#POD Strives to be a Long Form Podcast in Dentistry inspired by Tim Ferris/Joe Rogan (They could be an hour long or two or more!) with the idea of exploring what makes people successful, what is the mindset, what is their learning process, their thought process, why they do what they do, why they did what they did, happiness and struggles that they faced throughout their journey of life until now.

Today we have a very special guest who is not only a dentist, but an author, a certified professional Co-active coach and a Business Consultant. She is Dr. Bita Saleh.  Today we will talk about what guest calls it as the Fearless Way Method and I was referring to it in the podcast as the Well referred dentist method, the book by the same name- well referred dentist by Dr. Bita Saleh  To understand what we talk today, please keep an open mind and a little patience. Tt does get easier to understand as we move forward. I would agree that it is a pretty dense podcast embarking on energy psychology, dreams, intuition, fears, anxiety, limiting beliefs and so on. We go in detail about this matter and discuss the veracity usefulness both in a "left-brain statistical kind of away" and "right brain imagination kind of way". You would probably have to read her book to get the full understanding but I've done the work for you and I tried to ask all the questions that my audience might ask.  We talked about implementing this method in your office, what to do, how to do it and of course  its usefulness.  As usual Tim Ferris Inspired Questions brings out the hidden gems about the guest and the process of course.  We talked about TM, her morning ritual, what other changes did she observe by doing TM for all these years and so on  It is indeed a different kind of a podcast since it tries to expand your horizon in a very powerful way. There is some food for thought and indeed some fun moments. I was not sure if I would be able to ask relevant questions but she is an empath and at the end it was indeed a rewarding experience.  please enjoy doctor Dr. Bita Saleh from Well Referred Dentist.  As usual All links and podcasts are available at and So without further Ado doctor Bita Saleh

Thank you for tuning into #POD-- Podcasts of Dentistry. This is session #21.  All notes of the podcasts can be accessed at Today I have Dr. Steven Mautner. We actually call him "Witty Mauty"   Dr. Mauty has what I call as "Recession Proof No Nonsense Practice".   We talk all about his successful practice model in detail in this podcast This practice model is not for everybody but it certainly is one of the successful models of practicing dentistry.  Hear his story and philosophy of how he runs such a practice.  Dr. Mauty is like a rebel. and he proves that by sharing all such interesting stories.  He shares so many funny quips throughout the podcast that you will laugh all about it.  We really had a lot of fun . We even talked about having a Dental Roast someday. I know who we would invite to be roasted but lets leave that for another podcast.  He is an outspoken dentist and contends that actually should use a lot of common sense to solve the common problems.  He is very vocal about his divorce, mistakes he did and what fellow dentists should keep in mind before getting hitched or even after.  He shares all the practical advice not only for dentistry but also personal and common life situations  and so on.  He certainly talks about his book with Dr. Emily Letran Session #19.. The Book is called No Nonsense Dentistry..  He is the fun part of the book but I have to agree there is some truth to it.  Of course we talk all about Tim Ferriss Inspired Questions.  This has become one of the classic episodes in dentistry.  I am sure you will enjoy the podcast the way I did. So without further ado, Dr. Mauty @Session 21 Please subscribe to us at 
Thank you for finding time to listen to session # 20 @hashtag pod podcast of dentistry and I'm your host Dr. Panks Dhingra. You can find all the notes and link to the session at Today our guest is dr. Kyle Stanley His Bio reads something like this.  “Dr. Kyle Stanley, was named as "The Next Generation of Cosmetic Dentistry" by the AACD in 2015 and "Top 10 Young Educators in Dentistry" by the Seattle Study Club, graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC and then completed a dental implant residency along with a dental implant specialty in Brazil. While at USC, Dr. Stanley completed an Esthetic mini-residency with a world leader, Dr. Pascal Magne, and was honored with the Charles L. Pincus Award for outstanding achievements in esthetic dentistry by the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. He is also a dedicated researcher who has published in some of the top international dental journals about topics relating to esthetics, dental implants, and smile design. Dr. Stanley is a KOL for many well-respected companies and has presented on five continents as a highly in-demand speaker. Dr. Stanley is the leading advocate of mental health in dentistry. He maintains an exclusive private practice in Beverly Hills, CA”   That is a long list of achievements for this guy.    In our podcast, he talks about his experience with GIDE and shares his experience of how to go about starting your own implant journey   I believe he's a perfect example of luck and hard work coming together in a very successful way.   We also touch on successful implant Concepts like zero bone loss and the world renowned The lip Factor.   We certainly talk about his AI company called PEARL, the effect of a AI or Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry as a profession and the future of Dentistry because of AI   By now you might feel anxious,  at least I was, listening to and hearing about his accomplishment in such a short span of time that I had to humanize him. There were few emotional moments and that clearly shows the human side of him.    We continue towards the end by asking my favorite Tim Ferris Inspired questions. In the end,  I really loved the spirit of inspiration, entrepreneurship, humility and vision. I hope you love this evergreen podcast the way I did, so without further Ado doctor Kyle Stanley.      LINKS of the Session above  Interview WIth Howard Farran  What is Kyle Stanley's Story?  Implant Residency in Brazil.

