    How Dentistry Is Evolving and What The Future Looks Like with Tiffany Wuebben

    We are excited to have Tiffany Wuebben back with us today to talk about how dentistry is evolving and what the future looks like! We are seeing more doctors owning multiple practices, which means supporting patients and practices in a larger way. We need to support our teams with the language of leadership, empowerment and self ownership to be able to grow, gain and continue to succeed; all while expanding! Let's build practices to thrive, not just survive.
    As the Founder and CEO of The Hygienepreneur, Tiffany Wuebben, RDH is a published Author and speaker and is dedicated to serving the dental community in a big way. Tiffany’s influence empowers the dental team to practice with an “ownership attitude” which leads to better clinical outcomes, higher case acceptance and more productivity for the practice. This solid base starts with mentorship, education and training. 
    Her book, Hygienepreneur: The Dental Hygienist’s Guide to Achieving Career Success & Personal Transformation, outlines twenty-five key lessons for becoming the ultimate dental hygienist, one who provides the highest level of patient care, contributes significantly to practice revenue and gains new insights into mastering their destiny.
    With 30 years of dental experience, Tiffany is vested in practice and patient success through the growth and support of a highly profitable hygiene department. She has a unique passion for the field of dentistry and believes in giving back to the profession that has given so much to her.

    Processing Feelings Productively with Dr. Natanya Brown

    Processing Feelings Productively with Dr. Natanya Brown

    We are excited to have Dr. Natanya Brown with us today to talk about processing our feelings productively. We have a tendency to distract ourselves from our own lives and from our feelings, which essentially makes it harder for us to show up in the ways that we really want to and in the most meaningful ways. 
    This impacts how we show up for our patients and practices, our marriages or close relationships, and most importantly how we show up for ourselves. 
    Dr. Natanya Brown is a board certified endodontist (with training from Tufts, Harvard, and the Univ. of Illinois at Chicago) as well as a certified life and weight loss coach (with training from The Life Coach School). Tapping into the power of mindfulness and coaching, she helps dentists decrease overwhelm, prioritize their personal goals, and create more joy in their lives.
    Her process has helped countless individuals decrease symptoms of burnout by equipping them with the ability to process stress productively and feel confident making choices so they live with intention. Dr. Natanya regularly presents on the topics of health, wellness and burnout to various dental organizations and is the host of The Life Coaching For Dentists Podcast.

    Improving Productivity and Your Bottom Line By Adding IV Moderate Sedation to Your Practice w/ Dr. William Moorehead

    Dr. William Moorehead is with us today to talk about adding IV moderate sedation to your practice, and how it can improve your productivity and bottom line. IV moderate sedation is used in only a small percentages of dental practices, and Dr. Moorehead sees the success those practices are having because of it. Think about how many people avoid going to the dentist becuase of their fears. What if you added the option of IV moderate sedation to your practice, to help ease these patients fears? Your practice could really thrive because of this option!
     
    Dr. Moorhead has practiced family and sedation dentistry in Flemingsburg, Kentucky for over 30 years. He has served as President of the Blue Grass Dental Society in Lexington, Kentucky, and President of the Kentucky Dental Association.
    Dr. Moorhead has received Fellowships from the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, the Pierre Fauchard Academy, the International College of Dentists and the American College of Dentists. He is a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Association and the Blue Grass Dental Society.
    Dr. Moorhead has been developing systems to overcome the challenging issues of staff absenteeism, turnover, lack of quick and adequate training, and high overhead, and has thoroughly documented these systems for other dentists to use.  In some circles, he is known as Dr. Checklist.  He speaks on topics related to clinical efficiency, dental anesthesia and sedation, dental technology, medical emergencies, and leadership.  He also co-teaches a 90 hour course on moderate IV sedation.

Great show, great guests!
