154. Achieve Better Dental Practice Outcome – Millennial Dentist Podcast

In this episode of The Millennial Dentist podcast, Dr. Sully Sullivan talks about how making changes in your dental practice can lead to better success. He explains that if you want your practice to run differently and achieve better outcomes, you need to change how you do things. This includes offering comprehensive patient financing, using better diagnostic tools, improving communication with patients, and adjusting your scheduling. By doing so, you can move from simple, insurance-based dentistry to more complex and profitable procedures. Dr. Sullivan also shares insights from the 3D Treatment Planning course and introduces the new 3D Dentists app, which provides helpful resources and courses

Who is Dr. Sully Sullivan?

Dr. Sully is a fourth-generation dentist from Nashville, Tn. After receiving his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Tennessee, he moved back to Nashville to practice with his father. By continuing to invest in his education through adult orthodontics, soft tissue grafting, dental implants, third molar extractions, and obstructive sleep apnea, he helped double his practice in just 24 months.

As a millennial, he truly believes in working smarter not harder, which has led him to utilize technology to not only deliver better patient care but more efficient care. Dr. Sullivan regularly uses CEREC, 3D imaging with Galileos, 3D printing, and multiple lasers. In addition to his practice, he started the Millennial Dentist Podcast in February of 2017 to help push his fellow colleagues to take their dental careers to the next level. Dr. Sully lectures around the country on cone beam technology, cad/cam dentistry, obstructive sleep apnea, and practice management. He is also an ambassador for the 3D-Dentist teaching facility in Raleigh, NC.
