"So much better than they used to be at like the artificial intelligence they used to trim the excess tissue away and all that and realigning the scan so that if someone swallows or gets a pool of saving you gotta blow it off, we're like, everything stitches together much more nice. It's just so much easier to scan now than it ever has been. And so there's no reason why your hygienist can't have a skin done in three minutes. And so at that point, it's like three minutes. You know, it's just such a nothing part of the appointment that there's no reason not to do it. And then for us to spend the 5 minutes reviewing it, like, I'm going to be talking to the patient anyway. I'd rather be talking to a patient with something for them to look at than just talking at them. And so for sure. It doesn't add anything on. I think time wise. And there's nothing but upside to it. Huge amount of trust built immediately. It's like, yeah, well, here's what I'm talking about, and here it is. And see that you're staying up on that you're staying on top of things. I don't know how many times I have patients that tell me like, you know, I switched over here because my friend told me that you guys were really up to date and my dentist was 60, 7 years old in their office look like it was from the 70s, right? And so just helps your patient see like, hey, you know, we're on top of things like we're relevant, we're current, we know what's happening, we're changing our processes as science dictates and as technology moves on. And patients always appreciate that. For sure. For sure. Well, man, it was awesome catching up with you. Josh, we're going to be able to see each other just in a few well, it's not a few weeks. A couple of months. 8 weeks or something at the voice of the dentistry I'm super stoked. This is my favorite meeting. Oh, thank you so much for saying yes again. You always just it's always a place in my heart and Mike to told us to. We last time he opened and then I think he was like first thing Saturday morning, I was second. And we had such a good time and both Mike and I look at it as kind of like our workshop like our safe space. That's what we call it because we can try stuff there. Mike's going to try something pretty crazy this year that people are not going to want to miss. And it's so perfect. It's the perfect audience for it too. It's really hard to spend the VOD on it. But it's like it's comfortable. And it's not so much like, oh, I can say crazy stuff and no one gets it. It's just like, it's comfortable. No one's judgmental. It's just the vibes in the room are super positive. It's just such a great, it's such a great meeting. And it's a meeting that should have far more and I'm kind of torn because the education is so great and the camaraderie is so great that it should have thousands of people attending it, but also I'm kind of like, oh, if they're worth thousands of people attending it, would it have the same sort of spirit? And I'm sure that it would. But it really is kind of this amazing this amazing meeting that probably all of your listeners obviously know about it. But by and large in dentistry, it needs to have more presence, but that's part of what's great about it is that it's quaint, you know, it's this point meeting that has just amazing education and amazing chances for interaction. If anybody listening has not is thinking about it or it's not thought about like get it on your calendar come, it's cheap. I don't know what the registration is, but it's under a thousand bucks, right? Yeah. The room is not, I don't know what it is. But it's not, you know, it's not like going to coys where you're $6500 or something. It's cheap. It's at an ISO hotel where the rooms aren't expensive. It's in Phoenix. So it's easy to get to, you know, everybody has a direct flight there. And it's in January. And so it's like, man, if you're listening to this and like Lincoln Nebraska in January, like, get down to Scottsdale, man. Why would you want to why would you want to hang out of there? Get a great weekend down in the warm weather and have a really good time while doing it. You're the best dude. I don't even have to pimp it now. That was a time here to do. It's literally my favorite meeting of the year. That's awesome. So how do people get in touch with you, buddy? Yeah, I mean, Instagram is great at Joshua Austin DDS, Facebook as well.

Yeah. The other thing, it's like a community, right? That's why I peloton's so great because it's like a community and you feel like you're part of it. And that's what VOD kind of feels like to me. It's sort of like that peloton community, right? The people who are in that community are really passionate about it because it's such a great community and so fulfilling. So hopefully you get a few more people to join that VOD community. For sure, brother. Hey man, I really appreciate you so much. Enjoy your workout. And we'll talk to you soon. Thanks, man.

