New Dentists Talk About What Went Into Building Their Dream Practice

New Dentists Talk About What Went Into Building Their Dream Practice

The New Dentist News (8/19) reports that Drs. Kimberley Barclay and Lauren Jacobsen “know a little something about how to build an innovative practice.” The new dentists, “based on their Texas practice Toothbar, were the winners in the ‘new build’ category in the inaugural 2019 Design Innovation Awards.” In the New Dentist News Q&A, the practice partners outlined how they decided what equipment to invest in for their new build, including high-quality dental chairs and delivery systems, an intraoral scanner, intraoral cameras and a build-in nitrous delivery system. “In purchasing new equipment for the practice, it’s so easy to get caught up in the price tag and wonder if you really need it. The mentality of, ‘Oh, I can just take impressions and I don’t want to have to train my team on how to use a scanner,’ coupled with a hefty price tag, can easily sway you against whether or not you need a particular scanner. The reality to consider is what benefits will come out of it beyond the obvious. Not only are you saving time and resources on material, the patient experience is the greatest asset. We want patients to walk out of our practice with something memorable so that when a friend asks them for a dentist recommendation, they can chime in with, ‘Yes, I go to Toothbar and they do this 3D scan of your teeth and you get to see everything up close and you don’t need those messy molds — they’ve got the latest technology.’”

        Is your practice newly built or remodeled? Enter the 2020 ADA Design Innovation Awards now through Sept. 4 to win $1,000 and have your dental office featured in ADA publications. There are three categories: large new build, small new build and remodel (construction must have been completed in the past three years, after June 2017).
