contract to buy his current office.
Russ met Nolan last year at Pathways and both share a love of technology. Nolan shares how he's implemented August D'Oliveria's course from Pathway into his office for his All on X cases. While August doesn't teach that specific course anymore, you can find out more about his course at the MOD institute which are fantastic as well.
Finally we talk about the fun of owning a dental office and how Nolan trying to shoo away a meth head lead to him discovering embezzlement in his office.
Russell and Clint discuss marketing, future CE courses and hopes the future.
Sunny Pahouja, who runs the Dental Investment Group on Facebook, joins Clint and Russell to talk about current market trends, inflation, where and how to invest your money, how to appreach spendign money in your practice and why Ohio State likes to emphasize the "THE" in their name so much.
This week Russ and Clint talk with Dr. John Pasicznyk who is a dentist in Naples, FL who runs an implant focused office. We talk about JP's journey from owning five dental offices and the awfulness of that to being a partner at a DSO focused on AoX and how much more he enjoys Florida over the midwest. We also talk about the craziness about how he learned how to do zygomatic implants. They involve an Italian company, a bank wire, and trip to Brazil.
If you want to learn zygomas though, the information for the oral surgeon we talk about in the show is
Joao Baptista Ilha Filho and his Whatsapp number is +55 44 99857-8788
He will hopefully be on in an upcoming episode.
Finally Russ and Clint pepper JP with other implant questions to round out the episode.
After the end song, JP and Clint talk about one of the cases JP did when he was in Brazil. It is pretty crazy.
