So everyone takes time off between Christmas and New Year's Day, right? All that eating and college football means there's not enough time for a new podcast, right?

Nope. We're on it. Boom.

Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver joins Alan to talk about dental insurance, health insurance and having some empathy for the dental patient that wants to use their benefits. Then they dig into the idea of doing an "interview" with a new patient during their first exams and building up "emotional capital" (Shawn's fancy word).

They also talk about the sponsors of the upcoming Voices of Dentistry Summit. These companies have decided to back the most innovative meeting os 2017 in spectacular fashion!

Cosmedent recently introduced a composite placement instrument like nothing you've ever seen. It's called the CASI (pronounced like the name "Cassie") and it is 100% Dental Hacks approved. Both Jason and Alan have found that it's becoming an integral part of their anterior composite workflow. It has curves in all the right places and allows you to build beautiful anatomy in layered composites quickly and easily. If you make it to the Voices of Dentistry meeting you'll have a chance to see it up close and personal!

Everyone has those patients that would probably best be served with a full mouth reconstruction. But many or even most of those patients can't or won't fit that into their budget. What if you could offer treatment that could offer positive esthetic and restorative changes to stabilize these patients with composite resin? Dr. Corky Willhite has been delivering this service, which he calls "transitional bonding" for years and he teaches it at the Cosmedent CEE! In today's episode he explains how he started doing transitional bonding and how to do it:  from smile design to a stable products that can last for years! Want to see more? Corky is presenting a 3 day course on transitional bonding from March 16-18th, 2017 in Chicago!

The Brain Trust features 5 speakers at the upcoming Voices of Dentistry Summit! We ask the question: does CBCT make you a better dentist? Jason and Alan talk with Dr. Wes Mullins from "the Dental Guys" podcast, Dr. Lance Timmerman of "Totally Oral" and Dr. Justin Moody of the "Dentists Implants and Worms" podcast about what CBCT has done for their practice and why they think it's an important tool! You're going to love this discussion (including Justin's near miss with a train). If you do...you need to buy your Voices of Dentistry tickets so you can meet them all in person!

Episode 125 is a very special one for Alan. He sat down with his dad, Roger Mead, for a conversation about dentistry. Dr. Mead graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy school of dentistry in 1968 and is still practicing dentistry today! He still loves the profession and you'll hear about how things have changed and how they've stayed the same over a storied career in dentistry! He tells stories about dental school in the 60s, transitioning from working with no gloves, CE from Dr. Pankey himself, taking arrows for being a general dentist performing orthodontics and a bunch more! What started out as a talk with my dad ended up being downright fascinating!

What if seeing posterior composites on your schedule gave you the same warm, fuzzy feeling as a crown prep on #14? We make no promises, but the Bioclear method can help! We pick up where we left off with Dr. David Clark talking about the Bioclear system, specifically the "Diamond Wedge." Since David is a dentist, he spent a bunch of years addressing problems that dentists have run into with posterior composites and designed solutions that everyday restorative dentists can use to take the drudgery out of direct restorations! You'll hear David discuss the problem of "back to back" composites and his tricks to avoid poor contacts as well as how to choose wedge sizes and separation rings for regular cases. Finally, David and Jeremy discuss how the "Rock Star Polish" and how they invented Magic Mix to make the polishing process simple and consistent. Honestly...if you hear one thing in episode 124 it's trying out Magic Mix. Man is that stuff awesome!

Jason and Alan regroup in the second half of the episode to be their very own Brain Trust. Some stuff they talk about:

  • office holiday parties
  • learning to scan: the first few days with an intraoral scanner
  • experience with Bioclear Magic Mix
  • Why some patients are just clinically easier than others and what to do about it
  • putting together a team of specialists to work with

Cosmedent has invented a new instrument specific to anterior composite placement. The coolest thing about it is that the instrument curves the way an anterior tooth curves! Placing and shaping composite in the anterior has never been easier. You need to check out the CASI (pronounced "Kassie.") www.dentalhacks.com/CASI

We feature Dr. Mark Costes, Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver and the Dental Hacks talking about social media marketing, JLips' "hip hop practice," podcasting and the most innovative CE event of 2017...the Voices of Dentistry Summit!

A couple of things:

1) This is the same content that Mark released on the Dentalpreneur a couple weeks ago. It's great, but if you've heard it on his show...it's the same.

2) The Voices of Dentistry podcast is primarily for dental podcast listeners! It's a CE event for the people who are cool enough, good looking enough and smart enough to have made dental podcasts a part of their life! It's also for people interested in podcasting, because you'll have access to a whole bunch of dental podcasters to talk about how they do what they do. But first...it's for people like you who listen to the Dental Hacks podcast. And we really want you to come!

3) Some links from the show:

Prices won't go up until next week. Get your tickets now!
