The $10,000 A Day Dentist

Introducing Dentistry.com; A Noble Project to Get More People to Visit the Dentist!

with Brian McCarthy

Getting patients to visit the Dentist is a topic that Gary is passionate about! The truth is, despite all the amazing advances in dentistry, we are not doing so great on getting more people to visit the Dentist. The ADA has been tracking this data for almost 60 years now and the sad reality is that less than 50% of the population visited the Dentist in 1960 and the same is true today! Gary invited his friend Brian McCarthy to discuss an amazing project that has the very noble goal of getting more people to visit the Dentist.

Running time: 61:15

In this Show, Gary and Brian discuss;

  • The motivation behind the dentistry.com project, compelling research that demonstrated the need for an all-in-one consumer platform like dentistry.com,
  • the 4 most common reasons why patients do not visit the Dentist,
  • the MTP (Massive Transformative Purpose) of dentistry.com which is all about transforming lives through dental care,
  • what Brian has learned about consumer behavior after spending more than $500 Million to get patients to visit the Dentist,
  • how you can ‘claim your practice’ on dentistry.com and why you should do so
  • and the interview concludes with a fun discussion of products and services that will be coming from dentistry.com that will help Dentists prepare the the next wave of dentistry.

You will thoroughly enjoy Brian’s passion for making a difference by getting more patients to visit the Dentist.

Compare Your Practice to 2,000 Practices in 4 Specific Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)

with Weston Lunsford - Episode 300

It is absolutely critical to measure performance in your dental practice. However, your practice management software only tells you ‘what happened’ as opposed to ‘what’s happening’.

Running Time: 64:42 minutes

To help you better understand what is happening in your dental practice, Gary invited his friend Weston Lunsford on the Thriving Dentist Show to discuss 4 specific metrics that will propel your practice to new levels of performance! In this Show, Gary and Weston discuss the concept of ‘things that are measured, improve’ and then focus on 4 very specific metrics that you MUST measure to achieve your full potential. These 4 metrics are:

Hygiene Patient Reappointment %

Dentist Production per Patient

Treatment Acceptance %

Unscheduled Active Patients

Weston then provides you with benchmark information from 2,000 practices showing you the average, top 10% and bottom 10% of each metric in this 2,000 practice database. This benchmark information allows you to see how your practice performs compared to these 2,000 practices! You will LOVE Weston’s passion for measuring KPI’s and his equal passion for helping Dentists better serve their patients.
