There’s been a rising trend over the last few years of big corporate entities gobbling up almost every practice in town…

Leaving the few remaining dental practices to dry up without a big ad spend budget, awareness, and marketing strategies.

How can the “little man” survive??

I’ve always been a fan of the little guy, and honestly, I don’t really like the fact that these corporations come in and push everyone around.

That’s why I brought on today’s guest, Trevor Maurer from Smile Source, to share his efforts to take on corporate dentistry.

Smile Source gives solo dental practice owners the benefits of a group practice while remaining fiercely independent. As the Smile Source site puts it:

We are also dedicated to preserving the elite business of independent dental care and providing highly personalized services delivered through a unique heritage of shared expertise.

  • The surprising statistics that are changing are pushing the retirement age back and making dentistry competitive
  • The HUGE financial and marketing benefits that come with group practices
  • The legal dangers of oversharing with other local dentists (and the smart thing that Smile Source does to avoid repercussions)
  • Why you should be saying “no” to certain patients
  • What “cooperative advertise” is and the benefits of taking advantage of it
