    Stay away from TMD! [SPLINTEMBER] – PDP039

    Stay away from TMD! [SPLINTEMBER] – PDP039

    Why do some patients have painful joints, whereas others get headaches?







    And why do MOST of our parafunctional patients not get any symptoms at all?







    Why do some peoples teeth wear away, whilst others teeth are riddled in cracks?









    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amdss07uN9s









    In this episode, I talk about the pros and cons of devoting your career in Dentistry to treating Temporomandibular disorders.







    Treating 'TMD' can be a complex field because it deals with all the complexities of chronic pain. However, it can be a very rewarding area. I also discussed why the umbrella term of 'TMD' is not really specific enough. We can do better as a profession to understand the diagnoses within 'TMD' a little better.

    I have uploaded the Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD) PDF file on to the Protrusive Dental Community group as promised to the listeners.

    Which is the Best Dental Splint? [SPLINTEMBER] – PDP038

    Which is the Best Dental Splint? [SPLINTEMBER] – PDP038

    Which is the BEST Dental Splint?









    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsXjNkmQf9s

    Best splint on YouTube - or listen on the usual podcast channels







    It is finally SPLINTEMBER and we kick it off with an all time important question - which is the best splint for your parafunctional/bruxist/TMD patient?







    Surely it's a Michigan…right? Or maybe it's a Gelb appliance? Or the humble soft splint…? Did I just say that?SURELY it's a A- Splint, B-Splint or a C-Splint?!







    Well, I have an answer for you…it's called the G-Splint!







    The G-Splint* is the best dental splint there is.







    There are so many factors that will determine this. In this episode, Dr Jaz Gulati explores many of the factors to consider for appliance therapy in the form of dental splints:







    * What are you trying to achieve?* Is the patient symptomatic?* What is the 'purpose' of the splint? (Hat tip to Dr Michael Melkers)* What is the goal?* What about access, cost, airway, orthodontics and compliance with splints?







    Protrusive Dental Pearl: A quick way to remove temporary crowns and onlays using a haemostat!







    Tune in for the rest of Splintember where I will go deep in to different splints!







    *The G-Splint is just a metaphor for splint provision based on the history, exam and diagnosis for your patient!

    Personal Branding for Dentists, Logos and Websites with Shaz Memon – PDP037

    Personal Branding for Dentists, Logos and Websites with Shaz Memon – PDP037

    It is the one you have been patiently waiting for since I announced it on Instagram....Personal Branding with Shaz Memon who wrote the BOOK 'Instagram for Dentists'.









    https://youtu.be/R9tU-lLlLlY









    What Shaz, from Digimax Dental, does not know about branding as a Dentist is not worth knowing.







    Protrusive Dental Pearl: Are you Google-able? Are you one page 1 of Google when patients and potential patients search for you? This is so important and is the reason companies pay MILLIONS for 'Search Engine Optimisation' or 'SEO' (not to be confused with SOE Exact!). A great way for Dentists to harness the power of being found in Google is to collect verified patient reviews using Doctify







    Collect verified reviews and add a widget to your clinician website







    Join our interview where I probe Shaz about all things personal branding:







    * Should you have a logo as a Dentist?* Learn about the hilarious error I made with an old, secret, stashed-away and destroyed logo that I am embarrassed about now!* Is a Dentist website page, independent to the practice website, appropriate?* What does Shaz think about doing it on the cheap via Fiverr or Canva?* What makes a good dental website - BONUS: Shaz critiques my website (completely unexpected!)* What are they keys to success for branding yourself online?







    The funny thing is that all the advice Shaz gave me on my Dentist website ...I have still not updated/improved it based on his advice. That is one of the pitfalls of doing everything yourself. Getting the advice, unscripted and 'live' during the show was the highlight of the episode!

