Today, I talk to Kane Southwell who is a senior manager at MoreDent. Kane has been with MoreDent since the company’s humble beginnings. He has more than a decade’s worth of experience in helping dentists incorporate implant dentistry into their practices.
In this fifth episode of the dental implant audio residency series, we talk about the implementation and back-end support in implant dentistry. Kane shares the basic tools needed for implant procedures and stories of dentists placing their first implants. Aside from taking credible implantology courses, Kane highlights the importance of having a supportive team to set yourself up for success.
