Doing Good While Doing Good: 5 Community Outreach Tips You Can Implement Today
This article was published in the July edition of Dentaltown magazine, in which PDA Team Development Coach Melissa Lowry explores ways dental practices can expand their reach in their own community while doing charitable work. When dental practices engage in community outreach initiatives, they have the opportunity to not only bolster their practice’s reputation but also create meaningful connections with potential patients.
Building An Investment Grade Practice™
DentistryToday.com recently published the article “Building An Investment Grade Practice” written by PDA Co-founder & CEO Dr. Victoria Peterson. In this article, Dr. Peterson writes: According to the ADA, only four percent of dentists are able to retire and maintain their desired lifestyle. Sadly, this process often leads to frustration and burnout.
However, it doesn’t have to be this way. In my humble opinion, the top five percent of dentists are not exceptions when it comes to clinical excellence or compassion for their patients. The distinguishing factor is that they likely had a mentor who helped them navigate the complexities of business development.

The first impression of the dental practice is in the hands of the employee that you have assigned to answer the telephone!

by PDA IGP Business Advisor,
Joanne Miles, DAADOM, RDA
It can be challenging to convince patients to sign up for treatment plans, preventive maintenance, and re-care. It might be the most frustrating feeling knowing a nightmare is going on in a patient’s mouth, but because they aren’t in pain, they refuse treatment. Use storytelling to better explain a patient’s oral health conditions, so they can make better decisions for their health.

The Rise of Team Spirit in the Year of the Phoenix
Last week, PDA received these photos from Drs. Clint and Kelly Euse with the message: “Year of the Phoenix swag my sister made!” Every year Advanced Dentistry by Design embodies PDA’s animal of the year by purchasing things for their team and encouraging them to follow the meaning behind each animal.
This tradition began in 2012 with the year of the Donkey when we were stubborn about providing excellence to our clients. Since then, PDA has been inspired by several animals such as the Yak (2016), Dolphin (2018), Dragonfly (2022), and the Phoenix in 2023.
