The new keys to Free and Easy Dental marketing

Let’s face it, lots has changed in marketing over the past 15 years. In 2000 the internet was still new and people were just starting to realize what it meant to “be on the web”.

Who Likes To Sharpen Instruments?

Coarse or Fine Grit Instrument Sharpening – Which To Use?

Whenever I ask a group “who likes to sharpen instruments?” no one raises a hand.  I doubt that surprises you. When I then ask “who likes to scale and root plane with sharp instruments?” all hands go up. I fully agree with both answers.
