Dental Mastermind: Igniting Practice Growth Through Accountability


Masterminds are relevant. Napoleon Hill’s model of Mastermind groups for 10-20 business owners meeting together is a nearly 100-year-old concept that’s still going strong fast forwarding success for business owners in every industry. Why? Because if you take multiple smart individuals and put them together in a group with a highly skilled and knowledgeable coach (or several coaches), the result is not simply addition of these smart individuals’ talents but a factor of the group multiplied by its size.  10 participants is the equivalent of 100 “lone wolves” operating independently without input from other business owners! Masterminds are even more important [...]

Two Things That Divide Those Who Can From Those Who Do (A Lot)


Is it still possible to treat three to four full-arch implant cases per month or even two arches every week? In most most markets, these goals are still achievable. [We verify all markets before we embark on ANY goal which is a discussion we have on our 1:1 calls with possible new member clients. More on that below.] But there is a divide between those who can and those who do. The Appeal of Quick Treatments Patients still want and need full arch implants. These accelerated treatment methods that allow the patient to avoid a removable denture step over "traditional" implant [...]

Why I Love Young Oral Surgeons and Periodontists


Younger oral surgeons and periodontists get it! (Occasionally, older ones get wise and also get it!) In a second, we'll cover what "it" is all about. Professions are slow to change. On the whole, this is a good thing. The most change embracing group in dentistry has traditionally been the GP, especially in dental implants, but that's no longer the case.  There are some specialists who are now surpassing the GPs with embracing how they can go to the public as the biggest local expert and help far more patients in an ethical manner with full arch implant care. In [...]

With dental implants, there is a time to use premium and there is a time to not use premium implants. As a business owner and clinician there is a balancing act between cutting supply costs just for the sake of cutting costs versus ensuring you deliver a clinically predictable long-term result.  Too often clinicians look at implant fixtures as completely interchangeable and then simply go to a lowest cost solution. Clinicians complain about patients doing this to them and then the clinician does the same thing when it comes to applying "cheap" to things that aren’t exactly the same! Often [...]

The Truth About Average Dentists and All-on-X


Here is the reality "out there" in clinical land. Very few dentists have adequate clinical training (surgical or restorative) in the newest immediate loading modalities. The list of why this is the case is more than what's possible to cover in a short e-letter. This inadequate knowledge about new full arch implant modalities and/or lack of actual training is bad for patients who interact with the average clinician. A Better Approach For those who are interested in implantology and who do take the time to learn these methods of treatment, this lack of curiosity and interest by clinicians in your area [...]

Building a Dental Team – What Google Says


Building a Dental Team – What Google Says Our member dentists successfully use Google to build their practices on many levels including building their dental team. Many are amassing large stockpiles of Google reviews using this technology that makes getting hundreds of reviews annually as easy as seating a patient in an operatory. Dentists who are trusted the most tend to have the most reviews.  Why?  Because reviews are one of the measurement of trust by many consumers when they do their “homework” on services and products they are considering purchasing. Others are making sure their [...]
