149. Dental Practice Growth: Review, Marketing & Social Media – Millennial Dentist Podcast

In this trio episode of the Millennial Dentists Podcast, Eric, Tarun, and I talk about how you could effectively grow your dental practice if you feel it slowing down.

We advocate for the philosophy of ‘slow down to speed up,’ though we acknowledge that growth isn’t always linear. However, it should never be stagnant. There are ways to improve your growth small steps at a time. Multiple strategies like: Marketing, Referrals, Social Media, and Google reviews were mentioned in this episode. These steps are essential for resurfacing your practice and increasing revenue.

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.