"Speakers. I've heard him speak several times from small intimate stages to larger stages in front of thousands of people. So you guys are in for a treat. He brings the goods. Today, we are welcoming Joshua Austin DDS. To the podcast, he maintains a full-time restorative dental practice in San Antonio, Texas. He is the editorial director and columnist for dental economics focusing on dental products and technology. Doctor Austin lectures around the country to study clubs and dental meetings about these topics along with online reputation management and social media. Doctor Austin is a graduate of the University of Texas health science center in San Antonio, dental school and spent 5 years post grad as faculty in the department of restorative dentistry. His approach to his pearls for your practice column is a fresh approach to today's commercial driven dental journalism. When you read a pearl, rest assured your getting an honest evaluation of a product, which was used by doctor Austin in clinical practice on a patient. What's up, man? How you doing today? Good. How are you? Things are looking good there. Oh yeah, things are great here and press get Arizona, San Antonio, one of my favorite places in Texas. I love it there. I love it. It's a great city. It has a spirit. Not all of the cities in Texas have a spirit Houston's just like sprawling metropolis, right? Dallas is a little bit like Los Angeles, you know, it's a little Hollywood Austin is going through this really weird time where it doesn't know if it's California or Texas and growing pains, but San Antonio has this family based culture spirit that's there that makes for a really cool place to live. Yeah, for sure. For sure, it is, God, there's so many great cities in Texas, San Antonio is one of my favorites, but Austin, you're right. I mean, who was first? Was it Tim Ferris and then Joe Rogan and then Elon and it's there. It is, it is. It's everybody saying FU to LA and Silicon Valley in California in general. As an ex Californian and a person that's still owns my last practice is set to close in December. I had four sold three, one more left. We'll cross our fingers and I'll make sure that this goes out after the date that is supposed to close. So I don't jigs it. But it's a difficult place to make sure. And to do business. But people suck it up because there's a lot of cool things about California as well. But man, I mean, if you want to pay 51% income tax and put up with a bunch of weird political stuff that is California's your place. Yeah, I mean, if it wasn't 72 and sunny every day, like, why would anybody ever live there? That's kind of the deal. Yeah, which is why 70,000 people live on the beach in Venice Beach now, which used to be one of my favorite places when I was growing up there. It's interesting. I was just there what three years ago. It's funny, I still remember this because Katie Couric was sitting across from us. We are at Venice Beach at this really popular breakfast place. It was still relatively normal in Venice. And I went back a few months ago. I was in Santa Monica and I just strolled by Venice. Dude, there are they closed pretty much every business in Venice Beach because the homeless people have taken over completely. You're not allowed to touch them there. You're not allowed to relocate them. You're not even allowed to urge them to go to the other side of the sidewalk. They've just completely taken over. It's the saddest thing. I mean, you know, it used to be like Skid Row, right? Like homeless people all the variance lived at Skid Row, and that was kind of the place. You just kind of knew not to go there and I think it's just a problem that's gotten out of control. And now they just can't control it. And I think the biggest issue for me is all these administrations come in the mayor of LA, the governor of California. This is our number one focus. There's just nothing happens. It just gets worse. So it's one thing to turn a blind eye to it and it gets worse. It's another thing like, hey, we're gonna focus on this as our number one agenda. And then it gets worse. That's even worse to me. It is, it is. And you know, I want to get a really political, but there's so many I have so many strong feelings about it. It's hard for me not to. It's like, we're not actually doing anybody any favors by letting them live in the street, right? There's just no plan at all. It's like, you know, don't infringe upon their rights, but we're actually not helping them at all. So the 70,000 people that live there, that sounds like a lot of people, but they're actually affecting the lives of millions of people. Actually, our property owners there, and their taxes. Whatever. It's a big problem. There needs to be some kind of safety net reform there, but it's obvious what's been being done is not working. Yeah. And kudos to Texas. Because they are having a similar problem in Austin. There's about 2000 I heard about 2000 homeless people in Austin. And they did something about it. They