How To Write A Book In 8 Days
"The first thing that i want to get into is for of you launching your next chapter for those of you in transition. One thing that a book can do is actually launch your next whatever it is or actually fuel your next purpose and so this lovely lady was me quite a few years ago. Actually my teeth were wider back then in that photo and cosmetic dentist so on the outside i had all of the traditional trappings of success. But there can anybody guests i was. I was internally emotionally dead. Those dead to the world. I had a relationship that was crumbling marriage. Actually that was failing. And i had no idea who i was. Can anybody relate to that story. Yeah yeah so. How do you go from that to then this well i ended up leaving the relationship and leaving everything behind that i knew to start new and today you guys are all in the room because you want to have either transformation for yourself for your business or for what is next to come right right awesome. So part of my journey was then. After i left all of that left. The career sold the practice and started pretty much over. I actually started to do more research. And because i'm a science geek at heart. I was in dental school for a very long time. I really wanted to know how leaders made decisions because we didn't really learn that in medical or dental school so that was one in two. I was always a big fan of behavioral psychology and human dynamics. Since i was a little girl so curious ity me to over forty countries to really understand how we process our emotions and why that's so valuable in leadership and then of course created a movement of emotional grit hence launching my next chapter so number two. What book and actually do for you is to differentiate you and since we have so many coaches and teachers and educators in the room you could probably relate to this that it can be a saturated market right. Yes yes. I'm getting some nods great and so i'm going to talk to you about matt's and matt. We actually spent some time together on one of the retreats that i did to get his book out and he by training was a financial planner for about twenty years and he worked primarily with baby boomers but he had a very personal story and his mother passed away with one hundred thousand dollars liquid cash in her bank account. What that meant was he really wanted to revolutionize the whole retirement process. He wanted to give other people the ability to have fun while they're retiring. Not worry about being penny pincher anything like that and they can actually enjoy some of their later years in their lives and so we created the retirement dream maker and so what that did for him was not only add some depth to the work that he's already doing in financial planning but he also merged it with personal development. Can somebody see that how that can actually add a differentiation factor and it was because of a personal story. Each of you have personal stories that you may or may not be okay to share however you may not realize how actually can impact somebody else. Credibility and trust is number three. That's exactly what a book can give you credibility and trust and we talked to you a little bit. I think in its presentation about the book of coaching. And what that has done in the actual goal is to transform the lives of coaches. The subtitle in the book of coaching is four. Extraordinary coaches so that in and of itself is really to claim the fact that we actually want to be able to serve love and be that for a lot of coaches that come through our virtual doors

"That will work for me. But like the things that i dream brought to me is like there are a lot of people with complex needs. They need they need to be diagnosed and treatment plant in such a way that they can understand their condition. A i need to be able to do that. I hate delivering. bad news. always feels like delivering bad news. It's not really delivering bad news. It's delivering news. It's only bad if it's only bad when they understand it to be that in other words if you can do it dispassionately. It's not such a big deal. But i i struggle with the fact that i see a lot of new patients in particular that just don't understand the condition of their teeth at all. They don't know where they are. And so i. I struggle sometimes to help them understand that. I also hate removable hate partial dentures. I'm terrible at it. And i just don't like doing it and i don't like to do surgery so all of a sudden like i like working on teeth basically. I think we're on healthy teeth. I can put feelings in crowded. And that's that's basically what i like to do. Well that limits me like crazy to. There's a lot of people would say you'll never have a big thriving practice if you can't do. The surgery can't do the bigger cases and they're probably right on some level but so i. I woke up in a sweat though the morning with this problem with this concern. I'm curious about how others feel this way in in if if there's listeners who have moved past this i don't how to handle complex cases. I don't know how how to organize my thoughts. And my my treatment plans and that sort of thing i'd love to hear from you. I'd love to hear from you. On the the dental hacks nation page we can start a conversation or you can email us at info dental dot com. I'd love to know how you've organized this in your office in such a way that that you actually use it. Because that's that's the frustration with me. I don't know like i've got a scanner. I think to myself man. If i had scans in models of these things it would be much simpler for me to to take and photos are great too but i i kind of like the three dimensional aspect. The other thing. I the thing i thought of in the middle of the night to thirty in the morning. What's the easiest way to look at a scan or.

"Sometimes they're they're dental. Need is overwhelming and i know there's a lot of people out there. That are very comfortable with teeth placing implants same day and doing it. All on four. And do i don't have that training i honestly. I don't like surgery enough i there's people that tell me. They think they can turn me into someone who likes her. I don't like surgery enough. That gives me anxiety. I'm just not big surgery guy. But i think probably one out of every four patients in that shows up as a new patient probably has needs almost point that direction a lot of times with these patients the other thing. That really frustrates me. Is that these patients. Come in not really even knowing your understanding the kind of shape. They're in in so that puts me in a position to how do you. How do you explain to a patient. How bad of shape. They're in When they don't know that a lot of them come from another dentist where they've been. They've been not treated for perio or they've not. The dentist has been limping along with them. And i'm not gonna lie to you. I n that dentists. Sometimes i got a lot of patients where i'm literally limping along in. I've had such a long. I know how it happens. I've had such a long history with some of these people. I've been practising for almost twenty three years or more than twenty three years in some of these patients. I had since nineteen ninety eight and if i had known the you know in nineteen ninety. Eight nineteen thousand nine. What i know. Now i probably would have done things a lot differently. But i didn't and so you're sort of you're sort of stuck with the you made twenty years ago in how to treatment plan in diagnose these patients and it's really hard to change the what you've done with these patients really hard to say okay. Let's step back and take a look and see all the stuff that i've missed and the things that i've done these patients times don't realize that they have these problems and i find that overwhelming. I still do feel like man. You know people who don't have a problem with just looking at a patient and explaining what horrible shape they're in and this is why they do that i. I'm super jealous of you. I guess i. I guess i'm a little soft on that in most of the patients that i have trouble with this our patients i've had for long term that i haven't i haven't been able to be straight with them about their condition or i didn't know how to diagnose in treatment plan their their condition to be perfectly honest. I'm convinced that you're training has.

"Every new dental grads should read the book I. Really Really Suggest it. Why is that? Because when you're in dental school, you're in a model where you can only do quadrant dentistry. You don't do same day dentistry and you don't do comprehensive and I think these are the three pillars successful do. The same day forget about dentistry and try to do everything. That is a lesson that it takes some ten years to figure out and it's funny. All the crazy ways dentists. Get trapped in this number. One is they you know someone comes in and they say, Oh, you need a root canal, but you know we don't have time because we got we gotta get you out of this chair. 'cause we have another patient scheduled in. Fifteen minutes. So we gotta get you out of here and flip the chair. So they do all that, and then the next face doesn't show up and it's like then I look at the overhead. Okay. So the overhead I'm charge a thousand dollars for Crown but the assigning up for a volume discount PPO. The you agree to do a volume of patients for six fifty. So you've already you know. So you're already at thirty five percent overhead just on your fee reduction and then you gotta pay. You know staff twenty, five, percent labour, ten supplies, five percent whatever and you know and I'm like. Well, where's this opportunity costs I don't even see it on your statement accountable I mean, this person was here they wanted treatment and you got him out of their room because the constraint was an Pretoria and I'm looking at your statement cash flow and I don't see this constraint showing up on the statement and cash flow, and then you look at the guys who net the most money they don't all have an emergency. Room they usually my even have to especially if they're and ended on us or oral surgeon, 'cause that oral surgeon those ended on us, it's the eighty twenty rule. It's a proto affect I mean, the Italian economists who figured out in Italy your neighbor growing up that eighty percent of the land in Italy was owned by twenty percent of the people and he started looking in and everywhere he looked he kept finding this eighty twenty rule and my gosh, the So these specialists they'll say, well. About Twenty five guys referred to me but it's like seven guys the that make I make semi everything and like an end like know these seven guys give me everything great molars all these guys just give me a retreat a broken files something failed and I'm GonNa spend so much longer on that. I don't even know if it's profitable and it's a pain in the butt So when that guy calls and says, Hey, Ben, can you favorite have this patient care? Is there any way you can see her today? He he's not going to tell one of the savetno because you might call another ended on us and he never sees you again you know what I mean. So those specialist man they have to and by emergency room and when you tell me things like even merger room, it's room for. Okay. Well, I'm looking at the schedule room for right now and there's three people scheduled in it today one yesterday to tomorrow an emergency room. Is No one's ever intentionally scheduled there. It's for walk INS emergencies. It's so the person answering the phone can say, well, can you come down right now and then and then so so you know and by the way when they tell me, they don't have room for another opera Tori I can find the room every single time and they say we'll do this is my private office I. Say well, Superman worked out of a phone booth why you need ALL THIS CRAP And And then the same day of course, they wanted it's all impulsive. I mean, who could who could read any economic journals and not know that people are impulsive the by it on a whim? They have too many cocktails on Friday night and the next Sinoe down buying a new car and You know I'll never forget one time I walked into a pretty impressed but they they must have not. They must couldn't tell I was Irish but anyway is in Chicago and that Miracle Mile or are skull something like that. By where the ADS. I walked in there and I saw some cool shirt in the window. The first thing that guy asked me says, what are you doing? Beer wine vodka my said vodka on ice and he made me a double vodka. Nice. I thought Oh my God. This guy's a casino. He's signing it. Oh, how y'all liquor it up and drop a thousand I mean I. I was impressed. By how smart these guys were playing? But. So what else do you think these young kids need to now? I. Think. Another thing is, is that has nothing to do with dentistry it kind of focused on your finances. I see a lot of my classmates got out of school and they went straight to the Tesla. The Lexus dealership I mean I. It's great that you became a doctor but I I really think things are just starting right now. You have half a million in debt you have to be smart about what you do. You can't just just because you have dr next to you name that you deserve to drive a BMW it is not true so Well. Why? Well, first of all I want to ask you this do you think I'm not living below your means as a special? To. Dentistry physicians and lawyers more than the average person or do you think it's goes across the board? I would say we'RE PROBABLY WORSE THAN OTHER PEOPLE Because we've been in school for so long no money that once we finally get a nice paycheck we're a little. Yeah and They they don't have a dental office budget like like you know between you know the end of the year between. Christmas and new, year's and all that time off. You know you're trying to write your end of year letter. Evaluate the goals of last year trying to set the goals and budgets and plans for next year and ninety percent of dentists don't do that for their business or their personal life, and they just always live above their means. They don't realize how stressful that's going to be. And even in our backyard here, there's so many kids at graduate that they could go back and live with their parents. And I sat in front rooms where I've seen, it offered I because they're thinking about I want to go to Scottsdale and go to a club and dragged some person back to my man cave and all this stuff and the next thing you know they're they're overheads up they got a nice car. They got a nice house. They got a nice this and they don't. They don't even own any business assets that are making money like a savings account where you know I mean, why do we have the Rockefeller Center? Because he knew everydollar he put in the bank It would pay him a nickel until the end of time, and so the guy's been dead a century and those nichols all add up to billions of dollars a year funding all these research,.

