[VIDEO] Tough Questions, LIVE Answers


Have you ever heard Kirk Behrendt speak? If you have, you’ll remember it. Kirk, in my opinion, is one of the most engaging, enthusiastic speakers in dentistry.

Lucky for me, Kirk recently asked me to join him on his Best Practices Podcast.

Now this is not your usual podcast. Kirk interviewed me on a Facebook LIVE video. And if I’m really being honest, I didn’t realize until the last minute (totally my fault) that it was going to be LIVE.  There was no rehearsal and as you’ll see, Kirk gave me some tough questions and I did my best to answer thoughtfully.

It was a blast and I think there are a few nuggets here that just might help you in your practice.  Click the image below to view the video.

Enjoy and I’d love to hear what you think.

From Resistant to Rock Stars


What does it take to become a rock star dental team?

It takes a dedicated leader, a committed team, an inspired vision, sprinkle in some fear, and add a lot of fun. Voila, you have a rock star dental team.

As a coach, it’s especially rewarding when you witness a team that goes from “I think I can make a difference in my patients lives” to “I know I can make a difference in my patients lives”. And now, only a few short months later, look at what they have accomplished. The truth is in their numbers. Can’t you just feel the satisfaction they have? The reward for all their work and dedication has been healthier, happier patients, practice, and team.
