Welcome to the new Dental Slang Podcast! We are your hosts - Dr. Christopher Phelps from North Carolina and Dr. Jodi Danna-Denton on the mic from Texas. We’re ready to talk about something that’s often overlooked in a dental office - slang.
“What kind of slang are you using in your dental office today? Because we’re talking about the latest slang in the dental industry in this episode. Maybe you’ve heard of 'mobile dentistry' and maybe you haven’t, but it’s something that’s starting to change the way patients look at their dentist.”
What is slang? Well, slang is more than just the way people talk. What we’re interested in is why people say the things they say. Where do these terms comes from and what inspired them to stick around? Because sometimes slang can stick around for so long that the very people using it don’t even remember where it came from!
Dentists are no different. We use slang in our offices to describe everything, from dental tools, to fluoride, even insurance claims. Patients use their own slang with us, too. It can be a riot learning all of our different analogies and slang. If you’ve ever been curious as to why people say the things they say and what inspires these little nuances in our language, then tune in to this podcast right now.