"Did we know it was like smoking cigarettes going in there eating but How things. Change. So. Funny. So actually have not heard your podcast, but I heard a lot about you on another podcast that I listen to He's from Arizona I'm trying to remember it's called. Shared. Practices. PODCAST. Yeah and so I heard a lot about you and I was. GonNa Start once I was done finishing. I really wanted to start listening to yours and I had no idea that you were based out of PHOENIX. Out of Arizona like ideally once I graduate, I do WANNA. Come back to the valley, and so I think for me my biggest question is, is it worth coming back to the valley or JUST ANY PLACE DENVER? Very Saturated Phoenix also is extremely saturated. And I'm not sure if that's the wisest decision right after graduation or if I should go to a place like maybe Tucson that is not as saturated yet. Will Demographics do matter and I can prove it to you. You could graduate school and go set up your dental office in Zimbabwe, and then we'll. We'll. We'll talk to you. I mean demographics matter. You know you don't want to go to the Congo if you could go to Scottsdale. Right. But within within the United States, there's a a company called the PUGH and they're they start off with It's it's a non-profit thing where they're trying to save the oceans. The oceans cover about seventy percent of the planet but the night's biggest most waited concern has healthcare, and so they do a lot of seven dentistry and one things you do demographics and I've seen it here a lot like like you probably want to live in Scottsdale I can just tell by the. All the bling that you're you're scholar, you don't look like an. Junction, you don't look like A. Girl. said it for the trailer park, but the thing is you can live in Scottsdale and. Commute thirty minutes work. But what I see is people will wake up in the suburbs where there's in Phoenix for there's a dentist, two thousand, they will get in their car and they'll commute for an hour and when they get out of their cars for every five hundred people, and then you know it's like my God. If you would have gone the other way late I opened up in Phoenix I I opened up on the very edge of town one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven was only one more mile, and then it went to road where now whereas your practice always hooky forty. Still. Kinda town though but not not as much anymore. Yes. Thirty two years ago. It was just Elliott Than Warner than dirt road but now it goes Elliott Warner Ray. Chandler Paco's. So we've added a couple three miles whatever, but you know kids come out of school and I'd say demographics matter you know go to Florence they don't have a dentist go to Illinois they still don't have a dentist, and now I want to go to Scottsdale and Scottsdale enrich areas and acre of land might only have one house with two people in it where you go to a poor part of town acre of land might have a an apartment complex at has five hundred people in it. So demographics completely matter and you just need to do your demographics I mean Eli still doesn't have a desk but when. I came out of school, the hungry ones, the networks, the ones that came in Aachen your and by the way thirty, two years of watching this, just a litmus test of the dentists who came by wondering school knocked on the door and asked me what I thought of this and that just the fact that they are they physically proved they're searching their networking they're running for mayor and I watch those kids for thirty two years. They all crush it. I don't know one guy they came by knocking on the door hungry for information that didn't find it and make it and I would tell those young kids I say, Maricopa. There's hardly anyone down there. Employee still doesn't have a dentist and Maricopa like what is Marco but thirty minute drive south and the first ten guys that that went down there I mean they were getting a hundred and twenty new patients a month they just crushed crushed crushed it, and so you know there's I mean cities twelve percent of the cities in the mid. West don't even have a single dentist. And that's all on the Pew Research I mean I, couldn't believe how big some of the towns were in Arizona. This still don't have a dentist don't have one, and then you might be thinking. Well, I know I wanna live in Scottsdale and Working Scottsdale. Rob a bank, but there's consequences to robbing a bank and I would rather go to get demographics and your of the age where right around the corner is driverless cars. So how you're sitting there now on your laptop doing your thing you know we're we're probably just a couple years away where a car is going to be a box you're going to go in your box you may take a nap you may set your dash she may watch a movie and thirty minutes. Later the alarm was dean you've arrived you know now now that might be an hour. So I I don't think the commute. Is. Going to be an issue with driverless cars but I do think demographics matter number two when you go to California. Says San Fran is overpopulated doesn't need a dentist and they all have one thing in common. They were all born in America, which is the biggest weight against you're predicting your success because when you're born in America you're like well I graduate from dental school. So I deserve a new car and a house and a lot of blaming and fancy vacations. But when you're born in Africa when you're born in India when you're born in Vietnam, the tell me in San Fran. Well, you know all. The Americans meaning people born in America they all work Monday through Thursday eight to five. But what you're in San Fran by six o'clock, there's no Americans Open. It's only as Vietnamese and they'll get a phone call to fake they come down they'll do a root canal build up and crown scan it with a Syriac millet out mullet and an it'll be twenty, five, hundred dollars on their debit card I mean, she twenty five hundred dollars and I can't tell you many times I've seen this where. Especially, if they migrate here from Asia Africa South America, a lot of times they'll come out of dental school, start their own dental office and I'll say, do you have a car? No, do you have a house? No, Parma know where do you live I live in the office I, mean, my office I bought this office it was fifteen hundred square feet and I and my mom lives with me and I mean there's like three people living in the back room and then all of us and you meet those people are not born in the united. States. You meet them and five years out of dental school. have no soon, loans have no debt on their practice and they have three or four, hundred thousand in cash. If they're born in America as soon as their cars paid off after five years, they go buy another one for five years I mean I. I'll be fifty, eight, this month, August? Twenty, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight, I have friends my age that just upgraded to even bigger house and it's on a thirty year mortgage..

"Early special today's August fourth and today is my thirty year anniversary. My first lecture in August four, one, thousand, nine, hundred, and my comptroller. Stacey made me a pillow and I just can't believe thirty years ago today I gave my first lecture New York City in Alley gave it because I grew up in Wichita Kansas and I wanted to see New York City. So me and my school buddy from dental school Craig Steichen who was also Denise's student Doctor Denise Kate Castenbaum who I. Best Teacher Casey love that woman to death. She was so smart. She Knew Everything About Radiology I mean she was always the smartest person room but we wanted to go see New York City. So I decided well, I'll go lecture and it's a very important point I want you. Guys understand the questions will, why did I go give a lecture I mean I graduated in eighty seven again, my first lecture in ninety. What's all that about all? My Dad had you know he was had nine sonic drive-in franchises and for each ten to twenty I really felt like I knew the business of franchises for Fast Food and I love my dad death he was the greatest guy in the world but my next door neighbor was Kenny Anderson the dentist and I go. To work with my dad and my cheeseburgers and I go to work with Kenny and he take x rays than by the way you know there was no computers back. Then there is no smartphones the the hottest technology I ever saw was Kenny taken an x ray through a tooth and developing it in a dark room where you dipped it in differs and I was love at first sight and the sixth grade I never dvd one percent but the reason I went and lectured is because I knew that I knew a lot about business and I tell all the other people but it put my name in the ring and I'd meet people like you and they would you know you you form relationships and life is not what you know. It's what you know and who you know and it's not working and it's crazy thing in dentistry because the people that get into dental school they got as in Calculus and Physics and biochemistry, and they basically all sat in the Library for eight years dentist more like scientists than they are politicians are all this stuff like that, and you always go into a medical dental building and they'll be like eight denison there and I'll say okay. Who's the last guy you ever invite over to your house for dinner of never invited one for dinner I? MEAN THEY I mean? They never even to lunch and you see all this weird behavior like young kids will get out of school and they'll say, well, I WANNA learn implant. So they'll get on a airplane flight clear across the country going to a hotel and pay a stranger a thousand dollars like dude, you you had to fly over your hurried on us. House. I mean, how could you be in Phoenix or Denver or you know your town and why would you have to leave your town? Let alone the state let alone the country I. Mean People are going to Dominican Republic to learn implants and they're. Like well, he must not like me or maybe maybe I smell or maybe I have a problem I mean it's all in networking same thing about getting sued. Half the dentist in your five Mile Radius over your house for dinner and a patient comes in and whatever you guys work the problem of of the case and sometimes people came in to me and said, Oh, my God, I'm going to sue because he did this out. Tell you what just settled down. All. Redo it for free. If you don't go crazier, he's a good guy he tried hard. It didn't work and it goes back and forth. So you know get out there and pressed the flesh run for mayor if you're thinking about going to. PHOENIX. A handful of companies, Benko Burkhart Patterson China, they sell all the supplies for the whole state and then you and they know which areas of town is all there over thirty over sixty over ninety account receivables and it's a really bad area to go. Then they know the area where everybody's calling up because they need another auditory, they're expanding they won another room and you see people that will go through ten years of their life in town and they didn't meet any other dentist. So I know it's counterintuitive Cypress and likes to just be alone in the library reading a book and I love that more than anything I mean I love to crawl up in a hole and read a great book but sometimes you gotTa. Get Out there and run for Maher and if you're not going to get out there and press another thing I did when I opened up my office. I knew people were going to the pharmacy and saying I got a toothache. So I take and assault whatever I had every pharmacist and their spouse over my house for dinner in the first year. Of all the farms on all the Chiropractors, all the Natural House, the MDC, pretty busy and pretty. Intensely busy and probably only got maybe ten twenty percent of them over my house but it's always been about networking. You know what I mean. So so this is the only one on that ramp because these my thirty year anniversary of lecturing and the only thing I had to tell them was what I learned from my dad which which I could go into if you want me to or I'm here for you. So I'll answer questions whatever you WANNA do. You remember seventy questions in particular. You can feel free to yourself and ask. GEICO, I know you have a question. I an issue bet got three questions I didn't ask better. Odds you. Airasia I'm in Scottsdale and back at home. All Yeah Yeah. So you know what's better water burger are the the. It's always going to be in and out I'm not. My Son Ryan loves the THE IN AND OUT Burger but I still love sonic I mean I. Spent ten years in a sonic drive-in and there's nothing better than Sonic drive-in for this boy. She grew up on. So I totally understand it's my comfort food and we thought we were so lucky back that I mean I was the most popular guy in my class because after school if you're home with Howie, you'd stop by his. Dad's restaurant need all the sonning drive in French fries. We thought we were so lucky little..

"Is Your Path. Been like to becoming a dentist okay. So my path was a little bit. Topsy Turvy one. Yeah Roti so I. I majored in Undergrad in journalism and mass communication and below. I had a thought to be a multimedia journalists. I was going to be ready new stories and things like that and then I kind of also wanted to. Things is not like the other. That's fine you know. And so I- minored in chemistry so I was taking all of these like hard science classes or ago. Biochem all of these things in addition to like the classes that I thought were so much fun which was Multimedia Journalism Writing News Writing Mike. How to gather data all that stuff and so I just Kinda wanted to keep my options open and I was like. Why can't I do both like I really had this thing growing up like no one's GonNa box in want in both in I went ahead and I did my masters in health communication at Georgia state and so I was figuring out how to let compile like Super Complex data and make it easily tangible for the average person just now can I package data. That's like science related and ways that people can understand and then I did and then I school after that. And so now if you see my instagram page. It's kind of combining these two worlds of like taking all nation. Just trying to say that it's so apparent your two passions in your instagram page. Because you do all of your your tooth Tuesdays are so fascinating I really I really I love love the data on it. It's it's so great moved on a really beautiful job with yours social media platform in finding those. Yeah so that's been like my journey into net show like the mining those two worlds and then still just like wanting to make positive like health impact difference in like the dental community as well so I am here so what is what is dental school. Look like do you guys have clinical rotations. Do you get to. I know you really have a passion for Aesthetic DENTISTRY. Is that something you have to go in at the beginning? B. Like now this is going to be my specialty or focus or do you guys just have a broad spectrum and then you go to school for an extra couple of years for the Catholic so Depending on what specialty you. WanNa be in Then you'll have additional schools schooling. Excuse me so just to start off. You HAVE FOUR YEARS OF BATTLE SCHOOL. So four years you have Like maybe a year and a half of the tactic or maybe two years of didactic which is just learning the sciences of the entire body so like we learn the health sciences just like every other health profession professional so then after that Or kinda like alongside that. We're also learning the specialty of oral health or ORL- Anatomy had an Economi Disease Control of the oral region pathology of the oral cavity so like everything is very very focused alongside of our other health science classes and then in addition to that we're also learning hands fields. Also so I don't know you but I never had like I know like a miniature hand piece of like how did you dentistry when I was a kid like it not like I had never picked this up? I was like what are you talking about? So this is a new hand skill or like a set of skills that you learn in addition. Learn all of your other stuff too. It's a lot going on but it's fun as well going maps you but it's fun and so then. Our last two years of dental school Are completely dedicated to patient care. So then that's when we move into the clinic setting we see Roy patients. We have grow cases we are doing actual dentistry patients for the last two years of dental school. So the first two years of practice working on a mannequin learning that health sciences last two years our patient work working with patients. How manage patients? And then after that. If you say you know what I really liked doing now or I'm really like Doing surgeries or I really like Kids you can specialize in those specialized programs usually last maybe from a year and a half to two. Maybe three years after their four years of dental school is for internship or or donate experts. It's just like a residency. Like Med students have to finish in the NATO they residency is the same concept. So you're you're still a student basically but you're like a student resident At that level. And then you see more complex cases and all of that stuff so you like panel go one step past General Dentistry Tacoma specialist in your field.
What's the History of the Tooth Fairy?
"We spoke by email with Christina. Kill Grove and enter apologised science writer with a background in archaeology. So she's used to dealing with teeth and bones but even she wasn't prepared for the site of her seven-year-old daughter extracting her own upper right central incisors in an effort to cash. It in kilograms said I was initially inspired. Track down the source of the tooth fairy legend. When my older daughter lost her first tooth she knew the tooth fairy wasn't real but wanted to know when and why the story began. Even if you aren't familiar with the tooth fairies origin story you've likely heard of her or encountered a kid like kill ribs who's perhaps a little overly excited to earn some dough. The folklore dictates that when a child loses a baby tooth. They should place it under their pillow at night. And when the awake the next morning they'll find their loss tooth has been replaced with a small amount of money. A courtesy of a magical and seemingly enamel obsessed sprite. I'm like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. The tooth fairy has somewhat enigmatic history. Kill Grove said. I was surprised that the tooth fairy is a comparatively new legend. She started to take off with the boomer generation getting paid for their teeth and was cemented in encyclopedias and the media with genetics and while other childhood characters typically have roots and religious. Traditions says quote the secular tooth fairy is really a modern invention. So who is this mysterious mythical creature and why is she so dead set on swapping baby teeth for cash? We also spoke by email with Dr Sowell Colombo d. m. d. of the little royals dentistry for kids in Jupiter Florida. He said some have suggested that the story of the tooth fairy dates back to north traditions from the thirteenth century. When it became a tradition for tooth fee to be given to a child when they lost their first baby tooth the more modern tooth fairy as we know it was first referenced in an editorial from Chicago Daily Tribune in one thousand nine hundred eight. Which at that time. Valued the tooth fairies contribution at five cents compared to an average approaching four dollars a tooth today so kill grove pegs. The popularity of the tooth fairy to the childhood of the boomers and Colombo dates the characters birth back to twelve hundreds. But there's a third possibility writer and publisher Michael. Kingston explained any twenty fourteen piece for salon. That the legend really took off in the nineteen seventies when a woman named Rosemary Wells took it upon herself to thoroughly research report on the tooth fairies. Saga Kill Group said. Dr Wells was a professor teaching scientific writing at northwestern. University dental school in the nineteen seventies when she realized there was little information about the origin of the tooth fairy legend. She worked on tracking down the origin and surveyed Americans on their tooth fairy practices for twenty years before starting small museum in her home dedicated to the tooth fairy. Kingston said I love when people accidentally become world experts on something and Rosemary. Wells is a great example of this. She asked a simple question followed her curiosity and ended up with private museum in her home dedicated to the tooth fairy. How do you not root for that? As Winston writes the tooth fairy is a relatively recent creation but quote rituals surrounding tooth loss. Date back much further than that. He points out that every single recorded human culture has some sort of traditional practice centered around the disposal of lost baby teeth and researcher be townend broke down the various rituals in an article in the British Dental Journal in Nineteen Sixty three titled the Non Therapeutic Extraction of teeth and its relation to the ritual disposal of shed deciduous teeth town and said that cultures tend to do one of nine things throw the tooth into the sun in to fire between the legs onto or over the roof of the house. It in a mouse hole. Bury it hide it. Place it in a tree or on a wall or have the mother child or an animal swallow it. Americans however spun the legend in a unique way blending and augmenting existing traditions to result in benevolent fairy who rewards the dental milestone with money and instant points out the tooth fairies star rose at a time when Disney was introducing tynan cuddly characters. Who are perfectly in line with the tooth fairies sweet and supernatural image if you're a parent and unsure of how to handle the tooth very topic with Your Young Tot Colombo has a suggestion. He said we encourage parents to call tooth fairy hotlines for the first tooth lost as well as remind them to put the tooth under the pillow. So the tooth fairy can work their magic and yes. Googling tooth fairy hotlines does turn up all sorts of helpful results including APPS and local office voice mailboxes. And if you're curious how much the tooth fairy is doling out. Nowadays researchers found that the national average was up to four dollars and sixty six cents as of two thousand sixteen almost eighty percent higher than the average in two thousand eleven which was around two dollars and sixty cents. But if you're a freaked out and frugal parents. In twenty twenty you can breathe a sigh of relief. A twenty eighteen study found the national average dipped back down to three dollars and seventy cents so despite the impact of inflation it appears even the tooth fairy has her monetary limits.
