You Are A Gift In This World

I said goodbye to a patient recently. We both were overjoyed in a way, having completed the patient’s comprehensive oral health care to a point of maintenance and prevention!

What a gift it is to see someone return to oral health!

(Thank you to my patient ♥ I am so proud of how far you have come.) But the goodbye was bittersweet, the reasons for the patient leaving being challenging, to say the least.

In saying goodbye, I was reminded of what strength we all have. It’s so easy to get lost in the run from task 1 to task 2, and to grow overwhelmed by our challenges. It’s easy to forget all of the beauty around us and all the strength within us.

Today, I send thoughts of strength to that patient to find the next step in life’s journey, and send a reminder to myself and my friends of what strength and beauty we each bring to this world. Cherish that strength, live in the moment, and, at every turn, treasure one another.

CLICK HERE to return to the post from a near year ago that this patient re-inspired in my mind.

Have you considered hiring a dental practice management consultant in your dental office? As the owner of a dental practice, you wear a lot of professional hats. You are a health care provider, business manager and mentor. Every once in a while you may even have to pick up a wrench and fix a leaky faucet yourself.

Whether you wish to reduce your workload or expand your business, a dental practice management consultant can be a vital resource in reaching your dental practice goals. Regulations vary across countries, and while organizations can guide you on how to run a practice, a practice management consultant can craft a plan based on your individual situation and needs.

Internal Marketing for Dentists: Essential Tips

internal market

You open your dental practice only to find, as reported by Titan Web Agency, that you spend 20 to 30 percent of your gross revenue on marketing. Competition and your budget are tight.

The good news is that effective internal marketing for dentists may help to reduce your practice’s external marketing expenses. In fact, the results of an international poll conducted by Nielsen show that many customers trust internal marketing more than traditional advertisements.

So, how can you put internal marketing to work?
