"Presentation of rips. Rescue with dr doug. Lyle followed by a mindset mass discussion with our coaches john fitzgerald and amy mackey. Hi i'm ripped vessels. I want to welcome you guys to our second rips rescue virtual events. I hope you're doing really really well. you know. i know for a lot of us. This last year has been very tough. And i hope that you're coming out to the pandemic as as best as possible As we move from spring to summer. I know here in austin texas where i am right now. We've had a beautiful spring. We just have gotten a bunch of rain. things are in bloom. everything is is green. We've got flowers. You know popping up everywhere. It hasn't been to oppressively hot yet. So we're looking forward to The summer months that are that are approaching here. Many of you joined us for our first rescue event that we had about two months ago and that was on heart disease The number one killer of americans for any of you that attended you got to see my father dr calabasas in junior. You got to see my mother and kreil s allston and also a new kid on the block an up and comer dr. Brian asheville a cardiologist. Out of asheville north carolina. Who is really transitioned his practice to lifestyle medicine the takeaway from that first rich rescue was that you know we really really can do everything in our power to not only prevent but also make ourselves bulletproof to heart disease just by making some simple changes as far as the foods that are at the end of our fork and knife. This second event that we're having tonight it's all about weight loss right and a lot of americans think that this is a difficult thing but that's just because they've got the wrong information when they're not doing it correctly it's something that is really like bearing this country right now as you look at the latest numbers. I think that i saw from the cdc host of forty three percent of america's now considered obese forty three percent in over the next decade. It's it'll be upwards of fifty percent and we know that obesity leads to all kinds of things like insulin insulin..

"Smart. Interestingly i see. I think that the thing is that okay. A lot of a lot of the the high fliers that are talking a lot about this are doing stuff in their office where they've got the printer in the opposite got the so is like i think much of it is so they can kind of keep it. They can keep costs down and they can. They can kind of keep control odor in in the dentist hands. Yes takes printers are just not fast enough to make that a one appointment deal or anything. But but i you you i. I see a lot of people looking at it as they. They can almost kind of cut. The you know the lab out of it if they're sort of doing basically no one really liked setting teeth in wax or i'm sorry. The process clearly like setting teeth in west. But but i mean like regular restorative. Dentists are like. I think a lot of them feel like okay if we can do it. Digitally do do this stuff digital and we don't have to do the traditional stuff which frankly a lot of the younger folks never even did in the first place so i think there might be something to that. There's a little i mean. That totally makes sense. And i think that's where you see the cost savings but but there's a lot of behind the scenes right. Calibrate the printer. You gotta make sure you know the fda guidelines are you gotta make sure the printers printing what you say it's gonna print try to calibrate you gotta work and make sure you get the material and make sure they're up to date. I mean there's a lot of behind the scenes work that goes with it. It's not just push a button. Denture comes out. You save money. But i think it might be sold like that. Exactly right. yeah stories. It's still seems like an enthusiast game to me like the so when people are taking courses in all these things the guys who really liked to do it in giving the courses great. But it's like if you're not the. It's almost like like the sarah if you don't wanna do elaborate price eric's not the right thing for you so it is. I still think it is cool. There's a lot of application. I'm not sure that it's the panacea of in the same way. It's not the single file to fix endo for you either. But i like the idea of the you can do a trial where they actually can tried in and uses little bit without there being big cost to frankly you can tweak that a little bit before you go into a a higher expense procedure that is that is pretty cool. There's i think that might be one of the the easier. Easier applications that i can see. I don't know. Have you been a monolithic temporary that you can just whip up real quick. Yeah yeah have you. Have you done any. I mean i know you you print on much lazier than i used to. I mean we run with a crowd of a lot of people that are print a lot of stuff. And i still. That's really cool for you. I haven't been drawn to it too much. So i'm feeling pretty glad about that but i the same demons that haunt with with lab. May dentures are still going to be the same demon. We're still going to be an analog component to. There's something where we got to figure out how it fits for this patient. We had a customized for each patient. Yeah so. I think that's a lot of us. Look at the instagram again. And go for the gusto and forget the forget the basics. Dentists are kind of easily sucked in by that stuff though too. Like we're always looking for the angle i think which is not. This isn't wrong with that. But i think the one thing but the reality is is the problem is is the angle reality i. I mean as a prostitute. You probably see a lot of it. I don't i don't know maybe not a big instagram guy. Which makes them frankly better person. But but i we talk about that a lot where instagram dentistry is great but the fundamentals are always going to be the fundamental. Whether it's it's tough and i think sometimes What dell students learn now are sort of skipped some of the fundamentals. I'm preaching acquirer for you. But but if he had to pick one fundamental that frank talks about. That really comes through this entire curriculum. From spear it's the wax rim right at the wax that's airway stationary. Planning teeth are in the wrong place. it's dentures obviously. Yeah everything is based on that and whether you're doing digital dentures you need a wax room right and that's really setting the tone for everything i mean that is the fundamental that we have to learn and we have to be comfortable with so that we can move forward with honestly And that's that's one of the things. I struggle with when you get the wax room back in. What do i do with us to make us in an effective tool. It's obviously great point. It's obviously a fit calibration but it's It's also communication piece with the lab. How do you. How do you use that wax rx effectively to get your point across right right so i mean to me. It has to do with the presidential patient. I have to have a base. That fits well so i could process a base. I actually use copy last. Splint bio krill mini star to make my base. And then i make the wax over the top. I can test the thickness of my border with acrylic fight. Went to fill it with wax but i've got retention stability similar to adventure so now my wax rim means something right so if they're gonna make lip movements you know i can record them on my wax ram. I'm looking for insight alleged position. I'm looking for for filling out the buckle corridor things like that so retention stability to me is really important with the wax rim. I like that. Because i i used to have my lab do a process base and it's it's it's expensive and they also looked at me like i was nuts. They were literally forget to do it. Because i must have been the only person asking for aid but the reality is i. Don't i mean if you're a lot of a lot of the bases with just know a triad thing. You have no idea if you know when your mind never fit. Yeah when you're when you're making these the patient don't worry about the fact that this is falling out in in the final denture won't maybe will. Actually maybe it was i. Do i like that tip a lot with the minister. That's very accurate. Big deal. Yeah but so one of the one of the hands on exercises in our workshop. I didn't bring up was an overlay where we try to make a wax rim for patients that have teeth right. So if you're if you're going with an additive process and you've got somebody that you wanna change the size alleged lanes in the example. I use is somebody with bilateral clips cleft surgery. They've got scar tissue. They can't move their lip very much. You don't wanna be off on your lip or your tooth position so you can make an overlay with the mini star over the top and essentially make a wax rx and see how respond to that. You know you. You picture Chandler from friends you know when he was with monica and they're trying to take the wedding picture and every time. The camera came on chandler. Couldn't smile right if patients like that too. You know you can get a wax weckstrom in there and you can catch them at that point. When they're just being spontaneous natural you know as a sense is alleged link rate but it goes back to that wax room concept whether it's dentists or partially benched ben tate. You know that kind of thing but you're the first process i've ever heard us a friend's analogy all right. -gratulations today thought a while his friends starting. It's a funny old. It's real milestone with dental. That's right this is really a lot of good stuff here. I can't imagine someone listening to this first off. What i'm hearing is even if you hate dentures there's a lot and even even if you're not gonna really do dentures. There's a lot to this course. That would be worth taking. I think so. I think it transfer i think. Honestly it's a summary of everything that's taught here. I mean it's a summary. Oh tooth position right tooth position. Problem is a big deal. Whether it's way or you know using orthodontics worn dentition kind of things and to physician right. That's what we're learning we're.

