Back when this podcast was called "The Dental Hacks" we used to include a segment in most shows that we called "Go Hack Yourself." It was a chance for us to talk about something we'd been using in our practice, listening to, reading, eating watching on Netflix or whatever caught our fancy at the time. I'm bring in this tradition back starting with today's episode! I'm going to drop some spicy recommendations for the Very Dental Nation to try. Or not try. Either way is cool with me.
Recommendations in today's episode:
- Berman Instruments #3 and #4 Flexible-Thin Composite instruments
- "Land of the Giants: The Apple Revolution" from Recode and Vox
- Quad Lock phone cases/mounts
- Waterpik Sonic 2.0 flossing toothbrush

The Very Dental podcast is brought to you by our friends at Microcopy Dental. Neodiamonds from Microcopy Dental are very fine. I mean, all of them are awesome, but some of them are actually “very fine.” Specifically I mean the yellow striped ones they call “finishing” diamonds. I use Microcopy finishing diamonds on just about any patient that I might be spinning a bur on. Very fine finishers do the heavy lifting on composites so polishing is simple and easy. I use them to finish crown preps. I’ve been known to adjust Emax and Zirconia with them. Once you try them you’re going to find a ton of places to use them! And just like all of Microcopy’s burs, they’re sterile out of the package and single use means they’re sharp and efficient and can be disposed of at the end of the appointment!

Cosmecore by Cosmedent is one of the most versatile materials in dentistry. I’ve come up with a lot more ways to use it than just core buildups. What new ways have you found to use it? Check it out at verydentalpodcast.com/cosmecore!
My 11 year old son is in Invisalign with one of the orthodontists that I refer to. He’s doing REALLY well for an 11 year old boy. I see the case for his aligners all the time. With the orthodontist’s logo gloriously blazed across the lid. And then I thought to myself...aligners, splits and removable offers a brilliant way for people to remember your office and your brand! And then I thought of our friends at Zirc who offer aligner sized and denture sized boxes in tons of colors that you can customize with YOUR logo! They’re offering a buy one, get one deal on retainer or denture boxes with your logo and 4 lines of custom print!