actually have rehabilitation programs. They have housing for them. But you're talking about a 2000 person problem versus a 70,000 exponentially different kind of program. Yeah, for sure. Yeah, for sure. So tell us about your history, dude. And it's really cool to see a fellow dentist that's been able to start as a practice owner and then become a quote unquote influencer and really just kind of work your way around a lot of different groups of people. A lot of very diverse types of dentists because let's be honest, we are pretty damn clicky and there's a lot of different types of dentists out there. Tribe. You find your tribe and there's lots of tribes. And you speak to lots of them. So how did it all happen? Tell us about your story. Yeah, so you know, I mean, I graduated dumb school in 2006 and just worked for a couple of years as associate and then opened my own practice in 2009 and when you open a practice you've been through this. It's like there's days where half a day where you don't have anything going on. You know what I mean? You're fresh startup and you know sometimes you see a bunch of patients sometimes you don't see many. Dory is just trying to make myself busy with stuff. And so I started writing stuff, and I started a blog, which was like seems so quaint now. That's so cute. It seems so stupid. But it was kind of like there weren't really many dental blocks at the time. There's like three. It was me and Chris salerno and Theresa Duncan. Those are the only three blogs there. And then Teresa's was obviously all like front desk. Administration insurance stuff. And then salerno was kind of tech and implant stuff. And then mine was kind of about products like product review stuff. Hey, new composite coming out, tried it this is what I think is how it handles whatever. And so I got to know crystal air pretty well from that. And I had known Chris before from other stuff and then that really expedited. And in 2014, Chris took over as editor in chief of dental economics..

"And we had like five people that was actually i was co hosting said. There were two of us on the stage. We were talking like together and we both flew from there. Were five people listening with the most engaged audience. I've ever had merkel another story i was at. I was speaking of yankee and it was the remember what game it was. But it was the day after a super. I don't remember what it was what it was like. La one against boston lakers versus celtics. Or something. like that. I remember. And i was thinking that i kept saying i'm from la. And i completely forgot about the game on now at some like any questions Offers you start asking you like. How do you feel standing after this game. Like who is the need for sex skirt on us. His little differ that yankee. I feel like they're little as are very warm. Generally like they're like little huggers. Midwinter has always. That's like a big great warm show term. I have our dog abbott. Actually a picture with my giants yappy poppy and the chicago dental society dog like but yankees recalled meeting blida. And yes yes. It is a coke definitely gold meeting. So yeah i mean lots of stories. I like speaking to smaller groups like the od feels like home. I'm i don't know if you were at the last was dentistry. Which was january twenty twenty. That was a blast it was just such a receptive audience. You could do a lot of like inner jokes because a lot of a lot of people from facebook groups. You can do things at that. Show that you can't do anywhere else. If i can think of a highlights of my neetings. That definitely would be boys of dentists dan. I'm so excited about the one that's coming up next year. I am definitely planning on attending that. I had to cancel one year. Because my dad had gone into the hospital. Everything's okay now and then. I think the one that i was planning on going to is yankee. It was too close. I was scheduled monday. And i couldn't. That's what i hear from everybody. Voice dentistry is one of those fun meetings and people. You don't have to be a podcast or to go to. It's a lot of practice management classes. I think there are some clinical. It's all the podcasters. They got tables in if you wanna get interviewed. You can't from what i hear. And i mean if you're just office manager or a dentist out there and you feel like just going on podcast. I bet if you walked by somebody will grab you an interview you so there's always the chance to get on a podcast. I hear really good things about it. And i think it's very nicely priced down in scottsdale. I believe it's great because it's winter in scottsdale tails on bummer. But yeah for anyone who's living like. I was in minneapolis with a twenty nineteen. I think it was twenty nine for star of the north. It was snowing. Yes april twenty five. Someday that you come to scottsdale in it's warm. It's it's just great weather you know and it's just again it hasn Nba howard program was was at the last meeting and i spoke wants a dental town times. Powertrain would