Hey, ambitious dentists,

I have a really special treat for you today. Today, I’m on the other side of the mic yet again with Dr. Panks Dhingra.

Dr. Dhingra and I recently became friends, when he reached out to learn a little more about the “dental podcasting community.”

And he has recently launched a really cool platform called Podcasts of Dentistry. Basically, it’s like a search engine where you can find all of your favorite podcasts by dental professionals by searching their name on the site.

In addition to being a really great search engine of the best dental podcasts around, Dr. Dhingra has listed the many books and resources your favorite podcasts recommend. I know it’s going to be a great resource now and in the future.

Dr. Dhingra asked to interview me and I happily said yes.

We cover a TON in our conversation, from podcasting to my accounting business, to the state of the dental community. I think you’ll really enjoy this interview posted with his permission.

Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode

    • The lessons I’ve learned from producing over 90 episodes for my podcast.
    • How I became involved in the dental industry as a CPA.
    • Why podcasting is the best way to improve as a public speaker.
    • And some of the tools and resources I use for my podcast and business.

And much more...

Hey ambitious dentists, 

I recently had a great time being on the other side of the mic with Alan Mead on the Alan Mead Dental Experience podcast. Alan Mead likely doesn't need much of introduction, as he's one of the most respected people in the dental industry and is a cohost of the very popular podcast DentalHacks as well.

As we near over 100 episodes published here on SYDP, it's always fun to be in the hot seat for a chance. Alan and I cover a wide range of topics such as discussed productivity, my life as a "dental accountant" and how both Alan and I are both terrible at coming up with names for businesses. I really enjoyed being on the show, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode

    • What I've learned from being a dental account, and the biggest problems I see dentists face.
    • Why I started the Start Your Dental Practice Podcast
    • The power of the "podcasting community" in the dental space and why it matters
    • How podcasting has changed my life both personally and professionally
    • My experience with voices of dentistry.

And much more...

Hey ambitious dentists,

I have a super short episode for you today, but I think the message is incredibly powerful.

Today I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on the power of vacation. It's no secret that building a successful dental practice requires a ton of time and energy, but I genuinely believe taking time off can be a powerful tool to not only recharge but also come back fresh and motivated when you return.

So if you are one of those dentists who could use a little break, I think you'll get a lot out of today's episode.

Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode

  • Why it's so important to take time off... especially if you think you don't have the time
  • What to do on vacation to come back refreshed and ready to take action
  • How vacation can help you solve problems or issues that have kept you stuck.
  • The permission you need to finally take that much-needed break... ;-)

And much more...

Hey ambitious dentists,

I hope you had a relaxing Labor Day weekend and were able to put your extra day off to good use. I know I really enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
 
Today I wanted to share a self-hosted episode where I talk about the differences between a general CPA and a dental CPA, and how to choose which one is right for you.
 
Over the last few months, I've noticed a slight uptick in the amount of emails I've received asking for which route to take.
 
Being a dental CPA myself, I may be slightly biased, but in all honesty whether or not you use a general CPA or a dental CPA comes down to a lot of factors.
 
I put this episode together to share my thoughts on the pros and cons of each and how to make the best choice for your practice.
 
I had a ton of fun putting this episode together for you, and I hope you find it helpful.
 

Here are a few things you'll discover in today's episode

  • Why there is no one size fit all for your CPA needs and how to choose the one right for you.
  • Common misconceptions about both general and dental CPA's
  • What I've Learned From Being a general CPA and a dental CPA
  • The pros and cons of both general and dental CPA's./li>And much more....
