Lend an Ear to These 15 Dental Industry Podcasts

15 dental industry podcasts

September 30th is International Podcast Day, and we’re celebrating by sharing with you a list of 15 dental industry podcasts worth lending an ear to. Podcasts as a whole have experienced a surge in popularity over the last few years (nearly 70 million Americans listen to them at least monthly), and luckily for those seeking information and inspiration in the dental biz, this industry is no exception! While it’s wonderful that there are more, high quality podcast offerings than ever before, it can also be a bit overwhelming navigating that sea of options…which is why we created this list!

We included industry staples that have been releasing content since 2012, as well as exciting newcomers to the scene who just got started this year. There are shows hosted by men, shows hosted by women, shows geared toward dentists, and shows created to empower dental assistants and office managers.

    1. Thanks for your suggestion Elvis, we’ll 100% check it out! We tried to find a few for this list that included perspectives other than the dentist, so a podcast focused on the lab would be a perfect addition!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and giving this post a read, Carolyn! If you do listen to any of them, let us know which ones you end up liking! There are so many out there (which is awesome), that we may even need to do a “round 2” at some point 🙂
