Speaking - T-Bone Speaks

Need a charismatic and credible speaker?

Dr. Tarun Agarwal is an experienced, dynamic speaker you can trust to inspire your audience.

I absolutely love creating magical moments by connecting with the audience and inspiring them to take positive action.


It's a skillful combination of knowing your stuff, having a relatable story to share, and the ability to deliver it with humility and humor.

I understand and respect the challenge of choosing the right keynote speaker for your event.  An event is ultimately judged by the quality of the speakers.


It's an honor to be considered for your event.  As an event organizer myself, I understand the details that go into such an important decision.

What Are Your Attendees Looking For? 

PERSPECTIVE FOR THE CURRENT GENERATION.

Live events are struggling to maintain, much less grow, attendance.  Frankly speaking, your attendees are tired of seeing and hearing from same old people of yesteryear.  Equally important, they are tired of wasting their time listening to some 'expert' waffle on about themselves as they prance around on stage.


Today's attendee is looking to not only learn something new, but to also to feel inspired to take action in both their professional and personal journey - called LIFE.  They want a fresh perspective on the challenges of current times.


Oh, they also demand to be entertained at the same time.


What Are Event Planners Looking For? 

I'VE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES.

Running a successful event is a delicate balance of the needs of the attendees and the needs of your sponsors & exhibitors.


In my career I've been responsible for hundreds of events.  Ranging from hosting intimate hands-on training events to multi-thousand person conferences.

Dr. Tarun Agarwal is the co-founder and was managing partner of DentalTown's Townie Meeting from 2003 to 2012.

You do an awesome job and I can't tell you enough how thankful I am that I signed up for the course. You made it such a great learning environment and our team can tell much you care that we learn and understand, but also enjoy ourselves.

Thank you for two great lectures. You are very inspiring. I am getting the new SL cone beam unit and will start placing implants again using guided surgery.

You really inspired me! Thanks again.

Great Not Only in Dentistry But Also in Life

If you remember, you sat with me for over two hours and discussed my future in dentistry. Well, I wanted to thank you for taking your time to talk. That made a huge impact on my life, as I reevaluated my goals and what I want out of this career.

You also mentioned that 'you are an average of the 5 people you hang out with'. I have found mentors who will accelerate my career and now surround myself with such people. Since I met you that day, the changes I have made helped me in becoming more confident as a clinician and I enjoy dentistry more each day.

Thanks again for your guidance, you helped me realize what it takes to be great not only in dentistry but also in life!

I attended your lecture "Implants in the CEREC Practice" at the CEREC 30 seminar in Las Vegas.

I was especially moved by your closing keynote in the Venetian ballroom on Saturday. I actually found you more inspiring than Tony Robbins and Emmitt Smith!

What's Makes Me A Great Choice? 

I'M A DENTAL UNICORN.

Dentist.  First and foremost I am a practicing dentist.  This means I have spent thousands of hours sitting in an audience.  This also means I understand the needs of the practicing dentist and what they are looking for.

Event Organizer.  I've built and hosted hundreds of events.  I realize that a speaker doesn't just show up and speak, but also interacts with attendees before and after the talk.

Manufacturer Consultant.  I have worked with dozens of dental companies in various roles over the years.  This has given me a 'view from the inside' of what defines a successful event from the sponsors and exhibitors.


My Most Requested Topics

Below is a list of my most requested talks.  Please don't consider this list exhaustive.  If you think I'd be a great fit for your event, I'd be happy to talk about a customized program that fits your specific needs.

Business of Clinical Excellence

EARN MORE MONEY, TAKE MORE TIME OFF, AND DO MORE OF THE DENTISTRY YOU ENJOY

Dentists are facing significant challenges in today's crowded and competitive market - from DSO's, direct to consumer services, dental insurance limitations, and/or changes in the consumer (patient) expectations.  The truth of the matter is that what worked in the 1990s, 2000s, or even the 2010s is no longer good enough to build a sustainable, successful dental practice.


In this no-nonsense yet entertaining program, Dr. Tarun Agarwal will blend practical business principles with modern clinical techniques.  He will focus on adapting to the changing consumer mindset, tips to increase treatment acceptance, team driven marketing, and expanding clinical services beyond traditional general dentistry.


  1. Learn what's really holding back your practice growth - it's not necessarily more new patients.
  2. Learn the 3 main case acceptance objections and how to handle them.
  3. Learn 3 things you must be doing to market your practice - and they don't cost anything.
  4. Learn how to add expanded clinical services - sleep apnea, dental implants, and clear aligner orthodontics.



Sleep Apnea in the Dental Practice

PRACTICAL WORKFLOW TO IMPLEMENT A LIFE SAVING THERAPY

There is little question that sleep apnea is one of the hottest topics in dentistry.  It can also be one of the most confusing clinical techniques to actually implement.  This informative program will provide fundamental science, but will mainly focus on the implementation of sleep apnea therapy within the general dental practice.


Dr. Agarwal will share his proven 4 step team driven approach to sleep apnea.


  1. Creating awareness inside the practice and outside in the community.  
  2. How to work with a sleep physician to assist your patients in getting diagnosed.
  3. A simplified protocol to leverage medical insurance to make it affordable for patients.
  4. A modern, digital workflow to effective treatment with appliance therapy.

Implants for the General Dentist

MAKE IMPLANTS MORE AFFORDABLE FOR PATIENTS AND MORE PROFITABLE FOR YOUR PRACTICE

Dental implantology is one of the fastest growing and most profitable segments in dentistry.  It is estimated the number of implants placed in the coming decade will more than double.


Today only approximately 25% of general dentists surgically place dental implants.  This program will walk you through my personal journey of placing no implants to now doing complex full arch implant therapy.


Learn how I made it happen, the technology that makes it possible, and the impact it has made on my practice.
