Copy Machines, a Security Risk?

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the good, old-fashioned copy machine. But, as Armen Keteyian reports on CBS News, advanced technology has opened a dangerous h*** in data security.

When I saw this, I imagined all the potential scenarios in our healthcare industry, and I realized this had to be shared. Please take the time to watch this so you safeguard your practice privacy. I have posted this on my site at…

Defining Your Practice Brand Through Social Media Profiles

I sat down with an awesome dentist last week for a coffee and a chat about marketing. He’s getting started with a social media strategy and like most of us, has a lot of questions on how to balance his personal life and practice brand. We talked about the importance of great, friendly looking headshots and the…

The Changing Face of Dentistry

Dentistry, like most industries today, is in a state of change. While this isn’t unusual or surprising, what I’ve found does catch dentists off guard is how few consumers realize this. When most people think of going to the dentist, they still think of painful shots and endless drilling. They don’t realize that there are less intrusive and gentler options available today that could eliminate both of them. For many people, this knowledge alone could be enough to…

Being Fired With Insult and Humiliation

The humiliation and stripping of one's self dignity when being fired

is only made worse by how the termination is handled. Having been on

both sides of this matter, firing someone and being fired, I can

personally relate to both.

The sad fact is many times businesses must make decisions that mean terminations. The good news is I know of many businesses who DO care about what happens to their employees. They provide job search,

counseling and coaching, and at…

Arizona dentist sentenced to prison for failing to file tax returns

I received this in the form of a press release from the IRS. As the attached note said, "It serves as a reminder that taxpayers 'fall out of the system’ for many reasons. However, willful failure to file or pay is a federal crime and may alter your life." Just something to keep in mind...

Hats off to another company making a positive impact on the environment

I recently heard about a program by Sharps Compliance Inc., that transforms discarded needles, syringes, lancets and other medical waste into a new product called PELLA-DRX™ – which is used in the manufacture of many types of resources including cement, vital to everything from homes to highways to high-rise buildings. I was pretty impressed with the video, and encourage you to check it out… Continue

American Idol contestants and Susan Boyle

I've been reading with interest the celebrities that are interested (or not) in undergoing cosmetic dentistry. They include Susan Boyle, who was voted the seventh most influential person in the world, and Crystal Bowersox, a frontrunner in the current American Idol competition, which I admit I never watch, but I read… Continue

Suspended in the Moment of Inner Beauty

This year for Christmas, my sister Annie gave me a book called,” Guardians of Being” by Eckart Tolle. The book is brilliantly laid out as a child’s book, and eventhough I would recommend you read it to a child, it

is meant for adults. A beautiful message put into a simple form of reaching and

achieving the meaning of the NOW, the PRESENT MOMENT, the deeper connection to


With the simple soul…

Taking the Mystery out of Motivation

Dental practices are different than most businesses because there really isn’t a lot of room for advancement. The job you start out with is usually the job you’ll stay with. As a result, keeping your staff motivated so that they’ll continually put forth their best efforts can be a challenge. If it’s something you’ve struggled with, you’re not alone.

So how do you ensure that your staff remains motivated,…
