The Very Dental Podcast Network

Ah, the schedule. The dentist's best friend or worst nightmare. Today's guest on the Dental Hacks podcast is Lois Banta, a consultant and speaker who gives a ton of ideas of how to whip your schedule into shape! Some of the highlights include:

  • who you should and shouldn't "pre-appoint" for 6 month recalls (hint: it's not everyone!)
  • how do you change the person's mind about cancelling an appointment?
  • how to create "the most reliable patient in the practice"
  • how do you know you've got the right consultant in your office?

Lois is awesome. You'll be hanging on her every word and she's going to give you ideas on how to fix that schedule!

You've probably heard of Practice on Fire Live. You know, the two day seminar on May 13-14 featuring a bunch of great speakers talking about a wide variety of topics from clinical excellence to how to run your business better. Today's Brain Trust features three of the masterminds behind this incredible seminar: Dr. Graham Dersley, Dr. David Maloley (aka: the Relentless Dentist) and Dental Hacks favorite Dr. Cory Glenn! One warning, though. If you listen to're going to want to go!
