Loyal listener for years

I have listened to a tale of two hygienists for years! I find the high quality information to be essential for to help me guide my continuing education and stay abreast of emerging science and trends in the industry. The topics have lead me to learn more about implant care, myofunctional therapy, patient communication, infection control, motivational interviewing and so much more! I love that many of the episodes have CE credits available and that I can listen in my own time and my own way. I am grateful for Michelle and my my fellow west coast guygienist Andrew for the work that goes into creating amazing content with a fun delivery.

Best dental podcast!

I have been listening to your podcast for a few years and love it! Well rounded information and amazing guests! It recharged my desire to be a myo-functional therapist and put me in touch with Sarah Hornsby.

Learning continues

Hi, Covid -19 has had me out of work since early March, I am thankful to be home and have some time to spend with my family until it is safe to go back to work. Along with helping my son with schoolwork and catching up with projects I never had time for, I also plug in to my favorite dental podcast to keep my mind in the field, so when it’s time to return to work, I will be ready, and educated. Thank you guys for always keeping your episodes current and keeping me in the “dental now”. !!!