"dental school" Discussed on Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran
"In two thousand eleven I went to Undergrad at Creighton and stayed in and Swanson Hall and almost went to Creighton and following dental school. Jason completed a one year eighty at UCLA in Westwood California in two thousand twelve. Dr Genta moved to Chicago from UCLA TO CHICAGO. Were you drinking. Were you lost. How do you go for more? La Later Chicago on purpose where he joined decision. One dental partners. Who at the time was a group practice with four locations decision? One is now grown to fifty fifty plus dentists and thirty one locations in Illinois and Wisconsin since two thousand sixteen he has served as vice president of clinical affairs for the group and plays an active role in Dr Recruiting Training Mentorship new practice acquisitions and mergers Dr Genta is passionate about the success of the young doctors and teaches a course is titled Life After Dental School at multiple schools across the country. Who the reason the real reason I brought him on shows? I'm trying to get him to put that as an online online. Ce Course on dental town. Because I think it's imperative I actually had your Boss your founder and owner Doctor Allen. ACL A sierra no he was on dentistry and centered episode nine. Oh six and you know what I really liked about. You know when people say this is a dentist I own. DSO that starts to dentistry and ends identity. This is about clinical dentistry. Isn't it. Yeah that's that's really And what what attracted me to our group. And that's why I've stayed with the group and and passionate about a our growth in our future. So thank you very much for having me on. It's an honor I know you talk about a people. Listen to you as their commuting and there are new Grad. That was me in twenty twelve. And I've listened to you on my commute to work everyday sense. It's you know. Life's about continue annual e learning. And you offer that with with your podcast on a daily basis. So it's an honor to be on here. Well it's an honor that Steve Jobs figured you're down to get that Internet stuck in my Motorola flip phone. I never saw that coming and I think when he IBM technically the first smartphone. But jobs obviously one who pulled it off like an orchestra and I just saw that and I thought Oh my God You can get someone like you to come on. But you're never going to go to Salina Kansas and talk to their study club. And you're and you're not gonna go to childrens taxes let alone Katmandu Nepal and what I love about. What jobs did as he's now making making knowledge zero cost? I mean anybody in the world can log onto their new radio which is a podcast with a new TV which is Youtube and watch guys like you. And so. So I'M GONNA I'M GONNA cut right to the chase. Is Dentistry censored the American Association of Dental Education. They always put out What what I consider just propaganda and I wish they would stop? They say things like well. The average general student comes out with two hundred and eighty nine thousand dollars to loan does not no no no quit lying. Twenty percent of those dental students or Dads moms paid for dental school. So why are you averaging down the median number and then another five. Ten percents military grants or scholarships. When you just look at the people because they don't want to tell you the truth that they've taken their I completely off cost and now Donald Schools one hundred two thousand dollars a year so Jason? They're coming out of school. Four hundred thousand dollars in debt and they're scared to death and I like about you. Is You guys a bottle. A lot of practice so if they want to come out of school by practice been there done that is they. Sit there and say you know what I got too much debt to go. Buy a practice. I'm going to pay down some debt. I'm GONNA work for a DSL but they hear that there's good ones bad ones. I mean I could ask you a one hundred fifty questions but I want to start with the. I'M GONNA start with the dental school graduates. She just got out of dental school. She's four hundred thousand dollars in debt and she's scared and she doesn't know if she wants to go by the average dental office cost seven hundred and fifty thousand. Do you think she should go out of school. Four hundred thousand bat bar another seven fifty and wake up Tuesday a million three in debt. You're starting out with the tough questions like you know there's no cookie cutter or right answer with that question. It all comes down to the individual. Really you know what they want. Do they want to be an entrepreneur or do they want to just really focus on on on clinical work and being a dentist. You know as dental school's hard and it's expensive and unfortunately the curriculum regula rigorous that. They're not really getting the opportunity to think about questions like that until they get past boards. You know you always hear oh I gotta get it through school and then I gotta finish boards and then all of a sudden it's march and you get these individuals looking for a job and unfortunately the I'd I'm not sure that they've even started to think about some of those financial questions Four hundred thousand dollars is a lot of debt. Were seen that. It's a lot of our Doctors that were hiring and recruiting and The the group space is offering those people who just want to practice dentistry the opportunity to come out and to make very good living but if someone's entrepreneurial and they wanna own their own practice and the enjoy the business side of it I I still think it's okay to take on that huge debt burden and have their own practice but you gotta think through. It can't be just this decision you make on the fly. You have to really know so that you want to be not just a dentist but you want to be an entrepreneur you WanNa do accounting on a do payroll. Hr All all those type of things is what being an owner of a dental practice entails. But you know she. She hears things that I can't go work for a DEA. So because they'll have some office manager is not in a dentist. Say Hey thirty percent. New Patients have route planning does and and every repack it that's over five millimeters deep house to have a perio chip because there's a insurance code for that and and they think that they went to school eight years of being a a dentist and now the new dentist is an office manager who never went to one day dental school. Do you hear that in Chicago. Land Area Oh yeah and in I mean as someone who was in their shoes you know back in two thousand twelve. I kind of thought that way. Also I I didn't Tony Better I think the thing about group practices is they're all different and just as you would vet an office that you're going to buy in the private practice realm you should vet the groups that you're talking to As you alluded to in the beginning and you know our group was started by dentists both of whom still practice I myself am identified and what we say the two Denison. This is the to do. I say that right now. Yeah Dr Mike and AJ acernote and which ones the older brother Dr. Mike is the older brother so so. That's always the better. The mom always likes the older one I would you. Would you agree with that. He would be quick to tell you that he is the federal looking. Better dantesque ask. I'll let those to really be the older brother. If that's what he said that Mike is the older better looking more handsome brother. He's mom's uh-huh favorite and then his little brother is. Aj what was it about Aj that could attract and retain you from Hollywood. To The frozen Rosen Tundra of Chicago land where even the woolly mammoth left. So I grew up down stayed in Central Illinois Surfing. Am I just north of Effingham. The map tune Charleston area so You know I might families from the Midwest Midwest S. person at heart. I did my Undergrad in Saint Louis I then was in Omaha. I'll be honest Los Angeles is beautiful. Santa Monica's gorgeous But I'm a midwest person I wanted to be closer to my family. I Love Chicago and and I'm glad to be be here. But what what attracted me to our group and specifically to doctors age. Mike was the fact that they were dentist. US and I could tell that the dentistry was the most important thing to them. You know what we teach our doctors and what we really tried try to harp on is if you're really patient focused patient centric and you're doing the standard of care. The rest of it will follow. You know the the business will figure itself out if you're doing the right thing for the patient and That's not always always the case in some of these. DSO's is a some of them are very very profit-driven like like I remember one of the so Arizona's ground zero for DSO's. I'm eighteen point six percent of all the Dennis work for DSO and when you look at the full distribution five states have one percent word eighteen point six. But I remember one of the first ever met. It was twenty years ago and I went in there and I said why are you taking Pano Bite Wings. Upper on every single kid that walks in here at any age and Oh insurance pays for it a hundred percent said so. You're going to take a pano on a baby. I know diagnostic reason because I mean and so so so mike at the the brothers. You know if you're not gonNA in a treat your patient with respect and the you have no respect for yourself and if you're gonNA build a team I mean I posted this yesterday. I'm going to get word dry because I don't WanNa say I don't Wanna I don't WanNa chop up my words I said this The most important function of every dental leader is to attract attract and retain the most talented individuals. They can find join the team and endlessly toil towards a shared vision of how reputable dental office can be organized to provide provide dentistry. That shows respect for your patience your team when yourself and you know what when you're doing crap dentistry you don't even have respect for yourself if you know if if you can't do dentistry on that pay that two year old is if that was your granddaughter your Knees Your Mom's sister When once you can't can't tell the truth and treat other people like you would wanna be treated and you've lost all respect for yourself? Dot was a very eloquent way of describing the dental industry and As a group you know from the top down we have to really work hard to attract and retain our doctors. Our office managers are assistance. Are High.

"Have to have to kind of stay where she where she can have a job. Which means I have to kind of stick to an area like Phoenix Valley But I think in my class there's people that want to do all sorts of stuff. There's people from Virginia like from from even like close to West. Virginia that WanNa go back home I've got a good friend of mine. WHO's from Connecticut? I'm I'm in a community where think the dentist to patient ratio was was like one to seven hundred and he said you know what the dentist I worked for doing. Great I WANNA go back there. He told me he had a job for me And that's his plan lance. Oh you know it's kind of like the whole gamut. I've seen with my classmates and to be honest with you. I think going back to the corporations thing I think that this is where corporations instill in need because you know wherever you stand on dental therapy thing The corporations are going to be able to operate at lower margins than your typical sole proprietorship can and so the corporate dentist can operate at a lower overhead than private. Dennis can well. Yeah he said Yeah. I think if you're talking about like a large DSL like Harland like a heartland. Yeah exactly Harlan. To be a perfect example you guys can go into a community And they can under price a dentist which which is not good for the soul practicing dentist but if they're going to a community where there isn't a dentist then they're actually fulfilling a need. That's not being met. Fifty percent of Americans I think is is how many are not seeing regularly right So you know if you do have corporations kind of going into these communities that could actually be a good. That could be a positive so back because I want to thank her. Hartland can go into a community and do dentistry cheaper Well first of all they can negotiate much better rates on supplies and things like that because because they're negotiating with a thousand practices as opposed to us. You know single doctor. Trying to negotiate the prices they can also negotiate better insurance rates because insurance company's GonNa listen to them when they have a thousand practices or when they can when they're the main player in an entire region and they can go to the insurance company and say pay US more. Or we're going to drop you. That doesn't matter so much if a single dentist says I'm going to drop your insurance but when they're GONNA lose four hundred practices. That's that's a big problem for them. What story I wish you do on your website his I I do I because when I look at Dental School Digest my first thought is obviously if one of my four boys wanted to go to medical school dental school law school I would wrote a check. Yeah but I think before I would have someone might like ny Nyu cost one hundred and ten thousand a year. Yeah I think there are probably five hundred thousand or so for the weather in New York City. It's like I would cost of living if I would say son going to pay you Donald. So why don't you go live in the Caribbean. But why don't we do this for half the price and you can catch tune on the beach so my question is I know. Obviously when you're a lawyer the pedigree matters I mean the difference in law school from Yale or I you know it your pedigree always matters law school sure but it doesn't in dental school or med school. See I disagree on that I disagree pretty well. Yes yeah so you know one of the reasons. I chose my school was because of what we get to learn their. I mean we're doing things at our school that that few if any other schools are doing and and I'm not saying that to Brag. I'm saying that because I wanted to. If I was going to spend a lot of money on education I wanted to come out of school being comfortable doing things like emplacements or hybrid supported over an interest. Things like that that you don't get to do it any school that you go to and then when you can offer those procedures to your patients then you're going to run a practice that potentially you're going to have more in common things like that. You wouldn't have had if you had to go take C. E. Courses and spend money to be out of your office learning those things after you graduated from dental school so for me. I think that if your dental offers those kinds of things you should definitely pursue that and medical schools. I think it's important because it's it's a little different structure but where you do through. Your residency is dependent on where you go to medical school. So if you don't go to an Ivy League medical school year probably not GonNa get into the best residencies and if you don't get into the best residencies you're probably not going to get the best jobs so it's a little bit different than than the dental world in that way interesting and So if someone said to you so I can get into the inexpensive state. School are should I go to the private hootie Tutti Expensive School And they're right now. They're in high school right. They're they're pre dental or another at issue I they probably don't go to you anymore. Because no one goes that you've anymore because if you just drive by this university real slow with your windows down they'll throw a diploma your accede the real the real students are Asu. I think we all agree on that but it so if they were in issue right now and what would you say that she the lower cost state school or the expensive private school My rule of thumb is always if you can get into into what cheap ski but it has to be a cheap state school like it has to be cheap because their state schools that are not cheap out there then go there. That's there's nothing wrong with doing that. That's probably the best thing you could possibly probably due for your financial future but if you don't get into your state school or if your state schools not cheap then go to the best school you can find and that's to me that's just the best way to go so you know where the the cheapest best state schools are the cheapest best day schools. Yeah I don't know why no tell me. Do you have an answer to this okay. So when they formed the lone star state if you Texas Texas Texas Schools Yeah Phoenix to El Paso so the having patients in Phoenix for thirty years. El Paso's six hours away. If you live in El Paso Houston's twelve hours away so the regional managers for the El Paso like walmarts and things like that adderall from the Phoenix Division. So a lot of your Arizona companies. Their territory includes Little Paso because L. passes twelve hours away from Houston. That's that's how big Texas they form that state. It was just so insanely huge. There's a big block. Nothing in the middle so he said this is a A trust land and and whatever you do with that it can only go to education. Well fifty years later they found out it was all oil at thirty eight hundred feet under the limestone so they just so if you look led the top the top three libraries in the world that have over five million books in Texas because they just they can't spend the money it specifically says as you can only spend on education so Texas like when I have gone into a Texas Donald School watching them growing teeth in petri dishes and I mean the the funding that the guests so so yeah so Texas is a A Free State No Texas back literally early exist so back to growth We talked about fillings crowns clean exams xrays. They're all growing globally one and a half three and a half percent the only double digit jet. Implants clear liners Do you feel like How was your education? And organizers ten specialties how was your orthodontic education education do your classmates feel like they can go out and do a clear liner invis- linking so kind of the so one of the Nice things midwestern. Is that our last two years of clinical. So we're we're in the clinic day pretty much every day. Seeing patients we set our own schedules. We do more on treatment planning and so if you want to sort yeah pseudo specialized immed- ing if you really want to do a lot of implants cases you can kind of design your curriculum to be. I'm going to do a lot of implants in those two years. But you have to. If you're gonNA do something like that it's going to come at the expense of something else right. So there's people at the school who have done a lot more cleaner therapies and probably not done so many endo's or implants and the opposite which is more where I fall into like done more of the Endo's and the implants and I haven't really done much of the clear liner stuff so oh so for me coming out of school the Kleiner thing. I don't feel like I know enough to just get started doing that. Right away But there are people in my class who I think are totally ready to do. So 'cause they've seen a lot more cases than I have. Did you feel like you know if you earn school of asking for help with Indo. NOVEM ORAL SURGEON TO HELL NO PROBLEM FROM OPRAH or orthodontist. Same White Oh yeah absolutely so. If you're in school you had an orthodontist and he would help you you do the case. Yes so what we do is So for example. I've got a patient. We're doing braces on. He's in his late forties. I think and and we did the whole thing with the orthodontist downstairs Mounted all the the brackets and wires and everything like that with the orthodontist. They kind of went over. Everything with US showed us how to bend the wires. There's and all that stuff right. But but that's an N. of one I've done one set of brackets and wires personally and to me. That's not enough to go out there and start doing that on a lot of patience right like you know doing talking one time is not mastery Whereas other people in my class ethic of done seven eight you know complete brackets and wires so you know when you look in the news news for implants? Implants isn't really seem to make the news. I mean I I never really see implants news. Good way either way. I mean it's just a good whereas whereas worth I mean smiles direct CLO- line lawsuits. I mean it's like I feel like orthodontics in the media's like I'm Beverly Hills housewives nine one one or whatever yeah and implants is kind of it. I just saw city day about From political scientists eighty we nine percent of everything the US Congress and senators talked about voted on everything from nineteen eighty. Tau Never discussed the media. They only like the fire and rain. Subject Charlene and N in media My God smiles. Drug Club and Biz lines in..
