How To Build A Dental Practice Culture That Creates Patients For A Lifetime with Dr. David Moffet – Ep. 4 – Start Your Dental Practice with Jonathan VanHorn

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)What sets your practice apart from others?

Your “brand”?

Logo?

Name?

If that’s the case, those things don’t have an impact on what ultimately matters to the patient:

Their experience.

Today’s episode features THE expert on building the patient experience from the ground up, from the customers point-of-view.

Today’s bonus is a cheatsheet with the highlights from this episode you NEED to implement to create the “ultimate patient experience” in your practice. Click here to download that directly.

Dr. Moffet is the creator of The Ultimate Patient Experience, which is a simple set of very specific, “common sense” patient service steps being used by dentists all over the world to create unique experiences for their patients.

These experiences dramatically enhance patient visit values and increase repeat visits.

The UPE is Dr. Moffet’s “Secret Weapon” that allowed him to personally bill $1,826,445 in services in 2011, his last year of full-time work working only 4 days a week, for 37½ weeks (while he was vacationing all over the world the other 15 weeks!)

Dr. Moffet has refined and perfected this system over the last 17 years, to the point where it’s as reliable as a Swiss watch — no matter where you’re located or what kind of practice you are running.

Here are a few things you’ll discover in today’s episode:

How Dr. David Maloely Used Intuition (and Marketing) To Create A Successful Dental Practice – Ep. 2 – Start Your Own Practice

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)Is there a “one-size-fits-all” model to starting or running a dental practice?

If so, today’s episode, and guest, busts that myth.

For most of us, we have a similar path to practice ownership.

School, associateship, and then on to find a practice to take over or start a new one all together.

Where we all differentiate is the problems we’ll face along our individual journeys.

Dr. David Maloley, if anyone, knows problems and adversity along the journey.

Click here to get today’s episode bonus: A behind the scenes clip where Dr. Maloley covers how he consumes content, and a round-up of books he recommends to stay on top of marketing as a practice owner.

Dr. Maloley attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, where he earned his bachelor’s degree and later his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

As an undergraduate, he had the opportunity to work as a student athletic trainer on the sidelines for the Cornhuskers during the National Championship seasons in 1994 and ‘95.

In 2003, Dr. Maloley completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in Ft. Jackson, South Carolina, then served as a Dental Officer in the U.S. Army for the next five years.

While in the army, Dr. Maloley was stationed at dental clinics in Giebelstadt, Germany for two years and Vicenza, Italy for two years, providing general dentistry services for the local military communities.

After he returned to the U.S. in 2007, he worked at a private practice near Charlotte, NC for two years before relocating to Colorado to open Vail Valley Dental Care.

Dr. Maloley is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and a member of the American Dental Association, the Colorado Dental Association and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Since graduating from dental school, he has completed over 1,000 hours of continuing education.

Dr. Maloley is also the host of The Relentless Dentist Podcast, a fantastic podcast that is the interview series that Dr. David wanted himself and couldn’t find, so he created it himself!
