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”.
If we hear one more person say “smile, it’s a beautiful day!”, we’re just going to explode. How can they be so happy? And what’s a smile got to do with it?

What if a smile can change your attitude, well being and mental health? Does the whole world really smile back? Not only does the world smile back, but the smile on your face changes everything, beginning with your mental and physical health.
For many people, creating an online dating profile is something they enjoy. Many people love being able to look for love from the comfort of their own home. The first thing people notice on a dating profile is the photo. Men and women of different ages love snapping photos of themselves that they will post online.
A majority of the photos that we see on dating profiles or social media websites are selfies. Many people will spend up to ten minutes (or way more!) trying to capture the perfect photo before the picture is actually posted. Preparing for a selfie involves a variety of things, including making sure your hair looks nice, finding the perfect location, and of course, making sure you have the perfect smile.
