The Dental Up Podcast

Most dental podcasts are dentists talking to dentists about why they are so awesome. That’s gucci, but enough already. Listen to stories about dentists personal and professional lives. Their best day and worst day as a dentist. Their best and worst first date. Their best and worst employee. Always looking to provide some levity in a profession as demanding as dentistry.


episode 2: Episode 207 An Interview with Dr. Howard Farran Pt. 2

In this week’s Unsolicited Advice, Mike implores you to try the Nitro Cold Brew Dark Cocoa Almond Milk Foam. Order it from the app to keep from having to say it out loud. Howard starts off Part 2 of our interview by talking about how his Delta Dental fee for a crown in Arizona has slowly been reduced from $1,000 to $650, and he is pretty sure that it won’t be too long before it’s $500. Howard also tells the story of having his 8 class I amalgams removed and replaced with composite by one of the best adhesive dentists in the world, only to be in pain for the next 8 months eating handfuls of ibuprofen daily. As a result of his experience, and many others like it, Howard believes that Clearfil SE came in to save the day for dentistry and patients by introducing the self-etch concept to dentists, and shining a bright spotlight on the total-etch fetish in the industry at the time.
