Dr. McCall talks about his experience with newspapers and billboards as well as his techniques for generating new patients and patient engagement using Facebook.

In this week’s Brain Trust segment we continue our discussion on alternative dentistry. We discuss amalgam hygiene, oil pulling, the “man boob problem” and even how some people believe you can whiten your teeth with urine! The Brain Trust never disappoints!
