The Very Dental Podcast Network

Dental operating microscopes are a fascination with me. But I don't use mine as effectively as I would like. Today's guest on the Very Dental podcast REALLY does! I had the chance to sit down with Dr. Jorge Zapata at the Voices of Dentistry 2022 to talk about it!

You've no doubt seen Jorge's videos of 3rd molar extractions and other surgery on Facebook. He graciously posts them in the Very Dental Facebook group and other groups and they are the most satisfying dental videos I've ever seen! We discuss how he started using microscopes and how he's learned to document through the microscope. Learning to use the microscope is one thing, but learning to DOCUMENT through the microscope is Jorge's specialty!

Do you have something you use every single day on every single procedure? I do. There isn’t anything I do in dentistry that Enova Illumination isn’t a huge part of. I’ve owned a lot of different kinds of loupes. I’ve had Designs for Vision, Zeiss, Orascoptic…all of them. My favorites are the Enova’s Vizix loupes in the Airon frame. Mine are red. RAWR! Along with the amazing, weightless and cordless Qubit, Quasar or Quantum headlights (all others are just toys) you cannot do better.
