Description

A dental podcast for the AVERAGE dentist. No question is too controversial for Joshua Austin DDS and Lance Timmerman DMD. Questions are NOT "best bonding agent" or "best impression material," these questions are the ones that are burning desire types. You know, like "can I harm my assistant for being annoying?", or "how much oral sex is too much after gum grafts?" or even, "Will my DNA be altered by getting a bone graft from cadaver bone?" The information that ALL dentists need. Where we coined the term "Bukkake Honor Circle"

01:05:29
<p>Back to a two man show this week as <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> and <a href= "http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> open up for some hot and sexy Centric Relation talk.  You don’t even wanna know how much Lance romances the mandible. </p> <p>Our first advice question this week absolutely stumps the interferences as they are clueless about the Shiggy Challenge…or the Kiki Challenge…or the In My Feelings Challenge….or the In My Fillings Challenge.  Listening to them trying to figure it out is like listening to two monkeys trying to mount a cast on an articulator. </p> <p>The next question involves dentists selling MLM crap.  Have you heard the good news about Advocare? </p> <p>Finally, our Reddit question this week has Josh and Lance delving into why dental schools are run like $400,000 dumpster fires.  Wakanda Forever!</p>

Have you ever had a patient demand you take another impression?  So... I'm NOT the only one with crazy patients?</p> <p>Question 3, a patient had root canal therapy without informed consent.  Is that a pretty standard procedure?</p>

01:02:57
<p><a href="http://www.workinginterferences.com">WI</a> are back! This episode is a doozy (aren't they all?). <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> starts by telling <a href="http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> his experience molesting a dummy during a sedation class.  It may be where Bill Cosby got his start...</p> <p>Question 1 is regarding nightly post treatment wellness phone calls.  Is that when the sex starts?</p> <p>Question 2 is about gnarly naked feet in a dental chair.  Is this a way to add services?</p> <p>The Reddit! question is more gum graft concerns.  Can you watch the Blue Jays, eat a dog, AND recover from gum grafts?  Probably not.  I think you might die.</p>

Episode 23: Accidental Oral Interference Mike DiTolla DDS
01:15:09
<p>Worlds collide for <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> as his former podcast partner, Dr. Michael DiTolla, guest hosts.  The awkwardness dissolves pretty quickly, after Mike and <a href= "http://www.DrTimmerman.com">Lance</a> agree on how lazy of a lover Josh is.  This weeks show features 3 <strong>Reddit</strong> questions! </p> <p>Kicking off is a question about dentists with shaky hands.  Lance confesses to having a bit of a shaky hand but promises its just the weight lifting supplements, brah. </p> <p>Question 2 is a question we’ve all asked ourselves before…can we sell a part of our body for money? </p> <p>Finally, we get to a question about swallowing….swallowing one’s own tongue.  We think maybe the dentist was trying to get the patient to swallow some lies instead.  </p>

<p>The #1 Podcast in Medicine on iTunes, Working Interferences is back!  Get your fix today!  We don't get it either, but for a brief moment, we were #1 in your hearts.</p> <p>This episode is a bit on the SERIOUS side.  <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> interviews a REAL periodontist about the ethics and legality of a prophy in the presence of periodontal disease.  Did WI sell out when they went #1?  You decide.</p> <p>The Reddit! this week is about personal hygiene with a knife blade in bed.  Is this what nightmares are made of?

Episode 20: I Want Some Nasty!!!
01:01:58
<p>This week, <a href="http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> must answer for his former people’s crime of a product called Funeral Potatoes, which is the most morbid side dish ever.  <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> patches up some previous discussions about bonding agents and rappers whose name he doesn’t know how to say properly. </p> <p>Advice kicks off with an incredibly awkward social situation that makes Josh want to hide in a corner and cringe constantly.  Lance and Josh try to dance around the PC implications of this question and not enrage a portion of the population. </p> <p>Faye asked a question about how to deal with an assistant that is screwing up her stuff.  We all know what Lance’s solution would be.  Josh, as always, takes his leadership cues from Greg Popovich, the surly coach of the San Antonio Spurs. </p> <p>Reddit gives us a little gem this week about an itchy tooth.  Would Preparation H work?  What does it taste like?  Cool mint, I bet.  Flavor blasted!!!!</p>

01:11:00
<p>Time for your Working Interference fix!  <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> starts by sharing with <a href="http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> his experience lecturing to children, despite not being allowed within 200 feet of schools or Chuck E. Cheese.</p> <p>Question 1 asks about employees hand washing, and whether temporary crowns taste funny after trips to Dook University.</p> <p>The second question is about tooth meridians and if Josh's spleen will rupture since tooth number 1 was removed.</p> <p>And finally, the Reddit! question is about the unique shape of a wisodom tooth.  What IS a mulberry? And is it a RACIST question?</p>

<p>A fun episode this week as <a href= "http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> and <a href= "http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> chat about the British Monarchy with some tremendous voice work. </p> <p>Advice starts this week with a question from listener Will who hates his assistant’s voice.  He comes up with some great suggestions himself, so the WI Guys have to scramble to find a solution to this vexing problem.  Fortunately, the day is saved when Kathleen Turner and Ellen Barkin give the boys a clue to how this should go down.</p> <p>Today’s second question is one of the hypothetical nature, which means there was actually nothing hypothetical about it and someone is a dirty, dirty girl! </p> <p>Finally our <strong>Reddit!</strong> question this week involves bone grafts and DNA. What if a patient got the traits of the person whose cadaver a bone graft came from?  Just wait until Ron Jeremy dies.  Josh will end up needing bone grafts everywhere. </p> <p>Check out our newest sponsor Goby toothbrushes at <a href= "http://goby.co/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?hl=en&q=http://goby.co&source=gmail&ust=1522523887259000&usg=AFQjCNFgwUBHDKp4xJzv3rgoUVJUXaug9A">goby.co</a>!  They are a great option for your practice’s power toothbrush needs.  Get them with your logo on the side!  They make a great gift, incentive or purchase for your patients.  Big props to the folks at Goby for making a great power brush that doesn’t break the bank!</p>

49:42
<p><a href="http://www.joshuaaustindds.com">Josh</a> opens this weeks podcast with a new segment, actually a podcast within a podcast called <em><strong>Josh Complains About Commercials</strong></em>.

Starting with a dentist who is considering going incognito to check out a local DSO. Josh and <a href="http://www.drtimmerman.com">Lance</a> talk about possible disguise and alias options.</p> <p>Question 2 comes from a dentist looking for some verbiage to go in a letter to send to patients with missed appointments.
