Key Quotes:

  • “Our well-intentioned, intellectual dentist brain loves to present logical, feature-rich arguments focusing on the technical excellence of our services, yet our patients, driven by emotional and sometimes irrational motivations, are looking for something entirely different.”
  • “In the busy day-to-day of a dental practice, one pivotal question often goes unanswered. What is the result or solution your patient is truly seeking, and what relief do they gain from it?”
  • “Stop selling logic. Instead, offer results, solutions, and relief. This mantra should become the cornerstone of how we communicate with our patients.”
  • “Consumers are transforming faster than we are, and if we don’t catch up, we are in trouble.”
  • “By understanding and addressing the diverse motivations of your patients, you position your practice not just as a provider of dental services, which kind of lumps you into a commodity, but as a partner in achieving their personal health and wellness goals.”
