Here’s how I handle cases like that last post. This patient really didn’t want to take out her tooth but was told it was likely cracked. For predictability I like to treat these in multiple visits and fill them after the probing has healed and bone has regenerated.  No finger crossing.

Hey @kellyslater , Albee and I are looking forward to the surfer / dentist team challenge at the #surfranch.  I have a few #dentist buddies who would love to be on your team if your dentist isn’t ready. 😂 🙏🤞

Sad to see Surfer Magazine close it’s doors. @surfer_magazine was the giant of surf media from 1960-2020. I was lucky enough to have a few photos and articles in Surfer over the years for surfing, surfboard shaping, and in this case #dentistry.

I spent the first four years after dental school practicing general dentistry before going back for my endo residency.  Oddly enough, during this time I somehow picked up a (small) contract and was surfing professionally during this time. 
-
Dentistry gave me a unique opportunity to revisit places I grew up traveling to for surfing, and give back to communities that had given so much to me.
