I believe blogs are powerful tools, and we would all benefit from writing one. I began writing at OneLooseTooth.com in 2013, and it has resulted in several opportunities that I would not have had a chance to pursue otherwise. Before One Loose Tooth, I was writing as the Engaging Dentist (a site I deleted while in dental school). In 2014, 2015, and 2016, I compiled a list of the best dental blogs I could find around the web.
Since graduating from dental school in 2015, life has been much busier, and I did not publish a list of the best dental blogs in 2017 or 2018. I’d like to get back to publishing annual lists for my readers, and I think that Practice Pirate is the perfect platform to do so.
A lot has changed over the last three years, and dental podcasts have garnered much more attention than traditional blogs. But content within podcasts is still not easily searchable, and blogs are still an important tool in the distribution of great content. In 2019, there are several blogs worth reading and they are:
The Practice Whisperer with Dr. Travis Campbell (Dr. Campbell is a dentist in Plano Texas who focuses on helping dentists understand dental insurance): https://practicewhisper.com/articles/
Practice Biopsy (a new dentists journey into practice ownership and financial success): https://www.practicebiopsy.com/
Brian Hank’s blog (Brian is a CPA and CFP focused on helping dentists buy the right practice): https://brianhanks.com/blog/
Dental Nachos with Dr. Paul Goodman (Dr. Goodman offers a fun and refreshing take on the stresses of being a dentist): https://dentalnachos.com/blog/
