Very Dental: If You're Going to Do It, Do It Early with Dr. Richard Low
The Very Dental Podcast Network
Alan welcomes Dr. Richard Low of the "Shared Practices Podcast" to Very Dental! Alan has known Richard since he was a dental student helping with the Howard Farran's podcast! He's since created one of the premier sources of information on practice ownership for new dentists, The Shared Practices ecosystem! Some of the topics they discussed were: Alan, Richard and the history of dental podcasting "Getting Things Done" and Merlin Mann Richard likes coaches and personal assistants Alan is uncoachable There is TOO MUCH CONTENT out there The problem with multiple offices (especially with only one dentist) The advantages of being old (on practice ownership, on debt, on lifestyle) Change comes when it hurts enough "Let student loans be the fire to motivate practice ownership." What is Shared Practices?

They help us create content that is, for lack of a better word...Very Dental! The Very Dental podcast is brought to you by our friends at Microcopy Dental. Neodiamonds from Microcopy Dental are very fine. I mean, all of them are awesome, but some of them are actually “very fine.” Specifically I mean the yellow striped ones they call “finishing” diamonds. I use Microcopy finishing diamonds on just about any patient that I might be spinning a bur on. Very fine finishers do the heavy lifting on composites so polishing is simple and easy. I use them to finish crown preps. I’ve been known to adjust Emax and Zirconia with them. Once you try them you’re going to find a ton of places to use them! And just like all of Microcopy’s burs, they’re sterile out of the package and single use means they’re sharp and efficient and can be disposed of at the end of the appointment! Go check them out at verydentalpodcast.com/veryfine (all one word)! The Very Dental podcast is also supported by our friends at Cosmedent! Cosmedent has just released a new composite that you’re going to want to try! It’s called “Renamel Bulkfill” and it’s here to simplify your posterior composite placement. It rivals the speed and efficiency of amalgam but it’s still packable, sculptable and polishes like a dream! You can cure up to 4mm increments, so it’s sure to increase the efficiency of working in the posterior. It’s radiopaque for easy identification on recalls, too! I’ll get a chance to try it clinically next week and I’ll give you my review with photos in the Very Dental Facebook group! Cosmedent is offering a killer 20% off deal for Very Dental Podcast Network listeners by using the coupon code “VDP21” at checkout on their website! So go check out Renamel Bulkfill at verydentalpodcast.com/bulkfill The dental industry is facing a challenging time in hiring team members.

Episode 14- Dr. Richard Low on Military AEGDs and “Is this normal?”
The Dental Amigos
The Dental Amigos had an awesome discussion with Dr. Richard Low on a variety of topics that affect new dentists. Dr. Richard Low is a 2015 graduate from Midwestern University Dental School in Glendale, Arizona who completed an AEGD residency with the US Army and is the co-host of the very popular Shared Practices Podcast. In this episode, Rob and Paul talk with Richard about how the military can help a dentist manage debt and receive amazing post-dental school training. Richard shares his observations as to why chairside clinical mentorship and literal clinical hand-holding as a dentist out of school is so important for a dentist’s career. Dr. Nacho and Richard banter about WHY dentists need to have sounding boards to figure out “is this normal?” on a daily basis. Rob and Richard also chat about the difference between asking Facebook friends for advice (which is great) versus professional advisors (which is critical) on “big deal” life choices like buying or starting a dental practice. Our listeners can reach out to Dr. Richard Low at firstname.lastname@example.org and listen to his fantastic podcast, Shared Practices (www.sharedpractices.com).
