Marino Dan ,

These guys are great!

Highly recommend The Dental Amigos! Where ever you are in your dental career Paul and Rob have the experience to navigate you to making the best possible decision. Thanks Guys!

Paul "Dr. Nacho" Goodman ,

Can't stand the host

Man, Paul Goodman is just annoying. He is in love with his whole nacho branding schtick. If you are a pre-dent or dental student - just ignore anything to do with dental nachos and the dental amigos. They're taking advantage of you and giving bad advice.

Jessh719 ,

Eye-opening truths in the dental industry!

This podcast has opened my eyes to the long journey ahead in my dental career as I get ready to start school this upcoming year, and how to best prepare myself for success! Helping predents, dental students, BADs, MADs, and more... well worth the listen!
