155. Improve your Dental Business by Leveraging Digital Services – Millennial Dentists Podcast

In this episode of the Millennial Dentist Podcast, Dr. Sully Sullivan discusses a pressing issue in dentistry: dentists often abdicate rather than delegate responsibilities, leading to inefficient practices. Joined by Brett Wilson from Digital Doc, they explore how leveraging digital technology and improving patient communication can enhance case acceptance and allow dentists to focus on more profitable, fulfilling procedures. They emphasize the importance of photography, financial options, and strategic communication to avoid the “crown of the year club” and instead offer comprehensive care.

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.
