Disruptive Dental Practice Growth: “From The Roots Up”

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

Endodontics continues to be one of the hottest ways to grow your dental practice. Learning to treat the emergency patient, or convenience patient can play a big part of your dental practice growth. Data from OnCall Dental Urgent Care shows that 38% of the population haven’t seen a dentist in the past 5 years for 4 reasons. The top 2 procedures in Urgent dental care are: root canal therapy and extractions. A unique way dentists can tap into dental practice growth is by improving the way they attract, treat and retain the emergency patient and convenience patient.

Many dentists are experiencing the dreaded open chair syndrome or holes in their schedules. Root canal procedures can be the answer to fixing this syndrome. Improved apex locators, irrigation and disinfection techniques, new biocompatible sealers and obturation predictability makes the attraction to do root canals very high. Discount niiti rotary files are making it more affordable and profitable to do root canals correctly and efficiently. Soon we will see a one file rotary system that truly works.   Also, is it possible that a no file root canal is on the horizon?   Ninja accesses and endodontic dentin conservation protocols will be the rage. How do you as the general dentist keep up with the changing endodontic landscape unfolding right before your eyes and use it to your advantage for practice growth?

Fill the chairs through Social media. It has proven to be a vehicle to unlock and reach the 38%.

It will be come more and more important to find ways such as SEO, Adwords and platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to make sure we set ourselves apart as the social media experts. The 38% will search for their dentists and procedures needed online. Then of course, they will be sharing their experiences, which gives us reason to protect our google and yelp ratings. A good root canal review can help build our practices, but a bad one can kill it.   How do we make sure from the roots up we optimize our root canal procedures and provide the highest quality in endodontic care?

General dentists should do root canals to grow their practices, however, they cannot fall victim to poor out comes because of case selection and case management. Patients are getting smarter and will continue to demand better root canal outcomes and efficient easy procedures.

Learning objectives:
1) Create a basic understanding of how emergency, unscheduled and convenient care patients can help grow your practice through better root canal therapy protocols and skills.
2) Discover the advantages of improved endodontic diagnosis and technology to create peace of mind for you and your patients.

Piezoelectric instruments are not new to the general dentist however there is a widening use of these instruments beyond scaling teeth. These devices offer a safe, precise, atraumatic and bloodless method to perform oral surgery with less effort.

Safe, predictable, atraumatic oral surgery, root canal procedures, implant placements and conservative tooth preparations make this technology useful for general dentists. General dentists using this technology are finding more peace of mind, preciseness, patient acceptance and profits.
