This week Russell gives his final interview from Smile Con 2022. He was fortunate to have Ayush Bagla CEO of Ackuretta and Ryan Axelson CRO of Ackuretta on to discuss a lot of the non clinical aspects of 3D printing such as R&D of new resins and printers as well as which directions 3d printing is going in. Good interview especially if you want to see non-dentists talking about dentistry.
So Clint is on the road and Russell has been busy so we created an episode last minute. Russ debates whether or not to replace his desktop scanner or upgrade whereas Clint talks about his trip to Pueblo, CO to pick up his old crap and either move or remove it. We have an in depth conversation on how should one equip a dental office as well as the importance of seat belts. Russ discusses his plans to put his dog into witness protection if needed and Clint explains what Kelly isn't excited about him bringing home.
This week Russell releases an interview hot off the press. He has not editted this one at all and literally just finished this one with his new friend Brian Schweers. Brian was kind enough to take Russ's course this weekend on how to do dentures and 3d printing.
Brian is an RDH turned DDS. He talks about how he learned to give anesthesia because Texas board doesn't think Hyg can give injections combine with his experience of working in God's country of West Texas to the naugty dirty east of Dallas. All that being said, we shared good bourbon and just discussed dentistry in general. Give it a listen.
Another midweek episode with Russ and Clint just shooting the bull. Clint is in Spokane, WA working for the man while Russell does the last minute prep for his course discovering how messy his dental office is. Spoiler alert, his office is very messy. We discuss what are the most important parts of a CE course and of course we both come to the logical conclusion that asking the question "Do you like music?" to all CE participants followed by playing a song is the most necessary part of any CE course.
This week Clint and Russ interview Dr. Brian Stoute. Brian is a dentist in DC who focuses on doing implants. We discuss his dental journey such as dating and marrying his now wife whom he taught while she was in dental school. We also discuss how CE has changed in the past two decades.
Another bonus episode this week: Clint and Russ talk about dealing with patients in general and ask the tough questions. When refunding a denture should you break it in front of the patient? Should we maybe give out more narcotics? Where was Lucas in this episode? Will Clint take over Lance's practice in a Game of Thrones-esque way? These tough questions might be answered in this podcast.
Also if you want a bit of lagniappe, stick around at the closing for Russ and Clint discussing different practice models.
