Reduce Your Insurance Dependency & Attract Ideal Patients Who Know, Like & Trust You For The Care You Provide!
The first three steps to successfully dropping PPO Plans at your dental practice require you to assess how many patients, on average, are on your insurance plans and then attract ideal patients to replace them as you go out of network.
At Life Smiles, we spent less than 1.4% of our annual revenue on marketing to consistently attract over 90+ new patients through a Done-For-You Digital Marketing solution through Ekwa Marketing.
Ekwa has a special team that understands exactly how to work with you to help you reduce insurance dependence at your practice!

I Hold My Breath Waiting for Each Show....
After being in dentistry for over 20 years, sometimes you think you've heard it all! BUT I have had not only the pleasure of listening to Gary and his guests (which cover all of our roles in the dental profession), I have also had the honor of being his guest twice.
I love how he brings so many different talents from doctors to marketing gurus and from office managers, hygienists, and assistants. If there is a role to be a part of, Gary has had wonderfully qualified people in dentistry give great information!
I was frustrated with the corporate world of dentistry after 4 years of working and needed to break free. I purchased my own practice probably a little bit faster than I was ready for and have had challenges to accomplish.
Finding Gary Takacs's Thriving Dentist Show has given me great ideas, confidence and strength to continue to develop my ideal practice.
I'm nowhere near my final goals, but I look deep into the weeds of these 180+ shows and find new gems every day!
Thank you Gary, your work is priceless!
Gary Is The Authority In Dentistry
I've been following Gary for quite some time and I am impressed by the "tribe" he's built around the world of dentistry. There is no doubt that this man knows his stuff. I'm not a dentist myself. However, I have personally interacted with those who follow Gary and they have nothing but amazing things to say about him and what he does.
What I can tell you personally, is that Gary cares! I know Gary as a podcast and new media consultant. When it comes to connecting with folks online, he's one of the best! So many professionals feel like they don't have time to build relationships with "people online." Gary goes the extra mile because he knows whether you are face to face or someone he's met online, the fact, we're all real people.
Check out Gary's show, reach out to him, online, and see for yourself!
