Why Do I Have Bad Breath? 3 Possible Reasons

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Sep 26, 2016 11:08:48 AM

Bad breath is one of those social faux pas we all secretly fear. Because, or so we're led to believe, most people who have bad breath are unaware of it. That means other people either have to suffer through, or be put in the unenviable position of telling us our breath is terrible. The good news is that, if you follow your dentist's instructions, chances are good your breath is fine. Even if your breath isn't fine, there is probably a root cause you can attack.

The Six Month Smiles Provider Conference is almost here!

Posted by Dr. Noel Ananthan on Sep 12, 2016 12:00:00 PM

Hi fellow Smilers,

I can't tell you how excited I am about the upcoming Six Month Smiles Provider Conference in Boca Raton, Florida this October. It will be an incredible time for Providers from around the world to gather for three days of learning, motivation and networking. The first Provider Conference which I attended in Boston in 2012 was nothing short of inspirational and my team still speaks of the positive effects which it has had on our patients, our practice and each of us.

Communicate Your Way To Better Patient Perceptions

Posted by Dr. Eric W. Jones on Sep 8, 2016 10:45:23 AM

Who are you as a dentist?

When a new patient sits down for a consultation, what is your demeanor like? It’s important to be consciously aware of how you present yourself to patients. They will perceive your manner and draw conclusions from it that can last throughout treatment.

Marketing Your Practice: What Patients Read in the Waiting Room

Posted by Lee Ann Brady on Sep 1, 2016 2:53:17 PM

We’ve all sat in a doctor’s office waiting room, our legs shaking with nerves or boredom. The experience can be (at best) pleasant, or at worst, a dreary period of time during which our name is never called and all we can do is scroll aimlessly through our Facebook feed.

The Importance of Daily Flossing

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 29, 2016 2:21:31 PM

Caring for your teeth is a priority, and for most of us, brushing our teeth in the morning after we've had our coffee and breakfast and again before we hit the sack is second nature. Our parents did (one of) their jobs and trained us well. After all, once we lose our baby teeth and get our permanent teeth, that's it. They're ours to take care of and keep, or abuse and lose! But although most of us are good about the brushing part, many of us neglect cleaning between our teeth, a.k.a. flossing. The importance of flossing is stressed by our dentists, yet many of us just don't bother. Why? Perhaps it's laziness, or maybe it "grosses us out", or is uncomfortable with closely spaced teeth. Whatever the reason, however, we need to face some important facts to learn once and for all why we must take the time to floss once a day.

Meet Dr. Snapchat

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 22, 2016 2:26:33 PM

Daniel Rubinshtein isn't your typical dentist. This one has a strong presence on social media and is something of an Internet celebrity. His accounts feature Vines where he slo-mo walks around Manhattan while casually chatting away on his phone, complete with the hashtags #dentist and #modeling. You can also find photos of "Dr. Snapchat" lounging around poolside at tropical resorts and a clip of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show that was held at Madison Square Garden.

What Is Your Goal For New Patient Tours?

Posted by Lee Ann Brady on Aug 18, 2016 3:34:00 PM

First impressions really are essential in the dental profession. Cleanliness, reliability, and a sense of personalized care can go a long way to making your practice desirable in the eyes of new patients.

The first place you communicate the value of your practice is often the initial tour introducing patients to the office. This sets them up to later decide on high dollar care.

How to Manage Your Dental Practice's Reputation Online

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 15, 2016 2:00:49 PM

Fifteen years ago, patients received dentist referrals from loved ones. Now, potential patients can form an opinion about your practice after reading reviews on Yelp and Google+. Since you can leave feedback online anonymously, some people will use that to their advantage and post information that is false or misleading. Although it is tempting for business owners to ignore bad reviews and only focus on the positive ones, online reputation management is very important when you are a dentist.
