An expert is defined as a person who has a special skillset or knowledge in some particular field; somebody who is a specialist or an authority in that field. In addition, someone is only an expert if he or she can deliver on their special skills. Having special training or holding a specific status does not necessarily make someone an expert. It's all about results!
A true expert should always consider ALL the following: TRAINING, KNOWLEDGE, PRACTICE and EXPERIENCE, and finally EQUIPMENT.
Also, one must never forget that it takes more than just the Doctor to be the expert.
In this presentation, Dr. Nguyen will methodically discuss what it would take for ANYONE who is self-motivated to become a “Comm-Endo” ... without being an endodontist. Clinical cases and videos will be used to discuss what general dentists and endodontists alike should be able to master in order to EXPERTLY serve their patients.
Upon completion of the session, attendees shall be able to
- Understand what makes one an expert without being an Endodontist
- Discern which equipment to include in their armamentarium and which not to invest in
- Understand how to incorporate their Team in providing expert care
- Integrate foundational concepts of how to increase fees while INCREASING patients flow
- Learn effective marketing strategies to stand out locally and on the web, as an expert in Endodontics
