This is a podcast for dentists by dentists. No agenda – just solid science. You can now earn dental CE from the Dental Digest Podcast
Dental digest is a dental podcast devoted to evidence based dentistry. A thorough understanding for advanced adhesive dentistry and biomimetic dentistry is necessary for creating composite restorations that last. In this episode, Dr. David Alleman will clear up several misconceptions related to biomimetic dentistry, advanced adhesive dentistry and operative dentistry. One of the greatest misconceptions in dentistry is that enamel obtains a better bond and stronger bond than dentin. While enamel bonding is less-technique sensitive and more straightforward, extensive literature has been published to demonstrate that dentin can obtain a stronger bond. That being said, dentin bonding is far more technique sensitive.

Maybe what you need isn’t a break from dentistry but rather you haven’t yet found your reason to love it. In this podcast, we uncover the awe-inspiring science behind dentistry. We delve into the inter-workings of everything from biomimetic dentistry, dental materials, pathology, endodontics, dental implants, periodontology and so much more.

The Problem with Continuing Education
We know what it’s like to be busy. We know its difficult to find time for continuing dental education (CE). Each year you need several hours of CE to maintain your license. However, when are you possibly able to find time for CE? The time you set aside for CE typically competes with time you’d be spending with your loved ones or resting and recuperating. You’re typically sacrificing nights and weekends to do CE. What’s more, because you’re spending that time doing CE during your precious downtime, are you even bringing your best-self to the classroom? Or, are you just checking off a box to say you satisfied a requirement. CE is intended to keep you current in dentistry. But, if this requirement is competing with your personal life, are you really getting much out of it?
Our CE is designed by dentists FOR dentists. We’re in your corner because we personally know the struggle. We created a CE program that gives you time back. How? Our organization is approved by the Academy of General Dentistry to give you CE when you listen to the podcast. This means that you can earn CE when you’re exercising, commuting to work or going grocery shopping. We adapt to your busy schedule. After you listen to the podcast, your last step is to simply take a quiz verifying that you obtained the intended lesson objectives. We even created a table for you (reference above) so you know which episodes are eligible for CE. We make it easier than ever to stay current on evidence based dentistry.
Affordable for a Greater Purpose
We’re commonly hear dentists remark about how affordable we’ve made our CE. Some even recommend we make it more expensive. We chose our price point for a reason. If we make it too expensive, only a selective contingent of dentists will be able to have access to it. But, how will that impact our profession and more importantly our patients? We made it affordable because we want our entire profession to be able to continue to advance and not just a select few. More importantly, if we continue to advance as our profession, our patients are better off.
