Online Dental Practice Reviews-Is word of mouth advertising dead? Part 1 New Flash - Old fashioned Word of Mouth Advertising IS dead! But…..New Word of Mouth Advertising, or more appropriately,online dental practice reviews or Digital Word of Mouth Advertising (DWOMA) is alive, growing by double digits every year, and far better than the original.

July 3rd, International Day of the Independent Dentist

2019-10-23T14:13:41-04:00

July 3rd, International Day of the Independent Dentist For US readers, the 4th of July is nearly upon us. It’s one of MY personal favorite holidays. Each year, I declare July 3rd a day of responsibility for personal dental independence and in that spirit July 3rd is officially hereby known as the International Day of the Independent Dentist. This is hands-down my most lengthy message of each year. Probably the most important of the year as well from a “philosophical” standpoint with how one thinks and operates from a foundational understanding of what we’re born [...]

The Independent Dentist-Is the Solo Dental Practice a Dinosaur?

2019-10-23T15:46:14-04:00

The Independent Dentist-Is the Solo Dental Practice a Dinosaur? Some think that the independent dentist or the solo dental practice is a dinosaur. American dentistry is trending toward more group practices doing more insured dentistry for lower fees. Some believe that independent dentists and solo practices, offering custom fee-for-service treatment, are waning. Big Case Marketing believes the opposite. We see solo practices which have a strong sales system and effective niche marketing in place prospering. Of course, some portion of the population is limited regarding what it can afford to spend or is willing to [...]

Dental Practice Marketing and Advertising

2019-10-23T15:50:07-04:00

Dental Practice Marketing and Advertising In Dental Practice Marketing  is advertising an expense or investment? Only a few years ago, advertising by dentists was prohibited and the playing field was level for all. But things have changed and dental practice marketing and advertising has become a necessary expense for dentists in private practices who want to remain independent of insurance dictates and who don’t want to be overpowered by low-cost commercial dental chains with big ad budgets aimed at creating volume by heavily discounting services. Without reaching out to the public, independent dentists are finding [...]

Independent Dentists worry-Are there too many dentists?

2019-10-23T16:31:03-04:00

Independent Dentists worry-Are there too many dentists? Independent dentists often ask at professional meetings "why are there too many" dentists? While the economy is in a very unfair state, Dentistry remains a great profession ESPECIALLY for those working to accumulate advantages in their local area.  This entire topic of how to create advantages that allow any dentists to win out over market unfairness is the subject matter of my latest book available at Amazon. Here are some signs of the times: *Dental school enrollment is UP.  Dentists’ kids and those in dentists’ circles of influence [...]

Independent Dentists and Competition -why it’s a good thing to strive for Un-equality

2019-10-23T16:31:56-04:00

Independent Dentists and Competition -why it's a good thing to strive for Un-equality Independent dentists as business owner's why is it important to understand and care (very much) about the concept of becoming “un-equal’ in your market against the competition ? Because ultimately, how ‘un-equal’ you are in the eyes  of the prospective and existing patient ties directly to your ability to stay independent from the tentacles of insurance discounting and to command full fees for whatever service you enjoy the most.  Dentists who are the most equal in the eyes of the public have [...]

Independent Dentist and Liberty over Dental Insurance Tyranny

2019-10-23T16:33:31-04:00

Independent Dentist and Liberty over Dental Insurance Tyranny As an independent dentist do you wonder why don't more dentists already have Liberty over dental insurance? For the most part it's because they have never understood they actually have a choice to make in this matter. Did you know that there are doctors practicing around you, who, at this very moment, are 100% free from the tyranny of discounted insurance contracts?  You and they both go to your practices each day and do the exact same clinical procedures.  You take a very big fee ‘haircut’ on [...]

For the Independent Dentist -Tiny excuses = big practice sabotage given enough time.

2019-10-23T16:42:26-04:00

For the Independent Dentist -Tiny excuses = big practice sabotage given enough time. After interacting with hundreds of colleagues most as independent dentists, I've observed that the successful do and think a lot differently than those who either struggle or underachieve. This doesn't mean that the  successful independent dentists are necessarily better doctors ...but one thing is very common amongst them which is they don't buy into the excuses projected by the profession at large, things such as: "It's not as easy for me to succeed; I'm not an aggressive type of person." "I'm not [...]

2019-10-23T16:52:37-04:00

The Personal BS O'Meter for the Independent Dentist. As an independent dentist there are many ways that the minority in the profession who attain advanced clinical skills, credentials, or specialty training try to be successful at providing a higher level of services to patients who have serious dental problems. It takes a lot to attain the clinical skills and it takes even more non-clinically to pull it all together as an independent dentist. Here are a few things to think about or to ask yourself that may convince you to consider to change or motivate [...]
