The Very Dental Podcast Network

Episode 125 is a very special one for Alan. He sat down with his dad, Roger Mead, for a conversation about dentistry. Dr. Mead graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy school of dentistry in 1968 and is still practicing dentistry today! He still loves the profession and you'll hear about how things have changed and how they've stayed the same over a storied career in dentistry! He tells stories about dental school in the 60s, transitioning from working with no gloves, CE from Dr. Pankey himself, taking arrows for being a general dentist performing orthodontics and a bunch more! What started out as a talk with my dad ended up being downright fascinating!
