for Irene who is a few weeks out from opening her first practice.
She's currently struggling with hiring staff and creating a
professional vibe in the office. Irene and Katrina have some serious questions for our two amazing guests.
Our first guest is Chris Sallerno, Editor in Chief of Dental Economics Magazine
Chris is a general dentist practicing in Melville, Long Island. He shares the low-down on opening a practice, the fear of opening
a new practice and gives Irene some pointers for opening her new dental practice.
His advice for those opening their first practice include: -When to book patients -Common mistakes of opening -Who to hire for a new practice -HIRE SLOWLY, FIRE QUICKLY -How to write job descriptions -How to interview
Business Plans are an essential part of opening a practice.
Chris uses the business model canvas by Osterwalder
How and why to consider a target market

---------------------------------- Our second guest is Missy Fryer, who owns a practice with her husband.
Missy has some out of the ordinary, yet extremly effective interviewing
techniques that she shares with us in this episode!
Irene talks about the excitment of opening her own new practice and the hiring process.
Missy goes through her essential criteria and the entire process of hiring for a dental practice.
-She shares with the ladies her simple math problem she asks everyone she hires to her practice. -Missy and her husband opened a practice outside of Cleveland, Ohio and operate a website where they consult on how to properly run a practice smoothly. -She demonstrates the importance of spelling on applications -Missy says You need your systems written down so that staff can be uniformly trained.

a work-related injury.

This week Irene has dedicated this episode to Emily Boge! She's amazing!
@Joycethedentist is amazing, Started her Instagram to grow her beautiful practice and since then has started a vlog, created an e-book for dentists AND now has a cute TikTok account!
Huge thanks to 3M for Sponsoring this week’s episode and giving us a cool spot to record live at CDA!This week's product spotlight was developed to help patients who suffer from xerostomia.
Irene wrote a cool scientific article in the Dental Economics Magazine in the November Issue that talks all about early identification of dry mouth and salivary gland dysfunction.
3M offers a suite of products to tackle xerostomia from multiple angles. First, there is the 3M Xerostomia Relief Spray, which is a lipid-based solution designed to limit water loss, moisten, and lubricate the entire oral cavity.
This is a prescription product that can be dispensed directly out of the office or your doctor can write a prescription and send it directly to a specialty pharmacy. Many patients like to use Theramints, which are 100% xylitol-sweetened mints to stimulate their saliva throughout the day.
I strongly recommend high-risk patients have an in-office varnish with Vanish 5% sodium fluoride white varnish can be used every 3 to 6 months. Helps with sensitivity relief by releasing fluoride, calcium and phosphate for up to 24 hours.
Lastly send a patient home with Clinpro 5000, a high-fluoride toothpaste, containing their patented functionalized tri-calcium phosphate. This can be prescribed for patients to use at least once a day for caries prevention.
To learn more about 3M’s suite of products to help with xerostomia, like Clinpro 5000, Theramints, Vanish Varnish and Xerostomia Relief Spray visit 3M.com/Xerostomia

Irene aka @Toothlife.Irene on Instagram
Whitney aka @Teethtalkgirl And on YouTube
Thank you dental peeps for tuning into another episode of The Tooth or Dare Podcast! This week we chat with the one and only Dr. Shana Hughes of @TheToothBooth! She's the Botox and filler QUEEN of Instagram sharing with us all the tips and tricks to fight this thing we call ageing.
What are the ladies doing this week? @TeethTalkGirl is shooting some cool videos for you on her YouTube Channel and has revamped her website with an easy to use search option! See all your fav and new videos on her website ------> Teleport to the website here!
Meanwhile @Toothlife.Irene is off to St. Johns Newfoundland to speak at the Canadian Dental Hygiene Association annual conference where she gets to cross off a #bucketlist item off her speaking goals list. She'll be streaming this LIVE on her Instagram Friday Morning!
Thank you to our friends @Hu_Friedy for sponsoring another informative episode. This weeks highlighted instrument is the BRAND NEW HD Blackline Mirror - DIAMOND LIKE CARBON (DLC) COATED MIRROR!
The durable black matte coating reduces the glare by up to 80% compared to a standard metal mirror head and handle. This helps to reduce strain and fatigue as the user does not need to adapt their viewing position due to unwanted shine.
The black color of the coating creates a distinct contrast between the instrument, the tooth and/or the surrounding tissue allowing for easy identification intraorally.
Whitney raps out some awesome stats about this product like:
113% reflection factor for exceptional image clarity. 38.5% brighter than rhodium coated mirror glass. 50% brighter than other front surface mirror glass. Hard to beat those stats! Brighter is always better!
Dr. Hughes is a wealth of knowledge and her sweet southern accent makes every word she says that much sweeter! Aside from her beautification tips like.. "how to prevent breakouts..." and "what pillow we should sleep on" Dr. Hughes is a really cool person. Her passions for dentistry drive deep into her evergrowing practice, when she's not drilling, filling or injection Dr. H has an adorable son that and a growing horse farm!
Follow her on Instagram if you need to be reminded to wash your make brushes and whiten your teeth. Hang tight to see who does a Tooth or a Dare, it's going to be awesome!
It isn't every day you get to interview a Unicorn... THEN it happens that Whitney is away and another unicorn comes to co-host! BONUS for Irene!
Shoutouts to our girl @Teethtalkgirl (Whitney) for celebrating a B-DAY this week! Eating cake to celebrate your girl!
Big props to Lance Timmerman (of Working Interferences Podcast) for loaning Dr. Joshua Austin (@joshuaaustindds) for an episode on TOD Pod. He will be returned unharmed and generally unchanged. Josh brings some of the Working Interferences charm and does a Reddit. Tossing in a "tough look" along with some of his classic Joshisms.
OUT GUEST IS EPIC! You may know our bro @BloodyToothGuy from Instagram as the OG carpule art gangster. One of the first to showcase his full surgeries within a story post and definitely a gangster at all things surgical.
In real life, he is JUST as epic and magical as his surgical interventions. We get to know him a little more personal and Dr. BTG answers your Instagram questions. He's a really cool dude with flair, style and lots of humour.
This episode is dedicated to Dental Nerd Supremo... We don't know who you are but thank you for giving Tooth or Dare Podcast and Working Interferences Podcast a mutual review.

