Is There Some Hanky Panky Going On In My Office?

By | Episodes | No Comments

Today’s episode features a very difficult situation. The doctor and several team members suspect there is a little “hanky panky” going on between the associate doctor and one of the staff. Can anything be done without absolute proof? It’s a tough one, and The Dental Practice Fixers (Dr. Richard Madow and Dr. David Madow) do their best to give some advice. Then we go to the “Call of The Week.” A potential new patient calls because they are concerned about some clicking in their jaw. You will not believe what happens! Let’s just say you’ll be laughing until you cry, then you will just be crying! If you have a question that you would like answered on our podcast, please send it in to podcast@madow.com. We will do our best to get yours answered!

The Very Best Secret Shopper Calls

By | Episodes | No Comments

During Season One, we had so many comments from our listeners saying they absolutely LOVE what we are doing and that The Dental Practice Fixers is their favorite dental podcast of all time! Well as nice as that was, to take it a step further, many said the dental secret shopper calls were their favorite segment and begged us to do more than one call per episode.

So for Season Two, we will be stepping up the calls, and even though we cannot guarantee more than one call per show, the calls themselves will take a different twist from Season One! So in advance of Season Two beginning, we have decided to compile the best calls from Season One in a single episode and give them to you right here for easy listening access. Feel free to use them at a team meeting or for anything else you may want them for. And get ready for the beginning of Season Two starting with the very next episode! Please feel free to rate us and review us on iTunes. Every little bit helps! Thanks for being a part of The Dental Practice Fixers, perhaps the most unique podcast in all of dentistry!

One of the biggest problems we have been seeing over the years is that most dental practices are not “calibrated.” What does this mean? It means that your patients are not getting consistent accurate information, especially when a question is asked. This could lead to treatment NOT getting on the books because patients are confused. In this episode The Dental Practice Fixers will show you exactly how to calibrate for success and profitability.  And of course we start each show with a great money making tip for you and end with our “Call of the Week!” Please join us!
