133. Get Started with Dental Implant

In this episode of the Millennial Dentist podcast, we’re diving into the game-changer in my career – dental implants. I can’t stress enough how crucial a strong foundation in extraction and grafting is for long-term success. Allow me to take you through my journey, from embracing guided surgery for efficiency gains to the groundbreaking practice of taking final impressions on the day of implant placement. We’ll discuss the significance of continuous education, fostering clinical growth, and honing those communication skills that truly elevate your career. I’ll shed light on the 3D Dentist implant curriculum, a resource close to my heart, and encourage you to see dental implants as more than just a procedure but as a gateway to a broader clinical horizon.

Who is Dr. Sully Sullivan?

Dr. Sully is a fourth-generation dentist from Nashville, Tn. After receiving his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Tennessee, he moved back to Nashville to practice with his father. By continuing to invest in his education through adult orthodontics, soft tissue grafting, dental implants, third molar extractions, and obstructive sleep apnea, he helped double his practice in just 24 months. 

As a millennial, he truly believes in working smarter not harder, which has led him to utilize technology to not only deliver better patient care but more efficient care. Dr. Sullivan regularly uses CEREC, 3D imaging with Galileos, 3D printing, and multiple lasers. In addition to his practice, he started the Millennial Dentist Podcast in February of 2017 to help push his fellow colleagues to take their dental careers to the next level. Dr. Sully lectures around the country on cone beam technology, cad/cam dentistry, obstructive sleep apnea, and practice management. He is also an ambassador for the 3D-Dentist teaching facility in Raleigh, NC.
