If you are a regular listener of Thriving Dentist Show you may have listened to Show #31 with Dr. Dan Fischer as our guest who discussed the science of whitening. On this episode Gary shared some very specific techniques that will help you do more whitening in your practice. This is important because whitening helps patients take a greater interest in their teeth and often leads to more interest in restorative dentistry. That’s why Gary likes to make whitening a core element of your practice. By doing so you will be giving patients what they want and in turn, develop better patients in your practice. This show is designed to be very practical with information that you can immediately use in your office. You’ll also want to share this information with your team members since whitening is a team sport.