"dental school" Discussed on Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran
"Student loan debt and cost tuition There's the loan. The the they're saying that the average students coming out about two hundred eighty five thousand dollars in student loan debt. But you're in a private school. Yeah mid Western in eighteen till it's higher out in midwestern. Oh yes much higher. I think my school my classes average was anticipated at almost five hundred thousand in total loans. So Oh pretty heavy heavy debt burden so when you were asking about DSO's and do I think that you know females are going to go work at A. D. So. I think it's more likely that recent grads are gonNA work at Dso's because we just have to go somewhere and make money right away to pay off those student loans So I think that's oftentimes you know why. DSO's are running a successful trustful business model where it's easy to pick up new grads. Who are you know heavily encumbered by debt? Well it's funny. How history always repeats itself and this is just the reinvention of the indentured servant isn't it I don't know I? You know I think the thing about dentistry. It's expensive to get into but it's also a protective profession in so we can go out there and we have sort of a class of protection that I can't really think too. Many other professions that are afforded that luxury of you. You just not anybody can dentist. Not Anybody can just go out and opened a dental practice in most states. Arizona is an exception and so that actually makes it so. Oh that in again in most states you as a dentist are sort of privileged in that competition is a little more limited than if just anybody could go out there hang their shingle and say I pull teeth for a living Come to me you know what I mean. So I think that Y- it's expensive but you know dentists also make a decent income And and I think that if you're careful if you're smart about it you should be able to pay back the student loan debt well an indentured servant with someone who typically worked four to seven years in exchange for her passage room and board Coming from one country to another country But Yeah I mean you look at if you open up a restaurant Um Anywhere in the United States first year twenty to forty percent bankruptcy in dentistry. If I loan you seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars for a dental office office you have about a point four percent bankruptcy so it is so non-competitive I it just so non-competitive I mean when when when people bull tell me. Dentistry is competitive. I always ask compared to what your talking about restaurants dry cleaners. I mean I mean competitive to get into but once you're in what you've gone through the older I mean right and that's the beauty of the profession and that's kind of why we go out there and spend so much money on education because of that so what would present of the classes dad painful at all. I don't know actually more than I had anticipated. Though I'm surprised at the number of students who tell me that their parents are paying for their education so and when their parents earns for their education or they almost always dentist. oftentimes they are There's been a couple whose parents were like executives for big companies But yeah usually so. You're always Hanser. You didn't meet her in dental school. No we actually met About two years before I went to dental school. Okay into your for your So what so. What percent of the class do you think Y is planning when they leave to go do they want to be incorporate dentistry versus private practice? Associate I mean. Do they prefer heartland Aspen Rob Roxana Stephen Torn Pacific dental. Do the before the big chains or would they rather do the solo private small deal are there advantages to the big chains means versus the small town guy. That's a great question. I think that overall most of the students in my class would like to associate with an existing established average dentist It's just that there's not a lot of opportunities out there. Relative to how many people are graduating. There's just not a lot of dentists that are looking for an associate or can can even sort of fill the schedule of associate So I think that's part of the issue and that's part of the reason that so many of my classmates will end up at corporate you know. DSO's because they end end up not having the options to find doctors out there if there was an awesome program in place to to match graduates with doctors looking for associates. It's that'd be awesome you know and I know you have classifieds and things like that on dental town but I think that a lot of docs just the opportunities. Nobody ever finds out about them. So and wh- would Why do you think that is so? So okay. So basically we saw so in one thousand nine hundred eighty there were more than six thousand graduates a year and and but anyway Industry Yeah I'm trying to find that number. How many new graduate each year? Maybe now it's about probably about that a little bit about sixty two hundred. Yeah and and so you think they're having a hard time finding associate jobs. Yeah I think so You know I think a lot of times there are doctors out there. Who may you want to associate? Maybe don't they don't really think about it. They're they're busy doing their job. They're busy kind of being a dentist. They don't necessarily want to think about you. Know do I wanNA hire and associate on right now Because I've talked to a couple of dentists now who won. I sort of floated the idea by them. They were like. Oh Yeah. That's an interesting idea. I hadn't thought of that. Why don't we? Why don't we talk about that But they weren't actively thinking about doing it so yeah yeah and when you Do the kids. It's feel like they know how to do clinical tramway and do they come out with confidence they think. Okay I can do what I WANNA do. Muller Indo what they WANNA do th they have confidence or the scared. Her House of it's been so long since I was a senior in Donald's remember it really is hard. I mean it's hard for me to remember this picture when my four babies swab now those days have five grandkids. But so I. It's hard to remember what it was what you were thinking when when I was your age but I'm confident scared. Where's the class mentality? I think our classes really confident you know. I mean there's always going to be a segment of the population that is more hesitant or reluctant to do things. But I think that you know we're graduating some of the best young in the country. I'm I'm really proud of my class. I think they're doing awesome stuff They're coming out doing everything implants You know we've got students who have done You know lateral Sorry lateral approach sinus lists and things like that with your surgeons downstairs You know just really incredible things that you don't usually see people in dental school doing And it and we do it every day at the school so so so talk about your website. What we're was What was going on your life that that Brought that along well I was. I was a computer programmer at the job developer in in Chicago and Just Kinda my downtime. I was like you know I'll just make a web time. You mean when you're watching the cubs. Yeah right because nobody likes. Yeah Yeah No. When asked time I would just kind of work on this project which was Dallas School Digest? The idea was that I would try to blog about my journey through dental school But then getting married having a baby and then also just how busy you are in dental school. It's been hard to kind of keep up with that as consistently I would have liked the big thing that I've been trying work on. He's actually the school pages. which is my idea is I want to replace the A lot of information that you get out of the eighty. EA guidebook you so you have to buy that and it's it's like twenty bucks or something or thirty bucks. I can't remember how much it costs but to me. I feel like that. That information should be free So I'm trying to try and put as much information formation out there on the Internet as I can in terms of like what what's the tuition costs of the school. How many students were accepted? How many males to females? What are the GPA requirements? Things like that. So it's called Dental School Digest Dental School Digest. I love it would Is your the market more pre dentist or during dental school. It's kind of both. I mean the idea. was that what you know. My grand vision was that what would happen is that I would have students. Students going to different schools writing about their experiences at those schools so that pretense And people at other schools could see what's it like at Marquette. What's it like at? USC See you know what kinds of procedures are they doing You know what school do I want to go to that. Matches sort of my philosophy and how I want to practice dentistry I thought it'd be great but let's Del students are busy and You know they're about as busy as I as I was. And I realize that people don't have time to write about their experience so much. So so what would you say a two now. So let's say you're going to finish the YOU'RE GONNA pass your boards your You don't know what you WANNA do that. You don't know if you WANNA be associate or start your own. No Yeah. I haven't decided yet exactly what I'm GONNA do. there's a possibility of doing a residency. Just there's there's one that I think is really interesting that I might. I might try to do so. Let's talk about that so it's actually at implant pathway here in Tempe suggestion moody. I Would Justin So they've gotten hd they're opening up and they have an ad leave just they just. They just opened it so I I was interested in trying a one year. Eighty GD program Yup with implant pathways Sir and is it going to be working on. Mike is involves homeless. I know he was part of I. Think so yeah most shelters and yes so I don't think it's like expressly for the homeless population. I think what it is is that it's it's more like word of mouth people coming in. Who can't afford implants usually and they come in? Because I think it's a five one c three organization so I think they can place implants glance for free in these folks that come in so I don't yeah I dunno if there's an income requirement or anything no. Yeah so if you join that agency would you Would it costs money or would he pay you to work there it's through Nyu so They have a stipend university. Yeah that's the langone program. So they they run all over the country so there's actually already five. Here's Lucy these already. NYU programs in the city. Yeah so there's the one at the Saints Depaul. There's there's the brighter way there's There's like I think there's one at native health and these are all different places you can go crumbles Bozell. Yeah Yeah you don't know who funded that whole brighter way. No actually don't the the wife of the founder of go daddy interesting there. You go daddy's right here in Phoenix. And of course he made a gazillion dollars in his wife's got a real soft spot for the poor. And it I went to a fundraiser night the other night and almost everybody I talked to in their deal got most of their money from go. Daddy's founders wife. So she's she's a special lady here in the NYU has five eighty g per exactly. Yeah it's four or five hundred for the international people in the United Jose. Obviously New York City's the biggest city. It's the largest city and their dental school. NYU I think graduated seven percent of all the dentist Santa's America Nyu so and they have five eighty G it's a ged. Yes advanced education in general dentistry. Why how well I am? So when I look out at Global Dentistry two hundred thousand dentists in the United States or two million around the world the dental GDP in United States. I shared about one hundred seventeen billion but for around the globe about half five hundred billion half a trillion shows you that seven and a half billion people really..
