The Very Dental Podcast Network

It turns out that we've changed our minds on business stuff, too. Today's episode continues the series for Zach and Kevin where they talk to some experienced dentists about what things they've changed their mind about over the years. Today's episode features a discussion with Al about some things we've changed our minds about business, management and our dental practices!

  • Al has changed his mind about demographics. They are important and there are places that you can practice that are easier than others.
  • Kevin changed his mind about block/priority scheduling. Adding this has made all of the difference. 
  • Zach changed his mind about less expensive procedures. Scheduling productivity is important.
  • Al has changed his mind about creating urgency. Having less hours available makes patients less likely to fail appointments.
  • Kevin changed his mind about EFDA's. EFDA's make Kevin's office work. "Other people can be good with arts and crafts."
  • Kevin changed his mind about offering the best treatment. "Let your patients say 'yes' to your best care."
