#1 The Dental Maverick

This book is an excellent tool for a solo practitioner or for an owner with multiple practices. My office morale and production increased and the energy has been amazing. If you want to learn the secrets of a successful practice, the 'Dental Maverick' is the way to start.

#2 Chicken Soup for the Dental Soul

This is a heartwarming book not only for dentists but for patients in the waiting room. Dental practices can be community hubs, where long-term relationships are established, memories are shared, and plenty of laughs can be heard throughout the day. This book shows the human side of a dental practice.

#3 If Disney Ran Your Hospital + The New Gold Standard

Both books teach principles that can be applied in any business that is focused on providing a great customer experience. A patient’s assessment of any dental office is based on the experience they have. It is difficult for a patient to know the quality of the dental work provided, but they certainly know how the doctor and team made them feel. Did everyone at the office work to keep them comfortable? Did they truly listen to their concerns and goal? Do they feel valued and appreciated? If we can do these simple things, we are likely to have a satisfied patient that refers family and friends.

#5 Everything Is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth

Fred Joyal started 1-800 dentist and provides some unique insights to how we can create patients for life. The book addresses the usual marketing channels, but really focuses on creating an awesome patient experience, which drives word of mouth and patient loyalty. Highly recommend this book.

#6 The Dip

After what seems like an eternity of schooling and a mountain of college debt, a fresh-faced dentist has to then face the sudden reality of starting or buying a practice, learning to operate a business, and most likely building a family, buying a house, and figuring out where to settle down for a couple decades. It's a monumental (and deeply expensive) challenge, and there are many times where it feels good to just give up. The Dip illustrates how most people give up or quit their endeavors right at the worst moment, after much of the work is already done. It's a good read for any dentist.