"dental school" Discussed on The Dental Hacks Podcast
"They tell you what you're learning when you get out you get to pick what you want to learn to look at deeper but you are should be a perpetual student. I mean here's Darren was talking about yesterday. Sometimes what you need to learned forced upon you and stuff starts failing because you don't know that much about a clue right that was that was kind of what he said but I mean like you have choices that you can go in all kinds of directions yeah. There's I mean there's a lot of good education out there. I think he finds something that that clicks with you. Speak with you and you may be follow. Follow that pathway but dentistry is changing engine super fast so the digital piece is changing the airway piece of changing so depending on your dental school. You know you go to U. Penn there's it's basically almost all digital you go to another program and maybe you're going to get very little so you have lapd piece to learn airways probably not spoken about at the same level that worried all that it most dental program so there's a lot of information out there. That is just ready for you to start learning once you once you graduate yeah definitely one thing that I look at for maybe for a first year student I when I went to dental school. I went to University of Minnesota. I'm from Michigan. I know anyone there. I knew no and I didn't have any family didn't literally we didn't know anyone that wasn't in the dental program on some level or another and that that gave me so little perspective outside family close by so it's not like on. Sunday could go have dinner with my parents. So my perspective was really skewed. It was like all I knew was dental school in my friends who were dental students what they were doing being in what they were worried about and what they're like. I would tell a dental student. Make sure you have something outside of like if I say the married people or people with kids kind of handed over me on that deal because they had no choice but to have something outside of dental school like they couldn't you know what Yeah Biochem is coming up and you've got the exam but you also have children in you have to put them to bed and that sort of thing in that probably seemed like a pain at the time but the reality is that they had something that they were anchored to outside outside of dental school. I and I had no perspective and honestly it framed a lot of my life. There and I'm thinking to myself but I think that's normal. I think most dental students students and I would just like you. I was just immersed in school and I didn't have. I mean there's things I like to do. I just didn't really do them because I was just immersed in it so your life balance starts off really horror and skewed but that's what you know and you kind of carry that forward into your regular lighten so and I think having an outlet when you're in school to be able to separate your life from being dental student is something that's hard to do. Ooh But probably super important to Kinda shape. How you turn out down the road married people if they're if they're married survived dental school? Mary people really had to figure that out of course spouses had to be very they had just be really flexible my mom my mom and dad got married two weeks before my dad's started dental school and so. I've heard the stories stories you know my dad's best friend from dental school was essentially married to my mom as well together. He was always around and stuff but but I gotta got seventy six even more south but I just I laugh because my dad did have something outside dental school. I didn't have time for it necessarily but he did and I wonder sometimes if 'cause I was. I was not very healthy on that into things because it just like you know how how important I remember I remember my parents came into town in Minnesota for some reason I was really big fan of garrison keeler the the NPR show and we had tickets to go see him. In cast I had to cast a bridge cast gold ground or something and we were doing at the house in the lab was okay but I had miscast my dad was helping me miscast and I freaked out like and we ended up not going to the show. Only only parents were in town from Michigan for that yeah because I- miscast I had like like you can sort of see that it is like going into the show was the right thing to do. Maybe pleading mercier doing it later and just sort of that kind of perspective is really. I think some people and maybe I'm the the only person that's like this but I think there's probably some people that struggle with that stuff. Maybe you should have done that before well before the show. I think you're saying you're onto me. There's not of that to a time management. You learn that you have to learn time management right. That's that's it continuously kicks. Your ass yup like lake that is that is real. I mean it's like keeping on schedule is is a thing of bluffing about Jay. I'm early everywhere in my life. I'm I'm early because I'm sort of obsessive about that and I get to Arizona. I can't be on time to save my life for anything I could get up like I said I got up at four thirty this morning. I was still late. I don't even know high so I was I was outselling aren't is on the highway or guy exactly. It's it's just kind of perspective. Sometimes dentistry lends itself to that obsessive sort of focus prosthetics me may specifically to but it's one of those things where that kind of perspective I think is maybe the people teaching and dental school didn't know explain that they're just holding it together themselves. It's not like they were able to say. Look you need to take you know you're taking this too seriously. You never heard that you never heard when I was in Dallas but you never heard anything. You know what it's going to be okay. This is gonNA work out alright. You're GONNA going to be fine. Everyone goes through is I never got that would have been helpful. I don't think it's probably still the way it is a little pat on the head. It's still K- that would have been good but I never really. We got much of that. Stress is a great motivator and dental school. My Cortisol levels man. They must have been something else. Golf was my outlet and dental school and so much so that we had a buddy whose ended on us now and you know I would say hey. What are you doing because my patient cancel golfing. I said hold on make a phone. Call calculation cancel my patient to and spend the afternoon golfing. That was our that was our outlet. Now we had our we had our stuff done so it was like no stress which is kind of fun but that was I golf more in my entire life more in dental school than any other point up which doesn't seem right. You're one of those guys allies. Step down and Porsche love. They're trying to cast gold so so true so you got your heading down to lecture again in a few minutes. I'm going to this afternoon. Okay you're up. You're up for that up in. That's the treatment implant course here and you teach a whole bunch between now and when we see at the summit then that's right Yup. It's I'll be back and forth between practicing at home and then come in come in here and teaching more classes wanted to learn to fly a plane just just cut out the middleman a little bit there. That sounds like a lot of work actually oh you got time for a Hobby Greg. This was fantastic really appreciate you spending some time to listen. I enjoyed it. Always fun talking.

"We said okay good opportunity for us to to upgrade our scopes update our scope and so are you. Are you prepping are you prepping teeth underscores most of the time we're just finishing margin or is it so the way. I use it know that your wife is a scope fanatic Sheila. She's scope all all the time scope and and it's great it really is i. I don't utilize it that way I use eight power loop with different light sources and I use this scope more as a finishing Gerbil sure yeah so. I'll do everything with without it and then I'll bring it in finishing unless I composite. I think a scope is fantastic because composite. It's so hard to see if you get the colors in the ballpark. That scope allows you. I mean I look at it. Eight power loop after looking at the scope and go doesn't look like I'm really wearing loops right now nine nine. The South scope is once you get used to it yeah. I I mean I the people who can use it for everything. I'm so impressed by that but I also know that they've huge learning curve for that yeah for sure finishing the distal lower molar get out and I'm sure she does because I know people that I know she uses it for everything I mean meet some of those Eastern European guys misery for instance who's going to be speaking yep meant asked everything like and I've talked to those guys those guys in in Ukraine. They never had loops. They started started with a skill and I think that's I mean that's what makes it so user friendly because it's that's in their comfort zone yeah but once you start using it you really do notice the difference difference. Yeah I mean I'm a big fan but I'm also. I'm not as disciplined about his light to be. I'd like to be that person but I'm not always there's the other thing is if if you're really disciplined with a rubber dam particularly do directs and stuff like that like like a microscope in a rubber dam thus all the Donna season hand-in-hand. They go well together. The Rubber Dam actually takes a lot of visual information away because it's so much almost drowning right now. That's very interesting. That's cool no hunchback's over. They're either. They all back you said something about you have to light source with the tell me about your loops because I'm interested. I have a light light source. That's on my loops but it's the power is just not that bright because you lose so much light through. I mean the increased magnification or so we were at a dental meeting in a few years ago now in they had some some like. Oh Lottery type prizes for people that attended because it was a smaller group and so I was actually speaking at it but my wife was there she was attending she got the grand prize which was this surgical headgear type of light source and so she got it but she's a scope user so so guy so guess what I got so I have adopted it now that I call it mine. She says I'm letting you borrow that still unloaded. It's amazing yeah and it's you know I don't want to add anymore. Wait to my head but wearing it as a as a hat if you will you don't even know what you've got your loops and glasses and then you've got this thing on your head. Yup Okay. Do you know offhand and what brandishes I. I want to check it out. I want I can find out off. The top of my head will not mine so I listen. I'm borrowing it but it was everybody wanted it. Everybody's he's like. Oh my God. I wish I would've won that. I've seen a bunch of like okay I have. I have an optic wireless sorry designed for Vision Wireless One and and it works pretty well. There's like if you want to see me in a rage. Watch me working while the battery face berries fades quickly. How does it blink. Does I wish it would I wish it would. I wish it would blink while it was still bright. It doesn't it fades and what happens. It's just settle enough to pass me off my and and you really just can't see as much. It's it's like once you start using that magnification. You're starving for light. There's never enough never enough using it for operating and stuff and it's like like I I'm irrational about it. I like to stop. It just drives me crazy so I said I don't like to any cable. If I turn my head and can feel pull pull of cable. That's also rage apparently have rage issues. I'm just realizing this just lay down on the couch and talk to Greg Martin all right. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA GONNA ask you a little bit about processed. I want to know your thoughts on digital workflow for restorative dentistry because I know a lot of stuff has come out literally since we've probably talked the last time and I'm wondering wh I know that's not spears focus but you do have this whole thing this whole Sarah Wing in the building so it's not like you've never seen such a thing curious like how do you feel. Where is there going to be a point where digital workflow might be something. You're interested in or not really now. That's not date me me and say that I am analog guy and that's all I do. I just assumed as a prospect honest that you were yours. Scott you would scoff at anything digital no so we actually have started to in the practice and delve more into the digital workflow. Here's here's and this is what I've only said. I can do things pretty well in in the analog world. So when would I want to move into digital our window. I think dentists should move into digital when you can do a better than you can do you it analog when you can do it more efficiently right quicker and I can. Maybe do it cheaper. cheaper is a hard one because the the cost of getting into the digital world might be might be a proudly on front end but then loaded but once you get through that if I can do it in the digital world and it's actually cheaper for me to do it that way but I can still maintain the same level then it'd be a fool not to stay in the digital world. The challenge that we have in the digital world in my opinion is you you either live in it or you live in the analog world. It's hard to play back and forth but the problem is at the end of the day. We actually have to be in the analog world because his we're analog people digital patients well. They don't pay their bill. That's so but but I can do diagnostics digital right scan and virtual waxing print model and I can use that but then I'm back in the digital world so from a lab perspective you know there's pieces of it that flow but otherwise you have to stay in that world so I'm using pieces of their work in my practice. When will that come to play in the education portion of uh-huh at at what point will be the thing. y'All y'all say it's time do at digital inclusion class. Let me do analog inclusion class so interesting e. I don't know so in the tipping point will be for dentistry if you run in circles. That are all digital than you think everybody's digital but if you actually look at the numbers there's it's a small percentage of people that are digital now. You can be digital by saying. I'm a I'm a Sir Cad Cam dentist where I prep. I Scan I seat but taking digital into the way we teach here at spirit. Occasion is more complex comprehensive now. All the digital piece is a little different than that the challenges there are small numbers of people that are using digital that way. They're all over social media but that's a it's if you think about the numbers of dentists out there if we were to say we are all digital here at spear that challenge would be. We're now cutting out eighty percent of the dental population so that's that's you know we have to be able to live in both worlds but to go all in. I think we need to talk on on both sides it. It can be done this way or it can be done this way and that's kind of where we are. Now is I'll explain it analog because the concepts between are the same but also explain that there is a digital route for those who are in that digital world. Here's a another way to do it so we kinda bounced back and forth at this point and obviously when we I talked to frank last time he was we kind of went a different direction than we expected expected and he was talking about data and a lot of the studies that ease and and things that are coming out as far as what's actually being done around the country and that have obviously comes into play when you're designing these courses this is a that is becoming more and more. You're figuring out the sweet spots for. I think you always have to keep an eye on what's happening not in just your universe but what's happening in dentistry in general yeah. I mean that's I think we've done a nice job about that. Here is thinking three steps ahead of where we are and I think you kind of have to be looking. Where's where's the next avenue for us to be able to focus focus on so we can stay relevant. I that was that was a fascinating interview because it was not where we expected to talk about that. Data's it's amazing. It's just like the the there's so many things that he said I was surprised about and and even with the the one thing that stuck out to me was the implants and keeping keeping native teeth much longer and and the way we think about it. It is a little bit different definitely. There's there's a huge push now to take a tooth out to the problem could take it to take it out and put an implant in implants have their own problems though and once you do enough implant dentistry you're going to want to start start saving more teeth because you see all of the other avenues that that implant have their own unique set of problems that are sometimes more challenging to resolve Mhm We spoke to I spoke to a guy that does all enforce a lot in Texas and he says the biggest thing that chap's his ass. Everyday is all the repairs and stuff that he has yep glorious stuff that you're that you're doing. That's the that's the biggest part don't talk about the the side pieces of what you have to do to maintain it yeah. They don't have a lot of lecture slides preparing dentures. It's just not as sexy I wanted to. Just we'll wrap up with a couple of questions. I we talked about dental school in the beginning and we have a lot of younger. Apparently we have a lot of dental student listeners interestingly we had we talked to somebody. I said who teach you dentals because all all tons of our dental students listen to you guys. They never email. I'm just GonNa say that right. Now like I have no idea I didn't realize we were talking to dental students. Is it all but now we're talking to dental students. Let me preface that by saying. We're sorry sorry apologized. For what would you what would you you tell a first year dental student like getting knowing what you know now in knowing how overwhelming it was as a first year dental student like what could you offer any kind of strategy the or is it take it easy to come or you should really focus on this. What do you think I'm GonNa. Ask you just just to preface. I'm going to ask you about. Would you tell fourth year student as well but what would you tell a first year student like how should they. How should they approach it. I I think it's going to be overwhelming and you're going to think you're in over your head. The reality is everybody feels that way and that's totally normal and you're jumping into a new avenue so you just give it time right. Just keep plugging away. Give it time. Hopefully you enjoy it. You know if you're over your feel your over your head and you hate it. Maybe don't go forward but I think you're in dental school. I'm overwhelmed armed. It's normal normal because they have to start somewhere yeah. They do have to start somewhere then and listening to you just hearing the the way that you went through it. Obviously you were open. I've been to learn you had that that learning mentality where you didn't think that you had it all figured out you felt these people and I think that's would would be my recommendation for fourth year student. You're just beginning your career now. You don't know as much as you think you pick not insulting or no you have to continue you to thrive to learn and the beauty is you now have the ability to focus on areas that you find enjoyable and dental school..

