I'm going to share a very interesting and informative story with you that I know plagues majority of dentists and it's down right awful. It involves dental websites.
Here at Local Search For Dentists we care about our clients successes and it's out #1 priority everyday. Unfortunately not everyone you hire out there thinks the same as we do. Part of our program is working hand in hand with your web company or web…Continue

Don’t you just hate sales hype from some dental suppliers and manufacturer’s claiming their products and services are best just because they sell it? Something to be said for number crunching but technology doesn’t magically increase your ROI or improve your…Continue

"We don't send statements. The dentist is afraid that would upset the patients."
Some dental practices struggle to manage their billing systems. There can be many reasons the dental billing system has crumbled, such as dental office manager turnover, lack of training with the dental practice management software, or even embezzlement. No matter what the reason for a disorganized, occasional billing system, the problems caused are the same. Patients that don't…

Our general dentist continues to do well in this time of continuing economic crisis that causes many to put dental care on the back burner behind more pressing needs like mortgage payments, car repair bills, groceries, etc. He considers all the cards with his patients - what's best for them and how he can best help them obtain the most necessary care. This includes consideration of the reality of finances, which really make or break a treatment plan, however wise the plan may be.…

A little late in the week, but wanted to repost this blog post from a few years ago, because in all honesty, nothing has changed since then, except we have more people in need....
Well, it's hump day, and I'm busy trying to secure grant funds for a free dental clinic, in fact, the only free dental clinic in the county. This clinic serves the homeless, and recently added the same services for the uninsured, working-poor of the community through a…Continue
A few months ago a story broke about a dentist’s office in Oklahoma that CNN reported has been called a “perfect storm” for infections. Health investigators say about 7,000 patients who visited this particular dentist in the past six years may have been exposed to HIV and hepatitis. Some of the more violations brought up before the state dental board include “multiple sterilization…Continue

Every dentist I know would like more new patients. So - how do you that? First, you have to know your numbers. Find out which marketing programs have been most successful for you, and which ones are the losers so you can make solid decisions based on real numbers. It's so easy to get sold by the latest marketing idea - "Dr. you can be the first in your area to have a mobile website!" but you need to know what's working for you.
In this brief…Continue

I couldn't pass up a chance to share the link I found on Twitter today — celebrity photos at the dentist.
Granted, they aren't huge names, but the photos do include Conan O'Brien, whose dentist told him he "only had a week to live." (Not really) And Paris Hilton, who says she got "bad anesthesia" when having her wisdom teeth pulled last May. Remember when Demi Moore lost a front tooth? I don't either, but this photo reminded me that she posted a pic of herself missing a front tooth,…Continue