"Going to sticking down. It looks kind of like that. Guy from from jason's james bond. I looked at as when they would. I like about it. Is you know how did this person get to the state in the first place right so not everybody but a fair number. Maybe weren't in the same room as toothbrush right. I mean they're not used to keep things clean but with a sin the the fittest so precision style. That if they don't keep it clean it's not gonna work right so in other words it won't fit in or if they try to jam and they can't get it out means they need to come see me. I talked about keeping things clean. But even if they're nike mclean. Tissue is pink. it's healthy. everything is really good right. The bone maintains itself around. Implants like this. We don't see the implants being pushed out to the on. That kind of thing bull moss. So the repairability of something like this as something where i can repair it while they're in the office. You know there's one kind we pair where you repair it. And they're they're on their way or you got to send to the lab and have it fixed you know. Maybe we'll have a pack and a few days maybe a couple of weeks you know what i mean so. It's really in and out kind of repair. And i think you know when you think about the long-term low maintenance kind of a treatment goal you know the patients that i i put these in eight nine years ago. I haven't changed their attachments once. Not once when you think about a locator. Three six months zero in eight nine years right. I mean so. This is really a low maintenance long term kind of deal so super excited about that telescopic approach really so we had a i had a chance to hear arena sailor. Couple times you know. Obviously she's from europe and she shows a lot of telescopic teeth right old school process and somebody in the audience was like so. Why don't we do that more in the states. And it's like. I don't know it's a question good question right. I mean you know. we're being conservative. If we can keep teeth to me. And i told us to a lot of patients teeth. Actually act like an implant right. Why be so quick to go to an implant with ligament we've got healthy structures here. Maybe we can use this for a while but knowing the background that okay. We'll strategically placed implant so down the road. We're ready to win the title. I'm so i kind of like that. Phased approach style. Truman planning to kind of wrap around that. Do you feel like asked us to a lot of a lot of instructors at spear the way that implants are marketed. And maybe even some of the educational Stuff dentist get that they marketed as implants are just the solution. So you know so. In other words to that that isn't The prognosis is a little more questionable. There people are quick to get him out there like this. Please implants because these teeth. You know teeth there. It's almost. I feel like in some situations. It's like teeth that are in pretty good. Shape are being taken out because the ease of use of implants. Where rally i feel like. There's so much so much downside potential backlash on that. What do you think about that. Yeah i agree. I mean they had a piece and the other day refuse to have ended treatment. Done they just want the two thousand have an implant place like oh wait a minute. This is a molar. it's got three routes. I mean it's going to stay around a while. Yeah i'm not sure that that's the rate you approach. The patient tells you i've had root canals and they've all failed. Don't even you know there's a lot there's a lot that goes on with that and The the root canals don't work on me is one of the more frustrating conversations. Every dentist has it. Yeah that's right that's right and the you know the. I hate to say what i was taught but at least what i heard. Is that when implants were pleased. That was forever right the problem with the the crown or the restoration. Something would chipper fractured on the road. But you know two thousand nineteen. That's not what i'm seeing seeing loss just like what we see with period on donald disease teeth. Actually i mean we're we're having problems with implant to. Yeah yeah i think. I think that's a message that we all need to kind of hear a little bit. Maybe don't rush into implants so quickly especially there's a lot of techniques you can use dang onto teeth in that. That's that's really cool. So i feel like our audience would be angry at us if we didn't ask you about how what you're seeing in in dentures the digital aspect moving the workflow into digital dentures. It's thing about what. What have you seen with that. And so this is this has been a topic of interest. Of course i had a chance About a year ago who work with the patient and printed adventure for him And you know that was. That was pretty cool experience. So so what do i really like about. It is that you know. Let's say for example. So i have a patient that comes in. You know he had implants. Placed idea was for an on for work. But this is a true skeletal class to kind of a patient. Denture that was made for him was shifted back to a class one Implants were already pleased in that position. So now i'm looking at them and we're thinking the airway component a little bit. The transverse arch form. You know what's what's involved here so for me to put the teeth out where they need to be. If i'm gonna use the landmarks and actually rebuild that skeletal class to i mean that's kind of a stretch for a patient. They can say yes. I can draw my drawings on the computer screen. But until they actually see it in their mouth and work with it. They don't really know so a printed denture. I could see where. Okay i can expanded out. They can go home and try it out trade to spend it on a little bit more. Maybe we can dial it back a little bit. It's a matter of changing the program on the computer screen and reprinting it right in that redoing. The setup process going from from the start in that regard are huge fan of boiling out. Though i can tell you still do it myself but You know. I went to chicago winter meeting. You know and i have a cerebral in the office. Gersbach deal and i really want to mill base with that. I mean that's kind of how old and really all i can do with. Their system is mill waxed base. Roy interesting okay. So what happened was or at least my understanding of it was that they tried to make pucks out of different colors of pink. You know but it didn't go through the fda what didn't pass the fda interesting so they're what they shared with me was. Hey if it doesn't go through the fda pretty soon we're just gonna go to print it right so if you look at stay the right now to us. Nineteen the milled. Denture base is the best rate cantu cans the great Retention stability that kind of thing. But everybody's seeing the advantages of printed style denture. So i think that's where it's going. I mean he certainly have a variety of different printers that are available from the carbon printers. One hundred hundred twenty thousand. You got The sarah printer. That's here. that's about twenty thousand. You got a lot in the five thousand range. I mean you can expect a different denture base as a result of some of these printers in the accuracy or the density or the Impact resistance you know things like that so just like with dentures their traditional dentures. There's a lot of variable a lot of discrepancy that we were accounting for a lot of that unknown. I think there's a lot of that still with printed or milled trying to figure out But i think that's definitely the future as far as that goes Do you see any Any inroads for the for the general for the gp use the three d. printed. A wax ups for the frameworks for for parcels. Or being able to cut down on an appointment times for for those types of things or you know. I'm not sure that will actually cut down on an appointment times. I don't know maybe maybe you see something differently but to me all the time. Savings is on the lab side. So would we see that in clinical practice that we would see that quite as much and maybe have. I don't know but i'm.

"Tell me. am i right about that. The all in four is one of those little things that kinda stick in my heart right so when when that was developed. This was four maladaptive denture patients. You think about. They've already got bowl moss. They've already. They're missing a lot. They don't have denture. that fits. you can't can't work with what you have right so there's plenty of space and we talk about space. You know from implant platform the insides leads. We're talking fifteen million tonnes to work to work with but then now two thousand nineteen see. A lot of people are coming in. They've got teeth and we're cutting the bone away taken away that bone. Yeah so what. I'm seeing in my practice are patients that come in. They've had the bone taken away and now implants failing. What's your plan. Yeah then what's your plan b. So i mean it's one of those things that's kinda hitting my heartbreak okay. All for is great for a specific patient population but there are other options. There's some fundamentals of treatment. Planning were sort of missing yes. Let's leave on four for later if we need it. I don't want to just jumped his angle back. You know and that kind of thing. I wanna i wanna just say okay. What do we have what we have to work with. Do we have a plan beat on the road. Can we help this patient. Get a great result without taking tunnel blown away. I mean that's and that's where. I'm afraid of jumping on the bandwagon to the easiest. Because i mean there's a lot of advantages to alan for random quick simple easy to explain that kind of thing one file on. You'll have perfect endo every time just saying in talking to some people that have that all they do is for all the time. The one thing that sticks out to me. Is you know. There's a lot of repairs. A lot of stuff that goes on. That is a huge part of their practice on instagram. That they have really keeps him down and the best instagram posts kept it in a filters on it. Yeah that's exactly right. That's i just feel like a lot of contrast. Do you work in the terminal. Dentition coarser not really. I don't really don't there's kind of weird to immediately fit in with. Would you guys to germany. I bring up the terminal. Dentition component workshop. I france so. That's that's plan b thing. The plan c. You know how do you work with the patient traits or do we keep teeth around and one is valuable. When is the not working you know. What's the strategy. Or what are we looking for right. So for example. Canine for a canine. That's one of those red flags to me. That the to the you know the titian going down to the place where eventually they're going to be angeles right. So if we're gonna lose a canine replace or would we put an implant for an implant assisted removable partial by some more time. But are we thinking ahead to implant over and then later wish you hadn't a lot of cases where that could happen for sure that's right that's right so i've had a few patients here recently. Where you know they were. They were referred to me for dentures. I had one lady i think. Eight or nine years ago referred to me for dentures. And i'm like well. Hey what if you're going to lose your teeth anyway. Why don't we just do a couple of things here. Maybe i can splint some teeth together. Eight or nine years later now. We're making dentures right. And she's she's ready right. She's got the mindset. We're get now. I'm ready for this because it takes a while to get to the point where it's to lose my tea. But she's also thankful she's like oh. I got eight or nine years out of this another one two years right. I mean if you can get a patient in that mindset to. They're not thinking that basically everything a dentist touches should last forever right Which frankly is sometimes even while you're doing that treatment. You're explaining that this isn't forever that's right this is gonna last as long as we can make it last. But i think there's a lot of patients that push back against that but it has a lot to do with your verbal skills and a lot to do with how you it takes more time to explain that to a patient so you don't have the time to do it you will. There's times with outcome budget. Because you just weren't able to explain what what you're actually trying to do here knowing that eventually you're gonna lose teeth and that's i only say this with so much details because it's a struggle for me. It's there's a i i've got. I'm lethal three cases. Where i'm like. It's realistic expectations. Yeah i haven't and i've got i've got a guy. He does not have realistic expectations. And he's going. He's going to lose all his teeth faster than i even thought and he still doesn't have any idea. That's that was my mistake i. I'm not doing well enough with that. So i don't know i think. Sometimes the psychology of patients who are are either dentists or leaning towards a dentist. I think dennis struggle with that on some level how we tell us about the psychological component. What have you learned about that stuff. You're you have to know about it. It really goes back to the relationship building partner trade so the pictures and everything that teach here i think that helps you get them into that mindset but i mean sentenced of psychology views. Both words i like that is just. How can we have a real discussion about where you're at right now you know. How can we make a change. You know what can we do. But we have to be real about where we're at right now. And that's that's really. The point is setting the expectation. So they know what's going to happen now. If we lose this tooth we're going to have to have a talk gentleman. Come in the other day broke a tooth and like okay. So we're kind of at this point we can stable implants in for every tooth right but look at. We've got six implants already. You know maybe we can do something else. That's a little more cost efficient and maybe a little less on the repair side road maintenance. Part so yeah. It's just taking the time to talk to him every step of the way and we all get to that point where it's five o'clock and we gotta go. Yeah exactly have you seen any any change. It seems like the obviously goes intrinsic. You get the all. Let's go for the implants. And now you see kind of a pullback and talking about some telescopic prosthesis and over dentures and things are you seeing kind of going back to some of these. you're talking old school process. Tell us open crowns. And that's probably saying the wrong thing. Yeah i mean. I if i were to tell you from my perspective i mean i you know my through my program. I'd come in with some of the cases. Okay it's time for a denture right but now now i'm more about keeping t maybe more old school. The it's interesting. You bring up the telescopic approach. Because i really liked. I mean that's very european approach it is it is and you know like the cinco and that would be my number one choice for a patient. I mean just explain that a little bit too for. We have a lot of dental students ensure then people out there that might not have knowledge about me. He didn't go to the military. Didn't pay attention. That might be. Yeah right so the The sin cone conus style night. And i say sinn corn. Because really when i was introduced to it as through the ankylosis implant system so this is a german implant system and what the idea was is to get implants in parallel. And now we've got a prefabricated abutment. That's four six degrees with a metal cap that goes over. The top in the middle cap is incorporated into the denture. And then we make a metal framework that fits in the denture so essentially. The bar is in the denture. We got metal on metal attachments. And then we've got an easy way to keep everything clean. So you know individual abutment s- you know around the arch. They got another.

