Is It Time For Your Team To Get Calibrated?


Doctors, have you ever you wondered why more perio is being consistently diagnosed in hygiene operatory A than hygiene operatory B? Hygienists, are you ever concerned about how the new patient exam starting in the doctors chair, may not include accurate perio diagnosis? Maybe it is time for the doctors and hygienists on the team to get CALIBRATED?? Take a look at the short video and diagram below to get ideas on how to get more consistent perio diagnosis with everyone on the team!

Got Blind Spots?


Have you ever heard the expression, “get the puppies back in the basket”?

Well, for us, it means getting all our practice systems and team members ‘in the same basket’ or ‘in alignment’!  Once you’ve done that, you can identify the blind spots preventing you from developing productive systems and having an engaged and accountable team. Believe me, your patients are secretly telling you, on a daily basis, exactly were your inefficiencies are and were you can start to create profitable change!

Join Kristine A. Hodsdon, RDH and myself for this month’s webinar, Master Your Practice’s Blind Spots, and learn how to identify blind spots and walk away with easy to implement solutions for your unique situation and begin to develop goals and strategies that ignite your continuous growth and success.

How’s your motivation?


Chris Grosser said, “Opportunities don’t happen, you create them!”

One of the unique aspects of dentistry is that we have the power to create a new opportunity with each patient at each appointment! One of the most frustrating aspects of dentistry is staying motivated to look for and create those opportunities each day!

In this short 3 min video I share what keeps me motivated, in the hopes that your desire and willingness to look for and create opportunities to talk to your patients about perio will be ignited!
