Today's episode of T-Bone Speaks, we are joined by one of our trainers, Dr Benjamin Nemec. Benjie as we fondly call him, is our trainer here at 3D Dentist for our Maximum CEREC program. He's got 18 years of practice which means we are in good hands in terms of experience and the knowledge that he's acquired over the years. We'll be discussing a lot of interesting issues including strategies and techniques in maximizing technology in our practice.

Key Takeaways You'll Learn From this Episode:

  • Why you need to always ask the question, just because we can, should we?
  • You'll learn some tips on how to use CEREC's fullest potential
  • Why your practice should focus on patient relationships
  • How Benjie built a thriving practice even if he's not accepting insurance
  • It takes having a relationship and it takes having a conversation to be able to find out what patients really want
  • Why you should consider offering flexible payment plans 
  • The role of mindset in a successful practice
  • Why establishing those relationships and knowing the questions to ask are keys to a great practice
  • Why patients need to have ownership of their mouth
  • The biggest underutilized feature of CEREC - articulation
  • If you cram that into a time that you're in a hurry then it's not going to be about the patient at that point in time.
