The Dental Hacks Podcast

Episode 50 continues our conversation with pediatric dentist and educator Dr. Josh Wren. Do pediatric dentists use stainless steel crowns too much? Should you allow parents in the operatory? What kind of sedation does he recommend? What's the recommended procedure for pulpotomies? The DentalHacks deliver on bread and butter pediatric dentistry tips in this episode! Be sure to check out pediatricdentalce.com for dates of Josh's courses!

The Brain Trust returns in episode 50 discussing what, when and how we refer to specialists. Join Dr. Lance Timmerman, Dr. Melissa Zettler, Dr. Dawn Kulongowski, Dr. Frank Clayton and (eventually) Dr. Tarun Agarwal as they talk about how they work with specialist. Refer to a specialist's office? Bring a specialist into your office? You'll hear about all kinds of ways to involve specialists in your patient's care and what's working for others!

In episode 49 the DentalHacks are trying something a little different. We've gotten feedback from a few listeners that they would prefer an entire long form interview on the show instead of splitting them over more than one show. So for those folks, we're trying it out. And there's no one better to do a deep dive with than Dr. Rella Christensen.

Rella Christensen was one of the founders of Clinical Research Associates (now TRAC). They've essentially been the "Consumers Reports" for dentistry for the better part of 40 years and you won't find anyone more knowledgeable on dentistry and dental materials than Rella. Our interview shows her kind demeanor as well as her no nonsense treatment of the data. She's going to change some minds with her discussion of modern crown and bridge materials, particularly monolithic zirconia and she's probably going to ruffle some feathers when she talks about enamel remineralization protocols and how everything we think we know about remineralization is wrong!

Oh...and don't get her started about sugar.

This is a really good interview with one of the smartest people in dentistry. Drink it all in, DentalHacks listeners!

Alan Mead writes blogs and has been since 2008. Howard Farran said, "I actually think the best blogger in America is Alan Mead..." So, there's that. What I'm saying is that your humble hosts have a little something to say about social media!
