    154. Achieve Better Dental Practice Outcome - Millennial Dentist Podcast

    In this episode of The Millennial Dentist podcast, Dr. Sully Sullivan talks about how making changes in your dental practice can lead to better success. He explains that if you want your practice to run differently and achieve better outcomes, you need to change how you do things. This includes offering comprehensive patient financing, using better diagnostic tools, improving communication with patients, and adjusting your scheduling. By doing so, you can move from simple, insurance-based dentistry to more complex and profitable procedures. Dr. Sullivan also shares insights from the 3D Treatment Planning course and introduces the new 3D Dentists app, which provides helpful resources and courses

    In this episode of the Millennial Dentist Podcast.

    152. Simplifying the Buying Process Experience for Patients - Millennial Dentist Podcast

    In this episode of the Millennial Dentist Podcast, I shared how people are willing to pay extra to receive outputs faster, and how we could optimize this for our business. It's incredible to consider that we could increase our earnings by offering faster services compared to their current status. A line from Jeff Bezos changed my mindset: "Americans will always want their product faster, and they will always want it cheap." 
     
    That’s when I started implementing it to my business, how could I offer the same process to the patients. Earn more learning the value of time and how it can sometimes be more important than money. By offering faster options and asking simple questions, we can make dental visits better for everyone.

    151. Game Plan to Prevent Patient Loss - Millennial Dentists Podcast

    151. Game Plan to Prevent Patient Loss - Millennial Dentists Podcast

    In this episode of the Millennial Dentists Podcast, Tbone and I discussed the reasons why we lose our patients to other dentists. This is not a new phenomenon in dentistry; our patients either choose to replace us or new patients come in from other practices. This topic is painful, especially when a long-time patient decides to switch to another practice. Multiple skill-related issues contribute to this problem. We firmly believe that communication is the key to success. Through effective communication, we can address any anxieties patients may have regarding dental treatment.

Dr B Birch ,

Another deep understanding of dentistry!

Love the shorter podcasts! I’m more engaged and gets me to another level of application to my own dental ownership and thinking. Many or most of these talked about concepts I can take to my team and apply instantly and this I love the most. It makes sense and it doesn’t take rocket science….thanks for sharing your knowledge of success formulas!

Amanda_Michelle_ ,

Great Podcast!

I highly recommend The Millennial Dentist podcast! It is packed with some quality content and is fun to listen to!

So condescending

Listened to the credit card episode. The content was helpful and correct, but man was the speaker a condescending “friend”. While discussing various benefits he’d say things like. “I am accruing 3x as many miles as you” as he cut someone off. There has to be another way to phrase your helpful tips.
Won’t check out the other episodes, so just one data point.