pull me on a stage in heat used copyright. My monica like mop seizures. My cat's name. He's like just yellow from the stage. Mafia you can't that is so funny and on some people rag on his podcast. But i gotta tell you i. I tend my podcast app. And i always checkout. Who's on because some of the best interviews have been the people who come on howard because he has a way of saying. Stop trying to hide things. Just say it. Just say what you need to say. I never know what howard you're going to get on the stage that's the mystique of it. I've been at meetings where people have loved howard and then i've been at meetings the meeting planners at the cocktail party that night. I told you we shouldn't have brought him in. You know god love him. he's definitely an icon. I just need a circle. Back real quick to the yankee audience. Because maybe it's because i'm east coast mixed with a little bit of southern but mostly the east coast crowd is like that like they just they look at you and they're just waiting for you to crack a bad joke or in the no pounds if you're just is witty and you are and just kind of on the attack with them. I think they respond really well. It's definitely one of my favorite meetings. Just because i've been going there for so long. But i'll tell you the one meeting that i had a hard time with was greater new york to be spoken for them. No i actually have not just always like is we have kids and it's always nice giving time and they're not out of school yet to make it a new york trip for them right me when it was twenty nine teen actually attended a full day of joshua austin's lectures. He would make it. Fun is just amazing. He's so funny. At last wishes of dentistry it was him can't assume a subject was talking about depression and suicide therapy. But he's the only person who can pull off making serious subject into a really entertaining engaging lecture and they play the recording on on their work in japan says podcast and you could just hear me laughing. The whole that was sitting right in front. Like had roundtable i was sitting in his mic. Was picking up my my laugh or you could just hear irritates commented like because i have i guess fairly distinctive lobsters like i use lacking but he was preceded by Mike tola like those two guys together like they're the funniest dudes in dentistry. I mean i left moran. He's funny. I consider him my mentor. But these two guys and like their presentable with any event i know we talked a lot about the road and all that and people are like okay but what about what about what i can do with this information. Let's talk about the practice man. You do love to talk about that. First of all we were in some groups and i was like oh. She's she's really funny new. Your yappy girl. that's how i do. Then you started really coming out with some good comments on things like oh she really shows which time then i started watching videos like over a two year period watching webinars and looking at your articles what i appreciate and i think people who listen to this will appreciate is at. You're just a no. Bs person like you will say on these comments. She'll say that's not right. Please don't tell me that. I know what i'm talking about. That's not right honestly. We need more of them. So the some of the sugar coating. That's going on out there. But as i shared with you before the meeting people. You gotta look and see if she's coming in your area because one of topics is how to delegate without being a witch. How do anything without being a witch is gonna make ted. That's just that's just. What on earth brought that title into existence. You know what actually. There's no great back story. But what happened. Is here dan from a plus team with eighteen. Yes she's got a great podcast she and some are putting together An then old women. Dentists connect the annual event. They had me speaking at their life event couple years ago and it was a bad life work balance which is like. It's odd that. I'm talking about this. Because i know nothing about life work balanced because it doesn't exist actually actually came up with the title. I'm like that's totally up my alley. Because i can delegate people who like you know you do so much. How do you get everything done. And the i do a lot. But i don't do that much. A lot of what happens. Is the result of the mazing team. Build around me at my dental practice at three three people in my dental practice my office. Manager's been with before fifteen years nice. she's not even office. she's a practice administrator managing a team of thirty three. She came to me as an intern from dental assisting college. I remember her sitting you. I did internship and we did like the end of the internship interview and she was sitting in front of me and she was full of energy just full of lights shoes burning through that chair. And you could just tell like that's a quality person just Young she went like. I think it was ever as the bryan college. Something like that a right after.
