How to loose $1,000,000 with three little words, "They're Just Shopping"

Recently I have seen an increase in the interest of doctors to consider building a new practice, or remodeling their current office. Maybe it was just the hype and excitement of preparing for the CDA in San Francisco, but over the last three months I have designed and have in the plan check process three new dental offices. Each was a tenant improvement in an existing building. Two of the Doctors had a chosen equipment specialist to work with on their equipment selection. One did not, and was…See More

"Mark its amazing to me that the tax dollars can sometimes get in the way, yet those who serve find a way to continue to serve. My oldest daughter, Jennifer, ran a local county community program serving underprivileged children and families a number…"

Dental Office Design, Are you ready to build a team?

Its amazing to me when I meet with a new client who has decided  build their own practice, is under the belief that since they know dentistry, that designing a new office should be as easy as an extraction. Right? Well before I digress, I should start from the beginning, with the end in mind. As with any successful dental procedure, which requires the knowledge of the doctor, the knowledge of the assistant, the front office staff, and even the cleaning person. Each person, with their individual…See More

Mary Jane RDH BS commented on David Colombo's blog post Your Sterilization area is not a piece of furniture in your living room!
"You are funny! But that is what happened in one office I had worked at. She had spent so much to put up the office of her dreams that she wanted to make even that area available to anybody who wanted to enter..at any time."

Your Sterilization area is not a piece of furniture in your living room!

Recently while attending the CDA in San Francisco, I had the opportunity visit a number of equipment supplier booths. As a dental architect, it is my job to evaluate and recommend to my clients what would be in their best interest to serve their practice, goals and vision, taking into consideration the function and spatial design of the practice as well as life safety issues. So I was completely shocked and amazed at the pitch I was given as…See More

David Colombo commented on Dr. Madlena Kantscheff's blog post Dental Marketing Mistakes to Avoid
"The marketing to patients of the practice through the website is a great and important concept. Yet the marketing and education of the website may fall flat if in fact if the actual practice is not looking and acting the same way as the website. As…"

Mary Jane RDH BS commented on David Colombo's blog post Oahu Hawaii AAP -"Risk Factors affecting Pariodontal Treatment Outcomes" could apply to your dental practice.
"Absolutely. Outdated information is just that. Debris on counters is covered by bacteria. Operatories often do have surgical procedures; they still can be inviting, uncluttered, attractive, etc. People do notice; they appreciate care done…"

ADA compliance, the Law vs You

So you've decided its time to remodel your practice based upon a number of factors like old age, worn finishes, out dated technology, or maybe just wanting to be part of the consciences of being a green dental office. But did you ever think that there was also one major issue that needed to be reviewed as well. One issue that could tie your practice up in a lawsuit for non compliance. And it would not be an OSHA or a HIPPA issue. But one of ADA compliance! Now I know that most business owners…See More
