I’m thrilled to welcome Joshua Scott, a marketing genius and good friend of mine, to this week’s podcast episode. Joshua is not only a marketing consultant in the dental industry, but he has also been speaking to audiences for over 20 years.

Josh has spent the last 15 years in the dental industry, working with practices and organizations to establish and deliver confident marketing strategies. He leads Studio 8E8 (pronounced 88), a creative marketing firm specializing in brand creation and innovative digital marketing solutions. He also hosts The 8E8 Show, a regular podcast that focuses on answering essential marketing questions in dentistry.

With roots in Compton Avenue on the south side of Los Angeles, Josh considers himself “part thug.” However, he currently resides in New Albany, Ohio – a typical white picket fence community where the most gangsta thing he ever does is listen to Jay-Z with the car windows rolled down. He’s a family man and has been married for 21 years to his high school best friend, Joanna. The happy couple has two children, Caden aged 12 and Aliya, who is eight years old.
