EP099: The Art and Science of Online Review Collection

This interview with Shaun Sorenson goes over his company and the process of online review collection.  Patients need your help to know where the right place to put an online review is and they must use a unique IP address or Google will crack down on the office.  Online data must be coherent and this company will help with that too.  Your reputation matters even online.

EP096: Part 3 of Beat the Heart Attack Gene, Buccal Fat Pad Flap

The episode tears off a big bite of the book review on Beat the Heart Attack Gene by Bale and Doneen and will not disappoint.  There is quite the section on Hormone Replacement Therapy for women that everyone should hear.  I then discuss a large oral antral communication that took two attempts at closure.  The first attempt was with a simple buccal sliding flap and that quickly broke down and failed.   The second successful surgery including using a buccal fat pad flap to advance over the opening.  Check out the cool pics!

EP094: Part 2 of Beat the Heart Attack Gene, CO2 Laser Frenectomy

In this episode, I go into part 2 of the book review by Bale and Doneen and really get into some interesting facts and statistics that will help you understand the risks our patients are at everyday and the risks we have for strokes and heart attacks.  Understanding these risks takes us one step closer to reducing those risks.  I do have a quote from Winston Churchill for you as well as an interesting case with pictures and all of a C02 laser frenectomy and a great picture showing the gingival stripping and bone loss that a high frenum pull call lead to.

EP092: Infection in Jaw Surgery, Beat the Heart Attack Gene, Difficult Exo of #19

In this episode, I start a new book review that might save your life.  Beat the Heart Attack Gene is a really interesting, meaty book about systemic inflammation caused by many different sources including oral sources and how to prevent heart attacks and strokes through a scientific comprehensive approach.  This is a must read for all Americans.  I discuss and interesting article about surgical site infections with jaw surgery and come away with actionable points to help prevent those.  The interesting case shows a cool radiograph of an impacted #20 that destroyed #19 and the challenge of that extraction.

EP091: Surgery 1st with Jaw Surgery, Meetings Suck Part IV, Ear Hematoma

In this episode, I start off with a wise quote from Dr. Suess and move quickly into a reminder that Gordon Christensen is coming to Spokane Oct 27, 2017.  The final part of Meetings Suck by Cameron Herold is done hopefully giving you the tools to make sure your meetings do not suck.  I met this nice fella through the emergency room from an ATV accident who sustained a right mandible fracture and right zygoma fracture as well as an ear laceration.  The ear laceration was repaired by the emergency room and I noted that after the sutures were removed and the head wrap was removed that there was a hematoma.  I proceeded to evacuate the hematoma and the patient did well with all of his injuries post operatively.
