Hey Ambitious Dentists,

In addition to running Dental Intel, Weston is very active in the dental community and is always looking for ways to help dentists make breakthroughs in their practice.

As a numbers guy myself, I couldn’t be more excited about our conversation today.

Episode 94: Quality Patient Financing For Your Dental Practice

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

Ever run into this problem?

A patient comes into your office with a major tooth ache. Within minutes you know they need a procedure done. Problem is… the procedure is a bit on the expensive side.

You explain the situation to your patient, and the patient agrees, they WANT the treatment… But simply can’t afford the cost.

So they ask you to do the minimal amount to make the pain go away. Of course, within a few months, they will be back sitting in the chair right where they started.

The truth of the matter is, as a dentist you provide services that can change a patient’s lives, but that doesn’t always come cheap.

Fortunately, there are some alternatives out there today that allow you to provide the care you recommend while not forcing the patient into financial ruin.

How? By providing quality patient financing.

The keyword there is quality.

Of course, there are a few bad apples in the financial space who offer those in need predatory interest rates, but with today’s technology and information at hand, there ARE options and services that aim to create win-win- situations for all those involved.

The lenders can make money, you generate more revenue for your practice, and the patient gets the service they deserve.

Today’s guests Brad Bailor and Dave Roehr of Proceed Finance have a very interesting background and I think you’ll find their view of patient financings interesting, even if you don’t plan to offer patient financing.

Ep 93: How To Build A Top Performing Team For Your Dental Practice

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)Whether you’re just about to start your dental practice or looking to take your current practice to the next level, it all starts with building a good team.

In dental school, you learned how to fill a cavity and spent thousands of hours studying dentistry… but I’m guessing you didn’t have to take a course on how to build a great team.

Which is why I’m so excited to introduce today’s guest  Alex Nottingham, CEO of All-Star Dental Academy.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Alex, he is one of THE experts when it comes to building a great team and has provided hundreds of dentists all across the world the training and resources to set your dental practice up for success.

As I mention in the interview, Alex and I have been wanting to do this interview for over two years, and I think it was definitely worth the wait!
