Changing office hours seems like a bad idea. What if it doesn't work? What if it makes patients angry? What if production plummets with the new schedule? To help you dispel those negative thoughts, Kirk Behrendt brings in Dr. Rachel Barone, a mentor from the Global Diagnosis Education Study Club, to share how changing her hours improved her life and the life of her team and patients. More isn't better — it’s just more! To learn how you can seamlessly change your hours, listen to Episode 618 of The Best Practices Show!
Over half of the population has some form of periodontal disease, but very few practices have periodontal protocols. What’s more, putting protocols in place doesn’t mean much if you’re not tracking three important KPIs. You need to know these numbers so you can tell if the protocols are working, so your team members can have accountability for their role in the process, and so you can have the option to course-correct—or even better—celebrate when you need to.
Have you ever thought that everything should work all the time, only to be frustrated when it inevitably doesn’t? Today, Kirk Behrendt brings back Dr. Jim Otten to explain that very problem and how you can think better and enjoy your career in dentistry more. Everything works until it doesn’t, so learn how to focus on the outcomes and push through the difficult times by listening to Episode #617 of The Best Practices Show!
More and more people have dental implants, and that number keeps growing. But is it always the best option for patients? To reveal why some implants are problematic, Kirk Behrendt brings back Dr. Bill Robbins, co-founder of the Global Diagnosis Study Club, to make a case against some of the most commonly placed implants in “younger” patients. It’s the way we've always done it, but there’s a better way! To unlearn what you've been taught about implants, listen to Episode 616 of The Best Practices Show!
You ever try a new recipe, and it doesn’t turn out quite right? Maybe you added too much baking soda. Or not enough vanilla extract. Or WAY too many chocolate chips.
Anyone who works in the dental world has felt the pain of rising costs—though we work harder and harder, we have to keep pinching pennies more and more. To help solve this problem, Kirk Behrendt brings back the Solutionist, herself: Miranda Beeson. Your money doesn’t have to be working against you, so learn how to get your supply budget under control and your money working for you by listening to Episode #615 of The Best Practices Show!
No one suddenly has a seven-millimeter pocket. It happens gradually, often without patients knowing it! Once you identify and diagnose periodontal disease, you also need to communicate it to your patients. To help you follow through with that responsibility, Kirk Behrendt brings back Angela Heathman, one of ACT’s amazing coaches, with strategies to facilitate co-diagnosis and getting them into the schedule. To start prescribing treatment for better health and a better life, listen to Episode 614 of The Best Practices Show!
Do you ever wish you could do things differently in the past to help your career? While you can’t get in a time machine, you can learn from the experiences of others. To help you with this, Kirk Behrendt brings back Dr. Jim McKee to offer you his advice about the three most useful things he didn’t learn in dental school. You can’t change the past, but you can learn from it by listening to Episode 613 of The Best Practices Show!
Do you have a garden at home? If you’re like most people, you’re always comparing it to what’s on the other side of the fence. The grass is greener. There are more flowers. And, most importantly, there are no weeds.
Since the pandemic, things have shifted in dentistry. Everything from infection control protocols to HIPAA laws has changed, and you need to keep up! To give you a preview of key upcoming compliance changes, Kirk Behrendt brings back Linda Harvey, founder of The Linda Harvey Group, to decode everything you need to know.
