Alan welcomes Dr. David Hornbrook to the Very Dental podcast! David was the presenter at the Vedder Society's fall meeting and he did not disappoint! He's an amazing clinician with an approachable style of presentation and we got to see and interact with him for 3 days! Some of the things we discussed on the podcast were:

  • David is REALLY glad to be back to in person teaching!
  • David explains how he became such a lab and materials focused clinician
  • "Knowing exactly what they're doing in the lab has made me a better dentist."
  • Do you invite your lab to ask for more information and critique your work?
  • Digital workflow isn't an invitation to be sloppy. PVS is way better for someone who doesn't pay attention to details
  • What's the benefit of visiting the lab?
  • Do you know who is creating your restorations?
  • Your lab techs know what kind of dentist you are!
  • Let's go to Lab Day in Chicago!
  • Do you do CE with your lab tech(s)?
  • Are we moving to implants too quickly?
  • Bridges are legitimate treatment in a lot of cases and implant are not always the best choice.
  • The greatest trick for strengthening a zirconia bridge!
  • Becoming David Hornbrook
  • Photography vs. "Instagram Photography"
  • Patient expectations and "ideal" dentistry
  • Weighing minimally invasive techniques against creating room for materials
  • Informed consent and how the dentist "spins" the treatment
  • David's recommendations for new dentists:
    • find a mentor
    • eliminate the undesirable procedures from your practice as soon as possible
    • realize that you're going to be a dentist for a long time
    • "hurry up and slow down"
    • Be uncompromising

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 is brought to you by our friends at Microcopy Dental. Neodiamonds from Microcopy Dental are very fine. I mean, all of them are awesome, but some of them are actually “very fine.” Specifically I mean the yellow striped ones they call “finishing” diamonds. I use Microcopy finishing diamonds on just about any patient that I might be spinning a bur on. Very fine finishers do the heavy lifting on composites so polishing is simple and easy. I use them to finish crown preps. I’ve been known to adjust Emax and Zirconia with them. Once you try them you’re going to find a ton of places to use them! And just like all of Microcopy’s burs, they’re sterile out of the package and single use means they’re sharp and efficient and can be disposed of at the end of the appointment! Go check them out at verydentalpodcast.com/veryfine (all one word)!

The Very Dental podcast is also supported by our friends at Cosmedent! Cosmedent has just released a new composite that you’re going to want to try! It’s called “Renamel Bulkfill” and it’s here to simplify your posterior composite placement. It rivals the speed and efficiency of amalgam but it’s still packable, sculptable and polishes like a dream! You can cure up to 4mm increments, so it’s sure to increase the efficiency of working in the posterior. It’s radiopaque for easy identification on recalls, too! I’ll get a chance to try it clinically next week and I’ll give you my review with photos in the Very Dental Facebook group! Cosmedent is offering a killer 20% off deal for Very Dental Podcast Network listeners by using the coupon code “VDP21” at checkout on their website! So go check out Renamel Bulkfill at verydentalpodcast.com/bulkfill

The Very Dental Podcast is also supported by Zirc! How often do you wish that your patients didn’t have lips, cheeks or tongues? This isn’t a very practical wish, but the Mr. Thirsty One Step basically grants it to you! It’s a comfortable bite block that removes the cheek and tongue from your operating field while the integrated suction keeps everything completely dry! And you don’t even need any special hardware to use it! Best of all, single use means that once you’re done, you just dispose of it. No clean up, no sterilization hassles. Mr. Thirsty One Step is like your wish come true! Go check it out at verydentalpodcast.com/thirsty!
