The Queens of Airway are back! Jason and Alan are joined again by Dr. Tracey Nguyen, Dr. Rebecca Bockow and Dr. Erin Elliott! This episode digs deep in to pediatric airway management. We've talked a lot about adult airways, but today gives you insight into the screening, diagnosis and treatment of airway issues in children. There is a LOT to think about here because effective airway treatment in a child might help prevent airway issues in the adult!

Dark teeth, color matching, increasing value...they are awesome and they're as easy to use as flowable composite. Check them out at
