#86 @Dr.Dave Shirazi Chinese Medicine + Dentistry= Cool

Welcome back peeps to another episode of the Tooth or dare Podcast!

We are grateful to have Dentsply Sirona as this weeks’ sponsor. 

The Nupro Freedom Cordless Prophy System from Dentsply Sirona is ergonomically designed to reduce strain and musculoskeletal disorders. We both use the Nupro Freedom along with the splatter-free (and gluten-free!) Nupro prophy paste in our practices. The comfortable and quiet Nupro Freedom is the best option for keeping our patients and our wrists happy. The removable and autoclavable outer sheath, the 20 unique disposable angles, and the increased maneuverability make this a must-have tool in the hands of dental hygienists. 

Get your Nupro Freedom Cordless Prophy System today at the Dentsply Sirona website.


Ask your local sales rep if they have a demo unit to use, perhaps this may help you convince the peeps in the practice with buying power! 


This week Irene and Katrina interview Dr. Dave Shirazi whose bio speaks for itself. Irene had a hard time getting to all the details because of her spotty internet situation but here it is!
