Sometimes when i am treatment planning a case I wish I could go back in time and rewrite the patient's dental history. The learning from these experiences is to forward think and help patients understand that the decisions they make today can close doors to dental possibilities in the future.
In a fierce rainstorm even with the wipers on fast they barely keep up and it feels like you can't quite see clearly. Have you ever felt this way in your office?
All of us have a learning journey from how we began and first saw our role with patients to where we are now. That journey is supported and guided by mentors, and often a key thing we learn transforms who we are.
One of the joys of practice ownership is dealing with the daily business dilemmas at the same time as we provide high quality care for our patients. There is nothing like coming in tot he office to be confronted by a problem to solve.
What an amazing experience to be in Madrid Spain to attend the Ivolcar Vivadent Experts Symposium on Esthetics. Have you ever wondered what the "leaders" in dentistry discuss when they get together?
One of the greatest sources of support for me in dentistry has been being part of a small group study club named "Brady Bunch". The five of us have gotten together twice a year for the last decade. We have watched each other's children grown, our practices change and our lives evolve. Who do you have in dentistry that you call "a friend"?
