Do You Follow Steps To Perform Your Procedures?


What's better, randomness or following steps? you randomly pick and choose steps in the procedures you perform based on your mood that day?  "Oh Mrs. Smith, anesthesia is the last step on my sorry this will hurt you more than me...." I have little doubt that you follow specific steps to perform your clinical procedures....otherwise you wouldn't have a license and you wouldn't be reading this. Following Steps Matters While every one gets THAT detail (procedures must follow steps to be predictable), only 5% get that the majority of success for selling cases beyond single tooth implant [...]

Kvetchers and Believability


How believable are you to prospective patients? How hard have you worked to engineer believability when it comes to advanced procedures such as full arch implants / All-on-4 / All-on-X implants? Did you know believability will either help or hinder your advertising results? Here's a story about believability in the marketplace. About Believability Six years ago, I had a conference call with two docs in an area of South Florida with a lot of retirees.  One of them (a GP) was gung-ho on restoring a lot of All-on-4 cases.  The other (a periodontist) was simply on the call to kvetch [...]

Why I Became A Student of the Sales Process


Why I became a student of sales process and why ClearChoice and every implant practice owner serious about treating multiple full arch cases weekly or daily is also a student of the same. Well, tough personal real-world experience where my advertising dollars were on the line forced me to leave my comfort zone as a typical implant practitioner to find answers otherwise I had no business advertising for these patients.  On my personal journey to treating 50 full arch implant cases annually in my clinical practice in the 00’s, I made two big sales discoveries.  Sales Discovery #1 Even with great advertising messages that cause an abundance of patients to call who need and are interested in [...]

Training and Intention Go Hand-In-Hand with All-on-X


The Full Arch Program is the largest network of independent and DSO implant practices delivering full arch implant care in North America. All of the details are here. It's one thing to be clinically qualified but intention (attitude and mindset) and it's role in success with these cases is also a big deal and rarely discussed professionally. There are thousands of docs with great clinical qualifications but either as a result of being 'Negative Nancy's' in between the ears or by being too concerned about what other's think of them, they seldom move up to treating (or helping) as many patients [...]

Implant Case Presentation Is Not What You Were Taught In Dental School


Have you spent many thousands of dollars on implant advertising and you received leads, but not many leads ended up as cases? Is your local area saturated by corporate chains like ClearChoice, Aspen Dental, Heartland, Affordable Dentures & Implants, and others? Do you hate the feeling of being a salesperson who needs to “close” people on treatments? Does what you’ve been told related to sales in dental implant CE courses feel like it doesn’t belong in a professional practice or sound ‘gimmicky?’ Are you still presenting your implant cases as taught to you in dental school with lists of procedures, codes, [...]
