Shifting from a general dentistry practice to one specializing in cosmetic dentistry will take time, commitment and–yes–money. A cosmetic dentist cannot be truly successful without a willingness to dedicate the time and money necessary to keep up on new technology, purchase the latest equipment and take courses on new procedures. Practitioners must have the knowledge and the technology to perform the services being sold.
* Stick to what you know best. Many cosmetic dentists are attempting to increase their income by offering Botox and other ancillary cosmetic services. But this can confuse patients, making them wonder what your specialty–and dedication–really is. Why perform services outside your field, when there are more people out there who need cosmetic dentistry than you will be able to see in a lifetime? Invest in yourself and your cosmetic dentistry practice, and you will find that your rewards will be much greater in the long run.
As dentists, we are fortunate to have the technology to transform our patients’ smiles. But in order to leave the old notions of dentistry behind and attract patients to the possibilities open to them by cosmetic dentistry, practitioners must begin by transforming their practices.
Best Mokena Dentist -This is a wonderful time to practice cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic procedures, in general, have gained mass acceptance recently due to shows such as “Extreme Makeover” and the “The Swan.” No longer is cosmetic surgery viewed as just for the rich and famous. But even the best facelift, liposuction job or hair transplant won’t mask a mouthful of misshapen, stained, or missing teeth.
