Economic Civil War

Listen to Economic Civil War

As Joel Katlin says "Our national divide is usually cast in terms of ideology, race, climate, and gender. But it might be more accurate to see our national conflict as regional and riven by economic function. The schism is between two ways of making a living, one based in the incorporeal world of media and digital transactions, the other in the tangible world of making, growing, and using real things.”

This episode deals with the upcoming Economic Civil War

Divided Government & Demographics

Listen to Divided Government & Demographics

We are seeing the signs that when a single political party has little opposition in its legislatures, very bad things (in policy) occur.  The poster-child in California.  Terrible abuses of power are occurring and those seeking to relocated to such places (as defined by states and counties) should be forewarned.  Hawaii is another great example of bad things on the horizon.

Episode 75 – Shane Simmons of Crimson Media on Dental Practice Marketing

Listen to Episode 75 – Shane Simmons of Crimson Media on Dental Practice MarketingRob and Paul were happy to host Shane Simmons from Crimson Media to discuss how dentists can grow their practice and stand out in competitive marketplaces through digital marketing. Shane is the founder and CEO of Crimson Media, a company based in Fishers, Indiana which helps dental practices attract new patients using online marketing. He is an expert storyteller and two-time Emmy Award winner. With his innovative storytelling techniques, Shane helps clients “build freedom in their practice.” Many potential patients are reluctant to visit the dentist because they are afraid of uncomfortable procedures or have had bad experiences at prior dentists. Rob, Paul, and Shane discuss how dentists can transform these expectations and attract new patients by sharing positive experiences using digital storytelling techniques such as testimonial videos. These techniques help practices show what makes them unique and how they have improved their patients’ lives. The Amigos also discuss the importance of omnipresent marketing. Prior to deciding which practice they should visit, patients seek information from several sources including family and friends, social media, online directories, and the practice’s website. In order to grow their practice, dentists should build name recognition and form relationships with potential patients by marketing on all these numerous platforms. Finally, Shane breaks down the importance of search engine optimization (SEO) in attracting new clients. He explains the three key elements necessary for a practice’s website to appear at the top of search results. Practices who implement these tactics consistently find themselves generating greater website traffic and expanding their business. Listeners who want to learn more about Shane or Crimson Media can visit www.crimsonmediagroup.com or email info@crimsonmediagroup.com.

 Dental Realist Podcast

We (Ryder Waldron DDS, Marcus Neff DDS, and Troy Stevens DDS) are the hosts and producers of the Dental Realist Podcast (www.dentalrealist.com), where we discuss real-life dentistry in an honest and relatable way. The Dental Realist Podcast is unlike any other dental podcast. As three practicing dentists we have learned many things we wish we'd known before dental school graduation. The Dental Realist Podcast can also be found on iTunes, Libsyn, and Dentaltown.com. We are also the authors of "So You Want To Be A Dentist?" and "So Now You're A Dentist?", books aimed at helping future, new, and experienced dentists. We offer unique and honest insight into what it takes to be a successful dentist. Dental school teaches you how to perform dental treatment, but it doesn't teach you how to run a dental practice, manage a full staff and patients, or deal with the financial pressures of dentistry. We are here to give you the head start we wish we'd had. You can find our books on lulu.com and amazon.com.

Listen to Written UnWritten Rules Frodo & the CDC and Throwing Axes. OYF-138

Hello fellow OYFers and OYFal Hygienists, Thank you for joining us on another nonsensical episode. This marks week one of the Camper Chronicles Sandy's adventure in roughing it , boon docking if you will, while her dream home is being built. We were just on an episode of A Tale of Two Hygienists. Some people say we copied their style and the truth is the only thing our podcasts have in common is that we both have a guy and a girl RDH as co-hosts. Here at OYF we don't believe in cutting edge education , professionalism or standards. We believe in laughing at ourselves, having fun and try not to take life too seriously. Theres room for everyone and we were excited to be guests on the Original RDH podcast ATOTH. (link in the description). Thanks again for listening we really appreciate it, don't for get to like share and subscribe, Get and try an AutoFlosser and if you love it tell your patients about it.

Have a great week and go AutoFloss yourselves

Love Carlos and Sandy Lee

Dr. Tom Jackson and the Auto Flosser. OYF-135

Listen to Dr. Tom Jackson and the Auto Flosser. OYF-135

This week we are excited to introduce you all to Dr. Tom Jackson and his much needed invention the Auto Flosser. He has figured out how to assist the patient effectively clean and maintain expensive fixed bridges, Dental Implant abutments and around Orthodontic wires. Not only is the name vaguely familiar to your favorite Podcast, the device is very easy to use and almost makes flossing fun. Let's be honest, patients don't floss as much as we'd like them to. For those that can't or won't you can help them help themselves and protect their investments, appearance and health. If you want to know more about the Auto Flosser or learn about the Ambassador program set up for dental professionals click the links below.

Between all the dental talk we revisit the mirror controversy, reminisce about childhood toys and learn about making coffee with an egg. Who knew? I looked it up and it's actually a thing touche' Doc, I thought you made that up.

Thank you all for listening and thanks Dr. Tom for hanging out with us. Now if you don't mind please go floss yourselves and get an Auto Flosser in your patients hands. Have a great weekend.

Love Carlos and Sandy Lee

Monkey Urine, Broken Mirrors and Medical Emergencies. OYF-134

Listen to Monkey Urine, Broken Mirrors and Medical Emergencies. OYF-134

Hello OYFologists and welcome to episode 134. First off, we are excited that today is Sandy Lee's 7th Anniversary of being Cancer free! Congratulations to my Co-host and Sister from another Mister, Stay healthy!! We start off with some hypothetical monkey type scenarios, making hungry decisions and what not to do when fruit shopping. Movies reviews, and a debate of which is better... going to a potentially covid infested theater and spend some $$$ or staying home and watching the same movie in the comfort and safety of your own home for a small flat fee. Will Carlos and Sandy Lee be able to overcome their differences? Will Sandy Lee come to her senses and become responsible with her movie watching addiction? Who knows? Either way we are working with some new sponsors and will be bringing you some amazing new product news in the very near future.
