Why Your Dental Marketing is Failing You

As a group, dentists keep abreast of the latest developments in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental issues. As a group, they tend to be a little tardy in adopting best practices when it comes to their dental marketing.

When Dentists Need to Take Drastic Steps

You may know of Mike Napoli, formerly first baseman for the Red Sox and now a free agent. What you may not know about is his years-long struggle to sleep. Mike had severe sleep apnea.
