The Alan Mead Experience
Summary: Alan Mead is a dentist with too much time on his hands and too much recording equipment in his basement! Each week he brings you entertaining and informative content featuring interesting dental people and the stories behind them. You'll hear "Dental School Horror stories," take a ride in the "Single Use Time Machine" and hear his co-hosts give you the "90 Second Perfect Pitch." It's all good fun for dentists and the people that love them!
Dr. Dawn Kulongowski joins Alan for a rousing "Dental School Horror Stories." Entertaining but also poignant...how is dental school different for men and women? Premier Solo Diamonds" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Premier Dental Productst
Dr. Alan Mead introduces the Alan Mead Experience Facebook group and the new sponsor of the AME, Premier Dental Products! Also, a frank discussion of open contacts and what do dentists do for their own dental care. Premier Dental Productst Mead's inlays
Dr. Ryan McCall does dentures. Lots and lots of dentures. And he does social media better than anyone else.
Alan goes solo to talk about some of the fantasies he has during his commute (don't worry, it's a family show) and how it's good that we're all human.
What do you do when you know your next day is full of nightmare patients and evil procedures? Dr. Arthur Volker knows...and dishes. Plus, a little on minimally invasive dentistry in 2017.
Dr. Grant Ritchey is the first podcaster that Alan ever knew. We discuss science communication, when science became controversial and where they each became skeptics. The Prism Podcast The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe The Dental Podcasting Incubator Science Based Dentistry
Dr. Tarun Agarwal joins Alan for a challenge...an entire podcast where dentistry is not discussed. And it's amazing! We discuss Tarun's time at the Pritikin Longevity Center where he's taking a good hard look at his physical and mental health and how to make his dental career and life longer and better. Pritikin Longevity Center
Dr. Bart Schultz joins the AME again to talk about that patient who you've been working on for months that shows up and asks, "what are we doing again?"
Alan talks about the recent flooding that's caused him to make some big shifts in podcasting schedules!
Dr. Brett Kessler was the president of the Colorado Dental Association and is helps dentists and team members struggling with addiction. Yet somehow we spent most of our time talking about marijuana. Weird, right? Skeptical Raptor reviews the science of medical marijuana (TL;DR version)
Dr. Zach Meiners joins Alan to talk about being a "regular Joe" dentist and the struggle of case acceptance. Also...both of these guys started their careers as associates with their dad. One of them stayed with dad and one of them struck off on their own. You'll hear the pros and cons of both!
Tiger Safarov came to the United States from Russia, and hit the ground running. He used to build dental offices and now he's trying to change the way that we buy dental supplies. 90 Second Perfect Pitch: Zen Supplies
Dr. Justin Short is a dentist, coach and real estate tycoon. You're going to like him and you're going to learn some stuff from him. We talk about how he produces so much in so little time and how he's been driven as an entrepreneur for as long as he can remember. 90 Second Perfect Pitch: The Lifestyle Practice
Boy do I have a story for you. It has nothing to do with dentistry, but I think it's worth a listen.
Dr. Paul Goodman wears many hats. Practice owner and clinical dentist, teacher, practice broker and perhaps most importantly...nacho enthusiast. He talks with Alan about his many jobs, the idea of creating a group practice that allows a clinician to focus on what they do best and how the job market is affecting dental students and new grads with their insane debt load.