First ever on Tooth or Dare the guest decides to do the dare. WHAT WHAT!!!!
Thanks for your continued support peeps!
We love you and we welcome your feedback and amazing reviews as always.
2019 has finally arrived listen to what these ladies have done over the holidays and how they are starting this year with a bang!
Irene shared some BIG news to share with Y'all in 2018 and had a monumental day in private practice this week.
Often with the turn of a new year, we get itchy to ask some financial questions. Listen to hear how Whitney and Irene perceive getting raises, quitting or getting fired and how it all is positive in the world of getting more money down the road!
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!... Was our exact response when A Tale of Two Hygienists reached out to us to do a joint podcast!
Michelle and Andrew (aka the dental hygiene gods of the podcast world) asked us some questions about our goals in the world of podcasting whilst Irene and Whitney grilled them with questions about podcasting and how to get it right!
Rants and raves from both sides in this chatty episode of the veterans and the newbies. Turns out we have more common items that we thought.
Both podcast duets...
1. Didn't know one another before the started making podcast magic.
2. Have done a mission trip of some kind.
3. Have a hard time keeping up with the scope of practice in each state/province.
...just to name a few things that this podcast collaboration revealed.
In all seriousness, we would like to fire off a huge shoutout to these fantastic humans for helping us get comfortable in this big bad dental podcast world. We are very grateful to have friends like you and we are super pumped to see you and work hopefully work together in the future.
Do them a solid and go vote for them and all of your favorite hygiene podcasts! Nominate us for next year as we started late in the game this year!

Happy Holidays Peeps - @Toothlife.Irene
We know her as @toothlife.irene. She travels world lecturing to dental peeps and is living her best life as the founder of Toothlife. Irene is a woman of many talents... so many that Whitney doesn't even know half of what she does yet! She does know that Irene is killing the IG game and for sure creates adorable Toothlife jewelry.
Whitney has been preparing some serious questions for our fellow RDH, speaker, instructor, and influencer without a peep about what she's going to ask. Listen to this epic interview style podcast to hear what Irene has to say to Whitney's lightning bolt round of questions... and just wait to hear Irene's BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!
And as always, we end the show with an interesting game of Tooth or Dare. Irene's turn so FOLLOW OUR IG to see what happens next!
Irene has been fangirling over @ToothfairyKNZ aka Mackenzie and her artistic denture making for a long time... which makes this interview extra special for our overly excited Canadian.
Whitney and Irene ask some serious questions about Mackenzie's career path, personal path, #goals and the question we all truly have as clinicians .... "how should we REALLY be telling patients to clean their removable dentures?" and "If you want to get into this business... formal training or mentorship?"
Listen to hear the answers to these questions & don't forget to follow our Instagram page for the dare! IT IS GOING TO BE EPIC!
We all know her as @teethtalkgirl. Her YouTube videos are ridiculously funny and informative.
Who would have thought you could teach people about scalers in the same sentence you rap to a cardi song? Yup... only our girl Whitney can pull that off. See what I'm talking about here
Irene has been preparing some serious questions for our fellow RDH and Influencer without a peep about what she's going to ask. Listen to this epic interview style podcast to hear what Whitney has to say to Irene's interrogative questions.