"Refining that really since two thousand fifteen two so just a callback to darren's episode a couple of weeks ago. Yeah i was. I was saying not so nice things about the university of minnesota process program. He said hey. I know some people. Welcome to the people at their core. Sorry my allen meet burn route ninety seven true with a smile. I mean okay. So i love this because so you actually you prove to me that that someone from my background can actually do this. We went to the same school. I mean it's it's so funny so you guys developed this course tell also i mean you know that general. Dennis particularly restored does In general they got not a lotta great dench experience in dental school and in the younger they are now. We have a lot of younger listeners. Maybe got almost no background in a dentist's arches. So you're you're filling a lot of blanks with with this course. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah right so. I mean i think about gary to would. He said he made seventeen dentures while he's in dental school right. I got to teach dental school here. Some of the students don't even get to actually make this watch it happen. Yeah so Darren i got together. I mean we're we're trying to be very ambitious with the three days that we have. We're going from ada z. Anything that you can do to treat dental patient in that time period and so of course. Where do we start. We start with dentures. And sometimes that's a turn off right talk about dentures. Kind of brings up that emotion go to that motion. He can't use that. Frontal lobe. can't think through any of this stuff. I'm kind of freaking out right now. But we start off when we show a case where. Wait a minute if you don't know where to put the teeth. How are you going to plan this right. You know somebody wants to come in and they want to spend money on implants like i think what you really gotta know where that heath go and how it fits in the face raid. So frank really took a lot of the information from facially generated true and planning from the denture world. And we're taking back and saying. Hey wait a minute here. The this really fits for somebody. That is handicapped. That are having trouble in a social situation. They can't go to a restaurant order off a menu right. How do we help these people. How do we. How do we bring this into practice so that we can provide a service like that so we go through the denture part of it and then we go through and over denture part with implants. Only start with the locators. Everybody has some kind of connection with locations but the the great thing is that with any attachment system. There's a lot of similarities with locator. So they can build off that we start to go into saint cone. Conus i kind of thing bar over dentures. we moved into the fixed realm. Unsee six colonel bridge the hybrid though on for that's got the rage right now but then how do you make sense of all that you know. When do you decide. I want to go with on for versus an over denture. So you had car on right before me right and he has. He's part of this paper. The lt our concept lip tooth ridge. And we're using things like that. We have three different ways of saying. Hey check this out. Look at the patient. This might help you decide which option to go with. It's not always on four so speaks we try to make that point and we have our hands on exercises that we do to help with the pain points so to speak. Yeah tell me a little bit. What are the hands on exercises. Course go ahead tell you right now. I'm pretty sold on the idea of this course. Because i'm like i said i'm lacking a lot and stuff plus sign up tomorrow. We also got a chance to win. And he's he's an excellent teacher. he's a really good teacher. So i'm more i would not have. This would not have been like on my top list. Maybe but you're you're sucking me in. Doug wow then kind of thinking so tell us about the hands on stuff too right right so one of the things that comes up. Is you have a real patient in the chair. And you're having a real conversation. How do you talk to them about whether implants possible. Because that's the minute you wanna grab that right so we do a lot of things in the analog world that you can translate into the digital world so the first exercise is to convert the denture into a model that you can do a space analysis right there on the spot and say okay. Yeah we can do implants but we gotta take some bone away over here. We might have add some bone over here or we have to do something with your lip support right here. Because we're we we see a problem right now so when you when you're talking about guess i hate to say it but it's a big ticket item right. This is an expensive kind of a deal for implant related restore starter treatment. Somehow but people think of us like can go down the street and get a similar solution right but if you can help them have a meaningful discussion at that point in time. What's involved with their mouth. Then it's like okay. Now i'm following you. See what else does it you know. It's that hands on first part. How do we figure out if we have enough space. That's exercise number one. We work on incorporating locator attachments ensure denture. That seems like it's pretty easy to do. But we always have a lot of fun talking with that and coming up with some challenging parts of that can make a window. Do you open the whole thing or you may apply and you know that kind of thing and it's is into you've locked just say play from experience hucker for me on that exactly. It's all i've been there so. Yeah we Verification jigs so whether it's an implant supported or implant Bar you know. How do we connect the implants together. How does this Work with an implant bar versus as or cornea tiebreaker. Right how how much accuracy we need. And why. Why do we do this. When do we do this that kind of thing. We converted denture into immediate hybrid. It's so cool hands out. That's that's great that's great. I love that we try to relate that like okay so we have some greet Techniques australia's got the vcr technique. You know we've got the nc quance where you can. You can do everything of time. But what happens if the bone isn't quite right. You gotta learn how to do this the old fashioned way so you can recover from a challenge so surely we're trying to combine analog and the digital world with all this you think you'd think that's a that's a problem these days because a lot of people see the sexy all on four on instagram. And and you know just let's go for it. And then i see that i'm like how did they. How did they get that bite house. I got by going to be perfect. My mind is kind of starts to flash look at. I look at all on for in. Tell me me. If i'm wrong i look at all on four is in clearly. There's there's a lot of clinical reasons to do it. it's it is. It's an interesting and and can be a really great restoration. But i look at that in a lot of ways like how the new endo files going to change your life in basically you didn't like endo before view by this firing love end in all on four is like you know you struggled with with this. Kind of a hybrid. You struggle this but if you do this way you're gonna love it and my things like a lot of times. Dentists are quick to jump on the latest tool. That's gonna fix the problems that the winning reality is almost always going back to the fundamentals and understanding stuff. That and. i don't like that because that's not a shortcut. That's that's actually doing the work you know i'd sure got however i think demonstrates kind of rife with that. Do you.
