Buckle up because in this article, you’re going to find out who’s the best dentist in the world at the moment. If you didn’t hear about this in time, I’m sorry, the competition is closed and the winner has been picked. Before I announce the winner, I’m going to tell you a bit about the judging process so that you have an insight into becoming the best dentist.
What makes the best dentist?
We need to work out what we’re going to judge on. We could judge on the practice that he or she works in. If the practice is all fancy pants with TVs on the wall, the dentist who works there must be pretty awesome. And while we’re on the subject of practices, maybe we should take into account if the dentist owns the business. That’s surely going to put them in the running to be the best of their profession.
We could judge on the amount of training that a dentist has had. How many letters does she have after her name? How many courses has he done? This is also going to help us to judge clinical ability.
It’s really tough to work out what makes the best dentist. In fact it’s impossible unless you come at it from another angle.
Who is judging?
It becomes a lot easier to work out what defines the best dentist when you decide who is judging and who’s opinion really matters. It’s actually not anyone within dentistry. The people who are judging you every day are your patients.
It’s your patients’ opinions that really matter. So what’s important to them?
Your patients want to feel that you care for them. They want to feel that you take an interest in them, listen to them. Patients want to be treated as individuals. They want to know that they are your first priority while they sit in your chair. Of course, they expect your treatments to work but that is only part of the picture. If you focus on what is important to your patients, you become the best dentist in the world.
I don’t know how many patients you have but you can only treat so many. If 500 people think you are an incredible dentist, that’s probably all you need.
So here’s the big reveal… Who’s the best dentist in the world?
It’s you. Or at least it could be if you simply focus on the only judges that matter. What is important to your patients?
