The question of consent arises increasingly at the heart of complaints made under the NHS Complaints Procedure, and complaints to the General Dental Council on matters on professional ethics and conduct. In order, both to understand the information provided, and to give the necessary authority for consent, a patient must be competent.

I Took a 7-Day Challenge with PreVu and it’s Been a Game Changer for My Practice.

Posted by Luis Fabelo, DDS on 9/14/17 3:40 PM

Recently, I was asked by Six Month Smiles to try PreVu cosmetic simulation software in my practice. The company PreVu Software in Ft. Lauderdale, FL  –was filming a new corporate video in my area the following week and searching for a provider to offer real-life feedback.

Posted by 6monthsmiles on 7/27/17 10:38 AM

Getting new prophy patients in your office is good, but acquiring a steady stream of high-value cases is even better for dental practices looking for a boost in their bottom line. To earn these high-value patients, “marketing experts” typically say that you need to spend large amounts of money on their particular solution. These “experts” highlight their unique ability to identify these clients, drive them to your practice and ultimately turn your practice into the highest-grossing practice in the history of dentistry: “Just sign here, pay up-front for the first year, and watch the clients flock to your practice”.

Provide An Extraordinary Experience At Your Dental Office During Every Visit

Posted by 6monthsmiles on 4/25/17 3:07 PM

Customer service is an essential aspect of dentistry. In the past, a dental practice could be seen as being a great dental practice because it provided outstanding dental care. Times have changed, and a dental practice not only wants to provide outstanding dental care, but it also wants to outweigh the competition when it comes to providing customer service.
