Gary is an expert in the ‘Business of Dentistry’ and has the unique opportunity to serve as a coach and consultant to Dentists in a variety of practice situations. There are many different successful formats of practice and Gary works with each client to identify their goals and then designs solutions to achieve those goals. Gary has a number of clients that own multiple practices and have created an excellent business model that does not require the owner Dentist to do most of the work. Dentistry is fundamentally different from other businesses in that the success of the practice is largely dependent on the owner/Dentists production. However, another business model is to own multiple practices. Today we have Dr. Don Wyatt as a special guest on the Thriving Dentist Show. Dr. Wyatt is a client of Gary’s and a young Dentist who not only has a vision for owning multiple practices, but is successfully doing that right now! We are excited to have Dr. Wyatt on the Show to share his vision and business model with our listeners. Welcome Dr. Wyatt!

This podcast is all about helping you develop a practice that provides personal, professional and financial fulfillment, or as Gary likes to say……a THRIVING practice. When it comes to professional fulfillment I imagine that nothing could be more fulfilling and exciting than helping a patient achieve great health! Today we know that a patient’s dental health is directly related to their overall health. We have known this for some time now, but today the body of scientific evidence is more powerful than ever. Today we know that if a patient has poor oral health they could also have issues with heart disease, stroke diabetes, early-term birth and cancer, among other very serious health issues. The bad bacteria in the mouth is not just in the mouth but it is circulating throughout the entire body, leading to many of these general health issues. Today we are so very fortunate to have Dr. Dan Sindelar as our special guest on the show. Dr. Sindelar is the co-founder of the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health and he is a leader in connecting the dental world with the medical world. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Sindelar is absolutely passionate about helping his patients achieve great health! Welcome Dr. Sindelar!

If you have been following Gary’s ‘Airplane Wing Photos’ on facebook, you recently noticed some stunning photos of Key West and the Florida Keys where Gary spoke at the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (ACE) Mastermind Event. This event was a fabulous learning opportunity for Dentists and the entire Team and it was one of Gary’s speaking highlights of 2012. Two principles that Gary feels is necessary to become a Thriving Dentist is the concept of being part of a community and the idea of having FUN! Let me address the concept of community first. The truth is that dentistry can be hard work and it’s not unusual for Dentists to feel a sense of isolation as they practice their profession. Being part of a broader community of like-minded Dentists is SO important because that community can provide a connection to reduce the sense of isolation. Today we are very fortunate to have Dr. Mike Maroon (or Dr. Mike as he prefers) as a Special Guest on the Thriving Dentist Show. Dr. Mike is one of the founders of ACE and has been a leader in the dental profession for over two decades. Dr. Mike also provides a powerful example of someone who believes in the spirit of community and the idea of having fun.

The listeners of the Thriving Dentist Show know that we embrace technology as one of the elements of a thriving dental practice. This is such a fabulous time to be in the dental profession, in part because of the truly amazing technology that allows you to help patients in ways that just were not possible even just a short time ago. One such technology is CEREC CAD/CAM Dentistry. This technology allows you to provide one-visit restorations to your patients that are of amazing quality, with the added benefit of reducing your outside lab expenses. Today we are very fortunate to have Dr. Sameer Puri as a Special Guest on the Thriving Dentist Show. Dr. Puri is the Director of CAD CAM at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry and he is the co-founder of www.cerecdoctors.com, a website devoted to online education where Dentists can learn the details of CEREC dentistry from basic training to more advanced topics such as anterior restorations and implant restorations. The website has become the standard of CEREC training and is the largest online CEREC resource in the world. We are very excited to have Dr. Puri on the Thriving Dentist Show today to share his passion and knowledge with our listeners.

While many of our listeners will think of CEREC technology as ‘new’ technology, in fact the technology was introduced some 27 ½ years ago! While there have been some really incredible advances in every aspect of this technology in the past 27 years, the foundation was established over 27 years ago. While Gary & Dr. Puri and going to talk in detail about this technology, I want to emphasize the tremendous patient benefit of a SINGLE VISIT!!! This is absolutely HUGE in the mind of the patient and can be a real practice builder.
