The Secrets to Finding a Passion in Dentistry – IC036
1:02:55Dr. Karl Walker-Finch shares his journey of pain to passion as he reveals the secrets to finding YOUR passion in Dentistry. We started by discussing our crippling imposter syndrome as we left public Dentistry to practice privately. Along that theme we highlight the importance of taking control of your own destiny. Karl's new book, 'In The Loupe' raises money for Confidental (emotional first aid for Dentists) and is a powerful book for Dentists that wish to practise without fear and establish the right work-life balance. https://youtu.be/YPv71yr62tE Check out this full episode on YouTube Download Protrusive App on iOS and Android and Claim your Verifiable CPD/CE by answering a few questions + You can get EARLY ACCESS to the episode + EXCLUSIVE content “We do not need thousands of specialists in full mouth rehabilitation” - Dr. Karl Walker-Finch Highlights of this episode: 3:12 Dr.Karl Walker-Finch's introduction5:48 Experiencing Imposter Syndrome11:40 Private Practice vs Public Practice16:31 Finding Passion - Ideal work for dentists20:59 Top tips to help dentists find their 'whys' - Dr. Karl’s pathway before niching down29:34 Taking control of our own destiny39:32 Implementing the power of atomic habits in Dentistry44:12 Dr. Karl supporting 'Confidental' - helping dentists with their mental health You can now grab a copy of In The Loupe: The Secrets to Finding a Passion in Dentistry by Dr. Karl Walker-Finch!

Hence why the name of this episode. Now, some of the other titles that are also considered were GDPs, just Want to Have Fun. Jaz's Introduction:And the other one that describes this episode really well, which I almost considered was Fall in Love with Dentistry all over again. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and I'm the host of Protrusive Dental Podcast. This is a non-clinical interruption. We call this an Interference Cast. If it's your first time listening, thanks for joining me. I appreciate it. It's a whole three or four years worth of content that you need to explore, but if you are a regular listener, thanks for joining us again. This episode is a bigger picture episode. This episode is kind of like a feel good and an emotional exploration of your why and your purpose in your life and in your career. Some of the themes that we cover are things like imposter syndrome, my goodness. So I do get imposter syndrome less now than I used to, but when I get it, I get it in a big way. So we'll talk about how Karl experience is and how we both overcome that. We also talk about our journeys in moving to private density and how we actually felt bad about leaving the public health dentistry and what that kind of looked like. Our little roadmap. The other thing we discuss is how we both want to, we're both on a mission, Karl and I to infect you guys, you listening right now with enough positivity that you can head into work with excitement. In fact, the thing I love about protrusive and what it's become and you guys is the messages I get are kind of like in this vein here. I'm just going to read a message out to you from, oh, hey, it's Dr. Albert, Albert, thanks so much, for freeing a listener. You sent a really lovely message. He said lots of nice things and I'll cut to chase. He said, I've been practicing for seven years and have been stuck in a lot of routine, mundane mindsets that have been holding me back. And watching PDP episodes on YouTube has gotten me so excited about all sorts of new things. Thank you again, and please keep up the great work. So, these messages, which I get saying about how you're feeling more positive towards sensory,
A Little Trick to Solve Anterior Open Bites after Occlusal Appliances – AJ003
41:17I will reveal a little 'trick' that might 'recapture the bite' on a patient who develops an anterior open bite (AOB) after wearing a nightguard/splint/occlusal appliance. There is a degree of risk and uncertainty when we prescribe occusal appliances as it hinges on patient compliance and factors that are out of our control. There are certain risks that come with treatment that we should consent for, and this includes bite changes. Occlusal appliances are not an exact science - the evidence base is not high quality. That does not mean they do not work, it just means that we need more data! We don't even know the mechanism of HOW occlusal splints work as that is yet to be proven. Hello Protruserati! Welcome back to the third episode of #AskJaz where I answered three main questions from our Protrusive Dental Community - 1) developing anterior open bite after an occlusal appliance, 2) how to scan/bite register at a desired OVD, and 3) what should the occlusion look like on composite veneers or edge bonding? https://youtu.be/Li2W-ysYRIE Check out this full episode on YouTube Download Protrusive App on iOS and Android and Claim your Verifiable CPD/CE by answering a few questions + You can get EARLY ACCESS to the episode + EXCLUSIVE content Dr. Mahmoud Ibrahim and I are currently working on a huge project called OBAB, Occlusion Basics, and Beyond – it will be the best occlusion resource in the Milky Way…and that’s our mission! We want to finally demystify Occlusion and make it Tangible AF! Join the waiting list HERE! Highlights of this episode: 1:51 Risk of having AOB after an Occlusal Appliance15:48 Trick to recover an AOB that has developed26:49 Bite Records for Stabilisation Splints30:25 Checking the Occlusion after Composite Veneers37:02 Occlusion Basics and Beyond Do join our Protrusive Dental Community Facebook Group.

Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: Occlusal appliances can be scary things. When we are given to our patients, we're at the mercy of their compliance. We don't really know if they're going to get along with it or not. [Jaz]We don't really know if it'll help their pain. If pain is the reason that we are prescribing in occlusal appliance, and a lot of times we are taking on a bit of risk because there are certain bite changes that can happen after occlusal appliances. And despite what you think, you know, you might think, oh yes, anterior only appliances, they're the big culprits here. They're the ones, those shifty devices, they're the ones causing all the bite changes. But actually, you can get a bite changer. A patient can get a bite change from any type of occlusal appliance. So, I see this quite frequently on the Facebook groups from dentists and also lots of dentists message me and share some of the cases where they've had some bite change. They're trying to get their head around what exactly happened. So, in this Ask Jaz episode, I'm going to cover three main themes. The main, the big one. The first one is, a patient who develops an anterior open bite after an occlusal appliance, and I'm going to teach you a trick that you can use if this happened to your patient to recover their bite. Okay? So that's number one. Number two and three, a shorter one. The second one is how to scan or record using silicon bite registration paste, the patient's centric relation record at the desired vertical dimension for something like a Michigan splint, for example, and the third one. What should the occlusion look like on composite veneers? These are three questions, or the last two are questions that were sent in by you guys. The first one's something I promised Professor Paul Tipton, that I would do,

But it's actually taken off hugely for the management of white spot lesions anteriorly. I've been using icon resin infiltration for a few years now, and I've had some pretty good results. Jaz's Introduction:And so this stuff, this resin that infiltrates into these white patches, like our guest Linda Greenwell, the way she beautifully describes it with her soothing voice is that the white patch is like an air bubble, and she explains that analogy wonderfully throughout this episode. And it seems to be a really great, minimally invasive way to manage white patches, either after orthotics or MIH or of any origin. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to another episode of the Protrusive Dental Podcast. That's right. We got Linda Greenwell back again after that amazing episode about the rules around whitening for under 18. If you haven't seen that, do check it out because it does tie in well with this episode because one of the things that Linda will teach us is the importance of tooth whitening before doing resin infiltration. In fact, Linda leaves no stone unturned. Every single micro step and the nuances and considerations, and even the troubleshooting. What if things don't go to plan? It's covered so comprehensively, so beautifully that I think DMG, the company that makes the stuff will probably host this podcast episode on their own website. We also answer burning real world questions such as, do you have to use rubber dam for this technique? And can you use any composite, like sometimes you actually have to have composite at the end of it.
Best Practices in Social Media for Dentists – How to Stay Out of Trouble Yet Be Impactful – IC035
42:02'Doing' Social Media is HARD work!' Do you find it difficult to make time for this? Do you worry about professionalism and ethics on social media? How about the blurred boundaries between professional and personal life? Dentistry is no exception to the trend of using social media in today's culture. Dentists are using social media to connect with their patients and create new opportunities for patient education. However, dentists face ethical challenges such as how to best communicate with patients online, and what is the best level of consent to get from patients when we post their photos and videos? In this episode, Dr. Alessandro Devigus also suggests how to use social media as a business tool and how to keep your personal life and professional life separate. https://youtu.be/TEBmlDlybLE Check out this full episode here Download Protrusive App on iOS and Android and Claim your Verifiable CPD/CE by answering a few questions + You can get EARLY ACCESS to the episode + EXCLUSIVE content “React and interact with your audience how they WANT you to see” - Dr. Alessandro Devigus Need to Read it?

If you're listening to this, I'm sure you're involved in social media in some way or another. Jaz's Introduction:It's NO EXCEPTION for dentistry, but this creates new problems and dilemmas, new ethical dilemmas for us dentists. How do we best communicate with patients online, and what is the best level of consent to get to patients when we are posting their photos and videos? And where exactly do you DRAW THE LINE between PERSONAL and PROFESSIONAL? These are the burning questions we cover with Dr. Alessandro Devigus, who not only has a huge following on social media, but he's such a level-headed guy as an extremely experienced, successful clinician. One of the topics we discussed, which you may resonate with Protruserati is HOW to MAKE TIME for SOCIAL MEDIA. Many of you are struggling to find the opportunity throughout your busy lives to actually have a presence online. And so when I ask this to Alessandro, he had a really good answer, and it involves doing a bit of work, a bit of an audit of your time. So that's something we cover towards the middle and end of the episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. Welcome back to an Interference Cast. This is like a nonclinical interruption.

