Episode 142 features a discussion of when to save teeth and when to give up and move to different options.

Have you ever done heroics to save a tooth and wished you hadn’t? Everyone has…but what can we learn from it? In episode 142 the Dental Hacks feature a round table of dentists in the trenches talking about what they’ve learned about heroic treatment to save a tooth. Alan is joined by Dr. Frank Clayton, Dr. Tammy Bailey, Dr. Artie Volker and a brand new Brain Trust member, Dr. Paul Goodman! What does your training have to do with your ideas of when to give up on a tooth and when to be heroic? When is it a good idea to bend over backwards? Not only is this discussion informative…it’s hilarious. Buckle in, because this is a good one!
