This new feature, promoted in print and online, is designed to offer quick bites for team development and practice success. We highlight best practices and best products in Top 3, Top 5 and Top 7 lists so that you can take the advice and be nimble in integrating into your practice.

1.
An optimized website

The Yellow Pages are yesterday’s news, and it’s not enough to come up on healthpages.com. Yelp reviewers may be eager to define you, but your site helps you tell your story so that patients choose you.

2.
Digital communication


Text and email are the preferred method of contact for many. A reminder phone call offers a personal touch, but electronic communication is a major benefit.

3.
Digital radiography


Less radiation, greater comfort and quicker results than film. Once patients have gone digital, they’ll never go back - don’t be left behind.

4.
Engaging patient education


Banish the brochure! There are many fantastic, high-tech options that cover hundreds of topics in a consistent, engaging way that ensures patients pay attention.

5.
Minimally invasive products

...and procedures! The medical model is seeping into dentistry,
so do your research on how certain prevention models or high-tech options such as lasers can help you deliver higher quality care.

6.
Esthetic restorative options

Even if you are still a proponent for amalgam over composite, your patients demand the more esthetic option. Do some digging and find out what solution meets your standards for durability while maintaining the patient’s desire for esthetics.

7.
A quality go-to whitening solution


Weddings, graduation, interviews, a big date - situations arise and patients want to look their very best. Be ready with a whitening option you trust.