"dr doug" Discussed on The Dental Hacks Podcast
"Nice. People are one guy very angry. That's probably i had some struggles to but i remember. I remember at one point. Remember when they used to tell you. That is a really bad tasting mouthwash. It was red and it's called called the vora process. Wanted you to have them rinse with. I think it was because it was drying at all. I gave this to a guy who was upper upper over lower partial and he told me that you have to rinse with this and i went to start making my i went back. He didn't understand what he's supposed to drink at o. Forces not good stuff. No he choked it down and just like a champion like okay. I'm ready doc. I'm like oh my god so what even say with that. That gives you an idea of how my my ackerman with prosthetics. Let's get pretty quickly back street. I'm sorry so i do remember. I struggle with a lot of that stuff because because you thrive in dental school it sounds like if you were meeting i kind of just survived so it is interesting to know that it's there if you know where to look for and if you're if you're if you got the mindset having the lab background probably had to help a lot yeah as setting teeth for my classmates you know that dude. Yeah but it gave me more experience sharing. Just kinda helped me learn what was happening and what i shouldn't do what worked like thing so Yeah thankful for that. Yeah definitely oh. Wow that's a trip man. I just. I don't run into very many minnesota grads that they can check me on whether i'm lying there anyhow so you went to pross at university of minnesota ida okay and then after that i mean how does how does a minnesotan make it out to arizona. Because that's where you're practicing now right. That's right so you're not a minnesota south dakota right. Yeah so if. I were to give you my hometown. I'd say rockford illinois at college in south dakota and the okay okay midwestern midwestern right so after dental or after a press program. I worked at dental specialist minnesota so it was a great opportunity. There's another process providence. There kind of thing Oral surgeon ended on the whole specialty. Crew you know so. It was great to have that information right at my fingertips for somebody practice then hasn't been able to to refer within. Gosh that's great and As you probably know in minnesota they have snow rain. And you get the big three foot drifts on your roof. Yeah this thing. Called an ice dam melts underneath. And then the water's going into the shingle and tap me on the shoulder and trying to scrape it off. And it's going down the back of my jack and then like okay. I got i got choice. No that's exactly right but you know when you come out to arizona. There's a ton of people from minnesota of people. There are people at the core. This is the most midwest feeling area there is. You know we've had enough. So they go to arizona. A lot of patients that spend more time in arizona than they do in michigan knows. Yeah right right so it's been great out here okay. Came out in two thousand six okay. Was it hard to practice out here and there are a lot. It's pretty popular spot for us to come right. It's kind of the native environment for dentists. This is it's it's you know. I mean it probably not like california or you know other places but you know a lot of dennis practice here a lot of people wanna come here because of the weather or what have you. There are two dental schools down here. So i'm ansa. It's a place that people want to be. And what i realize is i got to know people. When i was in minnesota going through school going through the press program people would refer to me because they knew me during that and come out here and nobody knows who i am. I had to start from scratch journey. Get the word out. And try to generate that referral. Yeah okay so. Arizona has a mean okay. People know that spears here so it's kind of it's kind of a focus for delegating education on some of his a lot of implant courses and stuff like that. I am curious about. How do you start from scratch when you're specialists in arizona like did you know anyone to start with a was just kind of you open up urge with someone. Would you do bought a practice. Three years old. At the time. They'll gentleman i bought from actually went back to school to be an orthodontist. He started from scratch so at three years old is still kind of scratch. Start because the now it's a different person but at least ahead of foothold right. I got. I had people that i could at least talk to and get to know a little bit sure. Essentially it's going out there trying to get past the front desk. You can have lunch with the doctor or anything i mean. That's that's really what it is so there's some good days and not so fun days. You know that kinda thing but it's just a matter of just being persistent getting out there and getting to know people kind of a little side side. No question i know. The valuation of some specialty practices are a little bit different. Ended up being a little bit different woods. What's the scope of how how to value of practice out there as much more. Like a general practice or to give specific. Obviously but i'm going to say it's like a general practice but this is kind of the interesting thing that i'm learning is When i was going through my process program there is. There's kind of a thought that was ingrained in my mind that if he had a hygienist. You weren't a real process. Yes yeah but if you don't have a hygiene recall system you don't really have how you to a practice so i didn't. There wasn't hygiene recall system in the practice i bought. I mean it's all based on that person. So how does that transfer. It doesn't really transfer the same as a gentle dental per dozen better than than inheriting cases from the old guy. Because you don't have anything but cases from the old guy right. I did really. I didn't even realize that was a thing because most prosthetic practices. That i've dealt with have have hygienist. Seem function like highly functioning general practice and i think that's a model that has to continue to work. You know especially if we want to transfer value down the road for selling across iraq specifically. I wonder how the ended onic practices. Do it that kind of thing i mean. Obviously there's an emergency pain kind of a deal that gets people to come in and do work right away. But there's more of a relationship aspect sure ross scientists. I think that's important. What percentage of you obviously ended on the problem with evaluation ended on practices. Lots of has worn off. It's one off asian. you'll never see them again. What percentage of a prosthetic practice are kind of one off one of things. Well okay so in arizona. Maybe more okay. We'll see Fifteen twenty percent. And that's going to be somebody. That's coming from michigan or minnesota. They come down here the wintertime. Fix this for me or you know. Can you help me out with this patient. Sutro and back You know so. I a few one offs like that but everything else. It's all relationship. I mean i've known these people for a long time. Something happens then you know they send their family in that kind of thing. So i mean it's it's relationship based. Yeah just pardon. My curiosity is so you're you're in a in a prosperous mid-2000s and your year I'm curious how how your connection with spears started like like being that. That's kind of why we're all here and everything like that. So how how did that happen. So when we were going through our prosperous z program. We would go to the american culture press beating in the in the fixed press meeting in chicago and i saw frank speak just. He saw this lecture on you know orthodontics versus restored dentistry. Make the decision. He had decision tree. And everything like that and minnesota. We didn't do anything with the ortho tried then as a whole floor it's like they don't exist but it just opened my mind. I mean this one hour lecture just as like a mind blow to me. So i'm like i want. I need to learn from the sky right. So when i was able to do it i went to the all the hotels seminars and that kind of thing and actually had elite a year and a half to get into the facially generated trian planning workshop in seattle. And so greg was up there. And i think it was kind of a neat experience really in their office right in their office and while i was in there. They're like yeah. We're gonna move everything down to scottsdale. And i'm like did you say Scottsdale arizona so so then they had this thing where you could sign up to a visiting faculty member of the faculty club and the idea being you know you could take the courses but she also mentor. The course so i could hear it again. People get to take it. Be all quite often repetitious deal. Yeah for lear- learning is what they say At the time. I was studying for my board exam. And so you know everything that frank head with his references and everything it just kind of fit in you know seamlessly with that idea does a no-brainer really to sign up for that. And i've really enjoyed that experience. Gotten to know a lot of people over the years as a result So mentoring for awhile. And then all night got to be a part of the restoring. Dentist arch workshops. Develop that there and we've Been.

