Gary answers a ton of listener questions about his past show guests.

  1. Gary, in your interview with Dr. Pitts on Dentistry as a Team Sport, he mentioned that you have monthly team meetings and also quarterly team meetings. Can you share the format for these meetings?
  2. Dr. Pitts talked about how his office uses two-way radios for intra-office communication. Do you recommend this for all your clients?
  3. Dr. Brady talked about how she uses four digital photos with her new patients and I read in your blog that you use 6 photos in your office. Can you define the six photos you use?
  4. Dr. Brady talked about how she prints the photos four up to a page and gives them to her patients. Should we be printing our photos?
  5. Fred Joyal emphasized the importance of seeing new patients within a day or 2 of their first call. How can we do this when I am scheduled out about 1-2 weeks in advance?
  6. Fred talks about the telephone as the most important piece of equipment in the office & I agree. Can you offer telephone tips for the new patient call?
  7. Jack Hadley really helped me understand how I might use social media. How much time should I devote to this project to keep it manageable?
  8. Gary, can you give me some examples of how you are using social media in your practice?