    Not Your Average Young Dentist Journey – PDP036

    Not Your Average Young Dentist Journey – PDP036

    In this episode we listen to Alan's story. His name is Alan Burgin and he's also known as The Cornish Dentist on Instagram.









    https://youtu.be/oF-yyrwPfm4









    His story involves themes of mentorship, challenges, overcoming adversity, gaining a work life balance, (so actually going abroad to Australia for six months)....I don't give too much of the story away, but it involves so many real-world themes. And actually, it also involves a bit of luck and something that we touched on in Episode 34 with Richard Porter on emotional intelligence was the element of luck in your career trajectory is actually very important.







    The Protrusive Dental Pearl is about how to make cementing crowns less messy using Vaseline!







    I hope you enjoy listening to our reflective chat! NEXT MONTH will be Splintember! I will cover all things dental splints to simplify this confusing area of Dentistry.

    Case Acceptance in Smile Design with Dr Gurs Sehmi – PDP035

    Case Acceptance in Smile Design with Dr Gurs Sehmi – PDP035

    Case Acceptance - sounds dirty doesn't it?







    Well its kind of important.







    We can make a huge difference to the lives of our patients and do more of the Dentistry we love to do. But only if your patient sees value in your treatment plan and believes you are the right Dentist with the right solutions.







    I spoke with Dr Gurs Sehmi who shared all his secrets! (I kind of forced it out of him!)







    The protrusive dental pearl for the episode is a video I shared on Protrusive Dental Community (FB page) using a Endodontic tool to squirt peroxide gel deep in to the access cavity to treat an internal bleaching case (see images below!):







    Before internal bleaching. UR1 sustained trauma - it was root filled with an MTA plug and GP by my Endodontist, Dr Cesar Munoz







    After internal bleaching. What a difference!







    Unfortunately no Video podcast for this episode (technical error on my part!) but for anyone inspired by Dr Gurs Sehmi's protocols, do check out what he has to share:

    Jaz Gulati 0:29Welcome to the protrusive Dental podcast.







    Gurs Sehmi 0:32Jaz. Nice to meet you. Thank you for inviting me.







    Jaz Gulati 0:35It's finally good to have you on - I remember meeting you a few years ago at a charity event. It was a BSDO charity event. And even before then I knew about your online presence. But even since then, I have seen some really amazing video content that you've produced and you're a very good educator in the video content and recently, you came to mind when people were asking me, 'Jaz, do you you know any resources or where I can learn digital dental photography, and your teachable course came to mind straightaway and I shared that. And that's why I reached out to you - some amazing content that you produce.







    Gurs Sehmi 1:13Cool. Thank you. I'm glad you like it.







    Jaz Gulati 1:18Tell the listeners a little bit and people now who are watching on YouTube, tell them a little bit about yourself, where you practice what kind of work you do.







    Gurs Sehmi 1:27Sure, okay, so we're a little bit specialist. I work with Rahul Doshi who a lot of people will probably know he owns The Perfect Smile - I've been working there for the last 10 years or so. Recently, in the last three to six months, I've started just doing a little bit and just opened up a little bit closer to home. And when we do the more complex cosmetic kinda treatments that's that's really how we're we're pretty focused on completely,

    I will put the video up shortly, but you can catch it on Facebook premiere tonight at 8pm on Protrusive Dental Podcast Facebook Page.







    Do your grades at dental school influence your success as a Dentist?Is your IQ important?







    I would be surprised if any of you answered 'yes' for these questions.







    So what do Richard Porter and I believe is the most important predictor of success in your life, relationships and work?







    Two words: Emotional Intelligence.







    Find a quiet place, close your eyes* and take a dive in to the world of Emotional Intelligence as applied to Dentistry:







    *not while driving!!







    We discuss:







    * How important is luck in your life and career* What is emotional intelligence and what tangible examples can Richard provide relevant to Dentistry?* Why does high emotional intelligence mean more 'successful' and even higher earning Dentists?* Are you born with Emotional Intelligence, or can you improve your EQ?* Why is Emotional Intelligence important for Dentists, Dental Therapists and the entire dental team?* How can you find out your level of EI? Richard suggested The Big 5 Ocean Assessment - such as understandmyself.com
