Episode 86 of the Dental Hacks Daily features Alan dissecting a hit piece in the Atlantic called "The Truth About Dentistry." The article is in the Atlantic Magazine and it's written by Ferris Jabr. It had potential, but predictably was used to make the profession of dentistry look bad.

"We as dentists make life hard for ourselves by compromising too much."

--Dr. Jason Smithson

In a nutshell, this statement is why Jason Smithson is my hero. Also my spirit animal. In this very special edition of the Dental Hacks Daily I had a chance to talk with Dr. Jason Smithson about the rubber dam. Jason is known for his exquisite restorative procedures. And one of the many things that makes him such a fine clinician and teacher is his use of the rubber dam. I spend this episode asking Jason all about it. We discuss:

  • What does he do for patients that don't tolerate it?
  • What's the best way to explain rubber dam to a patient?
  • What does he think of Isolite and other bite block/suction style options?
  • Are there any procedures that he thinks are inappropriate for the dam?
  • Who places the dam in Jason's office?

This episode gives the listener a sample of another new podcast that will be coming out on the Dental Hacks Podcast Network! Coming in May 2019, the "Smithson On..." podcast will be conversations and rants featuring the wit and expertise of Dr. Jason Smithson!

Dr. Dennis Hartlieb has created what we think is going to be the future of dental CE! He's one of the best teachers of restorative dentistry anywhere and he has created this amazing dental continuing education platform that he calls "Dental Online Training" and he wants you to try it! Go check out dentalhacks.com/dot and sign up for his comprehensive digital version of "CPR for the Worn Dentition" for free!

It's all about convenience. Talking on the phone is an OLD technology! It's time to turn your social media presence or website into a dental version of Uber! Our friends at Localmed can make that happen no matter where your patients are looking for you! Google, Facebook, Healthgrades and even Yelp...Localmed has you covered! Head on over to dentalhacks.com/Localmed and get a free demo of what they can do for you and you'll receive 10% off set up just for using our link!

Why haven't you taken the Neodiamond Challenge yet? Microcopy Dental thinks that their single-patient-use burs will stand up to any comparison of multiple use diamonds without the hassles of re-sterilization and all the hassles that go along with it. They want you to head over to dentalhacks.com/challenge, request a sample of their most popular crown preparation diamond, the 1116.8C, and put it to the test! We think it's going to change your mind about diamond burs!

Proud isn't really the right word. Maybe ecstatic is.
The Dental Hacks podcast has a spinoff! Just like "Happy Days" produced "Mork and Mindy" and "Breaking Bad" birthed "Better Call Saul," the Dental Hacks podcast is proud to announce a new podcast. It's based on the spinoff Facebook group that we call "The Clinical Hacks" and we're sticking with that name for the new podcast!

You might remember that we did a round table about endodontics back in episode 223 that featured Dr. Kevin Fryer, Dr. Zach Meiners and Dr. Mac Jones and there was a bit of magic there. These three "regular ass" dentists love talking shop and that's just what you'll hear on the Clinical Hacks podcast!

In today's episode we talk with Kevin, Zach and Mac about what they hope to accomplish with the podcast and what we can expect!

It's all about convenience. Your patients want to make appointments for your office on their own time, and they don't really need to talk with your people! Our friends at Localmed can make that happen no matter where your patients are looking for you! Google, Facebook, Healthgrades and even Yelp...Localmed has you covered! Head on over to dentalhacks.com/Localmed and get a free demo of what they can do for you and you'll receive 10% off set up just for using our link!

Jason and Alan welcome Dr. Frank Spear to the podcast to talk about some big picture concepts. Frank was asked to give the keynote lecture to the Cal-lab Annual Session in 2019 and was asked to predict the future of dentist/dental lab relationships. So he dug into a lot of statistics and research and now we're going to share some of that with the Dental Hacks listeners! Some of the things we talk about with Dr. Spear:

  • Why have the number of dental labs been shrinking?
  • Where have all the lab technicians gone?
  • Is the narrative about corporate dentistry taking over accurate?
  • What happened in the mid-70's through the mid-80's that helped create a particularly large cohort of dentists that are now reaching retirement?
  • Is the need for dentists growing or shrinking?
  • How will technology help us with treatment planning?
  • How did he transition from traditional perio/pros to implants and how did that transition go?
  • What has made implants a more predictable treatment option starting in the 90's?
  • Are we seeing dentists move too quickly to implants? Will there be a backlash?
  • What happened to the mustache?

We appreciate the time that Dr. Spear took with us and we think you'll really enjoy this episode! If you like the episode, would you please tell your friends about it?

Alan sits down to talk with Ben Rojek, of Spear Education. Ben wears multiple hats at Spear and one of them was the editor of Spear Digest! He has a background in journalism and marketing and we had an interesting conversation about content creation for dentists!

  • How is Spear helping dental students start their careers with affordable continuing education?
  • How has the "content creation machine" that is Spear Education changed in the past several years?
  • What's it like to be the editor or one of the most widely read dental blogs anywhere?
  •  What are some easy things that regular dentists can do to be found online?
  • Why should you start a blog? (spoiler: Al has thoughts)
  • How should dentists respond to reviews?
  • What are some great ways to portray yourself and your team on social media?
  • How can Spear help you with patient education?

Microcopy wants you to take the "Neodiamond Challenge!" They think that their single-patient-use burs will stand up to any comparison of multiple use diamonds without the hassles of re-sterilization and all the hassles that go along with it. They want you to head over to dentalhacks.com/challenge, request a sample of their most popular crown preparation diamond, the 1116.8C, and put it to the test! We think it's going to change your mind about diamond burs! 

Dental Online Training is a new kind of CE. All the benefits of "hands on" CE without the travel! They even supply the materials!

Regular check out or self check out? If you're anything like me, the less human contact you can have...the better! Your patients are no different. They want to make appointments in your office on their own time, and they don't really need to talk with your people! Our friends at Localmed can make that happen! Head on over to dentalhacks.com/Localmed and get a free demo of what they can do for you and you'll receive 10% off set up just for using our link!
