    Richard Heend Created the Internet...kind of (AME076)

    Richard Heend Created the Internet...kind of (AME076)

    The beginning of seventh grade. That's when the Rich and Al story started.


    Al has been friends with Richard Heend for more than 35 years. Which makes me feel super old. Rich had computers long before people normally had computers. This is where Al's fascination with computers and being "online" started.

Thanks, Alan!

Alan and I met years ago in either Salt Lake City or Chicago. We share not only a profession but a Recovery lifestyle! I find the AME very entertaining and informative. Unlike some other Dental podcasters, Alan doesn’t take himself too seriously. He sees the humor in our profession and loves talking about it. He has no problem talking about the the goofy things in his life and encourages all of us to do the same! Thanks, Alan! Your comic relief can bring a smile to my face even during hectic work days! Sláinte!

Behind the scenes with one of dentistry preeminent podcasters

A little more laid back, a little more spice. Nice view behind the curtain with Dr Alan Mead as he interviews people and discusses topics that he finds interesting in today’s dental experience. Plus he’s got probably the greatest voice for podcasting of any dentist.

AME

The Alan Mead Experience is like a good church for dentists and dental professionals. Informative and introspective, keeps you in touch with the emotional side of dentistry and your humanity. Dentistry isn’t just a business, it’s also people helping people.
