Listen to the episode:


Welcome to D.O.P.E. Lunch, the lunchtime dental podcast for the short commute dentist, with Shawn and Zach.

This week, it’s coconut shrimp and fried rice up against house label clam chowder.

We’re talking core buildups this week. Yummy!

Shawn talks about how, if you’ve got a same-day dentistry solution, you can combine a core buildup in the cementation portion of your procedure for a profitable endo/core/crown appointment.

Are you maximizing your coding too, with posts for most of your endo, or do you stay away from posts?

One property we need now with our core materials is bonding that doesn’t require another liquid as a linking agent for our dual cure materials. Two core materials that DON’T require link bottles are:

Visalys Core from Kettenbach

Here’s a great Mad Dentist Minute to YouTube and chill. If you’ve even HEARD of Karate Kid or know what a Crane Kick is, you gotta check out Cobra Kai on YouTube Red. Says Zach Meiners “It is NOT lame.”

Another great series to check out on Netflix is Black Mirror. Shawn says it’s the tech version of The Twilight Zone.

Until next week… STAY DOPE!
