In this episode Dr Stanley shares his foundational treatment philosophy, "No Half Smiles", and explains why it is so important to learn how to say "No" to your patients that seek only to come to the dentist for a quick fix.
By practising comprehensive dentistry founded on an integrative approach to biology, mechanics and later aesthetics, you can not just deliver good dentistry but actually have a serious impact in your patients healthcare.
Too many dentists around the world are focused on quick fix dentistry. The classic, "drill, fill and pay the bill" dentistry. With over 200 Keynote lectures on the topic in more than 50 countries, Dr Stanley has had the opportunity to engage with dentists from all walks of life and inspired them to change their mindset. This formula has proved true for many that have embraced it and it has help them completely change the way they practice dentistry adding immense value to their communities and obviously their business.
No other surgeon in the medical profession, only treats half the problem when treating their patients. It's always all are nothing! Why is it different in dentistry? Why are dentists feeling it's okay to not treat the entire mouth?
Could this be the reason why so many dentists are unhappy, and why so many patients misunderstand the serious impact on dentistry can have in their systemic health when well practised.
