With our 100th episode behind us, we thought it was only fitting to officially introduce our newest member to the Life and Dentistry crew. Meet the one and only Friend Bechtel!

Friend Bechtel, though not a TN boy, was raised on a small hobby ranch in Northern Idaho. From humble beginnings, Friend is working hard to develop a future focus to both provide for his family and protect the future of dentistry. Post-graduation he operated a small construction business. First year of dental school he discovered podcasts and frankly has consumed more podcasts and taken more notes on them then probably his entire school combined. This earned him the attention of many leaders in dentistry including this lovely team. In dental school he founded a business organization to help his peers learn more of the business and prepare for the world to come. 
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife fostering and building new relationships, playing electric violin in local bands, and building his real estate portfolio.