Howard for all that these two hours can never do justice.

Moving away from kids we had to talk about business and the DSOs. did he say that he is starting his own DSO or did he say why is that not even possible? Judge it for yourself. I tried to unravel his journey of being such an outspoken uncensored speaker. how he did that how much hard work was put in it? yeah of course talk about the DentalTown and the future of DentalTown covid-19 through the crystal gaze of Howard farran was not to be left behind ofcourse he discussed his stop bullet points how to manage people time and money from his best-selling book in Dentistry Uncensored. he shared what is the number one Addiction on Earth and what I call as the casket test. due to lack of time and so much to cover we could not tell them to Tim Ferriss inspired questions they will be recorded and released at a future date please listen to the podcast filled with humor knowledge history experience and above all versions of a visionary.

Today's podcast we have a very popular guest Dr. David Moffet NOW everyone knows Dr. David Moffet but not like this podcast we were able to uncover a different aspect of his personality the most important thing I realize is that we do not need to reinvent the wheel when David Moffat has spent years learning from different coaches and almost perfected the art of coaching and business. SO he shares a great information about his coaching Journey he's not a self-proclaimed coach but he has walked the walk work being a dentist and shown results that matter. he shares what he learned from Zig Ziglar Dan Kennedy and many dentist and non-dental coaches no wonder he coaches and has coached in many countries in the world including US, Australia, Denmark, Ireland London and many more. of course he talks about his ultimate patient experience protocol. we did not spend a lot of time discussing about it since that has been discussed in all the other podcasts, and that is what makes this podcast entirely different it was a good interview and I was surprised that he sprinkled some great quotes throughout the interview. those quotes can also be seen at podcast of session 14 and the great thing about this podcast which makes it different is music so if you love Music then you will love our discussion about the great music of all time. we talked in great length about music, service in music industry and Gene Simmons of course, from KISS Fame. customer service is what makes or breaks a brand and that is clearly amplified in todays interview. Did you also know that David is actually a Radio announcer too? with all these crazy discussions we also talked about my favorite Tim Ferriss inspired questions believe me you learned so much in this last half an hour of the podcast that it deserves a special mention I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I did Let's Welcome Dr. David Moffet  
Today we have a very special treat for the listeners of #pod podcast of Dentistry Today's podcast is more or less like a CE course for implementing Sleep Apnea in your office. This is for the first time that we are covering a clinical course level discussion on the podcast. We have two experts today, Dr. Joe Zelk who has done thousands of sleep apnea cases and Dr. Richard downs who is the dentist with multiple fellowships and more than 40 years of experience in dentistry that you would like to learn and en-cash on his experience. With Dr. Down, you not only learn about Sleep Apnea but also his entrepreneurship experience. I interviewed them with the idea of implementing sleep apnea in my own office, so I go all-in asking them all the questions which are necessary for me to implement sleep apnea. If you think you are an expert in sleep apnea already there is still some great information of the new products I bet you haven't heard of and that is worth a listen anyways. Those gadgets are actually talked about towards the end of the podcast, if you're only interested in them, although there is a lot more for you to imbibe, that it is still a great listen. If you are a middle-level sleep apnea provider you can still learn how you can use their Ala-carte services to tweak and reach to become an expert in Sleep Apnea. Of course if you are new in the realm of sleep apnea you will gain confidence of implementing it slowly but steadily in your office I like to use the word predictably. With predictability you gain more confidence and hence more success. There are intros about both of them in the first few minutes of the podcast so please keep patience for few minutes to get to the meat of the podcast. We really had a lot of fun in recording the podcast. You can feel the energy and passion of the duo. They open their hearts out why they themselves got into sleep apnea, some history of sleep apnea and even a cheat sheet about signs and symptoms. We also got into hybrid therapy and how that can be used even for Severe cases of Sleep apnea, yes you heard it right, even for severe cases of apnea. I put them on stand to find the potential average money that a dentist can make from each patient. It came out to be an authentic discussion and believe me I asked all the possible questions I could think of or what my peers wanted to ask me on facebook and all the social media. There are some specials that both of them have created for our listeners at If you still have any more questions please reach out to us at podcasts of Dentistry at and we'll get you your answers. As usual all the links and resources can be found at the website podcast of and specifically for this session at podcast of So without further Ado let's Welcome Dr. Downs and Dr. Joe Zelk for this amazing Clinical CE level podcast