"There's a knowledge base clinical the base and it's not just one case so it's it's fun right like dental porn to watch all of the pretty cases that are going through social media but I yeah I think you have to take it for what it is just photos. We're excited Jason Smith and going to be there. We we all the time. He's a close friend so we're very excited to see him on the stage. I'm excited. I have seen his work and I've seen how he does things. Fantastic never met him so I'm actually that I can't wait. I can't wait to see what your opinion. He's so understated. It's hilarious he. He's he's going to he's going to he's going to kill it sure that we get to podcasts hot guest live with him too so that's kind of cool yeah. I'm looking forward to meeting him. Yeah that's cool. That's very cool. the summit been going on for for a while now and it seems to me like can you guys find yourself trying to top top yourselves with with the summit each year. It's funny every year. I think I'd say the same thing when Franken I debrief about it and I said I think that was the best one yet yeah and then next year I think that was the best one yet so we're trying to always keep it at that highest level so as long as I can continue to say that after each summit. I think we've done our job. You invited US though so sorry do we'll see would have been fine. We got a couple of guys there so you'd said you say I go to a lot of dental meetings Jason I we're. We're thinking of things to ask you when was last time you went to a dental meeting anonymously like just as a as a participant and not not as a presenter in what is it like to go to a meeting like that for someone. WHO's you're used to presenting I'm guessing or is that material stimulating enough at this point two yeah. That's a good question. I don't know if I can readily think of a time. I just went to go. I you know what I did. I went to a study club meeting that I'm not involved in just to listen it was Mark Mark Piper and Jim McKee steady club and I realized that the joint maybe an area where I really do need to focus differently and grow more so they invited me out. If I wanted to attend it's like closed steady club but that was actually this past spring so that was yeah so I was just there to attend. I wasn't lecturing. I had just wanted to be there and listened to what everybody's talking about and obviously those two guys for some reason our team. Jay is controversial in any in in the aspect or I've seen some youtube videos with them and Mark Piper interest. That's really blows your mind. What is their involvement with Spear Vape. They deering was talking a lot about in his lecture the yeah so we we have gym now is part of our faculty okay and he teaches is in the exclusion seminar. What Frank had done for years as he taught it all right. It was just a a one man show and the challenge of a one man show is if something happens so the one man then the show is over and so what what he's done here but the business has done is brought in people to be able to supplement the information right so I came into his practice and then we came down here and we brought more people in but when we started to realize that you can't be an expert in everything you can know a lot of information that if you really want to teach at the highest level then you need the people that have the experts and so with regards to joints. We've always taught joints but given now that we have imaging that we really didn't use before we need to talk about adjoins at a different level and we were probably not the best one to do that. So having Jim McKee inclusion seminar actually allows us now to have that piece at a the at a more higher level. Maybe than it was before and so then we are supplementing that with a workshop that actually focuses more on the joints and imaging and these types of things and you've got the seclusion course and then there's an advanced yeah that's the advance course hasn't it's on the books for twenty twenty but that's going to be taught by Gerry and and Gary Wood and in Jim McKie and it'll be more focused on on joints interest anymore imaging and more imaging wind image what records you need for imaging how to read the imaging but not a tmd course right so I don't want you to think that it's just a pain patients and I'm never gonNA WANNA. Take that 'cause I don't want those patients agents anyway. It's more driven towards the restorative side patients that you're going to see in your practice for routine care. That also happened have a joint issue. We need the in the equation workshop. There's I mean they're just kind of skimming the surface on a lot of stuff and especially since there's so much hands on in this course you can tell the Gary would love to dig in a little bit on these things like dental school right back. I gotTA gotTa go over the basics first and then we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA tease some of the advanced concepts but then to get to those you need to actually get get to another course as any of that change the way you practice in the past couple of years is a genus yeah absolutely and again spend enough time with with breath Jim and we we invited Mark Piper to come out and do a to take up in Seattle just because I wanted more information on joints and so I'm talking to Jim him and I said so when Winds Piper lecturing I'm I'll go find him. Somewhere and I'll I'll listen. He goes all you're too busy. He goes how about this. Why don't you find a time that works for you and we'll do a luxury seattle. Mike that's even better so we you know gathered a group of people that also had interest and he came to Seattle and did two days for us so yeah. It's influence the practice a lot because I never used damage and it's not again not I think most dentists when they start thinking about joint issues they think about pain patients in the reality is yes. There are some patients who have pain but there's a lot of patients who just have bite issues right there. Clues Asian isn't working in. They're having problems in its joint 'cause so looking at those types of patients one thing. I've found I very small practice. I have a practice in downtown. Richmond and it's a lot of younger patients and everybody told me I was crazy to come down because wasn't any dentistry there and the one overwhelming main thing that I'm seeing on all those younger patients as joint an airway issues across the board. It's just it's crazy. It's just it's so noticeable that it just you can't escape it once you know what to look for and the questions that ask everybody's got problems that thing we we've had in multiple. Just this this week that we've talked about. There's like there's always this sort of red pill aspect where basically when she sort of start to know this stuff you see it everywhere airways the same way like you can't you can't unsee it but what's overwhelming for someone like me is like. I I don't know quite how necessarily adapted into my practice model that that sort of an and I mean that's probably why we need to keep coming to classes and stuff 'cause but the other thing is finding out people who are doing it doing it right or doing it well. I don't think I can be jeff rouse but I think I could if I could find a way to like for Airway patients that I don't necessarily want to treat I at least want to be able to send them somewhere where they tree yep. We're still honestly we're still working on that. That's I mean we're talking about that and we talked to Rebecca and everyone is still kind of. They've got this model team that there were it'd be nice to be able to try and put something like that together right then that's unique to your area and the knowledge of the people and the clinicians around you willingness of other clinicians outside of dentistry to work together with Yep. That's a that's a crazy having hard to do yeah yeah. It's like you gotTa have a certain level of open-mindedness on ever on everyone's part so you kind of have to. I don't know that's that's that's the struggle. Okay Okay so you mentioned a couple times that the way that your schedule is between you know actually practicing and teaching here in we're teasing you never know. Have you ever start the wrong lecture because you're just going and going. I WANNA know how in the world the one plug how in the world because if you don't unplug on some level at some time time you kind of lose your mind so what's Greg's and you're gonNA Pricey. I don't really unplug but I figure you. You have to on some level. No I think you have to so what's what's it's your. What's your how you do it. I don't do it well. Let's just start with either. The people talk about life balance and and they said well. How do you do it like I wanNA model all my life after you and I'm like no don't do what you see is not the reality right? I have to put on this persona now. It's there are certain things that it. It just kind of allow me to check out exercise would be one of them. glass of wine would be an another one of them but I I enjoy anything outdoors any any type of activities outdoors so golf would be high on my list but biking and hiking and running in those types of things that would be my in like. Is that something that an early morning thing for you because the story is. You don't have a lot of days where you're not doing something. It's it's an early morning day here because it's so hot yet but at home it's it's an UH after after work. What do you have a set set hours at work that you're you know hard out or not. Necessarily know I- frosted I've tried. I tried that game. I'm more apt now to just leave. I used to stay way too late. I'm more up now to reach reach a certain point okay. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. I'm leaving now and I'll come in early. The next morning I get a lot stuff done before. Patients actually come in so yeah. I've kind of balanced out a little bit better I I think. Are you seeing patients here. Are you just moving. You know just just in Seattle yeah so this. I mean we've been off to. I've been off down here for a while. I my my last classes. Were in first part of June. So I had most June all of July off so I would just home practicing so as kind of like yeah I was. I was kind of looking forward to coming back not just just as a change in pacing yet change the routine backup yeah. That's I I get it. I'm like so if you I mean you have a family too so you. You share those kinds of activities with family. What you do a lot of outdoor stuff. Do you do with your family. Yes yes so my wife's a dentist so she's just now coming into the practice so she had a practice down in a different part microscope center that right so we just did buy two new microscopic. I got yes we did and you have you have you practice with Mexico for yeah. We've always had scopes in the practice but the scopes that were in there were put in when frank open the practice which was in ninety five so one of them recently just kind of de Bolton from the Celia literally fell out of the ceiling and so given given in the age of it..

A special episode brought various from from spiritual with me as always my stalwart companion Dr Jason lipscomb hell everybody's brushing little bite registration material out of his beard Nice. What is it about by registration that gets never beard-cutting. Oh so we're taking the collusion course and it's going really well and someone who knows a little bit about inclusion with us also Dr Greg Ginza Greg. How are you doing. I'm doing I'm doing great. Thank you for having me so I literally just ran into Steve in the bathroom not as awkward as it sound actually but he was asking so how's it going. I'm like you know this is a lot of the stuff on the inclusion course was taught in dental school like they tempted to teach it to us in dental school like the a lot of the concepts sir very similar. The problem was as dental students. We didn't have any experience to speak of and we didn't have any context to ask the right questions. Russians about this stuff so you just kind of went through the motions with the collusion I felt like because we hadn't really had a lot of clinical experience when we were getting taught and I told him I said this is kind of like this is like dental school for dentists like this after you've you've worked on some patients you kind of know the questions to ask and I honestly spear education might be that actually. What do you say that. Does that ring a bell with you. I totally does I mean any type of education. You're only able to accept so much information because you only have so much background information and and so we oftentimes hear people that take a class and then they come back and they hear it again they go now. It makes sense because as I got back back to the office I started to see things differently and I keep kind of grasp what you guys were talking about but now actually make sense so I think you have to have the knowledge and then you have to have the experience to back it up for sure. what surprises have you seen from different. I mean obviously every dental school is not the same what surprises have you seen and people's knowledge level of of inclusion. That sounds like a loaded question. No people that are in here right right now. Now I can only speak to my dental school experience and University of Washington's a great school and I felt like I got a good education coming out of there but but a collision piece was a blur I mean collusion was dots on teeth. That's kind of what it came down to coming from you. That's pretty gratifying find here because we did. We did things we actually seated. Kondile release we tried and we made centric relation bite records but we had no idea what we were doing and it was just just it was an exercise. I think that's the challenge with dental school. It's if they have you do something as an exercise but you have no clinical knowledge college of how you would ever use it and Central Asian was always one of these where you know to get thirty minutes to make a bite record because we had to make custom bite records with allieu axe ax and ash metal firm two types of pink base play wax and you'd sticky wax together so literally you'd have to be in the lab making a bite record to get ready to take eight byte record you'd get in the clinic and I remember mounting the cases and all your classmates are standing around on. Did you do it. Did you get it and I'm like I. I don't even know what we're doing so it's it's not a big stretch to let me get out. A collusion has no meaning except doubts on teeth those the best thing when when we do a denture you're dependent on what depending on what process start you had in and they would check your mounting and mounting was never right but then and the guy helped me fix it and then the next week at the twenty seventh try and the next guy go your mounting like yeah when it was it was A. I didn't know anything about what I really was trying to get for CR. I just I was just trying to do with that. Instructor one get done so I could get them with point and I think take a box. Our our lecture are collusion. Lecture was like second year so we literally had no clinical experience whatsoever and so I'm certain that when we were cooler breeding something on an articulated later I was thinking about the micro biology exam. I had the next day and that's really so it really. There's a lot of the tons of clinical concepts can't really be a first first year fixed prosthetics where your prep and crunchy. I mean literally. You're just doing what they tell you to do. Not Knowing anything about it and you know pieces yeah in. That's that's a in a way it's a failure of education in a way it's inevitable because you just don't know enough to know the questions challenge of Education Yeah exactly and it's going to be it difficult to be able to get the information because you're building everybody with different knowledge levels and no experience in to the same person or trying to so when you get out and practice then you actually start to see the importance of exclusion when you start restoring things and they break and you go. Oh maybe the seclusion. There was something we should maybe re address that well okay so and I ask Darren this yesterday. To what have you found with regard to a teaching all kinds of different people in they have all kinds of different backgrounds. They have all kinds of like for instance. You know one school may be teaching a completely different way than another or one person out for thirty years. One person graduated last week. You know how how do you how do you teach so that you're kind of reaching everyone because that's gotta be a huge challenge and it's the the building blocks of what we do here. We don't jump in and start talking about big rehabs worn dentition patients we build the concepts and the concepts can be applied to every patient in your practice you single tooth breath couple of post your ears so we build the knowledge level up to be able to do comprehensive full mouth reconstructions but that's you know there's a lot aww Dennis. I don't want to do that and that's fine we you we can help you get there but the concepts are still the same the challenges windy you apply the concepts uh-huh so you know when we we just got done doing advanced workshop and it's a workshop that encompasses everything that they have been taught before. Ah Everything's fair game and when I'm showing them in trying to walk thin through different scenarios the questions that come up are still relatively basic Lisa questions they know what to do. They just don't know when to do it. When should I do this. Versus this so it's it's the knowledge of you gotta get out and practice so so you can actually see how this plays itself out Do you see people make that that breakthrough. Obviously it's a mental thing. It's a mental hurdle that you've you finally have to jump over. What's seems to be the there's one like pinnacle that people reach and then it's the Aha moment. I think everybody gets. There are at different times because we understand that when people come to take classes here everybody has a different goal. Here's my goal when I'm done I WANNA do I wanNA WANNA do more teeth instead a single tooth. I WANNA do an arch but I don't want to do a full rehab so we can help you get wherever that is and I think everybody gets there at a different time and and there's just it's not one thing that that is the that. Aha moment and how did you all decide. Obviously there's there's some type of pathway that you're going through. We start start out with facial generated complaining last time when inclusion this time how do you how do you decide as somebody that trains what comes first how how that fits into into the realm of that's that's a good question so I kinda liked to describe what we do here as a Grad process residency. That's essentially what it is the slow way well. It's the slow way but think about the alternative. abandon your life for three years. you know in our program which was three ears. They called it the great divorce her yeah so if you went into the program married chances of us being married at the end were pretty small as you're in the program until you know seven in the morning till one in the morning like you're there all day every day so we can allow you hear that same knowledge base so we kind of you've have used not only experienced but what is taught at a graduate level to be able to build a curriculum but do it in a in an incremental type type of setting so you can power through it or you can you can work your way through and like get legged friends from England who come in they'll stay for a week and a half and take like three recourse and just because of the travel and they're going to be their brain has to be melted by the end of that. It's yeah and it's it's a challenge. I think it would be a challenge for me to you. Get the information that way and it's kind of started this conversation with you. Get a piece of information and some of them make sense some of it. Maybe doesn't so you go back and you practice yes and all of a sudden you start to see the reality of what the things you just heard so the next time you come back you build upon that knowledge base. If you get all of it like force fed to you yeah it's harder for me to be able to put those pieces together. 'cause in context is difficult if you don't have the ability to actually see it in in in real time out the practice yeah it can be done my little mind. Just it'd be tough for me. Yeah your little mind so obviously you did grab process right after dental school you didn't did you work after or did you go straight into it. I went straight into it and I wanted to go straight into it. in Frank Frank you got to work with Franken dental school and that's kind of one of the things that guy to do there. If I remember correctly then in graduate school he would lecture to us. Yes okay so tons of training in restorative dentistry all facets of dentistry and then you become a teacher telling me about that how did did you learn the teaching aspect of it because you're pretty talented at. It and it's not something that I'm thinking. Did you have any formal teaching training or just sort of trial by fire so as a graduate student one of the courses that we had to do every student has to do it as you have to learn how to put a lecture together so you get to pick your own topic but you you have a class where they teach you kind of what to do how to think about it how to to put it together and then you get graded by your presentation and so you give it to the Grad students and you give it to the parallel process. Ortho so everybody gets some input on how well you did and so that was the first entry level well for me into teaching well it went well actually and I liked it was fun. I enjoyed it so there others that that had more of a struggle with it I I think so. I think the big challenge for people is is organizing data so other people can understand it but then also you just stand in front of a group of people and talking talking can be nerve wracking yeah so what what Grad students do then is. You take your lecture if you if you enjoyed it and you go out and you hit the study club circuit right the local study clubs in your city and you don't get paid but you get dinner which is a Grad student. It's pretty good. It's pretty good deal right. Maybe a beer and dinner and it's like all right. This is great so I put together a couple lectures because I enjoyed it. It was fun for me but I I so I had no other training aside from that and even though I come from a family of teachers you know aunts uncles parents maybe was just in my blood.

