Mistakes High-Performing Dental Practices Make

The 3-part article series recently published on Dentistry IQ web site discusses the top 7 mistakes of high-performing practices and how to avoid them. According to the web site, here are the most common mistakes:

1. Most dentists are unaware of their numbers.
2. If you do not have a person who is dedicated to recall in your office, you are missing out on a huge opportunity.
3. You all love your equipment. Everything is NEW! It’s beautiful, but NEW is expensive.
4. Intraoral cameras are the most underutilized instruments in the entire office.
5. High overhead — most of the offices have overhead over 65%.
6. Lack of a financial arrangements policy.
7. You don’t always distinguish between the two types of new patients you have: ones who already know you and ones who don’t.

Imaging in Endodontics


The article describes the concepts, procedures, and instruments that allow endodontists to see these microscopic, hidden spaces in our mind’s eye. Having a cone beam CT (CBCT) machine makes this all much easier, as all of these anatomic questions can be answered preoperatively and in a much more definitive manner than with conventional radiographic means.

Marketing with Reliable Results and Consistently Strong ROI

Marketing your dental practice through direct mail postcards has proven to be one of the best ways to fill up your appointment book and create name recognition in your community. A regularly-scheduled, well-planned series of postcard mailings throughout the year can help keep your patients informed of dental procedures and advances that can benefit their oral health. And it can also help increase the loyalty your patients feel to you and keep them coming back to your office year after year after year. When done correctly, dental direct mail campaigns can bring an impressive and measurable return on your investment.
