BLOGS & PODCASTS

As the world of endodontics changes and progresses, here are some links to information that might be useful to growing your practice or simply keeping up with the latest in our industry. I have also written blogs that might be useful to you.

A PLACE TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS

Like you, I’m always learning and researching in order to expand my mind and my business.  In these blogs, I share my philosophy and perspectives with you – ideas that may inspire you as they have me.  Please check back to see new subjects.

MAKE HAPPINESS YOUR BUSINESS MODEL

What if, instead of setting a projected income level as your objective, you instead, made feeling fulfilled, abundant and joyful the goal? That goes for everyone’s happiness – your patients, staff and YOU. I’ll understand if you’re rolling your eyes right now but please stick with me a few more minutes. Increasing evidence from

HOW EFFICIENT IS YOUR SCHEDULING SYSTEM? Here are my “Top 7 Scheduling Tips”

A TED talk I heard recently that was given by an ER physician made a point that pertains to every endodontist’s office too.  “Everybody has to be ready for whatever comes through the door.”  But how can we accommodate emergencies efficiently without causing stress, confusion and unproductive hours in the day? Once I tamed

Micromanaging your staff – Why it’s destructive and how to stop

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good men (or women) to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” Employees who feel that they are being micromanaged perform at a much lower level Not only have I

EMPLOYEES NOT MEETING THE MARK? Start with a productive conversation.

Just recently, a client told me he was very unhappy with a staff member but felt he didn’t have the time or patience to address it, let alone let her go.  Unfortunately, not addressing these concerns, is like not addressing a diseased tooth. It won’t get better with time unless something is done. So,

Worried about taking time off from your practice? Think the world will fall apart without you?

Many of my Endo2Endo clients have told me they get a feeling of dread at the thought of leaving the office for a week or even a day.  They have a hard time enjoying time off because they feel they have so much to lose (income, productive staff time, referrals etc.). I have seen people

GRATITUDE

WANT TO ATTRACT AND RETAIN THE BEST EMPLOYEES? GRATITUDE CREATES LOYALTY   Social media does more than attract patients to your practice.  It also has the power to tell potential employees what you are like to work for.  GlassDoor.com, for instance could discourage your ideal dental assistant from scheduling an interview.  That site posts

IS IT TIME TO REEVALUATE YOUR PROFESSIONAL WHY?

When I decided on a career in endodontics many years ago, I have to say that my WHY was to earn a really good income and avoid the strict 9-5 routine. Life being what it is, my thoughts and my WHY have morphed over time into something that resonates much more with me. To be specific,

What can you learn from a FREE 30-minute E2E Introductory phone call with me

I think the first thing you’ll realize is that just scheduling the call says something is not quite right in your practice and you’re open to new possibilities. But you’re not alone.  Sad but true, the majority of Endos I have asked to rate their practice satisfaction level from 1 to 10 replied “4 or

What’s the difference between a general dentist and an endodontist?

General dentists are essential practitioners who keep teeth healthy by performing a wide variety of treatments from fillings to crowns to extractions, bridges, cleanings and much more. In the field of dentistry, there are several specialists including cosmetic dentistry, orthodontic services, periodontics, teeth restoration, oral-maxillofacial surgery and much more.

ENDODONTISTS ARE SPECIALISTS IN SAVING TEETH.

Just like a specialized doctor in any other field (heart specialists, oncologists, pediatricians, etc.), endodontists are specialists at diagnosing tooth pain and root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. In many cases, a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment.

ENDODONTISTS MUST COMPLETE MORE TRAINING. Along with two to three years of advanced training beyond dental school, endodontists must have incredible precision and hand-eye coordination, making them highly skilled at performing complex treatments.

ENDODONTISTS DO AN AVERAGE OF 25 ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS A WEEK, WHILE GENERAL DENTISTS TYPICALLY DO 2. Endodontists are skilled specialists in finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnosis.

ENDODONTISTS ARE EXPERTS IN PAIN MANAGEMENT AND TREATMENTS THAT ARE LESS INVASIVE. They use specialized techniques to ensure comfort during their treatments AND they are adept at minimizing tooth pain after their root canal procedure when the pulp infection or inflammation heals.

ENDODONTISTS USE CUTTING-EDGE SPECIALTY TECHNOLOGIES. Endodontists use the most advanced materials and equipment designed specifically to treat tooth pain, perform root canal treatment and make the experience more comfortable and successful. Some examples of technology: Digital radiographs and 3-D imaging allow endodontists to take detailed pictures of tiny tooth anatomy to better see the root canals and any related infections. Endodontists use dental operating microscopes to better see inside the root canals to thoroughly treat them.
