You Hit The Nerve!!!
It’s a tough situation – you insert a crown or do a restoration, and then a few months down the road the patient needs endo. So what can make matters worse? When the endodontist tells the patient “You hit the nerve!” That’s a listener question we tackle on this week’s edition of The Dental Practice Fixers podcast, with special guest co-host Dr. Mitchell Josephs.
Then for our secret shopper calls we tackle an interesting question – “My crown ‘fell off.’ Can you ‘glue’ it back on?” Should be a slam dunk, right? Not so fast! Listen to hear what The Fixers have to say!
If you have a question that you would like answered on our podcast, or if you would like us to call YOUR office, please email us at email@example.com. You might be the office that gets it right.
