After having a successful career as a Cosmetic Dentist and dental educator for many years, I was invited to join a small business mastermind group of 5 entrepreneurs in the online and tech space. I had no idea at the time that my decision to join this group would be such a pivot point in my career. I was amazed as I watched how they leveraged modern technology to connect with potential customers and generate leads. I started experimenting myself with different ways to communicate with my patients and stumbled upon something that forever changed the way I practice dentistry.
During my cosmetic consult appointments over the years, I realized that my patients always had the same three questions: Can you help me? What is the process? What does it cost? This realization and my curiosity led me to discovering and developing my own system that I have since labeled the Smile Virtual Consult. The SVC system allows me to connect with patients from all over the world and let them know I can help them, how many teeth they should do and what it is going to cost them.
Within a couple of months time of using the SVC methodology my practice and reputation exploded. I went from prepping one or two cosmetic cases a week to multiple cases a day. I even stopped taking new patients unless they were Smile Virtual Consults or cosmetic consults. I went from working 4 to 5 days a week to working 3 days doing the dentistry that I really enjoy doing.
I feel like I have cracked the code to practice freedom and now I want to share it with those that have my same vision. I want to surround myself with like minded doctors all over the world that can offer consults in this way and grow their brand and their own dream practice.
When I am not in the office you can find me hanging with my wife and 4 kids or on the lecture circuit sharing my passion for dentistry all over the world.
