Customer Reviews

Moses Lake Dentist ,

Great podcast for any professional

Two of my favorite, no nonsense, common sense mastering people in dentistry have come together to share their trials and tribulations of daily practice life. That’s followed by usable ideas of healthy coping mechanisms.

cruffler ,

Great podcast minus the plugs

One of my favorite newer dental podcasts. I can relate to a lot of the content and it's nice to know there are others going through the same thing.

Jeffappreview ,

Just what dental professionals really need!

As a human being first and a dentist second, this podcast consistently reminds me that this is exactly what our profession needs. People willing to go out of their self-imposed isolation and talk about what really matters to us having a meaningful life: our mental health. Thank you Dawn and Alan!
