This week on the podcast I had a great conversation with Dr. Drew Byrnes.

Dr. Drew Byrnes is a family and cosmetic dentist in Winter Park, FL, a graduate of the University of Florida College of Dentistry and a Central Florida native. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Dental Society of Greater Orlando and the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce. He believes in treating people the way that he would want to be treated.

We talked about a topic that so many dentists are interested in which is trading a fee for service.

We discussed:

  • The story that’s led Drew to where he is today including why he bought his practice only one year out of dental school
  • Drew’s website and why it’s important to show people in your community who you are and the importance of branding
  • Buying a practice and how important it can be to make changes gradually so that you don’t alienate your current patient base
  • How to build a reputation and market your practice
  • Differentiating yourself as a fee for service dental practice
  • Drew’s free Facebook group for dentists interested in fee for service dentistry
  • What to do when patients call the practice and ask if you take their insurance
  • Why Drew has decided that he wants to pursue fee for service dentistry for his whole career
  • Drew’s new podcast to help other people pursue fee for service dentistry

I really encourage everyone to go take a look at Drew’s great website – the branding and the message that he tells is amazing – click here.
