Jason and Alan had a chance to speak with “bestselling author” Dr. Craig Spodak! He’s also co-host of The Bulletproof Dental Practice podcast and a very successful practice owner in Del Ray Beach (not Miami), Florida! We talk with Craig about:
- creating a practice that incorporates the good stuff of dental school (working with colleagues, collaboration) without the hazing
- How a GP does huge numbers on two clinical days per week
- Craig’s new book: “The Bulletproof Practice” and their upcoming “Bulletproof Summit” on October 12-13 in Atlanta!
- Mom jokes
Craig is a blast. He’s smart and super funny and we loved seeing him at Dentsply Sirona World 2018!

Some people find Itena’s Dentotemp to be a little too much hold. Maybe you’ve got a super retentive prep or splinted temps. Or maybe you know that your provisional won’t be there for very long and you don’t want to struggle to remove it. Don’t worry…Itena’s got you covered! Provitemp is Dentotemp’s little brother. It’s got a less firm hold with a great eugenol-free formulation! Check out Provitemp at dentalhacks.com/provitemp.
