Produced and hosted by Dr. Mike DiTolla, “Dental Up!” and “Case of the Week” are free, educational, and instructional content available to dentists worldwide by Keating Dental Lab
Keating Dental Lab has signed Dr. Mike DiTolla, accomplished dental educator and one of dentistry’s most entertaining speakers, to host its legacy “Dental Up!” weekly podcast, as well as direct and produce Keating’s new “Case of the Week” video series.
“Most dental podcasts feature dentists talking to other dentists about why they are so awesome at dentistry. Fair enough, but do we really need another one?” asks DiTolla. “One man has the courage to say NO! and it’s me. I’m the one man, in case that wasn’t clear.” Always looking to provide some levity in a profession as stressful as dentistry, Mike’s humor drives the podcast and its segments.
As host, Mike is fascinated by the personal and professional stories that dentists bring to the table. Mike’s guests share stories about their best and worst day as a dentist, their best and worst day as a speaker, and other unexpected, inspirational, and often highly entertaining personal anecdotes.
Keating Dental Lab also signed Dr. DiTolla to produce “Case of the Week” videos, a format Mike popularized 15 years ago that continues to inspire dentists worldwide to send better work to their lab. “Dentists love seeing other dentists’ preps and impressions,” says DiTolla. “The best cases for ‘Case of the Week’ are the ones where the dentist did a lot of things right, but there is still a small issue or two,” explains DiTolla, “This gives Keating Dental Lab the opportunity to show that with personalized service and attention to detail, they can help the dentist get the desired result despite those small issues.”
