Are you tired of hiding your smile because you aren’t comfortable with crooked teeth? Do you need something to help boost your self-confidence? There is good news. Six Months Smiles offers an alternative that will give you the straight, beautiful smile you desire without spending years in braces. With short term orthodontics you will:
If you’re looking for patients who have opportunities for esthetic changes, the best place to start is in the group of patients that you already have. In this post, I discuss a common blind spot that may be preventing you from getting patients to “Say yes.”
Did you know that (statistically) the first thing people notice about each other on a first date is the smile? It’s not the eyes, the hair or the figure although these might be important too. It’s the openness and sincerity of the smile.
We all get caught up every once in a while in the business of running a dental practice. It’s easy to notice things that you wish were improved when it comes to how your team members work, but far more difficult to remember and work to change them.
Patient referrals are a powerful incentive for your practice. There's nothing better than hearing from another patient just how happy they are with their cleaning, their fillings, or their orthodontic work. If you're looking to harness the power of patient referrals for your practice, there are several steps that will make getting them easier.

I’m so happy to be writing this post. June last year I decided to get a brace fitted and I just recently got it taken off. I won’t go into much detail but the photos will clearly illustrate how pleased I am with my decision. I thought it was super important to blog about this because since having the brace I realised how much of a big deal it wasn’t. I was so nervous about getting one in my 20’s and I felt ridiculous for the most part. I couldn’t help thinking I would look stupid and strange and that people would just stare at them. Quite a few people have told me they want one. My advice would be don’t care about what other people think just do it for you.
Whether you are opening your dental practice for the first time, or simply relocating it, the importance of selecting the best possible location cannot be overstated. If your office is in an inconvenient location with limited parking, or simply too far off the major thoroughfares, your patients may simply decide that your skill as a practitioner is outweighed by the inconvenience of visiting your practice. This can be a quick recipe for financial disaster for any dentist.
“You are kidding, RIGHT??? Now I Have To Add WHAT Into The Hygiene Visit?”
Do you ever cringe when the dentist/owner announces she is going to an educational workshop to learn a new technique or procedure? Let’s be honest: you may get anxious not because you are against professional development or an enhanced service mix, but because you think, “Now what else am I going to be told to cram into a hygiene appointment?”
In addition to the fifteen-minute morning huddle, it’s critical to meet with your team for a longer period of time on a monthly basis. Every step you take to become a more efficient dental practice will affect the number and quality of cosmetic cases you perform.
