2016 is coming to a close and it’s time to highlight some other dentists (and doctors) who are publishing great content online.

A blog I discovered courtesy of a Dentistry Uncensored Podcast is the TAO of Dentistry. The TAO of Dentistry is Dr. Barry Polansky, DMD. Barry and his team have been blogging about dentistry for years. His blog is worth a look and may inspire you to become a better leader. I have not read any of his books or attended a seminar, so I can’t speak for the quality of his work beyond the blog, but if you’re interested in learning more about Dr. Polansky, listen to episode #325 of Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran.

Dr. Lawrence Spindel has authored his own blog called Ask Dr. Spindel since 2005. He recently published How Many Hats Does a Dentist Wear? – A post I think most general dentists will appreciate.

Styleitaliano is not a blog, it’s an online community composed mainly of international dentists who are publishing inspiring content online. Honestly, some of the things these dentists can do with composite will blow you away – leaving you either inspired to improve your own dentistry or depressed that you can’t take the time to make that Class I composite look like a real tooth again on a PPO fee schedule.

Here is a trick from Styleitaliano that I’d like to try sometime in 2017 – the occlusal stamp technique.

The White Coat Investor is not written by a dentist. This blog is owned by Dr. Jim Dahle who is an emergency physician who took interest in financial planning after he was fooled by a few “friends” into purchasing high-load mutual funds, poor insurance polices, and bad real estate. This is one of the best blogs on the internet for doctors, dentists, pharmacists, and other high income professionals. This year, Jim redesigned the website and built a forum that seems to be gaining traction. If you have not read his book, consider it mandatory reading for any healthcare professional.

The Acadmey of General Dentistry (AGD) is one of my favorite organizations. The AGD keeps a blog called The Daily Grind where multiple dentists routinely contribute content. One of my favorite posts recently was this one about corporate dentistry

Honorable mention: The Blogging Dentist. Alan Mead doesn’t write as much as he used to; instead, he spends a lot of time behind the mic as the co-host of the Dental Hacks Podcast. Nevertheless, when Alan updates his blog, it’s almost always worth reading.