"He's going to be a great course. April eight to nine coming up soon as a great teacher and it's always good to go over the basics. They're doing some amazing things over there in chicago. Thanks a lot for sporting show cosby dental hacks nation. Welcome back to another special episode recorded. Live at these beer. Summit here in arizona phoenix arizona at the j w marriott desert ridge which is a shockingly nice i mean spirited shockingly nice venue to this makes sense but shockingly. I've i've been in some pretty pretty bad venues for dental meeting. So i'm just saying it's really pretty good place so with me as always my stalwart companion. Dr jason lipscomb hollow in joining us is a guy by the name of dr doug. Bending doug welcomed the show Thanks for having me great till year. Doug teaches four spear. He talks about a topic. That many restorative dentists struggle with. I think that's a failing. Yeah you know. You can have your own strauss jason. You jason what do you. What do you think about arches. Are you huge. Fan of restoring Artists love interest out. If i could have whole day. Interest is telling is telling doug tell doug that in our facebook group. The dental annexation. It's like if there's one thing that we all agree on. We hate dentures honestly. Because it's like. I think a lot of people didn't get great background and dental school especially if they're younger and all that stuff so in this is what you teach essentially is that right. That's right that's right. I mean dentures are really how i got into dentistry. I replied to an ad for a job while as a high school to sweep the the media lab. Somebody quit and they're like here. Let me show you some of the steps to make denture. Labs work a little to talk did and they put Interesting okay we'll we'll actually prefaces for a little bit of a story. I was i was taking the. Add many track at my local dental school And within that you get a lot of classes at you probably normally wouldn't seek out turned in one of the classes was renewables course and i still hearken back to that and how valuable that was but you know you in your dentist mind. You wouldn't look say. Oh my god. I gotta have that too but i do go back and see the extreme value going back and learning those skills right. I mean there's all over again. This is the reason they teach that first dental school now. But there's a problem with as we don't have any information to draw from to literally been talking about the lack of contexts. The dental schools have to deal with for months now. Just because but i. I'm very interested to know that like you are literally a high school kid working at a dental lab. How soon before. They had to do an dental stuff. I mean i'll say three months so you were a high school student working on the gods heroes. That was my first job. Oh my gosh. So what does this. How does the sixteen year old like the handle that. That's amazing to me. Okay my dad. When i was in college. And i kind of he's dennis. I sorta knew that that i would be. I was pretty interesting dental school. He showed me how to poor model. That was when i got to dental school. That was my one one thing he had really showed me and i probably didn't do. I still don't do very well to be honest. But i'm trying to imagine what a sixteen year old learns at a denture lamb. That's amazing yeah right. So of course they had cleaned the plaster trap and all the things that no one wants to do but then it's like boiling out. Denture flask right. And so that's not really technically sensitive or anything like that but you gotta be careful when you start to realize if you lose some of the teeth bath that that's the problem right because you're you're starting over that point right but then you learn you know okay. Now let's let's flip this up. You know you know what the flow does you know how that that's important than here's how you pour the plaster in the flask and the different layers and which is kind of builds from there and i kind of learned that way. We all learned that way one-step next the way it's the way every dental student should learn because on some level i remember in dental school like it is. It's the constant problem of not having context. If you don't know okay anything about dentures. so i certainly didn't know about how they make dentures. Because i know anything about dentures but at some point you had to figure how do they get these teeth into that plastic shape and frankly that's dental school everything about that and so like having that background going in. It's like you were destined to be a prostitute at that point you to dental work in dental is almost guaranteed right. That was my focus going into the school. i wanted to be oppressed. Okay i mean how many people someone says that. The six can kind of tell where i am on the weird skip. I wouldn't have mentioned that it's kind of a problem with spear a lot of those processes around us. Kevin know that all the acrylic over the years. There's a reason withdrawn to that okay. So you're a high school student. You're learning you're learning the dental lab field and you decide okay. I'm going to dental school. Where where'd you go to school. University of minnesota south dakota first and then university of minnesota university of minnesota he really created nineteen. Ninety-seven is ninety. Nine okay okay. And so how the hell did. I miss your clinic while i was in product did you did you do your residency there. I did yeah so so. We know a lot of people. We know a lot of people. that's crazy obviously. That's okay so mean. I've said a lot of bad things about the process department and got the university of minnesota. Interestingly what's really funny about it though is that i suffered from the same thing that you did though or you're talking about. I didn't have a context so the same things that you knew exactly how to. That's amazing to me allow. That is so cool. Okay so you went in wanting be processed which is very rare which is very. I even know what it process was. I went in knowing that you wanted to do. And i would say at the time probably once every three years. Somebody from dental school at minnesota went into process. I mean it wasn't very common. No that's right. Yeah that's right. Did you have any experience with the process. There's a. I got to teach or not teach. But i i worked in a press nas lab afterward. Pay his lab. While i was in dental school and i did lab work for him. So that kind of brought my level up jer again. We knew the new law. The right people point. It's kind of on the inside. I was looking for these people to be mentors trying to see if that would work and to be honest with you. I wasn't exactly excited about process after seeing you know what i saw and the network with a general dentist after that and that's when i was really like well wait a minute. I really do like this stuff you know so the party. You know the goal. We did a lot of go work. Minnesota obviously gone by the wayside. But yeah what was the watershed moment that made you made you switch the that that you weren't excited to know that you were right so it's You know what you're going through this process and remember that first denture you make in dental school right and i just remember. The guy's is lighting up because we gave him that. I don't know it visible personal body right and you give them that ability to have facial expression back and give him that support back and it's just things that he was missing. He didn't realize that he's gonna teeth for a long time. You know it's like you know what this this is really a handicap. And i really want to help people get through so that they can make it so even even dentures. Obviously that's not like natural teeth. Obviously we have implants that we can work with. I mean a huge benefit there that the denture made such big difference for this guy. It really kind of stuck with my heart phone do they. Do they do special pross when you were there. In other words it was the first clinical experience. I had at minnesota the second year where they they would put you t me with another dental student. And you'd get one denture patient and work on them and so they did do they. Were doing that like that. Was your first clinical experience. Say as much as i struggled with dentures in dental school. That experience was quite good because the patient was the sweetest guy right. Remember i mean those some of them. Are they come from all over the place in the twin cities and there is something to minnesota nice. That's like these are really.

Yes the being held up right now by the The the countertop right now which is holding up the entire inspection because of the countertop so yeah supposed to have patience on tuesday. But i don't know if that's going to happen or not good for i mean you're getting there this you'll look back and laugh on it soon enough. Oh oh all male pattern baldness. I come from stress in. Ibs the whole nine yards this. Well that exciting. It'll be a good story to tell right there. You have it. Enjoy your fully-functioning office. That's been going for quite some time. Yeah like you know. sometimes. I don't but the fact that i have it and i don't have to like countertops and stuff is pretty awesome. I can say that. And there's a lot of things wrong with it. But that's not one of them. I have my countertop so that's good yes joy you treasure those countertops now. I know and i know that. I know that you've been just all over the place right. I mean it's one of the things where you've got. It's hard to do the stuff that you would be doing while. You're like sweating over these little things and a lot of times. It's hurry up and wait. I remember when we were put ours together. It was always you know the person bringing this thing is going to be here at x. Time and they were never there at x. Time they were always late. Always you know yeah. I remember that it's fun stuff. Not for the faint of heart. You'll crush it. you'll crush it here. Yeah so. I've i've had an interesting week like i before. We went to spear the spear summit. Some weeks ago. I essentially bought like the whole wave. One gold system with the little wireless hand piece. That's run by an ipad. And then there's like a wireless down pack heat element the whole nine yards. I went. I went all in. I'm like you know what i'm gonna do. Endo on him to do it with a system. And i got my got the hand piece. The hand piece put together with the little ipad. And i have to tell you. That is a brilliant piece of technology is very cool. Like i'm just looking around and trying to do root canals on everyone now because because it looks very fun and my assistants are excited about indo because of this now. That never happened never happened. We're all excited. So so it's it's. I'll put a lincoln show. No it's the. I q fancy schmancy wireless hand piece from dense by surrounded but man it's hell. It's really cool. So i'm very excited about it. Did you root canals. And you say wow yeah. I think it's i think it's the kind of thing that if you don't like endo you this might be kind of like for the guy who doesn't like i don't know i i. Also this system is really nice in other words. It's i know that endo is not fair to say into his cookbook. But but it's thought out so like step by step in the in the files are it's very well. Basta that's a throwback to your paw out to her budget there's a lot of listeners that don't know that song they walk that data's a little bit surround is going to take that run with it though. Say right now that's right. So we're going to have a new kid denser on the world's gonna featured new kids next year in orlando the pulse stuff and maybe they'll less. Maybe they'll let us go onstage. Maybe we can dance with them. We could do it you could. I don't know if i could do. You could do it to shame. Got the move. You got the right stuff. Joy mcintyre could suck it. It's it's systematic. I like this system part of it. So i will report back when i've actually done some root canals with it. It's hot dramatic it's automatic. It's loop lightning you just full of it tonight. Aren't you know full of somebody stops knowledge. Okay so we're gonna talk about our interview for today. Show is awesome features. Dr doug bending coast talk with while we were at spear. If you don't like treating dentists arch is. I think doug is the only person on earth that might make it vine us pretty good making out if the dangerous just. That's an acquired taste. I would say definitely death literally. I think we'll just leave that one there. I think nothing more needs to be said about that so doug. Honesty graduated from the university of minnesota. A couple years behind me which i didn't realize before we started the the episode. So it's kind of cool to run to another university of minnesota grand- He's in phoenix area. He's process teaches at spear and he teaches in the treating the dentists arch class and he endeared easter our friend errand easter teach that course and he was talking a lot about what they do in the course and in the value you might get from the course in frankly. I wasn't like super psyched about doing a denture ordinary. Kind of 'em he literally sort of sold me on the course in this lecture did you. Were you like yeah. I think that'd be a good course to take when you're listening to this. Then that's never something that julie seek out but i've kind. I've kind of said in the past that i've even in the The the fellowship class for the gdp. You can't afford to take stuff that you wouldn't normally take. And and some of the stuff of taking the most away from his is removable classes It's not sexy. It's not seek out. But i definitely don't take this spirit and the nice thing from they go from removable to also implant treating Arch with implants treatment. Planning for removable salute. I mean they kind of run the gamut it sounds like but but a lot of it is learning where to set teeth. I love that that part was good. He was he was really good. He's super nice guy. Seems like it'd be really good teacher to take from and there's plenty hands on in the course to a workshop so i don't know man i think that i that sounds pretty good. I think i think that's a course. I wanna take in. Doug seemed like a really nice guy.

