The Very Dental Podcast Network
Dr. Chris Ramsey and Dr. Rob Ritter join Alan to talk about what it takes to have a successful dental partnership and the amazing course they've designed to show you execute the kind of dentistry that you want to do from consult to finished case! Some of the topics they discussed were:
  • When do you renovate your office and what kind of dental office decor stays "timeless."
  • "The Protocol" is a course that Ritter and Ramsey designed to show people HOW they execute the broader concepts that you might learn from Spear, Kois or Pankey.
    • A complete workflow from consult to finished case
  • The benefits of small group learning in combination with hands on.
  • Dental partnerships are notoriously bad!
  • How Ritter found Ramsey
  • The mechanics of a long term dental partnership
  • "You can't have two kings in the castle" is the WRONG way to look at things.
  • You work for the partnership and the partnership is bigger than any one person.
  • The solution: lose the ego
  • The upside of a functional partnership
  • Choose business partners wisely!
    • understand personalities
    • understand philosophies
  • Treat the associate LIKE A PARTNER!
  • Learn to compromise! Learn to understand when you're wrong.
  • If you don't know, just say that you don't know.
  • Would you rather be right of happy?
  • The months for "The Protocol" 2022: February, May, August and November.