If you already know him you might want to skip for few minutes before getting in to the meat of the conversation.  The podcast has a lot of information and was recorded 2 days ago on 18 March 2020. so some numbers mentioned will certainly change. Please keep in mind while taking decisions based on the information on this podcast.  Dr. Puttaiah shares all the basic information about Viruses, their Origin, very briefly but spends quite a bit of time explaining what should be done to prevent such a thing. He talks about flattening the curve and what is coming in next few weeks. We do get carried away partying like a Punjabi (an ethnoliguistic group from people of Punjab, a state in India known for partying and good food ) and have some fun moments in this otherwise morbid topic.  We have also posted a Mindmap of COVID-19 at I hope we all can learn adapt and take adequate steps from this great conversation to tide across this pandemic together.  For any discussions, please do reach out to us at Without further Ado...

Please enjoy Dr. B.
Welcome to #POD : PODcast of dentistry and I am your host Dr. Panks Dhingra Today's guest is none other than Grace from and  We go through a range of conversations and there's a lot that we can learn from these conversations. These conversations should make us think the way that we should be building and implementing systems in our offices. I see these conversations with Grace as a stepping stone to set up systems in the offices in a way that work. She shares her weekly schedule and the schedule that makes her being so productive and what her structured week looks like. She shares all her learning experiences of managing a team, and how we can implement that in our Dental offices. She also shares why she rants in her podcasts and how she intends to use those podcasts to educate dental offices/managers/Owners to achieve marketing success. She shares how she got into dentistry and how she survived her first year in business, what she ate at that time. Well the food is actually more symbolic but it does show a great quality of a start up and of course Grace's. She shares her favorite rant and why she believes that the customer is NOT always right She also opens up what her definition of success and who she considers successful. She opens up what she calls as a Business Karma, what is it and how does it impact everybody who's in the business. She shares her morning ritual and she opens up what she does on Super Tuesdays every week . She also shares what her rigorous marketing process is, who is her ideal client and red flags that we should look for before hiring a marketing agency. She talks about team management and training the staff and not to mention she answers my favorite Tim Ferris Inspired Questions, with books, purchases quotes, and many many more. I hope you like the session as much as I do.
