147. How to Optimize Scheduling, Better Patient Experiences and Skyrocket Revenue

In this episode of Millennial Dentists Podcast, I talk about the implementation of Expanded Function Dental Assistants (EFDAs) into practice to support the One-Column Model as a system for streamlining operations. Moreover, we discuss how planning appointment visits contributes to delivering quality patient care and why it’s worthwhile to use standard photography for educational and self-improvement purposes. Finally, we dive into the topic of strategic scheduling that can help with increasing revenue and also emphasize how essential skills enhancement remains an integral part of career success in the long run.

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.
