Informative and Entertaining!
I’m an undergraduate student, but I know I want to be heavily involved in surgery, specifically implants, through my career. Obviously my clinical knowledge is not at the level that is discussed here, but the information is presented with great clarity, and I learn unique ideas regarding what is really possible. I’d recommend this to anyone who’s remotely interested in this field!
Excellent way to learn history, present status and future for the implant practice
My favorite podcast for dental Implantologists. As I said in the title you learn some history from the masters who explain where and how techniques developed which is important so I better understand what and why I do what becomes routine. So when something during the surgery requires creativity to make things work in the moment.
The current status changes so often it’s hard to keep up with while just life gets in the way let alone running a practice. Which makes me appreciate this young mans dedication to his show. Also because again he’s cataloging the history in an easily accessible format.
As anyone who works with implants or at least has followed the field knows our icons are passing on without this wonderful way of hearing their stories from their mouths which gives you so much in-site to not only their techniques but their amazing personas, R.I.P. Carl Misch, my mentor.
The future is wide open and who knows what’s gonna be influence the field next so there’s another reason to keep listening to Phillip.
With sincere thanks to Phillip for his work.
