The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz is not your run-of-the-mill prosthodontist. Nope. Not even close. She wanted to be a professional hockey player. But then decided on dental hygiene. After she became a hygienist, she found that she loved teeth so much that she wanted to go back to dental school! Her background is unique...and so is she. Pamela owns Salem Dental Arts in Salem, MA and is a column editor at as well! She is a featured lecturer on prevention and risk assessment in dentistry. She's got a lot to say about some stuff that some dentists gloss over. Can we really assess patients risks in such a way that we can prevent tooth decay? She sets the record straight in episode 107 of the Dental Hacks!

In our Brain Trust segment we dive a little bit deeper on endodontics. We bring back endodontist Dr. Rebekah Lucier-Pryles from episodes 99 and 100 to engage with general dentists Dr. Mac Jones and Dr. Craig Heins (along with Jason and Alan) on all things endo. We talk hand filing, file choices and even get into some endodontic horror stories (hypochlorite accidents anyone?). If you liked our first trip into endo, you're going to love this!
