This week Russell interviews Eugene Royzengurt LD which Russell finds out stands for Licensed Denturist. Eugene is one of the few licensed denturists in Utah where he teaches at the GPR program. He owns a small one man lab and lectures as well. Russell and Eugene discuss various aspects of removable prosth for the hour as well as how removable has moved up in promenience in the world of dentistry (at least in our eyes).
Russell was pretty badly prepared for this interview and he didn't even realize that Lance had Eugene on back in 2016. If you want to listen to that interview, the link is here
The link to Eugene's previous webinar that he did for Vita
The link for his upcoming course with Vita on August 4th and 5th, you can sign up online for only 400 bucks which seems like a darn good deal to me at a least.
This week Clint and Russell talk with Dr. Andrew Turchin. Andrew works in beautiful Aspen, Colorado and practices as a Fee For Service doctor focusing primarily on full mouth restorations and cosmetic cases. We start out discussing how Andrew got his start as well as how Dr. Larry Rosenthal is a better cosmetic dentist than you are and why he moved from NYC to the Rockies. The conversation goes to continuing education as there as so many dentists who want to do cosmetics but really don't know where to start. Unbeknowst to either Russ or Clint prior to this interview, Andrew teaches an over the shoulder course called Cosmetic Coaching a few times a year where he shows his processes of diagnosing, treatment planning, and performing this level of treatment.
This week Russell interviews Robert Duque from 3Disc. Robert came down from New Jersey to NOLA to show off the 3Disc Heron scanner to Russell, and overall it was a good week. Russell decided to wrap up the week with a podcast. One of the cooler features of the Heron is the ability to size Kinder zirconia crowns which can be found on YouTube. Also Russell was impressed that 3Disc paired all their scanners with a laptop that was spec'd appropriatedly with their scanner so that the dentist gets the right experience. If you are interested in learning more about the scanner, you can either go to 3Disc.com or call Robert and he gives his phone number in the last two minutes of the episode.
