Welcome back for a very special episode of the Noobie Dentist Podcast. In this episode I had the absolute pleasure to podcast interview someone I have admired and respected for a long time, Dr. Mark Hassed! I first learned about Dr. Hassed from an episode of Dr. Farran’s Dentistry Uncensored Podcast where he made a real and lasting impression on me. Dr. Mark Hassed, The Relaxed Dentist, is an incredible communicator and has become an expert in case acceptance and practicing efficiently, lecturing throughout Australia and internationally as well!

This episode is an absolute must listen for all dentists! Case acceptance, from my experience, is one of the most critical aspects of dentistry and is often one where we need the most help. Dr Hassed’s methods and tactics are tried and true and he has been gracious enough to offer up some of his methods on this podcast!

Please be sure to check out his website: https://therelaxeddentist.com for more information about him and his courses. I sincerely believe that this course will offer new grads the best return on investment over many other continuing education courses.

Welcome to a special 2 part series with Dr. Bruce V Freeman (@drbvf). Dr. Bruce Freeman is a well renowned and respected orthodontist in Toronto who works in private practice and one of the top teaching hospitals in Canada where he focuses on oro-facial pain and TMD! He has become a mentor and someone who I often turn to for advice! Outside of dentistry, Dr. Freeman is an avid chef and likes experimenting with various recipes baking with grass fed butter! This 2 part series is special for me as it marks the first podcasts that I recorded in person with the guest.

In part 1 of this 2 part series, we focus on life outside of dentistry talking about various topics including finding a good work life balance, dealing with the ups and downs of being a dentist, burnout and a recurring topic on the noobiedentist podcast; side hustles!

As I’ve often mentioned in my podcasts, I’m a big fan of the long form interviews such as the ones done by Tim Ferriss and so this 2 part series is an exciting one for me! I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did recording them with Dr. Freeman!

Welcome back for another episode of the Noobie Dentist Podcast! Today I speak with an awesome prosthodontist from Australia Dr. Raelene Sambrook. I first met Raelene when I was a dental student at the University of Melbourne where she was a faculty member in the prosthodontics department. Raelene taught us the fundamentals of occlusion and I really admired the passion and enthusiasm in her teaching. On top of being an amazing prosthodontist, Raelene recently completed her MBA as well!

In this great conversation we touch on many subjects including life as a general dentist, reasons why dentists may decide to specialise after many years in private practice, should dentists be considering getting their MBA and of course we nerd out on prosthodontics relevant to the noobie dentists out there!

I hope you enjoy this episode and be ready to learn a lot of great tips from an excellent clinician!

Rank #13: All Things Dentistry with Dr. Ashley Mark

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back to another episode of the Noobie Dentist Podcast. In this week’s episode I had the awesome pleasure of interviewing someone I have looked up to and followed for a very long time, Dr. Ashley Mark of All Things Dentistry. In dental school, Ashley’s videos on his All Things Dentistry YouTube channel taught me so much from photography, to dentures to oral surgery and endodontics. Ashley is one of the nicest, most humble people I have had the pleasure of interviewing on the podcast. His channel has close to 60,000 subscribers and he has published well over 700 videos over the past several years, a massive contributor to our dental community!

Dr. Ashley Mark is a University of Manitoba graduate who has been serving and working in the Canadian Military for close to 20 years. He completed a 2 year AEGD program during his service and has been stationed all throughout Canada, United States and even a stint in Belgium. He also served two tours in Afghanistan and Iraq where he both provided dental care and helped locals launch their own dental training programs. He is currently practicing in Ottawa, Canada with a special interest in Endodontics.

Ashley is a great teacher and has indirectly, through his videos, been a huge mentor of mine. He has a ton of free content on his youtube channel and website. He has also created an endo course online for general dentists wishing to demystify endodontics. I had the priviledge of beta testing this course and I must say that it is filled with practical tips and tricks to help you do endo in your practice safely and predictably. Links below!

Rank #17: NDP Episode 19 – Dentures and Practising Outside the Box with Dr. Ryan “2 Chairz” McCall

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back for Episode 19 of the NoobieDentist Podcast! In this episode I have a great chat with Dr. Ryan McCall out of Indiana. Dr. McCall has a thriving group of practices focused on and around dentures. He has developed a great system of minimizing overhead and working to provide both affordable and high end dentures to his patients, filling a great niche segment. In my conversation with Dr. McCall, I was blown away by his practice model and we talk about my more young dentists aren’t taking advantage of this niche market.

Dr. McCall also lectures about his practice methods and is a guru of social media advertising. He amassed a huge following on Facebook and is currently crushing it on Instagram as well. He has become a great mentor and is someone who is generous with his time, expertise and knowledge. He will be lecturing this week at the upcoming Townie Meeting so be sure to check it out!

Rank #20: NDP Episode 36: Implant Dentistry Pathways with Dr. David Attia

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back for another episode of the Noobie Dentist Podcast. Over the past few episodes I have had the pleasure of chatting with some of the top leading young clinicians in Australia. From each of these dentists I have learned some valuable information and as the podcast reaches its 36th episode these trends are really starting to emerge.

The top things I have come to learn from top performing dentists in our profession from around the world is simple;

  1. Find good mentors
  2. Surround yourself with good and positive influences
  3. Find structured CPD programs. Think depth not breadth
  4. There is no shortcut to success.

Dr. David Attia defines all the above. In our chat in this episode David really highlights the above and demonstrates how they attribute to success. Dr. Attia is a general dentist with a focus on surgery. He loves implant dentistry and has invested considerable time and energy into becoming a leading young dentist in the world of implant dentistry.

I hope you guys enjoy this episode as much as I did!

