FEATURE #88 – Our Implant Journeys with Dr Graeme Pearson & Dr David Keir

If you’ve been a long time listener of the podcast, you may recognise some familiar voices in this episode! In this month’s Feature, Dr David Keir and Dr Graeme Pearson are back on the show to catch us up on their dental journeys and in particular, on their implant journeys.

Both David and Graeme have taken different approaches to their further education in the realm of implants. Whilst Graeme took a deep dive straight after graduation, is doing a GradDip and works within a surgically focused practice, David has done more online education over the years and recently undertook an overseas placement to get more experience having not had a mentor in the practice. In today’s episode, they both share the pros and cons, the challenges and lessons they’ve discovered so far in their chosen paths.

TIP #92 – Working Out The Prosthetic Side of Implants with Rob Dulieu

If you’ve ever flipped through a product catalog for prosthetic implant components, you’ll know that there is a LOT there. Literally hundreds of components, connections, abutments, screws, copings, healing caps, analogs, channels and more. And that’s just for one brand.

So when we come to restoring implants, what do we ask our lab for? How do we make decisions around implant prosthetics? What are the common mistakes people make here?

Rob Dulieu is a master ceramist and lab technician with extensive experience in all types of implant restorations – everything from single implant crowns to complex multi-unit cases.

He has guided many young dentists through this steep learning curve and shares with us his top tips for restoring implants and the decision making process around the prosthetic side of implants.

#36 – Business Outside of Dentistry with Matthew Youssef

In recent times more successful dentists are standing up and sharing stories of challenge, not just their successes. Whether it’s a failed case and a life story that they have got through, it really has helped many thousands of us dentists realise these great dentists have challanges too, just like us.

Dr Matthew Youssef has achieved a lot in his relatively short career. Matt has extensively trained in implants and surgery and has gone on to create ARIA Dental Education, a training academy where I met Matt. They provide entry level hands on implant training with support from some of the best Australian specialists. 

Yet the real value here is in Matts story and achievement, even in the face of adversity.

I hope this inspires you as much as it inspired me. Enjoy.
