The Very Dental Podcast Network

Today's episode features Dr. Wayne Remington. Alan and Wayne have known each other for a long time as Wayne was one of the people who influenced Alan to get into dental operating microscopes! In today's episode we discuss:

  • How Wayne first became interested in dental microscopes
  • How can a microscope prolong your dental career?
  • How can you let a patient know how skilled you are without having to tell them?
  • Dental microscopes and the ROI in dental hygiene
  • Quality vs. Ergonomics...which is more important ('s a tie!)
  • Dental it a thing?
  • Why buy multiple microscopes?
  • Training on the microscope at Wayne's learning center