Ray Dalio often talks about one his favourite principles in life being "Pain + Reflection = Progress"

As dentists, we are performing challenging procedures day in and day out. It is not uncommon, specially in our early career, to face adversity and setbacks during various clinical procedure. Complications and unexpected outcomes are not pleasant and really pile onto an already stressful job. It's all too easy to fail at a procedure and decide "that's not for me" and stop doing it all together.

In this episode I look into this quote from Ray Dalio and talk about strategies for overcoming procedural setbacks.

In this week's episode I summarize what I have learned from Angela Duckworth's book Grit. I recently finished this book and it has become one of my recent favourites and so I am excited to share what I have learned from it. 

Grit - explores what it takes to become successful in any line of work. Is it talent? Is it hard work?

Angela Duckworth concludes the following: 

talent x effort = skillskill x effort = achievement 

therefore, talent counts once and effort counts twice.

She Concludes that grit is the biggest indicator for success and that grit comes from: Develop a fascination1.    Aim for daily improvements2.    Compete with who you were yesterday3.    Greater Purpose – find purpose in what you do.4.    Adopt a growth mindset

Headline Quote

[56:54 - 57:22]

And guess what? Start at the bottom. Work your way to the top. You cannot start at the top. Like you said, it is like, “I am going to crush self-care!” Listening to it, then you are like, “What does that even mean? I do not even know.” “I am going to go to the health foods store and buy bottles of stuff! And then if I see somebody with abs on Instagram, I am going to know that is the key!” Do you know what I am saying? And it is not! You should be able to learn how to breathe like, in your own head!

There is a famous quote from Jim Rohn “You're the average of the five people spend the most time with” which has meant a lot to me since I first read it. To me it shows the value of mentors and surrounding yourself with like minded individuals, people to look up to, people who are invested in helping you succeed rather than hold you back. In this weeks episode I cover how I think this quote relates to dentistry.

The Noobie Dentist Podcast – Dr. Bruce Freeman (Part 1)

Episode Run Time: 01:12:28

Intro

Today, I chat with Dr. Bruce Freeman. Dr. Bruce Freeman is the Director of Patient Experience for dentalcorp, helping dentists across Canada achieve clinical success that results in the best experience for their patients.

Bruce is an international lecturer on clinical orthodontics, facial pain, patient experience, and virtual surgical planning. He is the co-director of the Facial Pain Unit at Mount Sinai Hospital. He further directs the Wellness Program for dental residents at Mount Sinai Hospital, emphasizing how self-care leads to the best patient care.

Bruce is an honors graduate of the University of Toronto. He completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at the Eastman Dental Center in Rochester and returned to the University of Toronto to complete his diploma in orthodontics and his Master of Science degree in temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain. He is also a certified yoga instructor with additional training in breathing techniques, meditation, and trauma informed movement. He can be reached at bruce@drbvf.com.

In the first part of this two-part series, we talk about crushing your side hustle — why it is important to keep your fingers in more than one pie, to allow pivots and to keep options open. We also discuss why it is important to take chances in life, to get your foot in the door, and to not be afraid to fail. We finish up by talking about impostor syndrome and the Dunning-Kruger effect, and how these can affect clinicians in all stages of their career.

[59:31 - 1:00:02] You know, when you talk about goal-setting, you have got to take a feet[step] back and say, “My goal is to be satisfied with the work I do. My goal is to know my patients are really happy. My goal is to know that even if I only have five hundred listeners, every week I get a hundred emails saying, ‘Wow you spoke to me today!’” What good is it if you have fifty thousand listeners and nobody ever writes you? And says “Your podcast does nothing for me. It is like I put it on the background while I am vacuuming.”

NDP Weekly Mentorship Episode 5: The Power of Habit in Life and Dentistry

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to the Noobie Dentist Mentorship Mini Series. In this weeks episode I talk about habits, what they are, and how we can identify and change them.

I got introduced to Habits and the important of habits through The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. In this book Charles talks about the habit loop and how our actions are automated responses to certain cues. We're home bored (cue) and so we head into the kitchen and look through the fridge to find a snack (action) and then we enjoy the snack (reward). This Cue-Action-Reward loop underlies a lot of what we do on the day to day basis.

Have a think about all your actions in a given day. Why do you do them? Most of our daily actions are routines that we do without much thought. The first step towards change, development and improvement is to identify this and take steps to change it.

Headline Quote

[08:14-08:55]

My first piece of advice is: just act! Too many of us just think, think, think and overthink and overthinking means nothing is getting done. And you’ve just got to act, you’ve just got to back your gut, and you’ve just gotta have a crack at it. So you can tell I’m a bit of a risk-taker. But I haven’t had any regrets from the risks that I’ve taken because it has always led to me putting myself out of my comfort zone and that’s where the most growth in life happens to all of us— whether that’s personally, professionally, mentally, emotionally, psychologically. You have to get yourself out of your comfort zone.

Conclusion

Were you inspired by Dr. Jalal Khan’s story and yet, find it difficult to “just act” as he recommends? Do you sometimes lack the confidence to “back yourself” and to value your own efforts and time? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Headline Quote:

1:00:25 – 1:01:16

Jessica: We have this beginner’s luck in the beginning, where things come easy. We’re super excited for it, so it’s a little bit natural, we’re willing to put on the effort and then all of sudden, you’re in the trenches  and it’s not going as planned and you are like “Okey, do I really want to do this?” and it is like “Yeah!”

Omid: This is great

Jessica: That’s when you need to put in that much more and push through because, you’re going to end up on the other side and you’re going to be happy that you did it because the self though and the self-critical thinking that you have, either initially or partway through the process, or even at the end, you’re never going essentially give up on yourself. You’re never going to regret putting the effort and commitment in investing in yourself at the end of the day.
