He shares his journey from Orthodontist to Photography to Film Making.
He talks about his experience meeting George Lucas from Star Wars Saga and how he was instrumental for him to turn into film making… albeit.. subconsciously.

This podcast is also not about film making and how to be a film maker but it’s a journey of Exploration and Adventure about ourselves.

He shares his experiences meeting Oracles, Shamans, Koutons and even Dalai Lama

He talks about road to enlightenment.

We talked about a lot of stuff and to be honest a lot of dense stuff, about his movie and topics like spirituality, psychosis, depression, happiness, psilocybin and what NOT. You will have to be open minded and you will be in a whole different world, a World we don’t know about.

We also discussed other wide range of topics like motivation, meaning and purpose of life and not to mention Tim-Ferriss’ Inspired questions

This is indeed a dense podcast and there is so much to learn from the whole conversation that you would want to listen to few parts of the podcast over and over again

So without further Ado Dr. Phil Borges

And I am glad I DID. I would recommend that you you listen to him at least for Tim Ferris Inspired Questions at the end. 

Dr. Arash owns & runs multiple dental offices and runs a successful Teledentistry company called Dentulu. 

This session is not about Dentulu per se but about the person behind all the hard work and of course Teledentistry. 

We certainly delve into teledentistry in general and how we can utilize this technology in the pandemic times of COVID 19.

 We ALl have to agree COVID 19 is bringing us a new norm around the world including dentistry. 

I believe we have to adapt in such times and come out stronger and thats where Teledentistry can play role in this ever changing environment. 

We  not only talk about Teledentistry, but also how it can be used to bring in new patient to your office. 

Dr. Arash shares his journey from a dentist to entrepreneur to be involved with teledentistry. 

I think we had the most fun interviewing while discussing Tim Ferris Inspired Questions. 

He shares his rituals, mentors, purchases, and many more interesting stories.

Today is a very Special episode about what we are facing–Yes.. you guessed it right- COVID-19.

I am bringing you an expert in exactly that.His name is Dr. Raghunath Puttaiah.

He has long list of achievements and I would only say this– what he talks about is based on the solid foundation. 

If you are interested to know more about his credentials, please listen to first few minutes where talks about that. If you already know him you might want to skip for few minutes before getting in to the meat of the conversation. 

The podcast has a lot of information and was recorded 2 days ago on 18 March 2020. so some numbers mentioned will certainly change. Please keep in mind while taking decisions based on the information on this podcast. 

Dr. Puttaiah shares all the basic information about Viruses, their Origin, very briefly but spends quite a bit of time explaining what should be done to prevent such a thing. He talks about flattening the curve and what is coming in next few weeks.

We do get carried away partying like a Punjabi (an ethnoliguistic group from people of Punjab, a state in India known for partying and good food ) and have some fun moments in this otherwise morbid topic. 

We have also posted a Mindmap of COVID-19 at PodcastsOfDentistry.com/covidmindmap

I hope we all can learn adapt and take adequate steps from this great conversation to tide across this pandemic together. 

For any discussions, please do reach out to us at PodcastsOfDentistry.com/facebook.