"I'm Jay Phillips Jason. Lipscomb feel like it's been years since we've spoken has that just reminded me of a video that I just saw of selene eating a hot pocket. Yes I'll okay so we're putting putting on a show. That's making the show for sure. Maybe that's my go hack yourself. I don't know slowly let me see if I can find it. this is this is a gripping a guest that's right we were literally like twenty seconds into already looking for youtube youtube videos of Celine Dion eating a hot pocket and that my friends is why you should listen to the dental hacks podcast as people wonder why they don't give continue education for this podcast. I believe we've pretty much explained exactly why they don't just just pray that Yup. Okay it's coming at Ya. Oh Wow he really did share with me. I'll check that in his car you doing Jason. I'm good how are you. I'm good. I'm good I'm looking forward to. I'm looking forward to several things in Scottsdale Arizona in the next ear so I just thought I put that out there. One of going on there there are one of them is happening in like a week or week and a half from when this goes out you you and I are were invited to podcast at the Spear Summit so I'm very excited about what I know. It's it'll be cool. Though it's going to be great we're going to interview a bout a million people. I think I feel like it's kind of like yeah. Maybe I feel like we're sort of the post game show after the I'm kind of hoping that they set us up right outs as the doors opened and the adoring fans you can hear them going is the as the people that we're GONNA interview. Come out there speaking in the big room with you know where hundreds of people have just listen to them talk doc so they should. They should be all hyped up it. Maybe it will sound like professional wrestlers. ooh kind of what kind of hoping I'd like to. I'd like to hear maybe Darren Easter disowned just like randy macho man savage or something like that I mean there's a coming off the top rope. Oh off the turnbuckle bobby the brain heenan speaking it's beer. I think that's their special guest while that's a deep cut. I suspect you know who that is. I'll bet you most of our listeners. Don't they're all dead. You know who does know who that is. Dr Franklin late knows who that is. I guarantee you know it is so we've gone through Celine Dion. We've gone through professional wrestling. This is the highest rated dental podcasts in the world. I'm say they know it's because says says you says he says me one person says that in that it'd be me so looking forward to interviewing people and end like being able to be part of the the spear summit very tiny again in Scottsdale. That's like two times in Scottsdale in September. That's crazy well. He was August when we were there. So it's you know but within a month it's awesome. I think I might just move there. I'm not sure my family's on board with that but I think I could move there. I'm pretty sure I get and one hundred and fifteen degrees really didn't bother me. That much wasn't very much growing it. Yeah I have only he knows it can't be it was so hot there and it was still lovely. I thought it was great. We took a few weeks back. We took the workshop the occasion workshop I really enjoyed the heck out of that might be the Best C. Class I've ever taken in. You know it's really funny. I feel like there was a switch flipped in my brain because all of a sudden like actually looking looking a lot harder even just in regular hygiene exams and stuff I'm kind of taking a bigger picture. Look at at how patients bite might be affecting whether we're talking about where or what have you. It's Kinda freaking me out a little bit because the twenties things where it's easy enough to ignore it especially if when you're kind of in that one too okay is is that who were messed up. We're GONNA we're fix this. I the bigger picture collusion look is in even if it isn't like your you know your opening. Everyone's bite that walks in the Doran like that. I feel like I that was a really good course for me it it's a little alarming because it's probably some things. I need to start looking at a little harder and maybe changing aging but I really I really enjoyed it. I've taken plenty of inclusion courses but none of them have actually really affected me like this one did. What did you find that to be the case or not really yeah yeah. I think you need to start looking at the man in the Mirror Allen. It's what I've always a night. Yeah I make a change I I said in the group the other day I went to the course in damage. I'M GONNA try to make some of this stuff happen and had a guy come in normally I probably wouldn't have said anything to and yet a lot of wear on the lower in his horses Batman theory. Were down and you know I said hey didn't really get into defined detail with him but I said Hey if you wanna fix at their some things we can do to fix that and he was actually very appreciative because he had asked the dentist several years ago about fixing it and the dentist sodium no he couldn't because of AB NC and I said well the others there are ways to fix it and he was very very excited about the chance to be able to to do something. Even if it turns out to be something simple you know now you gotta you. GotTa figure out how you can fix it. That's the problem Oh No. No no I do work didn't work up of him but I'm I'm guessing probably be some orthodontics kind of suffering if he's game for that that ATM Machine Okay Interesting. That's the other thing you learn spare. All the sudden orthodontics is more than just like pretty teeth pretty straight teeth orthodontics in adults in particular. There's like so many of the tree plans that they show in their courses involve orthodontics so if you if you don't do Ortho or you don't have a good relationship with an orthodontist man. That's that's something you'll walk out of spear going. I gotTA figure that one out because that's yeah that's a lot of stuff there. It's cool. It's really feel like I'm a better dentist. Now I know maybe that's not saying very much but uh-huh after taking this course I feel like I really am looking at a bigger picture. An Ortho stuff helped me look at that too like when I took that Ortho got back in two thousand five is just big picture stuff because what happens is dentists. I think we focus in on a Lotta Times insurance and patient pressures and stuff like that. Don't they kind of make us step. Look into close like sometimes it's good to step back and look at the big picture. A broken tooth is one thing but like why did it break. If there's maybe some thoughts on why broke because of where or collusion or something I don't know is really good. If you haven't taken any courses from spirit prior to go. Oh check out their their their lineup. There's there's ways you can kind of. Get into it and just try stuff out. See if it's a good fit. It's always fun to go out there. It's always fun to eat there. It always comes back to that for me. Really seems like we've talked about this one. Yeah I pretty much every time. We've been on the show together in the last last month or so. Hashtag woke yeah. I'm I'm a little worried that the that the food won't be as good at the summit as it was at actual spear so I may show up late to the summit and just go over to spear and have breakfast there. I'm just saying they're going to have a trolley. I believe they're gonNA have their going to lock the door on me. They won't they always coming out the door particularly revealing the spear food cart seriously seriously they could do that. They get totally do that. I'm excited about this summit though the summits going to have some big big names some people that people that you've heard of in the but what what Greg was telling us we actually I interviewed him. That's our interview for today but he was saying one of the cool things about the spear summit is it's not necessarily just all the people that you think of as spear speakers as you know frank and Greg and during Easter and and you know Jeff Rouse the people they are they are speaking. Some of them are speaking. Some of them aren't actually some march began the main stage but they bring in some other people and it just so happens that someone you've probably heard before on this podcast. Dr Jason Smithson is speaking at the Spear Summit this year pretty excite other Jason Jason. That's right the other. Jason of the dental hacks podcast. That's exactly right so he's blessed. You call me right. He's flying in from across the pond and he's speaking. I think several times I think we'll get a chance to talk to him too so they have a translator. Is You know like sometimes people get up at the UN and I've got the little translator I hope so so I can't understand that. GotTa Save my wife. I listened to him and every time I listen to him. Speak I feel a little bit smarter. I because the accent automatically adds I think thirty points to your Iq for you me. It's probably it's probably fifty points so there you have it from the south so it's like ninety points. Yeah Yep that's true. I agree for you for you. Definitely Ninety points. It's I it's going to be great. I can't wait. I spear doesn't do anything halfway so that's really I'm pretty excited about all this stuff. It's GonNa be good. May is going to be so speaking of not doing anything halfway. We actually spoke with Dr Greg Kinzer his well for today's interview he we locked him also in a small room with US small air conditioning overlooking the gigantic like main lecture Hallet's beer and we talked about a lot of good stuff. He's he's. He's an interesting guy. I think okay when you see these guys up on stage. It's sort of literally are on a pedestal and he's more approachable than you think he is or maybe maybe. I'm just saying that because they made him talk to US I. I don't know I'm not sure it's probably it's probably what it is. He saying no no no. I'm not actually approachable. Just made me talk to you guys so actually leave me alone on but now he's great. He's funny. we talked a lot about does out. Albie wouldn't expect us to ask them about we talked about work life balance now hard that is for him and for pretty much every dentist listening to this. I think many of them feel the same way so I think it's kind of cool to hear that from like some of your heroes they they struggle with the same kind of things did you did you find. Greg to be approachable or did you find him to be. HOTI and UPPITY. That's what I WANNA know Jason. That's very approachable and you know. Sometimes we can manufacture celebrity in our minds. That kind of seems like it's and some of the people were talking to when they were at lunch like Oh my Gosh I've seen Darren Easter. I've seen Romney's videos and I don't know what to say when I must see him and it's you know you realize realized they're just real people doing their job and work in do so it's it's kind of strange to put these people up on a pedestal and then get to talk to him a little so so true. It's so true.

