I’m thrilled to introduce you all to my special guest, Scott Hansen, for a mind-blowing discussion that teaches you how your dental practice can start integrating live chats into your marketing strategy.

Scott Hansen is the founder and CEO of DentistChats, a leading professionally managed website chat service exclusively for dentists. Since 2016, the company has grown from just one to more than 100 employees and is recognized as one of the 100 fastest growing businesses in the country.

After a short one-year stint as a professional soloist and chorister with a Grammy award winning choir, Scott began working with his family’s dental practice in Kansas City. As the Practice Director, he immediately started implementing innovative marketing and sales systems. Over four years, and while earning his MBA, Scott earned his family’s practice consecutive awards as one of the fastest growing businesses in the country. The practice was among the first in the country to adopt clear aligners as a long-term strategy and use technology, like online chat, to attract new patients in innovative ways.

On the podcast we discussed:

  • Scott’s story – how he went from singing with an award-winning choir to working with his family’s dental practice and transforming it into one of the fastest growing businesses in the country