These are some of the things that have become quite an area of interest in dentistry and for all the right reasons, because as dentists, we're in such a brilliant position to SCREEN for AIRWAY ISSUES beyond just snoring. Like we don't wanna just treat snoring. Jaz's Introduction:We want to ADD YEARS to our patient's lives. And if we can diagnose or we can't diagnose, but we can screen for sleep apnea and airway issues and get the patients the help, and then we can be involved in potential therapy such as removal appliances to bring the mandible forward and that way we can have a huge impact in someone's life. I was always taught that the two times you can save someone's life dentistry is A) if you detect or diagnose a mouth cancer, or B) a barrett esophagus or someone's got acid reflux and for them to get investigated and have a camera to explore that area. However, I think a third one that wasn't mentioned to me in dental school, but definitely should be there is sleep disorder breathing or sleep apnea because on average that can take 10 years off of your life expectancy. And in case you think that sleep apnea is a disease of the fat old man, you are totally mistaken. So whether it's in children or in adults, this episode with Dr. Aditi Desai, who's just the most incredibly passionate woman ever on this topic, it's gonna open your mind.

Is Caries Detector Dye BS? – PDP138
45:09Some dentists disagree with the use of Caries Detector Dye in Restorative dentistry. They say that they are experienced enough to know what is infected dentine and affected dentin. However, this episode might change your perspective— CCD can be an incredibly useful tool to provide objective data and increase your bond strengths! In this episode, Dr. Germán Dorgan spoke to us about caries detection dye and helped us understand how to use it properly.

Measure 5mm from the cusp tip and 3mm from the adjacent marginal ridge - do not remove caries beyond this point. As a guide, this will help you not expose the pulp so you achieve very clean dentine for highest bond strengths, without worrying about 'when to stop'.

Jaz's Introduction:Is there actually any sign or useful applications because caries, as some colleagues would say, I just use my high magnification, my good lighting and my probe. I don't need a fancy dye to tell me if I got caries or not. I'm experienced enough to know that I've removed caries. Now, you know what? I kind of felt that way. I was like, do I really need a dye? I'm think I'm pretty good at moving caries and too fair. Since I've been using it, it's kind of confirmed that I'm pretty good at removing caries. Okay. I'm happy to say that I'm proud enough to say that. However, one in five, one in six times I see a pink haze where it shouldn't be. You'll find out what that pink haze means in this episode, but it's really useful objective data. So we'll speak to Dr. Germán Dorgan, all about caries deck to die, how to actually use it properly.

Hygienists are NOT Scaling Machines – IC034
48:23Hygienists working without nurses and feeling like scaling machines - it's about time we covered this elephant in the dental surgery. I brought on my dear friends and exceptional hygienists Morgan Williams and Louise Brake - they have faced career struggles in the past in the quest to finding the right environment and have so much to share with us. The biggest takeaway of this episode will be to consider 'leading from the bottom' - if you are feeling stuck and don't just wait around for good luck (I'm such a poet!) - take action.

If you enjoyed this episode, you may also like another episode with Laura Bailey: Why You Need to Take Massive Action for Success in Dentistry Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: What's the best way that hygienists and dentists can work together? Well, when I was in Singapore, I didn't know a single hygienist. It wasn't really a model at the time that was used there. Jaz's introduction:Whereas in the UK, we depend so much on our hygienists. I feel like we work together well with hygienists. However, I sometimes worry and hygienists I speak to worry that all they become is a SCALING MACHINE. And so, I talked about that today with Morgan and Lou. Two lovely hygienists I use to work with in Oxford and they share their struggles, how they had to work in quite a few practices where the environment just WASN'T RIGHT FOR THEM to thrive in as part of prevention minded hygienists. And I think what they have to say, well, if you're a hygienist, listen to this. Or maybe a dentist has said this episode to you, then this is gonna be a real source of inspiration from two lovely ladies who've been in the game for a little while. They know what they want and they're gonna tackle those difficult themes such as HYGIENISTS working WITHOUT NURSES like. Where does that stand now in 2023? My practice now where I work as an associate, only now is it starting to really implement a nurse working with a hygienist. Whereas I've worked with a few practices for where there is no such thing. It's unheard of for the hygienist to have nursing support and I know lots of young hygienists who tell me that they feel really uneasy about working alone and really, is this the best way to deliver ideal patient journey that's safe and effective? I don't think so. But then again, a lot of you will say, 'But Jaz, you are not a practice owner. You are not paying the bills.' And I totally get that. I respect that. As an associate, it's easy for me to say that, but I'm hoping after this episode with Morgan and Lou, though, you understand why it is so important for our profession to work together with hygienists to get the best outcomes, and I do believe that starts with a hygienist being provided a nurse. Now, what I don't want after this episode is lots of hygienists handing their notice or dentist getting pissed off and saying, 'Jaz, what the hell do you do? Why did you encourage my hygienist to think a little bit differently and inspire him or her a little bit too much?' I mean, I want to inspire. I want to get the word out. I want to help these hygienists through Morgan and Lou and what they have to say in learning from their journeys.