Young social entrepreneur in India turns wedding waste into meals for the needy
"I'm an academy with you and us on a mission to feed hungry. Citizens young social entrepreneur in India, stack Ling, the food waste challenge there by rescuing food leftover from weddings parties in supermarkets, Padmanabahn Gopalan takes advantage of geolocation technology by allowing restaurants in individuals to log into his no waste food app where they can find the nearest community that can take their food instead of throwing it in the bin according to you, an estimates saving twenty five percent of the food currently wasted globally. Each year would be enough to feed. Eight hundred seventy million hungry people in so far, Mr. Gopalan, provided meals for more than nine hundred thousand you was in New York this week, taking part in the UN science, technology and innovation forum and spoke to you uses session gold. Why initiative, no food waste is an initiative that collects all this hopeless Ford from weddings, restaurants, supermarkets, and hall, sort of he even said this happening across the cities where there is a large. Twenty of untouched good quality surplus for being thrown into bins. So we have dollar technology and the application that helps to donate that to the nearest community need. So we have geo tagged all the hunger sports in the city like the people in need lake slums government hospital shelter homes, orphanages roadside homeless people temporary shelters all the stuff they are geo tagged and map. So if a if a person or restaurant or an industry logs into mobile application, they'll be able to see the nearest community, which they can share that, for instance, throwing it into the bins. We also operate a fleet of vehicles and volunteers, which helps us to bridge this gap of collecting and distributing the food. So it started in a place called mature in Tamil. Nado, nowadays working in fifteen cities, across south, India. Have you invested any foods or resources in making sure that people are aware of your initiative, so that they are able to reach out to you? That is a very good amount of awareness being picking up among the people. So. So people used to like they don't have any access to those datas of where they can go and share the food, even if they live in the city, they don't know where are people in need. So everybody speak about hunger, but they literally don't know where where this pockets are. So, that's when we wanted to identify them, and Geotech them. So there anybody like nowadays. Everybody's using technology on the other side like the people who while Guinness evens and everybody they're logging, and they just find the they see the data Hillary and say, anxious that this many sports are there in the city, which we live for more than thirty s so we work with all the, the particularly the food safety and channels authority of India, and they are organizing Multistakeholder meeting with the holiday caterers food industries on regular level, where we give to them. And also, we reach out on social media to all the wedding couples so they are aware of this service being offered, so they can close this on the weddings of throwing away. Lot of our students to dental school children as well was in a specific reason you gave up for this innovative idea creative solution to the food waste problem. So it's an interesting interesting journey, so I, I was doing my uniting graduation in an almond college so I happen to learn with lot of people from different backgrounds. So mostly from tribal, rural parts and few of us from cities. So everyone had a different value of food. So as working part time as well when I was doing my undergraduate. So then I was doing a part time classes to lot of school children. That's when I found out that this generation, particularly missed the value of the food is equal to some money, it's not an economic. It is beyond that, too. I thought instead of teaching science max, we should I teach value food to kids. So then whichever class, I go, I took a weighing scale with me. I used to wait how much food the kids throw in the schools and during the next day or something. Family. They'll be reading it in the, the assembly that yesterday, all of us western this many cages afoot today. We should try to reduce that. So then Ford standard kid came to me, and ask me a question. See there are a lot of food being thrown away last week, we had a housewarming function where we ordered for one fifty people, but only some one hundred people turned up, so we're can do that, for that provoke need to start something like this. So how many Xs meals have you been able to do need so far, the number of people who have been able to help, tow it as our around eight nine thousand meals that you have delivered through directly by us, and the, the eight hundred thousand but it's, it's more than eight hundred thousand meals that we have directly collected and delivered through frito vehicles, so we have on one hundred volunteers who collect meals, and deliver hand. There are also a lot of individual donations happening. Now, you are here in New York. Tell us a little bit about your experience participating. In the science technology innovation forum coming back to the United Nations actionable Ottoman goals. I strongly believe that technology and scale ability, will be the only solution to kill some local solutions. So this forum is a great platform for local restaurant loyal workers. Lakers for me. This is the first time in United Nations and frustration Moore. So every time I read about United Nations when Leanne my books, so here we are able to make the people from different cultures different countries coming together for a common cause. And we feel the energy of lake mindedness, among all the stakeholders here. So when I, I was given a chance here to person may Navision, so there are a lot of people who were able to connect to the problem of food waste and who are already seeking solutions for it. So we are all connected in this platform now. So it is definitely making this local solution to become global one. This platform is one that will make that you talked about skill ability. What are your plans for the future? So right now, the, the Soviet of hunger, mapping, we are done in fourteen cities, where people are using it to shut the food. So we are working on in to metro big cities, rest of all titrate cities. So we according to the data, what we have there is more amount of wood being thrown away stood only in Tyrone cities then tied into so we were concentrating more on Thailand cities in the coming years. So we'll be killing a initiatives to much more Tyron cities like the Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore Hyderabad and other places, and also create a more sustainable model current way of working now, we are shifting it into more sustainable model so that it will really become replicable and Francis solution for everyone to
Keeping Money Secrets From Each Other: Financial Infidelity On The Rise
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from CFA society. Washington DC does your wealth manager measure up a CFA charter holder. Does they have the investment expertise to unlock opportunities? Other advisers might not see learn more at the right question dot org high. So there's marital infidelity what about financial infidelity? This is when people hide their accounts their debts or their spending habits from their spouses or partners. Studies estimate up to forty percent of American adults admit to some form of this and therapists and financial advisers say it can really undermine relationships because of all the lies NPR's. Yuki Noguchi reports on one couple's journey from deception to disclosure and Blaine Ed fifteen years ago at a party, he hosted in Houston at twenty three combs already had his financial act together. He owned a house all ready, and he had a job any managed his budget lane was three years older and saddled with dental school. That she found his financial security super sexy. Gosh, this I've hit the jackpot. This is amazing. They married and settled in Charlotte, North Carolina. They had some different views about money. We'll never really had the idea that people would manage keep their money in separate accounts or hidden from each other. Joining counts was the way that my parents manage the household finances that was real skittish about that. I guess because my parents went through a a not very pretty divorced, but these differences they negotiated. Eventually they got around to saying, okay, let's do this. So like all of our counts were mutual and shared that sharing. Extended to an combs is dental practice. Ed comb stayed home with their boys while his wife supported them later, he returned to school to become a therapist, but his counseling practice was slow to take off. I had a period of struggle how to deal with my own insecurities, and what it meant for me to be provider or not being a provider, and I borrowed more money and wasn't talking to my wife about it. Ironically, his practice focused on financial therapy counselling for couples fighting about money. Meanwhile, combs himself secretly borrowed thousands of dollars on a credit card over the following year that debt metastasized to over twenty thousand dollars he told himself he'd repay it as he won more clients, a just need more time. But every month, the debts grew his wife, she didn't notice, but I'll be honest. I was probably more oblivious than I'd like to admit that. I was guilt. Consumed ad combs. He thought about it hourly even talking about this with you now like I have my own sense of shame. That's coming over me. 'cause man I really do that he agreed to tell his story because he thinks it might help others in the same boat. The few academic studies on the subject say between a quarter to about forty percent of American adults deceive their partners financially. Ted Rosman is an industry analyst for credit cards dot com. It does seem that financial infidelity. Is on the rise. His firms recent survey found millennials twice as likely to hide money or accounts from partners than other generations and digital life makes doing so easier. You can sign up for the account. You can get the statements. You can do your spending all without anything showing up in the mail. Ed combs kept his secret under wraps for a year. The debt grew even to him. It made no sense his job after all involved helping couples navigate financial conflict his wife called him, Mr. financially responsible. It is ironic. He says the strain isolated and depressed him for the most part people thought successful, his smart. He's capable internally. I just nothing else field further from the truth. Ultimately, the truth did come out one night after their three sons went to bed. He told her and combs recalls. The initial shock span of a couple of minutes. Really what what just got swept out from underneath me. Then she got angry everything. Me wanted to just yell and like punch pillow. And I think when he's been so we got share everything we got to do this for your business, and my business together all the time when that happened. The trust part was the hardest thing to get back getting it back required couples counseling. Apologies transparency time even forgiveness. She admits she resented repaying his debts like I don't wanna do that. I feel like you should bail yourself out for what you because it's been over two years since he came clean. Ed comb says he's learned to empathize with those like himself who break their own moral code and people like his wife who were hard to forgive and are people generally speaking able to move through that. You heard me take a deep breath because it's easy to talk about on the phone interview. And it's harder work to do week in week out to those still hiding in the shadows. Both he and his wife say come forward. The sooner the better, you can Gucci NPR news.

No tunnel. He does the only problem with these books is that I'll I will like not listen to any podcast just binged, listen this thing, so it's over too quickly trying to make them trying to stretch it out. But it's really another one cool thing about this was John Sanford lived just down the road from the university of Minnesota dental school in his wife at the time. Unfortunately, she she died of cancer in two thousand seven, but his wife was an ended honest, and she actually taught at the dental school in. She was really nice. She was she was great teacher really like one of those crazy smart people. And she she was not you wouldn't. No, she didn't like fawned over. She was super nice. And I literally had no idea that that they were married until later like I just started reading some of his books. I did. I miss my chance to like hang out with John Sanford, but a great book God, he's he's my favorite author. I swear to God he really is like I just I just mow through his book. So if you get a chance neon pray you're gonna like it. I'll put it in the show notes. So Jason we cry. Never learn to read. Yeah. I mean, if for the literate once otherwise do like, I do which is audible, of course, as if I use my eyes to revamp be silly. Fantasize? I I'm swear I the challenge for me is to actually read a book like with my eyes. It's it's tough to tough ask just our fees will you know, and stories with the commute. It's my excuse. I don't read with my eyes because I gotta drive so people could get hurt that way. All right. Jason we crush this one. I appreciate you opening the book in showing us into your life.

"dental school" Discussed on The Dental Hacks Podcast
"Never crossed my mind. I wouldn't know now. Yeah. So if we got into dental school, we had the start carving Tif pretty much right away. I was like what? I've you know, I was in such deep trouble there, man. I was in such deep trouble. That was that was so far like I didn't have any hand skills or whatever. And it just. Yeah. That was scary. Number all the world Adamy stuff that it was just like it was like it was like they demanded you speak. You know, a brand new language in full sentences the first day stead. I've no idea what I was doing what I've worked. I worked pretty much fulltime all through undergrad. I and I I lived lived locally and then and commuted into schools. I mean when when other people were off and a fraternity or doing stuff like that. And that for years, I I was not doing that. And then when I got the dental school, and all of a sudden, you have this close set of people, and you know, they're having parties stuff like that. Then that was my that was my time depart party undergrad undergrad wasn't really you're too busy working to do that stuff underground was like a job. So this was like, hey, this that that really nailed to the wall pretty good too. So interesting. Okay. So that's one of the questions going to ask you. What was what was under grad like for you went? You went to. Where'd you? Go to undergrad they see which is also where you went to dental school. Right. Okay. So so that's within given so in where did you live in undergrad? And under grad, I live a couple of different apartments actually live with my parents for year. But yeah. With other roommates, he stuff you I am. I lived in in dental school. I lived in the CEO house for three years in then I moved to an apartment that. I thought was the greatest thing ever was a dump, but it was the gracing of ridden. They called the whole complex Sioe, Megan retirement home. It was a bunch of us that lived in the CEO house in in just awful like like, the Siamese house was was great for a lot of reasons. But it was not a nice place. It was it was pretty bad. It was pretty beat up and the room for tiny. But the rent you can beat the rent man when I was treasurer for a couple years. I got to live in basically downtown Minneapolis for hundred fifty bucks a month. And I didn't think about it as as like, hey, I'm really saving myself money at the time. It's just what I did. And I I when I went to tour like like, my dad, and I my seniors great. We did this. We did the dental school midwest dental school tour, I I looked at we flew from where do we do we flew from I flew from Ohio to to Nebraska than we drove to Iowa or vice? Versa. We saw university of Iowa and university to Nebraska on this trip. And it was you know, as cold and snowy and in both of them were. I mean, both were great. They were really my remember back in the day when you were potential dental student. They they they rolled out the red carpet for you, both schools looked awesome. I in in. I went to nursing Michigan. And I've always had a chip on my shoulder about the university of Michigan. So Michigan wasn't really my on my list in what's weird is like it would honestly wasn't gonna at much less expensive to go to Michigan even though as Michigan resident so we did this tour in I ended up at Minnesota one of these trips in in. They were really they were super nice. I mean, the recruiters ice still to this day and Facebook friends with the people that recruited me and stuff. They're just they they do their administration. I gotta say there. There's some pretty kind and gentle people I can't say the same for the rest of the school necessarily, but but at least for that. And so like they were talking about we're what people did to were for living. So my dad naive. Refinish the two or my dad's. I was asylum mega at the university of TRITON sixties, which go check out the sound Megan how so I knock on the door. In it just happens guy by the name of rob Kozlowski. So there'd be Dr rogue Kozlowski Niner. I haven't heard from since he graduated from dental school but answered the door ends like, yeah. Come out in check it out. And this was I hadn't even like finished my application. He was like super friendly show me the house in in my mind. I'm like, okay. Maybe the house isn't so nice. I didn't think that much but at the time, but I'm like if if like a second year is this friendly to just a person knocking on the door like how bad could it be an and I'm not gonna lie to you this. I oh, folks were great. We had a good time. There wasn't a nice place. But it was it was honestly, I it was it. They're great people are some of the best people. They helped me make it through. I was a mess of them. I'd have been in trouble. So this is house was there were some good stuff about it. There's some bad stuff about it. Just because it was sort of a dumb, but his good stuff too. So that's where I ended up living for three years. My dental school ker in I lived in the dorms for three years in undergrad. And then I I was in a horrible apartment my senior year. So I there's there's a trend about the apartments. Choose apparently, they're all horrible. Give back. Do it all ever? That's right. We do it in style. Now, you go to the university of Minnesota in all of the the divey restaurants in like apartment buildings are all gone, and they're all high-rise beautiful condos. I don't think you're staying in downtown Seattle for hundred fifty bucks any more. Sure of that. So you were you in dental school? You were you were an apartment, and then you live with your folks. Yeah. I can't remember what year live with my my parents pretty much ran out of money. I don't have. I was just eating like corn chips as a meal. Yeah. Couple of weeks. I was like. Never never had money. Somebody had had a stipend that a little bit. But just went able to work in. Yeah. You know, keep up with everything got if I had to work on a never would have been made it through. I work my senior year. And that was after we the class load course by the end by by your senior year the class load. Wasn't that wasn't that big? So I worked in a coffee shop for for probably six months that was fun job. Good job it paid. It didn't pay very well. You know, in retrospect, it was, you know, when I spent everything I made there's not like I was paying my tuition within or anything like that. But I had a little extra time in there were some really cool people there that I worked with that was cool. But yeah, there no way that you were doing that on a regular basis in in dental school. There's no chance you're going to be a little work, you know, throughout school. I was I mean, I'd love to tell you. It's because I was studying all the time. But I mean, it was a grind memory. You talked to undergrad who who were complaining because they had fifteen credit hours per week or whatever. And like dental school was a minimum of twenty eight or something like that. It was ridiculous. We would sit and watch the Mets dance go home because they would they would leave round like twelve or two in the afternoon. And we kinda see him coming down the medical school looking out the window Edward up there. Whacks all our crap. That's what it was for the first year. We had the same curriculum as the medical students except over dental snow. We had we had the cell biology. We had the, you know, biochemistry in gross, anatomy, and histology. We had all that stuff. We also learn about teeth, and I think is so funny. My my first quarter freshman year dental school, they had something like dental practice delivery or something like that. And it was it was basically like solo practice group practice, you know, public health in linkages new nothing. You didn't know anything about anything? It was almost like, well, we gotta get this in somewhere. Let's put it in first quarter freshman year, the context wasn't there at all. I remember that vividly there quite a few classes like that you could just sort of looking back. Well. Obviously had to get this in it must have been requirement. So they found they found spot for wherever they could. Yeah. It's yeah. That's that's not the time to do the business education. Medical students medical students had they had histology they'd gross anatomy in the head cell biology. And that's all they had for like the first two quarters. And it was the goal was to kind of get the basic science requirements out of the way in which is I think it's a great idea. They can really focus on the basics. That's fantastic. They did that the dental students just added their dental stuff on fits. I remember. I think they did that to to see what kind of stuff we are made of those