"Takes that will permanently change who they are because they would no longer be interested in abusing and manipulating and other people. Because they're doing it's not there anymore. So that's our hope. Okay let's let's put it this way. That's our hope that society will get to the point where it's no longer not only acceptable but nobody has the taste for it anymore. Because of that so beautifully said said what about the myth of progress aspect of it right. So you're there your cell in your thing that if we just get this augmented reality with more cubit kind of power we can get there. There's a bushman over in africa. Who's sitting there. And he's just rolling on the ground laughing he's like don't you realize it's it's you're kind of moving in the wrong direction you think you're and you're not at your leading to potential for all the be co opted or not even take that last part out. It's just that it's not necessary. It's just you're progressing towards what it's already there. The kingdom is right there. yeah absolutely. It's like the aborigines to you. Not even the any shamans you know they have. They have make connection with nature and we only get back to that and nature is who are higher self is and and the are are are bigger self. that's outside of space it outside time and and that it has the values because it goes does realize we're not connected. We're we're we're not disconnected. Were connected and that we have these values because they feel good you know and they have this. Why would we amplify infinite pain if we had a choice to as a higher consciousness state you know and unfortunately that's that's i think it's you don't have to choose evil. You just have to choose something else you know in. That's the thing choose. I'm with you. I again wander. Here's what i. I was driving at with that. I think there's a legitimate case to be made. And.
"dr doug" Discussed on Skeptiko - Science at the Tipping Point
"And how that all might relate to doug's understanding of what he's calling source science which is really just another way saint quantum physics in a way. I mean like. I say it's remarkable remarkable stuff. Doug and i were talking just admitted ago that you know. Hey maybe doesn't have as many media appearances as some other people do. I don't know. I watched a couple of his presentations on youtube. And it's like fantastic. Stop i read the book. it's powerful stuff. And i think that the reason why we are not more welcoming as an overall society collective science community to doug's work. I think turn out to be part of this story but we gotta get to. The guy talked to dr doug. Thanks for joining me on skeptical some so glad you're here. Thanks alex appreciate it so tell us a little bit about this remarkable book. What is sort science exactly well part of it being. That's going on in the metaphysics area but also in the regular. You know I even you know like everybody's trying to figure out. Well what how are we smart you know. And how are we intelligent whereas from from you know and ultimately in like even if you include the law of attraction lob attractions as well. Where's meaning from leno. All has to do with our underlying model of how we represent thoughts and meaning which is what he is about to right and so the question is if you understand that the universe is ultimately quantum mechanical you know Vindman says the world is not classical. Bama it's quantum mechanical and so when you realize that you go well. How does that relate to all of these topics that we're just listing here. It turns out that if you look at ultimately physics has bits part of physics in other words. You no longer treat bits as computer science anymore. Physics bits are physics. It's physics the physics of black holes and quantum hold on hold on. We're already going to lose people and there's no need to lose people because your book is incredibly lucid and accessible on on that level it quickly gets deep you can quickly kinda travel cliff here but start with something simple what we talk about a lot of time on this show is the old double slit experiment. So this through the double slit experiment and then explain for us like you do really beautifully and i always point this out to people. What dean rate doctor dean rain. Many people know in wrote a just a glowing review of your book so take us to the old double slit experiment. Which i off i often say is really should be renamed as the consciousness is real experiment but how we got from there and then how there was all this confusion about it that was created and then what dean graydon did really kind of berry that once and for all from a metaphysical standpoint. Yeah the double slit experiment ties all those things that were just talking about together because it says look at the very low level quantum mechanics israel right and it has this weird property where everything is a wave. Even a single electron interacting with itself. Acts like way not multiple electron system single electron so goes through both slits at one time. And where do you put that in a box..

The doctor came up with I thought it'd be good for people to get to know you better at the whole picture where it's not just looking at you as perhaps a school board member, or the director of as she headaches. Kinda give your background what leads you to be able to even create an defies such as stem? You WanNa start with your background where you see growing up here. Sharia, I grew up in Lafayette. My father was laughing at city, police officer and retired in around two thousand. Mom was in the banking industry for several banks here in town and. So I was born here, general raised here went through lack of public school system when I graduated high in nineteen, ninety, two went to naval cabinet, young was seventeen years old, and yes, so graduated Annapolis went on to graduate school. Serve my time, the navy and then I started. My company around two thousand and Two thousand two with him. We had kind of a resurrection and reforming in two, thousand and four. Ocean called trust them, and we formed trust at in two thousand in four. I moved back to Lafayette in. Two thousand five. As I've been here since. What was it your military teary service is? Incredible. If, you can touch on that. How that molded you as a young man? I mean for me. It's kind of everything was the genesis of who I am today it. Does a lot for young men and women to take them from being just high school knucklehead kids to. You know being competent enough to lead. Sailors and Marines in the fleet in just four years of. Leadership Laboratory but is also an excellent engineering school. I chose go the ocean engineering route which. Really set me up professionally because I'm actually one of those people actually works in the field that he studied in college. It's. Yeah I I have my whole career I did it while I was in the navy, and then since then I've been able to build a company that does ocean engineering services? And but for me, the military was everything it really turned me from like I, said a kid to a young man at I think it was twenty three years old, leading troops in Bosnia. Was a real contingency, real bullets, and just being young and having that much responsibility. For responsible for all the equipment we had. They're all the weapon systems ammunition. Leading convoys just at such a young age twenty three years old. I remember because I had turned twenty four while was there. In being there for special long time. Probably about a seven month deployment for me at the time ahead had. One. My daughter, who's now twenty re. Basically learning how to walk so. It was just A. It was a tough time. For me as a young man as a father, but it also taught me quite a bit. Gave me the courage and competence to do just about anything at at that point. I realize it. If I can do that. I, could graduate Annapolis if I, could lead troops than of pretty much muffin again do. It takes away that. Mr Aunt. So you, dive officer, but you're saying you're also around the ground leading. Brave score. The ABC's our construction battalions, and there at the time their aid active duty construction Tian's. Their mission is basically combat construction primarily support the Marine Corps so Mike I Tour essentially in the Navy was with CB unit at Gulfport in MC be one thirty three and. It was there. I learned all Aboud CB. Combat Warfare. Had elite troops especially in contingency timeframes, also civil construction CBS mission is basically to build. Build fortifications bill that things that we need in wartime runways of repair Rayo heads. They're taking down fortifications. VACATIONS OCCASIONS and being able to do that in an environment where you know one minute, you could be on a bulldozer or leading some construction effort in the next. You may actually defending the. Area that you're working on. A window. When you were out of the service I guess in in two thousand two. What prompted you to become an entrepreneur what led to this decision for me? Always been driven to do. You know just Kinda do more One of my personal reasons for leaving the navy. Was that Typically in the military so long as performing well, you can look on a chart or no, that in X. amount of years you're going to be a certain rank, and you're going to be making a certain amount of money, and you're gonNA have a certain type of lifestyle and for me. All of that's wonderful, and it's a great career for a Lotta people for me on and more I didn't really want to be limited by My rank or my seniority within the Navy I wanted to be able to basically perform to my own ability, whether that's good or bad have no limits upon what it was I wanted to do. One of the green things about owning my own businesses it. Mean we're primarily ocean engineering company. We do ocean engineer, services, but. If I wanted to vote. Develop a medical device I can. I can really do anything that I want to do, and I wanted that freedom you know within the realm of financial in fiscal responsibility and everything. I wanted to be able to do what it was.

"How's everyone doing this week? I'm really excited for my guest today because because joining us is Dr Doug Tally now. I know many of you will be familiar with that name but for those that aren't doctor. Telling me is the author of one of the greatest books about native gardening bringing nature home. That book completely changed the course of my career and in many ways the way I view the natural world. It's really important to understand the link between native plants and healthy ecosystems and in bringing nature home. He has done that in a wonderfully eloquent and easy to understand way. It is really great to know that a scientist especially especially in a columnist like Dr Tally values. Communication has done such a great job. Getting all of this information to the general public and in a way changed a lot of the conversations conversations that are happening out there while he's here today to talk about his latest book. It's called nature's best hope a new approach to conservation that starts in your yard and it is a great message. You know I pick up a lot of natural history books and I honestly I have a hard time reading them. I know things are bad and most of those books are just reporting more doom and gloom but a nature's best hope we're getting a a lot of solutions a lot of actions that every person no matter where you live no matter what your socioeconomic status can do to help nature in and around their space. This is really a story of indulgence rather than sacrifice. And I think that's something. The Native Plant Movement can do for people you can indulge yourself with lavish gardens and help hope nature at the same time but all of it really comes down to just limiting the amount of lawn we have in this country. We have an obsession with the lawn. I mean go post about lawns somewhere on the Internet in and watch the people that jump on you jump down your throat and really. It's it's interesting. People have a hard time really making that link between health. Ecology is and what we're doing with the spaces around where we live and lawns at the center of that. So the more native plants we can get out there the better and that's really what our discussion is about today. So I don't WanNa keep you from that without further ado we do. Here is my conversation with Dr Doug Ptolemy I hope you enjoy Dr Doug.

