Teresa Duncan explores the dental business from behind-the-scenes of the industry to tackling management and business issues in the office. Frequent co-host Kevin Henry throws in his viewpoint. We don't want you to ever be in positions where you find yourself saying "Nobody Told Me That!"

Dr. Etchison is a former client but I can’t take the credit. The man is motivated and super-smart about the dental business side. I’m not talking about the numbers – he knows systems and how to be a good boss. Listen in as we talk about:

  • How documenting processes save him so much time. Teams change but how we treat our patients doesn’t.
  • He’s retaining team members. He knows he’s in a good spot but he shares how he worked through the struggles.
  • How much does he utilize the assistant and how do you get them to that level?
  • Four handed dentistry is not that prevalent and it’s a damn shame. Watch an example of it here (complete with slow jazz!)
  • Business round up: he’s transparent with the team and believes in upping the production number rather than hyper-focusing on the expenses.
  • What would we bring on a tropical island? Floss or coconut husk? (It cuts out a bit here – apologies!)
  • What are we watching? Paul gives OA a mind-blowing thumbs up.
  • We did get cut off here and I apologize for that! Please go check out Paul’s info – he’s a great guy with great info!
