    Shorts: 71°

    In late June, 71° is the coolest part of the day in central Michigan. In February or March, 71° is an amazing respite from winter! It's all about context.

    Al talks a bit about how this concept can be applied in dentistry and how the same patient on the schedule can wreck your day or be something you look forward to...all depending on context!

    Group Function: What Would You Do? (Classic)

    Group Function: What Would You Do? (Classic)

    Today's Group Function is a "classic." This was recorded back in the days of the Dental Hacks podcast, long before we were dealing with COVID.
    Alan is joined by Dr. Rich Rosenblatt, Dr. Erin Elliott, Dr. Joshua Austin and Dr. Lance Timmerman to answer the quandries of the ever curious Dental Hacks Nation!
    What do you do when a patient you dismissed wants to talk with you? What do you do when your patient tells you a specialist you referred them to was acting inappropriately? This and a bunch of other great situations were proposed to the brilliant and hilarious Brain Trust and you won’t want to miss how they answered!

    Very Dental: Make it Look Like a Car Payment with Dave Roehr

    Very Dental: Make it Look Like a Car Payment with Dave Roehr

    So much of our continuing education time is spent learning to do "big case" dentistry. For most patients the problem with selling life changing dentistry is sticker shock. What's the solution?
    Dave Roehr is the CEO of Proceed Finance. He had a legendary career at Cabelas as CFO and president and when he decided to retire he found that it wasn't for him. So, he brought his experience in financing to dentistry! Dave explains how research has shown that most anyone in your practice will choose to finance life changing dentistry if you can make it feel like a car payment! 
    How is Proceed Finance different than other dental financing? $2500 minimum to $70k and up! How does Proceed Finance work? How can you use Proceed Finance to "get your reps." Some links from the show:
    Proceed Finance Cabelas Also, I'd like to thank Dave and Proceed Finance for his continued support of the Voices of Dentistry meeting!
