My guest today is Dr. Tom Giblin and I’m very excited to have him on the program. Tom is a prosthodontist and he’s an educator and he’s known for both his clinical excellence and his ability to teach things in practical, simple ways.

Our conversation today is wide ranging – we covered a lot of ground, lots of different topics. What I’ve always really appreciated about Tom is his generosity, his willingness to share his openness as he discusses all the things going on in specialty practice and some of the trends that he sees that are going to impact, not just specialty practice but general practice as well.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • [2:41] Backstory on how Tom became a prosthodontist. 
  • [7:02] The things Tom learned from his dad while growing up.
  • [8:27] Doing the fundamental things.
  • [14:18] Tom’s role as a prosthodontist.

  • [31:40] Lab flow and considerations when purchasing gear.
