The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. Nazariy Mykhaylyuk is a phenomenon. He's a visionary microscope user, an amazing restorative dentist and he's changing how dentists learn restorative dentistry. Jason and Alan were able to see his exquisite presentation at the Spear Summit and soon sat down with him to talk. Nazariy is from Ukraine and he has a really great story. We had a chance to discuss:

  • How he started using microscopes (spoiler: HE'S NEVER USED LOUPES!)
  • Working in a truly family business
  • Why microscopes are a necessity in his practice
  • His transition from analog dentistry to fully digital
  • His incredible, all-inclusive teaching center
  • Documentation, both photography and video
  • How important is the rubber dam for Nazariy?
  • A really novel way to present treatment
  • Nazariy's social media journey
  • The team he uses to create amazing documentation and videos
  • Digital veneer workflow
  • 3 day turnaround for digital veneer cases!
