In episode 145 Dr. Dennis Hartlieb joins Jason and Alan to talk about his journey from believing composite was a "temporary material" into creating an entire rehab in composite!

Dr. Dennis Hartlieb was one of Dr. Frank Spear's original students. He's been learning excellence in restorative dentistry for 25  years or more. But like many dentists, he used to believe composite had no place in long term restorative dentistry. Then he met Dr. Buddy Mopper and he began to change his mind. Dennis is a really engaged teacher. Really approachable and seems to really understand how dentists learn. Some highlights:

  • Dennis's approach to team bulding...learn one, do one, teach one!
  • Simple composite solutions that can make a huge difference!
  • How does sleep apnea affect restorative dentistry?
  • A description of Dennis' course at Cosmedent, "CPR for the worn dentition."
