In this episode I discuss the appropriate timing of a wisdom tooth consult and timing of extractions when they are necessary. I discuss anatomical guidelines and parameters and then go into depth on what my third molar consult is like including a description of the logistics from beginning to end with each team members role.
In this show I interview my friend and trusted Implant Rep, Scott Oyler from Nobel Biocare. We discuss the problem of non-authentic dental implant components and the reasons behind their rise in use and the resulting problems. Many times the restorative dentist is not aware that their restorations are made up of non-authentic components. We also discuss Screwmentable restorations, defining this animal and chat about the indications and pearls of use.
This is the second and final part of the Dental Implant Terminology series. There is a video that pairs with this that you can find at dentistbraincandy.teachable.com
This is designed for the entire team to get everyone on the same plane and level and prepared to answer patient dental implant questions and handle implant cases. EVERY team member should be made to watch this video series upon hire and then at least once a year to hone everyones knowledge and skills. I promise that this will increase the number of implant cases you do.
In this episode, I conclude the Great by Choice book review and then move straight into reducing dental anxiety. This article discusses using
essential oils, specifically citrus/orange essential oil to reduce anxiety in an Oral Surgery office. I then conclude with a simple but cool case of a mucocele removal.
In this episode, I start off with a quote of the day from none other than Walt Disney! If you think you might recognize the background noise in this episode, then chances are you’ve been to Chuck E Cheese’s! This entire episode was recorded there!After the QOD I get into the 3 P’s of a successful practice. These include people, process, and patients. Next, I discuss an interesting case that I saw on a Friday, right before the weekend, of a severe facial infection secondary tattoos numbers 18 and 19. The patient did well after his surgical procedure and being admitted to the hospital for IV antibiotics for approximately 72 hours.

In this episode I discuss the 2016 AAOMS annual meeting highlights that I took away. I hope this summary is useful for you.
My team and I had a fantastic speaker, Dr. Charles Whitney, MD come and speak at Center Place in Spokane, WA. You all had an invitation so it is your own fault you did not come! The presentation was fantastic and in this episode, I summarize a few of the highlights that I got from the meeting.
This talk was 3 hours but in this 19-minute episode, you will get a taste of what he discussed. Dr. Whitney also talked about 3rd Era Dentistry and on the practical side of implementing the protocols he discussed. Sign up now for next year’s CE events including Foundation Training, Implants 101 for the Team and an international well know speaker in the Fall! This is a very special guest and I can’t even tell you who it is until we get closer to the event!

EP055: QOD by Robin Williams, Part 3 of Great by Choice by Jim Collins, Bone Grafting in the Edentulous Maxilla, MRONJ with a severe infection
This week starts with a quote by Robin Williams. I discuss Part 3 of Great by Choice. The article review is on bone grafting the edentulous maxilla and the review of the literature of all of the choices that are available to us. The interesting case is that of a woman with metastatic breast cancer on IV Zometa and developed MRONJ with a severe submental space infection.
This week starts with little message about why a woman’s mind is cleaner than a man’s. I then go into part 2 of Great by Choice by Collins. Productive paranoia and the 20-mile march are discussed. I then go into an article review that discusses the risks with coronectomy or partial removal of lower third molars and why one would consider this and what can happen. This article is directly applicable to any dentist who sees patients with third molars.
The interesting case is a must see! This gentleman crashed head on to a cement truck while driving his F150 and sustained a severe naso orbital ethmoid fracture. I discuss the key elements of the surgery and repair and show some killer pictures. You don’t want to miss these!
EP053: QOD by Don Marquis, Carotid Artery Calcifications Incidence and Implications, Part 1 of Great by Choice by Jim Collins, 3 Dude Syndrome
This week starts with a quote by Don Marquis on procrastination. I then review an article discussing carotid artery calcifications found on CBCT scans.
I love Jim Collins’ work and this book on Great by Choice starts this week and is really a great read and review if I do say so myself! I have an interesting case of a young male patient who was, (minding his own business), skateboarding and fell and broke his jaw in two places and managed not to get any extra oral cuts on his face. I show some cool 3D scan of his bilateral mandible fracture and the final panorex fixed.
