In today’s episode, we take a virtual trip around the mouth and share which of the large variety of forceps we think are preferable for taking out each type of tooth, although it’s important to note that there are many different ways of doing things and what wo...

The purpose of a dental elevator is to break the fibers of the periodontal ligament, and if you know how to use it properly, it is a very powerful tool which can do a lot more than you think! In today’s episode, Dr. Jake Stucki, my brother, is back on the podcast. Our discussion covers how an elevator works, which elevators will likely be most effective in which circumstances, and the times when we wouldn't recommend using an e...

In the United States, aggressive pain management practices have led to an opioid crisis which is responsible for thousands of deaths every year. Among those who have lost their lives in this untimely and avoidable way was Dr. Omar Abubaker’s son. The unspeakable pain of losing a child led Omar down a path of discovery around the dangers of opioids, which are the common go-to pain management drugs for doctors of all specializations,...

Although the crazy hours and high pressure environment that characterize hospital-based practice will not be everybody’s preference, there is nowhere else that Dr. Gabriella Tehrany would rather be utilizing her OMS skills. For the past 12 years (other than during the COVID-19 lockdown) the longest time that Gabreilla has spent away from orthognathic surgery is two weeks, and as a result, she has acquired a wealth of wisdom relatin...

Many oral surgeons are likely to have a type-A personality and are often inclined to want to control, rather than delegate tasks and responsibilities. While these traits are useful to the focus required during oral surgery, it’s not always conducive to instituting a well-run practice. In today’s episode, we are joined by Dr. Mykle Jacobs and Consultant Bob Spiel, to discuss the keys to running a successful private practice. When Dr...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other types of sleep disorders can have detrimental impacts on people’s lives, young and old.

Today’s guest has had experience with both starting a practice from scratch and buying an already existing practice. In a previous Every Day Oral Surgery episode with Dr. Solomon Poyourow, we focused on the former, so today he is here to share the ins and outs of the latter. From the mindset that you should have when you enter into negotiations with the seller, through to what you can expect from the transition period, how to deal ...

There are few oral surgeons who have done as many interviews as my brother, Dr. Jake Stucki, and I’ve done my fair share too. With the interview season starting now, we thought that it would be a good time to share our top tips for one of the key elements which will determine whether you will get into an OMS residency program. From your favorite Tupac song, to the way you want to impact the oral surgery profession, you have to be p...

Today’s guest is the first surgeon I’ve had on the podcast who has a completely hospital-based practice. Many surgeons have concerns about having a practice of this type; if you are one of them, you might have your mind changed today! For Dr. Jackson Morgan, the ever-changing, incredibly rewarding nature of his role as a hospital-based surgeon is exactly what he wanted out of his career. It is not without its challenges, but then a...

There’s never going to be an anesthesia technique that is 100% foolproof, but the LMA/Sevo technique used by Dr. Paul Rollins and his partners, gets pretty close, according to Paul. Other than a small number of people who have small, or otherwise difficult, airways, the LMA/Sevo approach is safer for the patient, and a more pleasant experience for the surgeon. Amongst other advantages which Paul explains today, there’s less chance ...

The oral surgery profession is heavily dominated by men, and therefore, being a woman in this field can be difficult. In today’s episode, we’re joined by Dr. Jaclyn Tomsic, an oral surgeon who didn’t let any of the hostility she experienced as a resident stop her from achieving her dreams. Today, Jaclyn works four days a week in private practice, and one day a week in the Case Western OMS program where she tries to give to resident...

“No worldly success can compensate for failure in the home.” Alongside the fact that we are all oral surgeons, another commonality that I have with the two guests on today’s show is that we all went (or are currently going) through our oral surgery residency with at least one child. Dr John Tannyhill is the Director of Harvard’s School of Dentistry Oral Surgery Program and Dr. Michael Baron is an oral surgery resident at Mount Sina...

Suturing has a variety of purposes; it helps to quicken the healing process, minimize bleeding, and hold things in place. There are also a number of different categories that sutures fall into, for example, natural, synthetic, resorbable, and non-resorbable.

In today’s episode we are joined by Dr. Aaron Liddell, a repeat guest on the podcast; because he has so much valuable knowledge to share one episode wasn’t enough! The main focus of our conversation today is fractures. Over the past few years, and particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Aaron has noticed an increase in the number of fracture cases that he is being called in to treat.
