Justin Bieber goes Dental

Never say never. Justin Bieber is now in the dental business.


The teenage heartthrob has his own toothbrush and floss. Yes, you read that right. And actually, if it will get kids to brush longer, I'm all for it. Come July 1, people, mostly young girls, I'm guessing, will be able to spend two minutes brushing and listening to the Biebs sing "U Smile” (duh) and “Baby,” while the other toothbrush switches between “Love Me” and “Somebody To Love.”


The line of…

I pull up my favorite site and I see bobbleheads again. I want to see the smiling and dedicated faces of my fellow professionals..I am throwing down a challenge.

Healthfully Speaking: "Dear Oprah"


Let me begin by saying I am not an Oprah fan. It's not that I don't appreciate everything she has done for Chicago and it's economy, but I am never home during the day to watch her show and I am usually asleep when the repeat event occurs. The “Oprah Factor”, though, is huge. If she selects a book, a car, a gadget, it will have legendary sales and following. Many years ago, she listed SonicCare as one of her favorite thing. Those…

Where can patients buy Retainer Brite or Ortho-Sil Silicone?

Sometimes patients with braces or retainers need special products that you don't stock, and that are not available in local stores. For example: lip protectors, Ortho-Sil wax, Retainer Brite, or various Denticator dental picks and brushes. I wanted to let you know that there is a website that caters to these patients, For almost 10 years, DentaKit has made all of these products available directly to patients for purchase on the Web.

Nicolas Cage and me ... my way less than five minutes of fame

Nicolas Cage, New Orleans, and me. Three things that usually don't go together, but they did this past weekend.


New Orleans is at the same time one of my favorite and least favorite cities to visit. I love the food and free spirit associated with the city, but I'm just not that wild and crazy guy who loves to party on Bourbon Street all night and wake up with a pounding headache. One hurricane from Pat O'Brien's is my threshhold for alcohol so, sorry Mr. Big Sign in the…

Dental Marketing – Is Twitter Right For Your Practice?

I recently started marketing on Twitter, and I believe that if it is done correctly, this can be a great marketing tactic for most dental practices. But if done incorrectly, Twitter is likely to be a huge time-waster.
