I recently had the pleasure to sit down and discuss dental practice management with Dr. Khadine Alston. She runs the blog Drill Fill Bill, a great resource for all things dental. For a summary of what we discussed, you can read about it on her blog. The full podcast is also available, and I highly recommend that you give it a listen.

Dr. Khadine Alston is a practicing dentist (graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University College of Dental Medicine); an accomplished journalist (graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Communication from University of Miami); and a passionate public health promoter (graduated with a Masters in Public Health from Florida International University).  Her biggest passion is people.  More specifically, she loves giving back.  Over the years, she has organized multiple public health awareness initiatives on the issues of oral and pharyngeal cancers and HIV/AIDS in an effort to provide individuals and communities with critical health information.

In this interview, Dr. Pyser shares a few simple strategies that all dentists could immediately implement in their dental practice in order to affect positive change.  However, before we dive in, let’s take a moment to get to know Dr. Pyser.
