Busy summer often leads to slow September in the dental office
Dentistry Business Secrets
As a family dental practice our schedule has been pretty full over the summer months. As I look ahead at the fall schedule, I am reminded of the need to make marketing efforts now while the schedule is still full to avoid a slow September and October. Many of my pediatric dental patients were in the office over the summer for their dental checkups. Parents often schedule their appointments for that same time which means a significant percentage of patients in my suburban, family friendly dental practice have had appointments over the summer months.

What would you do with 55 per cent higher case acceptance?
Dr. Bicuspid
Every Halloween, jack-o-lanterns are eye-catching and, to say the least, interesting. These expressive pumpkins bring us all enjoyment. The carved masterpieces have transformed over the years from simplistic designs with smiles to intricate graphic art pieces. Why do jack-o-lanterns fascinate us, and why are we drawn to them? How do they hold our interest and mesmerize us? Is it the diversity in their expressions, for example, their toothless, jagged, or checkerboard smiles? Their grins can tell us something about society and our responses to smiles.

So, what does an oral health coach do?
Natural Gumption
Oral Health Coaching is about taking the skills that someone has learned as a dental hygienist and bringing them to the home, the institution or the school. Not the scaling teeth and lecturing part of a teeth cleaning, instead it's the explanation and problem solving part, and the part where the patient has an ah-ha moment and is able to connect the dots themselves. It's about arming everyday people with the information they need to take care of their teeth and gums day in and day out.
