That One Bad Employee Move Could Be Disastrous

I remember when I was a kid and my dad’s general dental office had exactly two employees: my grandmother (front desk) and one assistant. It was a VERY different type of office than the one most of us run today. HR issues? Pffft. Not back then. As I embarked on my dental practice career nearly […]

Strike Hard. Strike Fast. No Mercy.

I apologize, but I just couldn’t help myself. Anyone who has ever watched anything “Karate Kid” knows that the title of this blog is a quote from the Cobra Kai. While it’s not really ever meant in a nice way, I was able to think of one usage in which it is applicable. But first, […]

Is The Free Consultation A Good Thing For Ortho?

There have been many debates about whether a free exam and radiographs is a good thing for the orthodontic profession. Some say that it’s a lost leader to get people in the door, while others say that we should charge fairly for our expertise. Who is right? Proponents of the complimentary exam argue that we […]

First, Kudos to Dr. Kyle Fagala for putting on one heck of a TDO Live meeting at his house with some of the most dynamic speakers around. They covered a ton of topics and if you didn’t get to watch it, you should go to TDOLive.com and register. One of the topics they covered was […]