"Cross at University of Minnesota ideally okay and then after that I mean how does how does a Minnesotan make it out to Arizona because it's where you're practicing now right that's right so you're not a Minnesota South Dakota right yeah so if I were to give you my hometown I'd say Rockford Illinois at College in South Dakota Okay Okay so mid-western Midwestern so after dental or after grasp program I worked at dental specialist Minnesota so it was a great opportunity there's another process down there then thing oral surgeon did on the whole specially crew you know so it was great have that information right at my fingertips for somebody who is being able to to refer within gosh that's great and as you probably know in Minnesota they have snow rain and you get the Big Three foot drifts on your roof yeah this thing called an ice dam melts underneath and then the water's going into the wounded tap me on the shoulder and try to scrape it off and it's going down the back of my Jack and the like okay I got I got choice to me that's exactly right but you know when he came out there is there's a ton of people from Minnesota people there are people this is the most midwest feeling area there is you know we've had enough so they go to Arizona got a lot of patients that spend more time in Arizona and they do in Michigan Yeah right right so it's been great out here okay came out in two thousand six okay hard to practice out here and there are a lot it's a pretty popular spot for us to come right is kind of the native environment for dentists this is it's it's you know I mean probably I like California or you know other places but you know a lot dennis practice here a lot of people want to come here because of the weather what have you sure there are two dental schools down here so I mean it's a place that people want to be and what I realize is I got to know people when I was in Minnesota going through going through the press program people would refer to me because they knew me during that come on here nobody knows who I am I had to start from scratch journey get the word out and try to generate that referral me no case Arizona has a I mean do you start from scratch when you're a specialist in Arizona like did you know anyone to start with or was it just kind of you open up the urge with someone would have bought a practice three Years old at the time no gentleman I bought it from actually went back to school to be an orthodontist he started from scratch so at three years old is still kind of scratch start because the now it's a different person yeah but at least ahead of foothold right I got I had people that I could at least talk to and get to know a little bit sure essentially it's going out there trying to get past the front desk and he can have lunch the doctor I mean that's that's really what it is so there's some good days and not so fun days you know that Kinda thing but it's just a matter of just being persistent getting out there and getting to know people kind of a little side side note question I know the evaluation of some specialty practices are a little bit different in Indiana being a little bit different woods what's the scope of how how are you a prosthetic practice out there is much more like a general practice or you'll have to give specifics but it's like a general practice but this is kind of the interesting thing that I'm learning is when I was going through my process program there is kind of a thought that was ingrained in my mind that if you had a hygienist you weren't a real process the totally yes yeah but if you don't have a hygiene recall system you don't really have to practice it so I didn't as an hygiene recall system in the practice I bought I mean it's all based on that person so how does that transfer it doesn't really transfer the same as a gentle dental progressing better than than in in cases from the old guy because you don't have anything but cases from the old guy right I didn't I didn't even realize that was the thing because most prosthetic practices that I've dealt with have had a hygienist and function like a highly functioning I general practice and I think that's a model that has to continue to work you know especially if we want to transfer are you down the road for selling across practice specifically I mean I wonder how they ended onic practices do at that kind of thing I mean obviously there's an emergency you know pain kind of deal that could the people come in and and and do work right away but there's more of a relationship aspect across fairness I think that's important hem what percentage of obviously ended on the the problem with evaluation ended onic practices lots of one off it's one off patient and you'll never see them again what percentage of a prosthetic practiser kind of one off one things well okay so in Arizona maybe more okay we'll see Fifteen twenty percent and that's going to be somebody that's coming from Michigan or Minnesota they come down here in the wintertime Fix this for me or you know can you help me out with this patient coming back you know so I get a few one offs like that but everything else it's all relationship I mean I've known these people for a long time if something happens then you know they send their family and that kind of thing so I mean it's relationship based yeah just part of my curiosity is just know your urine a practice mid-2000s in your year I'm curious how how your connection with spears started like like being that that's kind of why we're all here and everything like that so how how did that happen so when we're going through our presence program we would go to the American college oppress beating in the in the fixed press meeting Chicago and I saw frank speak just he saw this lecture on you know donat versus restored industrial how do you make this decision he had decision tree and everything like that and Minnesota we didn't do anything with the Ortho tried as a whole they don't exist but it just opened my mind I mean this one hour lecture just as like a mind blow to me so I'm like I want I need to learn from this guy right so when I was able to do it I went to all the hotels seminars and that kinda thing and actually had a wheat a year and a half to get into the facially geriatrician planning workshop in in Seattle right so greg was up there and I think it was kind of a neat experience really in their office right in their office and while I was in there they're going to move everything down to Scottsdale and I'm like did you say Scottsdale Arizona's so so then they had this thing where you could sign up to be a visiting faculty member or part of the Faculty club Yeah and the idea being you know you could take the purses but you also mentor the courses so I hear people get to take it as quite often repetitions deal yeah for learning is what they say at the time I was studying for my board exam and so you know everything that Frank Head with his preferences and everything it just can't fit you know seamlessly with that idea no brainer really to sign up for that and I've really enjoyed that experience gotten to know a lot of people over the years as a result so mentoring for awhile and then all of a sudden got to be a part of the restoring the dench arch workshops develop that there and we've been refining that really since two thousand fifteen to so just a callback to guarantee a couple of weeks ago I was saying not so nice things about the University of Minnesota Press program he said Hey I know some people welcome to the people that smile exactly but I mean okay I love this because so so you actually you prove to me that that someone from my background can actually do this we tame school I mean it's it's so funny so you guys developed this course tells I mean you know that General Dennis particularly restored does in general got a Lotta great denture experienced dental school and in the younger they are now we have a lot of younger listeners maybe got almost no background in a dentist's arches oh you're you're filling a lot of blanks with with this course tell us a little bit about that yeah right so I mean I think about Gary would he said he made seventeen dentures while he's in dental school right and I I got to teach the dental school here some of the students don't even get to actually make denture watch watch it happen yeah so Darren I got together I mean we're we're trying to be very dishes with the three days that we have and we were going from Ada Z.. Anything that you can do to treating dentists patient in that time period and so of course where do we start we start with dentures right off and sometimes that's a turn off right talk about dentures kind of brings up that emotion emotion he can't use that frontal lobe think through any of this stuff and kind of freaking out right now just thinking about it but we start off when we show a case where we had a minute if you don't know where to put the teeth how are you gonNa plan this right you know somebody wants to come in and they want to spend money implants like I think what you really gotTa know where that heath go and how it fits in the face and saw frank really took a lot of information from facially generated true and planning from the enter world and we're taking it back and saying hey wait a minute here this really fits for somebody that is handicapped right they're having trouble in a social situation or they can't go to rest order off a menu right how do we help these people how do we how do we bring this into our practice so that we can provide a service like that so we go through the denture part of it and oh through over denture part with implants when we start with the locators I've everybody has some kind of connection with locations yeah but the the great thing is that with any attachment system there's unripe before me right and he has he's part of this paper the Lt our concept tooth ridged and we're using things like that we have three different ways of saying hey check this out the patient this might help you decide which option to go with it's not always on for speaks we try to make that point and we have our hands on exercises that we do to help with the pain points so to speak tell me a little bit what are the hands on exercise in this course I gotTa tell you right now I'm pretty sold on the idea of this core because I'm more I would not have this would not have been like on my top list maybe but you're you're sucking me in Doug then kind of thinking what tells about the hands on stuff trait so one of the things that comes up you have a real patient in the chair and you're having a real conversation how do you talk to them about whether implants are possible because that's the minute you WanNa grab that right so we do a lot of things in the analog world that you can translate into the digital world so the I exercise is to convert the denture into a model that you can do a space analysis right there on the spot and say okay yeah we can do implants but we it takes some blown away over here we might have to add some bone over here or we have to do something with your lip support rate here because we're we we see a problem right now so when you when you're talking about I guess I hate to say it but it's a big ticket item this is an expensive kind of a deal for implant related restore sturdier treatment somehow but people think us like they can go down the street and get similar solution right but if you can help them have a meaningful discussion at that point in time what's involved with their mouth then it's like okay pollen yeah let's let's see what else is it's that hands on first part how do we figure out if we have enough space that's exercise number one we work on cooperating locator attachments ensure denture that seems like it's pretty easy to do but we always have a lot of fun talking with that and coming up with some challenging parts of that experience for me on that exactly it's I've been there so yeah we Verification Jigs whether it's an implant supported or implant par- you know how do we connect the implant together how does this work with an implant versus as or cornea tiebreaker right how how much accuracy do we need and why why do we do this when do we do this. That kind of thing we converted denture into immediate hybrid it's so cool hands out that's that's great that's great I love that and we try to relate that like okay we have some.

