Jodi and our guest, Dr. Rich Madow, are swapping a lot of slang on this episode. From the elusive “golden age” of dentistry to giving patients the “royal treatment”, dentists are using all sorts of slang to communicate with their dental team these days. After all, to be a successful dentist, communication with your team is key. And building a successful dental team is Dr. Rich’s specialty.
You might recognize Dr. Rich from the annual TBSE Dental Convention in Las Vegas, but on this episode we’re talking about more than just the convention circuit. Dr. Rich has a love for dentistry that is empowering, and there are ways continuing dental education and fun can go hand-in-hand.
Dental school can be fun? Might seem impossible to some, but Dr. Rich and his brother established the Madow Center for Dental Practice Success with that principle in mind. They are bringing coaches and mentors together to teach dentists how to actually enjoy their careers and increase profitability all at the same time.
Dr. Rich is passionate about modernizing the dental practice, and he shares ways we can all supercharge our own practices with new slang, new perspectives, and new attitudes. There’s always room for quality dentistry. When you’re passionate about something, that kind of positive energy can pass through your team and your associates. Most importantly, it will inspire you to keep learning. There’s no way you can already know it all. If you’re willing to learn something new and become an even better dentist, this episode of Dental Slang is for you.
