What would make YOU stand out and be sought out as a Dentist?

I’m sure you understand that now, more than ever, you need to stand out and be able to offer not only EXCELLENCE, but also DIFFERENCE. In this sluggish economy, where there is a perception of “financial doom”, (I personally don’t believe in that.), dental consumers have a tight hold on their wallets and reports of dental service acceptance show a concerning drop.

What would make YOU stand out and be sought out?
WHAT ‘UNIQUENESS” ARE PATIENTS LOOKING FOR TODAY?
9-11-14 How_to_create_your_Uniqueness_in_the_Market_Place_1
What are YOU doing now to offer a unique service? Your First Class Service and Patient Engagement are expected as basic “givens”. But what is your clinical niche?
Are YOU the dental practice they must go to? Are you the only practice around that offers “invisible” braces, or mini-implant dentures or Nutritional Analysis ?  Are you the “Holistic Dentist”, the “Soft Tissue Management Dentist”, the “Snooze Dentist”,  the “Snore Dentist”? Are you the “Sleep Dysfunction Dentist”?
EVOLUTION OF DENTAL DEMAND
Remember how it was about 20 years ago when teeth whitening (aka “bleaching”) was the “new kid on the block”- THE “HOT BUTTON”? If you had an “in-office” Bright Smile or Zoom machine, you could schedule an operatory all day long with patients from near and far. After that we had the “porcelain age of dentistry”, when the media made patients very image-conscious for “smile enhancements” at any cost while the public was more confident in the future of the economy . Teeth whitening is now offered in nearly every practice, and in most as a discounted loss leader. Cosmetic crowns and veneers are now a lower patient priority.
Implants were the next rage in dental attractions. Today most dental practices are offering implants.
SO, WHERE ARE WE NOW?
What would make YOU stand out and be sought out?
 9-11-14 UNIQUE BULB
Dental Sleep Medicine is where Teeth Whitening was 20 years ago.
It is the “hot button” where Implant Dentistry was 10 years ago.

It is reported that less than 4% of practicing Dentists are able to assist the more than 50 million people who suffer from sleep apnea. There is a growing public awareness of the hazards that come from a nocturnal stoppage of breathing. Your patients are becoming increasingly more concerned about the blockage of oxygen to the brain and other organs. Strokes. Heart attacks. Diabetes. As a Care Giver, think of how you can serve.  Serve an unfilled need.

“I’m thinking of taking the Dental Sleep Medicine training.”

How many great ideas have you had in your life that were exciting… seemed important to you… that had to be done… that could improve the world….that could improve YOUR world?  You thought about it, talked to confidants about it, put it off day after day and then, fssst! Gone! Forgotten, or worse, watched someone else do it and get the credit for it. You’re in good company; we are all procrastinators to some degree.  Me, too.
thinkerWhen there’s a good idea, it’s in “the air”.  A lot of people will think of it at the same time; but the person that takes action will be called the genius.   DSM is one of those “ideas”… it may be the best one you will have. There is a DSM bandwagon- JUMP ON IT!

★Treating sleep problems can eliminate attention and hyperactivity issues for some children.★

ADHD and Sleep Apnea are often misdiagnosed. The symptoms are so similar. Have your child evaluated for possible Sleep Apnea to ensure the proper diagnosis and treatment.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is linked with a variety of sleep problems. For example, one recent study found that children with ADHD had higher rates of daytime sleepiness than children without ADHD. Another study found that 50% of children with ADHD had signs of sleep disordered breathing, compared to only 22% of children without ADHD. Research also suggests that restless legs syndrome and periodic leg movement syndrome are also common in children with ADHD.

5-7-14 adhd

Sleep Apnea can affect school performance. One recent study suggests that some kids diagnosed with ADHD actually have attention problems in school because of disrupted sleep patterns caused by obstructive sleep apnea.

A common type of apnea in children, obstructive apnea (OSA), is caused by an obstruction of the airway (such as enlarged tonsils and adenoids). This is most likely to happen during sleep because that’s when the soft tissue at back of the throat is most relaxed. As many as 1% to 3% of otherwise healthy preschool-age kids have obstructive apnea. Enlarged tonsils and adenoids are the most common causes of sleep apnea in children.

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a term used to describe hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and/or impulsivity. It is a common condition that begins in childhood and may persist into adulthood. Children with ADHD typically have trouble sitting still, staying focused, and/or controlling their behavior and emotions, which can lead to lower social skills, isolation, dependence, and poor performance in school. For this reason, children with ADHD often require special attention from parents, teachers, school systems and healthcare and mental health professionals in order to succeed.

In general, sleep deprivation is a problem among children in America. According to NSF’s Sleep in America poll, more than two-thirds of children experience one or more sleep problems at least a few nights a week. For children with ADHD, poor sleep (too little sleep or symptoms of sleep disorders) may profoundly impact ADHD symptoms. In fact, one study found that treating sleep problems may be enough to eliminate attention and hyperactivity issues for some children.

12-10-13 EC FRENCH Q

 

Keep your child healthy and beautiful

If you suspect that your child has sleep apnea, call your doctor. Search for a dentist or physician who is trained and certified in the screening and treatment of Sleep Apnea. Although prolonged pauses in breathing can be serious, after a doctor does a complete evaluation and a diagnosis is made, most cases of apnea can be treated or managed.