Jason What do you what do you think about identity arches are you huge fan of restored commercialist arches love dentures hot if I could have whole damped interest is telling is telling Doug is telling Doug that in our facebook group the dental annexation it's like the if there's one thing that we all agree on assume we ate dentures honestly feel like because it's like I think a lot of people didn't get great background in dental school especially if they're younger and so in this is what you teach essentially is that right that's right that's right I mean Dan dentures are really how I got into dentistry I replied to an ad for a job while as a school to sweep the floor of the media lab somebody quit and they're like here let me show you some of the steps to make a denture work a little too they put Interesting okay I will actually prefaces for a little bit of a story I was I was taking the add master track at my local dental school and within that you get a lot of classes that you probably normally wouldn't seek out turn in one of the classes was a removable course and I still hearken back to that and how valuable that was you know you your dentist mind you wouldn't look at gotta gotTa have that so but I do the go back and see the extreme value going back and learning those skills right I mean there's are all over again there's a reason they teach that I still school but there's a problem with as we don't have any information listen to draw from to you've been talking about the lack of context that dental schools have to deal with for for months now just because but I very interested to know that like you are literally a high school kid working at a dental lab how soon before they had you do in dental stuff I'll say three months so you were a high school student working on my God so does that was my first job uh-huh oh that's Hilarious oh my gosh so what does this how does a sixteen year old like the handle that that's amazing to me my dad when I was in college and I kind of He's a dentist I sort of knew that that I would be pretty interesting dental school he showed me how to poor model that was when I got to dental school that was my one one thing he had really showed me and probably didn't do I still don't do very well to be honest but I'm trying to mention what a sixteen year old learns at a Denture Lamp seizing yeah right so of course they hit me clean the plaster trap and all the things no one wants to do but then it's like boiling out a denture flask right and so that's not really mcleese sensitive or anything like that but you gotta be careful when you start to realize if you lose some of the teeth ethic that that's the problem right because you're starting over that point right but then you learn okay now let's let's flask this up you know you know what the flash does you know how that that's important in here's how you pour the plaster in the flask and the different layers and things which is kind of builds from there and I can kind of learned that way we all learned that way one-step next the it's the way it's the way every dental students should learn because on some level I remember in dental school like it is it's the constant problem of not having a context if you don't know okay I didn't know anything about dentures so I certainly didn't know about how they make dentures because I know anything about dentures but at some point you had to figure how did they get these teeth into that plastic shape now in wrinkly that's dental school everything about that and so like having that background going in it's like you were destined to be honest at that point if you went to dental work in dental lab that long guaranteed right that was my focus going into the school I wanted to be a process I mean how many people can kind of tell where I am on the weird skip they wouldn't have mentioned that but you know it's kind of a problem with spear a lot of those processes around you just gotTa know that all the acrylic over the years reason withdrawn to that okay so you're a high school student you're learning you're learning the dental lab field and you decide okay going dental school where where'd you go to School University of Minnesota well South Dakota first and then the University of Minnesota University of Minnesota he really nineteen ninety seven ninety nine okay okay and so how the hell did I miss you I know it's crazy because you were in clinic I was in preeminent did you did you do your prosperous and see there I did yeah so we know a lot of people we know a lot of people that's crazy sleeves yeah that's right that's okay so I mean I've said a lot of bad things about the process department at the University of Minnesota interesting what's what's really funny about it though is that I suffered from the same thing that you did though or you're talking about I didn't have a context so the same things that you knew exactly how to that's amazing to me Oh wow that is so cool okay so you went in wanting to be a process which is very rare which is very even know what was that when you went in knowing that you wanted to do yeah and I would say at the time probably once every three years somebody from dental school at Minnesota went into process I mean it wasn't very common notre yeah that's right did you have any experience with the processed or somebody I got to teach or not teach I worked in a press NAS lab afterward pay While I was in dental school and I did lab work for him so that kind of brought my level upshur again were you knew the new law the right people at their point kind of on the inside I was looking for these people to be mentors essentially right yeah trying to see if that would work and to be honest with you I wasn't exactly excited about process after seeing you know what I saw and then I work with a general dentist after that and that's when I was really like well wait a minute I really do like the stuff that the lab party the goal you know we did a lot of goal work and so whatever eh that's kind of gone by the wayside but yeah what was the watershed moment that made you made you switch the that that you weren't excited to them that you were right so it's you know what you're going through this process remember that I enter you make in dental school right and and I just remember the guy's eyes lighting up because you know we gave him that hope you know it's very visible personal body right now and you give them that ability to have facial expression back given that lip support back and it's just things that he was missing he didn't really realized that he's GonNa Teeth for a long time you know it's like you know what this is really a handicap you know and I really want to help people get through this so that they can make it so even even denture obviously that's not like natural teeth obviously we have implants that we can work with I mean a huge benefit there that the denture made such big difference for this guy really kind of stuck with my heart they did they do special process when you were there in other words it was the first clinical experience I had at Minnesota's second year where they would put you the teeny with another dental student and you get one denture patient and work on them and so they did do they were doing that like that was your first clinical experience that's say as much as I struggled with dentures dental school that experience was quite good because the patient was the sweetest Guy Right in here I mean those bunch some you know some of they come from all over the place twin cities and and there is something to Minnesota Nice and it's like these are really nice people I remember one guy very angry that's probably I had some I had some struggles to but I remember I remember one point remember when they used to tell you that is a really bad tasting mouthwash it was red and it's called it's called the Boris guys wanted you to have them rents I think it was because it was like all I gave this to a guy who was upper upper over lower partial and he told me you have to rinse with this and I went to start mixing remedy I went back he didn't understand he thought he's supposed to drink it oh forces not good stuff no he choked it down and just like a champion like okay. I'm ready doc I'm like Oh my God I'm so what even say with that that gives you an idea of my my acumen with prosthetics let's get pretty quickly which back out on the streets the X. I'm sorry so I do remember is as much as I struggle with a lot of that stuff because because you thrive in donaldson sounds like if you were meeting I kinda just survived so it is interesting to note that it's there if you know where to look for and if you're if you're if you got the mindset having the last background probably had to help a lot yeah setting teeth for my classmates yeah looking for but it gave me more experience it helped me learn what was happening and what shouldn't do what worked you know like I think so yeah thankful for that yeah definitely Oh that's a trip man I just I don't run into very many Minnesota grads that they can they can check me whether I'm lying there let's anyhow so you went to.

Stroke significantly increases the risk of dementia
"Some study out this week suggests that aspirins don't reduce the. Risk of a first heart attack what the hell, we've been told for years decades take an aspirin because, it'll help. You not only after but before so why. Now the change is no. Change, this is a. Little confusing again grabbing headlines. Reading the newspaper can be confusing so let me untangle this There's what we call in cardiology primary prevention, versus secondary prevention not to get deep into the weeds but you have to, break, it down whether we're. Trying to prevent the first heart attack and stroke or the second or more heart attack and stroke and we know without any doubt if you've already had a heart attack. Or stroke that, taking just a low dose of baby eighty one milligram single dose. Of aspirin per day prevents the second heart attack or stroke that's where there's no controversy but where there has been controversy is. Whether it's helpful to take daily aspirin to prevent, the first episode the first stroke the first heart attack, and that's. What this particular report in Munich Germany the. European society of cardiology this. Week, reporting on on. Primary prevention preventing the first. But things have changed since Decades ago when we first started talking about this because now so. Many people even though you don't particularly. A fan of them are on statins. So so many people who have yet to have their first heart attack or stroke are on statin, drugs and statin drugs are remarkably effective at preventing the first heart attack or stroke and I think, the reason why they didn't see a lot of. Benefit in this study was because, so many of the patients are already on statins and that's why results change because you dealing with people people change and what we do for, them changes and the other important thing. Is you have to look. At individuals you have to deal with this not in the whole population goes in the whole population the. Risk of the, baby aspirin and there, is some of bleeding in the stomach or, intestines, outweighed the benefit of primary prevention but, that's looking at the whole population your medicine, is personal deals with one Doctor and one, patient so you have to individualize this so you have to look at each person so someone. Like you who doesn't have a lot. Of risk factors for for heart disease You know, we might not, use that, aspirin to prevent the, first one. Although you're, not on, a statin so, they asked me figured and also but the person, who has, a ton of risk factors high blood pressure high cholesterol. A lot, of stress they're obese they're smokers family history their high. Cholesterol and they haven't had a heart attack and they you know they may even have some coronary disease or maybe not but nevertheless they have all. These risk factors and that's what's important. I may want to put that person on a single, baby and very carefully watched their GI tract because that's the person. Who will get some
