The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan is joined by Dr. Russell Schafer and Dr. Jason Lipscomb to talk about dentures, digital design and AirBnBs. Dentistry has a denture problem. Many young dentists aren't well trained and many grizzled veterans just plain hate them. But for a lot of people dentures are the only real solution for them. Dr. Russell Schafer wants to make them more predictable and profitable for regular dentists. 

  • Russell's digital solution for immediate dentures (3D printing ftw!)
  • What's so dangerous about metal printing? (answer: JLips' jokes)
  • Why are small classes like Russell's so good? (answer: flexibility to cover what the participants are looking for)
  • The "Bob Ross" technique of staining and glazing a denture
  • Learning Blue Sky Plan
  • Printed crowns containing more than 51% ceramic filler = ceramic crown! (aka: we'll be printing crowns soon)
  • Clinux software for crown and bridge
  • Jason's new continuing education venue (smaller courses all the way to bigger courses)
  • Zillow is dangerous
