The Very Dental Podcast Network

Is preventing cavities as simple as changing diet? Is it all a lack of home care? In episode 108 we welcome back Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz to talk more about what dentists and dental teams can actually do to prevent dental caries!  Her background is unique...and so is she. She's probably the only dental hygienist/prosthodontist you know. 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.

In the second half of our endodontics focused Brain Trust segment we talk complications, irrigation, obturation and all kinds of good stuff. We feature endodontist Dr. Rebekah Lucier-Pryles from episodes 99 and 100 to engage with general dentists Dr. Mac Jones and Dr. Craig Heins along with your trusty co-hosts. The journey we take helps us understand that endodontists are people, too.
