The Very Dental Podcast Network

Why does a cranky 52 year old podcasting dentist get to write the "Rules for Influencers?" Because it's my show, that's why.

The Very Dental Podcast Network

It's easy to remember patient interactions that went poorly. Why is it so hard to remember the great one? There is this thing called "Frequency Illusion" (aka: The Baader-Meinhoff phenomenon) that we humans fall prey to.
