In this Thriving Dentist Show, Gary interviews his friend Dr. Mike Barr also known as ‘The Dental Warrior’. As a practicing Dentist for over 25 years, Mike has developed a successful practice in a very competitive area of South Florida. Mike has also been a very early adopter and participant in Dental Forums starting in 1992 with a crude bulletin board for Dentists on Compuserve!
In this practical interview Gary and Mike discuss Mike’s views on PPO’s and why he has chosen to develop a Fee For Service practice, how he has created a successful Fee For Service Practice in a competitive area, Mike’s website marketing tips, online dental forums and how they have changed the profession of dentistry for the better and Mike’s views on the ADA (hint: you won’t want to miss his views on the ADA!). This is an inspiring interview from a real-world Dentist who is passionate about dentistry!

As a dental practice coach, Gary provides guidance for dental professionals on how to create a healthier practice style that lets them deliver excellent patient care while reducing depending on insurance.
More importantly, Gary’s insights are not just based on theory – as a co-owner of a dental practice, he has first-hand experience in making this transformation from a high-volume and low-fee insurance model to a fee-for-service approach that is more sustainable and promotes a patient-centric and financially healthy dental practice, and he is dedicated to sharing this knowledge with other dental practitioners via the popular Thriving Dentist Show!
