“Non-Specialty” Dental Specialists: Texas Court Changes the Playing Field

In January, a Texas court ruled that dentists who have bona fide credentialing in a specialty area not recognized as such by the ADA can advertise themselves as specialists. According to the ADA, the suit was brought by the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, the American Society of Dental Anesthesiologists, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the American Academy of Oral Medicine. In response to requests for summary judgment during the pre-trial phase, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas found that the Texas Dental Board’s advertising regulations ...

Are You a “Legendary” Dentist?

George Herman Ruth Jr., whom you probably know as Babe Ruth, is still considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. You have probably heard about Babe Ruth’s “called shot” in the 1932 World Series against the Chicago Cubs. Ruth, down two strikes in Game 3 of the series, allegedly pointed to the outfield stands before sending the ball out. There’s a great video about the “called shot” that you can find on YouTube at this link: http://swm.io/calledshot This is an iconic moment that is a legend that may not EVEN BE TRUE!

Take the Long View With Your Marketing

Measuring numbers in your practice isn’t enough – you need to watch the right numbers. Lots of dentists spend too much money on numbers that truly don’t matter, like Facebook “Likes,” Twitter “Followers” and Google PageRank.

Phone call tracking is the missing link between your marketing and your ...

The Single Biggest Difference Between You and Multimillionaire Dentists

If you haven’t heard of Dr. David Moffet, you really should learn more about him. I think he’s a good example that many dentists could follow. Dr. Moffet started a practice making $120K per year in a low-income suburb of Sydney, Australia, and grew it into a $3 million annual business. In fact, he sold his practice and now makes his living marketing a practice-enhancement plan. That’s a 2500 percent increase in collections, and I’m sure that qualifies as a success in just about everybody’s minds. I think a lot of what he says makes sense. I’m not here to shill for his ...
