Profile your active patients to improve your targeted dental marketing

Is your practice growing?

Active patients: the lifeblood of a dental practice. If your active patient volume is growing, you have decisions to make: is it time to hire another hygienist? Are my secretaries keeping up with the phone calls coming in? Do I need to add an EFDA? On the other hand, if your active patient volume is shrinking, you have different decisions to face: is it time to cut back on staff hours? What additional marketing programs can we begin? What topics do I need to…

The Recent Dramatic Economic Events In American Dentistry Fostered A Great Paradox: For Some Practices, It’s Unprecedented Opportunity. Yet For Others It’s Monumental Challenges And Painful Setbacks!

Virtually unknown among the occupational community of dentists and their business handlers, the recent events were literally the most important events in the private practice of dentistry since Chapin A. Harris, MD, DDS started the profession back in the 1840s. These dramatic events changed dental practice forever. Yet, most dentists and their practice management advisers are not fully prepared to cope with the threats and to capitalize on the opportunities.

Interestingly, the…

Dental Anxiety: What the Dentist Could Do to Help the Patient

Dental anxiety seems to be an increasing phenomenon these days. A lot of people do suffer from dental phobia or fear of dentist and dental work, most especially the kids. And I never exclude myself to dental phobic children. When I was a kid, I never received any dental treatment because having a dental checkup is always among my greatest fears.

Why Go Apple In A Dental Practice And Then Run Windows?

Could someone explain to me why you would pay the high price for an apple computer and then buy a windows operating system to put on it? What would be the advantage of this? Despite popular belief the components in the systems are not manufactured by apple they are just assembled by apple. Meaning you could get the same or better components in other systems.


I know everyone says that apples are more reliable and maybe that is partially true if you are running an Apple OS that…

There are a whole bunch of options and few of them work well.


Craigslist, Ebay, Hoping and Praying and donating.


I know of lots of offices that have tried all four options. The problem in most cases is the dentist does not have time to sit around answering the constant craigslist and ebay…

Keep It Super Simple: A Dental Technology Integrator's Mantra

Nothing is more frustrating for a dental technology integrator like myself than going into a new network that is just a complete mess. I just did a basic install of some digital x-ray sensors in an office that already had prof.suni and dentrix. As I am going through the workstations loading drivers I see that windows firewall is on, anti virus real time scan is on with no exclusions set, and the current IT guy has like 5 mapped drives all mapping multiple ways to get to the same location. It…
