Master Magician and Master Dentist: What’s the Difference 

Ben Robinson

Master Magician

I’m crushing it because my brand is simple; you can only buy what I sell from me. That erases competition; I am therefore able to charge my price. 27 years of mastering my craft as an illusionist has taught me how to connect with people to perform at a high level in any field. 

In this lecture I will tell you how I have accomplished this and then dazzle you with spectacular magic tricks and knife throwing.

I’m crushing it because i am a cardiologist that appreciates the mouth-body connection and uses the latest technology to test for systemic inflammation. The field of metabolic diseases and their effect on inflammation, metainflammation, as well as inflammation's effect on advancing the aging process, inflammaging, is an ever-increasing one. This lecture is designed to teach you about the latest thoughts on inflammation and how this can help you recognize these signs and symptoms in your office and personal life.
