Get Better Treatment Acceptance by Finding Someone’s Joy Point

March 12, 2021

We’re taught in dentistry to find someone’s pain point. But what if we focus on the joy point instead?

Pain points in life and in dentistry are things you’re running away from. Joy points are much more motivating and should be where all our focus is. A joy point is running towards something you like; it energizes you and it can help you.

When you find something in your patients mouth that needs work, are you talking in corrective/clinical terms about fixing that bad thing? Or are you showing them the benefits of having it fixed? Having this mindset shift on how to communicate with your patients can complete change the situation for the better. Focus on their joy points rather than the pain points.

3 Steps for Building a Profitable Dental Practice of Your Dreams with Steve Anderson

March 5, 2021

When building a dental practice, being profitable is always one of the main goals. Steve Anderson is with us today to discuss 3 steps to get you there:

1. FISTS (FICO score, Intelligent spending, Satisfy passion, Time for relationships, Savings)

2. Real Estate Broker

3. Accountable Professionals

Build a solid foundation so that you can build the profitable dental practice of your dreams!

In everything he does, DentalEase author Steve Anderson loves to impact others and leave a lasting legacy of improvement. For dentists, that means showing them how to renovate or construct the dental practice of their dreams, save at least ten thousand dollars in the process, and build a dental practice that is stress-free and profitable. The result of 30 years of passionate effort, the DentalEase program is Steve’s not-so-secret weapon to practice perfection, and he’s here to share his method  s with the world.

His singular goal is to make any dentist’s dream practice a reality. Starting his construction career in 1984, he has specialized in building dental offices since 1997 through his company Denco Dental Construction Inc. In that time he worked with over 1,000 dentists, assisting them in designing and building the dental office they have always dreamed of owning and practicing in. Anderson is the only general contractor in Arizona who is endorsed by the Arizona Dental Association. He also provides CE credits for seminars which he teaches at dental schools and special engagements.

His new book, DentalEase: The Essential Guide to Creating the Stress-Free and Profitable Dental Practice of Your Dreams, is a detailed written account of his expert knowledge on the subject. The goal of this essential guide is to assist dentists in making educated decisions effortlessly and minimizing the painful (and expensive) lessons many experience.

Steve knows how to create a dream dental practice from the ground up, literally, so dentists can achieve their goal in their practice that fits their vision. He knows first-hand how hard it is for dentists to figure out where to start or how to build the practice they envision on their own. Dentists have found the guide they’ve been looking for, calling DentalEase, “An incredible encyclopedia on how to attain success.”
