The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ed Feinberg at Janary's Voices of Dentistry meeting. Ed is a restorative dentist and teacher who has one of most interesting stories we've ever heard on the Very Dental podcast!

  • Ed's been practicing dentistry since 1977 and went into practice with his dad (Dr. Elliot Feinberg)...a pioneer in FMR and restorative dentistry and now Ed practices in Peoria, AZ!
  • Ed's 100,000 photos and cases traced back to the 1950's!
  • Ed doesn't struggle with recurrent decay because of his 3d tooth preparation techniques and subgingival placement of margins on uncut tooth structure
  • The "Mason tooth jar" concept of crown margins
  • "Butt joint margins cannot be sealed" and why zirconia crowns are prone to recurrent decay
  • The lost art of casting metal and how Ed has started using milled metal restorations!
  • Copper band impressions (aka: impressioning the root surface below the margin)
  • "There's never enough time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over."
  • Why model work matters (and why they should be doing model work in dental school)
  • Multiple appointments allow for a "fresh set of eyes."
  • What did Ed's practice look like?
  • How implants changed the "crown and bridge" practice
  • Ed's "ground game" marketing his practice
