Our 100th episode is with the one and only Dr. Ryan Hungate
Len and Ryan sit down to talk about Tele dentistry, how to move forward, and thrive in this virtual environment. They will discuss new ways to utilize Tele dentistry to build patient bases while away from the office, and prepare for the tidal wave of demand for when they open their doors again.
