The High Tech, High Touch Practice

with Dr. Chris Haag

TDS Logo 600X600If you have ever attended one of Gary’s courses you know that the concepts he teaches are drawn from his real world experience in his own practice in Phoenix, Arizona. Gary talks about what he has walked first. The entire purpose of the Thriving Dentist Show is to share information that will help you have a THRIVING practice and our interview today is another real-world example of someone who is thriving in a pretty unlikely place. Today we have a special guest on the show who considers himself just a regular dentist from Lincoln, Nebraska. Well friends, don’t let his modesty fool you! Dr. Chris Haag has managed to build a very successful practice in an average town by combining the concepts of high tech and high touch. His practice is state of the art but also emphasizes the old fashioned value of treating patients like family! This is a recipe that is working extremely well for Dr. Haag and can work for you as well.

We are huge fans of technology here on the Thriving Dentist Show and I love the way you have incorporated technology. But! the technology takes a back seat to the more human side of your practice when necessary. One of the headlines of a page on your website is; ‘A Dental Team Who Will Treat You Like Family’. I think this is very cool because that is precisely what people want and value today. I know our listeners are excited to hear exactly how you achieve that balance.
