The Very Dental Podcast Network

Many CE courses are a display of the skill and ability of the speaker. The problem is that often the student may never reach that level of skill and ability. Dr. Buddy Mopper has been teaching composite dentistry for over 40 years and his focus has been on teaching a skill set that can work for everyone. Buddy started to give dentists the materials and techniques to create composite dentistry that was as beautiful as it is predictable. Dr. Dennis Hartlieb joined Buddy to explain how they teach composite dentistry of all kinds (from gorgeous veneers, to endo access repairs) that any dentist...

The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dental operating microscopes are a fascination with me. But I don't use mine as effectively as I would like. Today's guest on the Very Dental podcast REALLY does! I had the chance to sit down with Dr. Jorge Zapata at the Voices of Dentistry 2022 to talk about it! You've no doubt seen Jorge's videos of 3rd molar extractions and other surgery on Facebook. He graciously posts them in the Very Dental Facebook group and other groups and they are the most satisfying dental videos I've ever seen! We discuss how he started using microscopes and how he's learned to document through the microscope....

Shorts: On Acid show art Shorts: On Acid

The Very Dental Podcast Network

Every day we see patients with accelerated wear on their teeth. It's so common that we sometimes ignore it. I recently had a chance to hear Dr. Frank Spear at the Michigan Dental Association's annual session and he spent a lot of time talking about attrition, erosion, toothbrush abrasion, NCCLs and wear patterns.  What do these things have in common? Acid. Whether it's gastric reflux or acidic foods and beverages, our patients are constantly exposed and it affects their teeth. But erosion isn't really just acid on it's own. It's almost always acid + some kind of wear agent.  The...

Alan is joined by two relatively new owners of microscopes. Specifically the Zumax OMS 2380. Dr. Graham Forbes and Dr. Brad Mattison both bring some pretty compelling arguments for microscope use in their offices in this episode.

Graham’s story: He loved what he saw from the Eastern European scope gurus (Dr. Maxim Belograd and Dr. Nazariy Mykhaylyuk) and found that a full day of restorative dentistry was getting hard on his neck!

Brad’s story: In dental school he watched a lot of dental Youtube and was inspired by Dr. Gerard Cuomo.

The rest of the interview is a deep dive about what you need to know about dental microscopes, what you could expect the shopping experience to be and why the three of us recommend the experience of working with Enova Illumination and Zumax.

If you would you like support the Very Dental Podcast Network you should support our sponsors! They help us create content that is, for lack of a better word...Very Dental!

The Very Dental Podcast Network is brought to you by our friends at Microcopy Dental. Here are 3 reasons that you should check out Microcopy Dental:

  1. Their Instagram posts are hysterical. Dental marketing is usually cheesy and appeals to the lowest common denominator. Microcopy Dental posts legitimately funny stuff on their Instagram account!
  2. Microcopy makes a wide variety of single use carbides, diamonds and polishers. Such a wide variety that their catalog reminds me of an encyclopedia. But with better pictures.
  3. Microcopy dental makes it so you’ll never have to experience that “dull bur” feeling ever again. A new bur. Every. Single. Time.

The Very Dental Podcast Network is also brought to you by the fine folks at Zirc. The first time I knew anything about Zirc was a LONG time ago. I tried the Zirc Crystal HD mirror and it’s wrecked me on any other mirror ever since. If you want a dental mirror that reminds you of using an HD TV, you should check out Zirc’s Crystal HD mirror. It comes as a replacement head for any mirror handle you already use or as a single piece. Either way, it will change the way you see everything for the better. Go check out the Crystal HD mirror from Zirc at verydentalpodcast.com/mirrors

The Very Dental Podcast network thanks our friends at Cosmedent for all of their support! Have you ever wished that one simple and painless change could make your dentistry better?

The handling and polishability of Cosmedent’s Renamel Microfill must be experienced to understand the major difference it makes! Go check out Renamel Microfill at verydentalpodcast.com/microfill
