ACT Dental Blog: Your Go-To Resource for Dental Practice Success

Unlock a Wealth of Knowledge with Our Blog

At ACT Dental, our blog is your one-stop destination for the latest insights, strategies, and tips to help you grow your dental practice and achieve a better work-life balance. Stay up-to-date on industry trends, best practices, and expert advice by exploring our diverse articles and resources.
We are free to choose however we want to practice, wherever we want to practice, whenever we want to practice. There are no rules. You make the rules. Just make sure you create the rules that best support what you want for your life. Join us as Kirk Behrendt looks back at one of our favorite podcasts of all time with Dr. Mark Murphy as he shares some great advice on how to practice THE WAY YOU WANT in a model that is independent of dental insurance.
It’s so easy to get fed up with meetings that turn into a weekly gripe session because they feel like a waste of time. That’s time you could be cranking out a few more crowns, so why bother with the meeting? The problem isn’t that meetings are a waste of time—it’s that you need to structure yours better. In his book, Traction, Gino Wickman discusses the concept of the Level 10 Meeting, which aims to replace those pointless meetings with productive ones. A Level 10 Meeting requires laying some groundwork first, so before you try to leap directly to Level 10, you need to start with a strong foundation.
Every dental procedure has risks and benefits. How well are you communicating them to your patients? If you're unsure or don't know how to get started, don't miss this episode! To empower you with risk communication, Kirk Behrendt brings back Dr. Lee Brady, director of education for the Pankey Institute and founder of Restorative Nation. She shares her insight for managing patients’ expectations, reducing fears around procedures, and helping patients take ownership over their decisions. To learn how to advocate for patients through your communication skills, listen to Episode 568 of the Best Practices Show!
An A in dental school is an A in dental school. Without learning about business, you won't have a successful practice. To help you think better about the business side of dentistry, Kirk Behrendt brings in Dr. Howard Farran, founder and owner of Dentaltown, to offer some of his best advice for a successful career in dentistry. To hear Dr. Farran’s insights and to learn what dental school never taught you, listen to Episode 567 of The Best Practices Show!
The use of cell phones in daily life has become ubiquitous, and dental practices are no exception. While phones offer many benefits, they can also be a significant source of distraction for both patients and staff. In this blog post, we'll discuss the importance of creating a phone agreement within your dental practice so that your team can give their best energy to the things that matter most during the day.
Patients admit, but they omit. They don’t always tell you every drug they take, which creates a challenge for treating them safely. One way to protect them is by staying educated, and Kirk Behrendt brings back Tom Viola, “Mr. Pharmacology”, to share critical information about popular street drugs and how they can affect patients while they’re in your chair. By learning more about the drugs people take, you can potentially save more lives! To learn what dental school never taught you about drugs, listen to Episode 548 of The Best Practices Show!
Do you dread morning huddles? Do you even have them in your office? If you’ve never done them, stopped doing them, or don’t want to have them, it’s time to make a change! A huddle is more than just a huddle, and Kirk Behrendt brings back Robyn Theisen, one of ACT’s amazing coaches, to help you have effective morning huddles that you can’t live without. Huddles are the most important part of your day! To learn the right way to do them, listen to Episode 566 of The Best Practices Show!
