The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan welcomes back Dr. Jeff Rouse to the Very Dental podcast! Recorded at the Spear Summit 2022 back in September, the conversation is wide ranging as it tends to be with Jeff! Is Jeff the airway guy at Spear? Yes. But that's not ALL he does!

  • Gregg and Jeff text about what's wrong on social media (it's a LOT)
  • Predictability = "I don't want anything I did to break, I don't want anyone I touched to be in pain."
  • Jeff on cementing implant crowns
  • Jeff doesn't do online arguments any more
  • Jeff loves to argue/engage in vigorous's nothing like online arguments
  • Rouse on Smithson
  • Rouse on Bob Winter (Jeff's teeth look amazing and they're just provisionals done by Bob Winter)
  • Spear Summit is Gregg's meeting
  • How to talk about airway with YOUR orthodontist? Is ortho changing? (aka: can you work with the convenient orthodontist?)
  • Give up instead of fighting with the wrong orthodontist
  • Orthodontists will never fight you over 4, 5 and 6 year olds!
  • Jeff on in-person seminars coming back!
  • Spear (FGTP) is as good for the new grads as it is the grizzled veteran!
