The Innovative Dentist: How to Protect Your Unique Dental Processes

As a dentist, there is one question you should ask yourself today: How do you know if your innovative ideas are worth protecting? And if so, how do you patent them?

You see, many dentists find themselves asking these questions but finding no answers. Patenting our unique ideas and dental processes can seem like a difficult or often even impossible thing to do.

In fact, many of us think that a new idea has to involve a lot of work and a lot of trial and error to be patented. And when that doesn’t happen, we think ‘Well, this is too obvious, someone else has probably come up with it already.’

And that, my friends, is the mistake many dentists make.

Which is why today, I am here to tell you that you can patent your work.

All you need is the right information, which is why I invited this week’s guest on the podcast, the amazing Professor John Rizvi.

John is a board-certified patent attorney, adjunct professor of law, and recognized speaker in the field of intellectual property. He has over twenty five years of experience in patent and trademark law and was among the first group of attorneys ever to be board-certified as an expert in this field. 

Today, John is here to discuss patenting in the dental industry, how to know if your idea is patentable, the cost involved in patenting, and more.

Are you ready?

Let’s dive in.
