Dentists and their toys. We're famous for it. Is it a bad idea? Good idea?
Dr. Melissa Zettler joins Alan to talk about some of the toys they've recently purchased (Al got another microscope, Melissa got the Primescan). Is it always a bad idea? What about when it makes you more excited to go to work? Return on investment is often difficult to calculate on a new piece of equipment or fun instrument. But sometimes a toy can give you the shot in the arm that you've been looking for. Melissa and Al are both mid-career dentists and they discuss the fact that this quandary about dental toys might not apply to younger dentists due to the increase debt loads that they face.
Our friends at Microcopy Dental have been making Damn Good Burs for more than 50 years! You need to give their single patient use burs a try! You need to request a free sample of their damn good NeoDiamond 1116.8C. It's a work horse round end taper coarse bur for crown preps and operative. It's a terrific bur by any standard, but the fact that it's single patient use means there's no risk of cross contamination and you always get a great cutting, brand-new-out-of-the-package bur. Go check it out at dentalhacks.com/damngoodburs! Let Microcopy's experience change the way you see dentistry with their damn good burs!