What I was wearing is just like, really emphatic advice to me at the time. It's just stuck with me throughout my career, and it's not too different to the advice that Finlay Sutton gave. A few episodes ago. If you scroll down and listen to that episode about Scandinavian Design of Partial Dentures, and he said to find a technician who's a similar age as you, who's got a similar appetite for dentistry as you do and grow together. Hello Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to another episode of Protrusive Dental Podcast. This time, it was actually a rare face-to-face episode that I recorded. I drove over a hundred miles to see Graham, my technician, and the theme was to answer your questions that you'd sent on the Facebook group, everything you wanted to know from a technician. But NEVER ASKED. We covered things like digital versus analogue. Is digital there yet? Should we be opening contacts for veneers? Heck do technicians like it when we open the contacts for veneers?

Are there any concerns about giving this to your patients or maybe sometimes the doctor, the general practitioner has given this to your patients? Jaz’s Introduction:And what about deciding whether inhalation station, AKA gas and air versus intravenous sedation is best for your patient, and what is the correct path you have to take to be able to safely provide sedation in practice? These are all the questions we'll be covering in today's episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to your favorite dental podcast. It's not often we do an episode on sedation. It's quite a niche thing, but it complements some of the previous episodes we've done such as the one about hypnosis with Mike Gow. You have to listen to that one. And Mike and Roy, today's guests are actually really good friends, and it makes total sense. You know, Roy was a fantastic calm communicator. I would feel very safe in his hands as a patient. And that's what we all want. We all want our patients to feel safe around us, and that come from how we communicate to our patients. So, before we start on this episode about sedation, all those things that I just discussed, let's get to the Protrusive Dental Pearl. Protrusive Dental Pearl:So, if you're new to the podcast, every main episode, every PDP episode, I will share a Protrusive Dental Pearl. One tip that you can apply straight away. And this one is about communication. I very often like to do well communication one and this is not because I am some sort of master of communication. This is far from it. This is just something that I've been very much in tune with myself. I try to reflect on my communication skills and try to improve, and I try to look at other clinicians when I shadow them or when I see them in practice.

'Hey, Jaz, I'm starting to make this venture into digital dentistry.' And it's overwhelming, right? Jaz's Introduction:There's so much out there in terms of different types of scanners, different requirements, so which is the best scanner? Which is the most appropriate scanner for your clinic and your requirements? Well, that's exactly what we're covering today with Dr. Gulshan Murgai. If you haven't listened already to IC027, it was his story that we covered and it's titled, 'He got Sued and he won.' So essentially, it's his entire legal case how it led to that. And we learned so many different medical legal lessons and it was just great to hear about his triumph. So, if you haven't listened to that, please do listen to that. But if you've clicked on, because of the title of digital dentistry in which scanner to buy, there's so much meat in here because Gulshan has tested and tried all these scanners, and now he's gonna summarize for you which scanner he thinks is the best and why that might change depending on your needs and the needs of your practice. Now, Gulshan doesn't keep it a secret or hide it or anything. He has got some financial interest in a digital scanning company. But I still think there's so much of meat in terms of gaining the knowledge to know what are the differences in the different scanners and how you can choose which scanner to invest in. Let's join Dr. Gulshan. I'll catch you in the outro. Main Episode:Dr. Gulshan Murgai, after that really enlightening episode about how you triumphantly won the case and so many lessons shared. Welcome back to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. This group function today is to answer one burning question, and I've seen you lectured before. I know you're super passionate about digital dentistry. For those people who haven't listened to that episode yet, just introduce yourself again and why you are so involved with digital dentistry why you are so passionate about digital dentistry.
