"american dental association" Discussed on The Thriving Dentist Show with Gary Takacs
"5 patients you enjoy taking care of. And goal number 6, treatment mix that gives you satisfaction. Those are the 6 goals. Now, I think any of our listeners would say that if I ask them, hey, imagine yourself having achieved all of those 6 goals. How would you feel? What do you think most Dennis would say if I asked him to, you know, maybe they have to think about it conceptually in their head because they're not there yet. But if they could achieve all 6 of those goals, how would they feel? What do you think most Dennis would say? I know, they would say I had a great life. I enjoy every day, you know? It's like get to do what I love to do. I get to go to work with people I enjoy. I get to take care of people I enjoy taking care of. I get to do the kind of dentistry that is my passion, but it's a high value services health center dentistry. And I don't have to work because I have to. But I work because I choose to, in other words, financially, okay, whether I go to my work or not. So this is like a passion project. I think they would say I indeed have a thriving practice if I could achieve all of those 6 goals. And a thriving life, I might add, you know, yeah. So let's kind of get a little bit more granular with each and every one of them. The first one, overhead, no higher than 60%, ideally 50%. Now, what is overhead? Overhead is all of the necessary expenses to run your practice with the exception of owner Dennis compensation. On a dentist's compensation. So now, 50% is achievable today, but I'm going to say it's very, very, very difficult. Yep, you can get it. You mean 50%. Okay. 50%, 50% is achievable. It is possible. But it's very much an outlier. I have clients in my client base have 50% overhead or less. General dental practice, I want to clarify that that's not especially brand, but general dental practice. But very difficult. Now I can confidently say that every one of our listeners can get their overhead to 60% or less. Again, it's not easy. The ADA, the American dental association reports that the average practice overhead is 74%. If your overhead is 74% means you're working too hard for too little. You deserve better than that. You deserve better than that. And I'm on a passion project to help as many dentists as possible get their overhead to appropriate levels. So they're not feeling like they're the proverbial hamster on the treadmill. The hamster on the wheel. Poll number two, the ability to achieve financial independence from your practice. And the reason I added from your practice, I mean, not from inheritance, not from the lottery. Not from your Bitcoin, you know, exploits. But from your practice. And financial independence to me near and means on a very simple concept. The day that you can go to work because you want to, not because you have to. The day that you can go to work, but you want to know because you have to. Now, technically, from a financial perspective, that would mean the day you had an asset that produced your annual income every year without ever touching the principle because if you end up touching the principle, then that asset won't be returning an ongoing return. But it would be whenever you have an asset that can produce your annual income. Without touching the principal on the asset, then you're technically financially independent. Because your income is coming from another place. So just hypothetically, if your income was $400,000 a year, I'm just making up a number in there. If someone's income was $400,000 a year, then their technically financially independent, when they have an asset that can return $400,000 a year without depleting the original asset. Does that make sense? And that applies in every level. If you're making $20,000 a year, then technically your financial independent when you have an asset that would return $20,000 a year without you touching the principle. You don't need to go to work anymore. You can go because you want to, because you have to. So really, that definition is elastic because it can apply at whatever level you define as your, as your annual income. Meaning your lifestyle, if you need 20,000 to live, that's all you need to be financially independent, but if you need 400,000 to live, then you need something that produces that amount of revenue every year. And sadly, the American I'll come back to the ADA, the American dental association says that in the year 2018, which is the most recent year we have information, only 3% of dentists at age 65 could retire without reducing their lifestyle. Only 3%. That means 97% can not do this. Well, they can, perhaps, but they'd be reduced to their lifestyle to do that. All right. So it's a little different definition. And I'm only using that because that was the actual data from the ADA. So they used it. They defined it a little bit differently. But I personally am on a mission on this one because I believe Dennis deserve better than that. They deserve to be able to retire with dignity. You know, it took a lot of effort to become a dentist at every level. 40 years with the work on top of that, right? And you took risk along the way because you became a practice owner and you risked your capital along the way. You deserve to be able to retire with dignity. You deserve that. And I'm on a mission to help as many Dennis as possible achieve that. And that's not easy.
"american dental association" Discussed on Medicare for All
"But you can't do that. Medicare because medicare has nationally established rates for the whole country. They say this is how much it actually costs providers for this care. We're gonna set a fair rate for the entire country. Obviously the rates. They haven't just minutes for the cost of living in. Different places may be registered for providers in some places than others maybe the cost of staffing and salaries a little bit higher in some places than others but they don't negotiate on prices. They say these are the rates for the whole country. These are fair you can either opt into the system. You have medicare recipients or economic system which she's you. Don't get any medicare at all so dentists at least in the american dental association afraid of having this happened with dental care. They don't want a federally established rates across the whole country. For what is the fair prices. Dental care they want to be able to charge as much as they can for dental care. So it's really all about the money and this is why they are not strongly fighting coverage of preventive care because they don't make money off of cleanings and stuff. That's really just routine stuff to keep a patient in your system. They really make all the money on the big procedures and search surgeries and this may come as a shock to you but the american dental association has actually been fighting since nineteen sixty five since the original enactment of nineteen sixty five.

"That is still probably going to be worse than like the medicare advantage one thousand dollar payout per year. Maybe i think once you get up to fifty percent suddenly maybe then. You're doing a little bit better than medicare advantage is doing but still completely inadequate. You know the folks who wrote in to us who couldn't afford the procedures they really needed if you still have to pay ninety eighty seventy six fifty percent might still not be about afford those same procedures. If they're on a fixed income which many are living off of social security checks which are even up. lobbying by medicare plans obviously. Don't want the bar to be raised in medicare because while first of all they're not going to be able to offer something above and beyond what medicare offers which is going to force them to actually offer even better benefits Which they obviously don't do. So maybe we should just get straight to the politics right so we've delivered a bit of grim news here. Which is that at least on the house side. There are some big wins. I think especially that denver coverage is a is a big win preventive cameras good. But it's not the thing that really is going to bankrupt most people that really are some people's major procedures and surgeries. And of course that is where all the money in the industries that. Why don't we get to the politics of why this is so tough. Yeah other just to say know. The american dental association will call up. Ada it's been mobilizing dentists. All over america to lobby hard were dental coverage not to be included in.

"Got it. So that's the same thing with brominated. Flame retardants where's bromine on the halogenated column. Where's chloride and chlorine halogenated column These halogens are really problematic for the human body because we need certain halogens. That are not those. We need iodine to be actually normally functioning for both ejiofor thyroid for children's Iq as well because we pregnant women actually give their iodine to fetus. They don't make it on. No one makes i nine on their own. It comes from outside the body so we have to be very very careful when we get iodine and not displacing it with halogens like fluoride fluoride breaking work. so that's just one aspect of fluoride is not considered necessary it has reduced dental caries sort of the selling point for the american dental association. There are more better ways to reduce dental caries than adding a chemical into our body that has you know can have reputable damage. You know so. We really want to think about brushing. Our teeth reducing sugar regular dental visits regular cleanings fluoride into pays scar better than adjusting it. Right optical floride sir. I'm not that against.

Texas dentists may give coronavirus vaccines to ease demand
"Want to be able to give covert shots. Dr. Matt Roberts with the Texas Dental Association says it makes sense since they already do shots every day. Absolutely Yes, there are. I think quite a few Dennis that feel like that were qualified to do the vaccine and would like to do the vaccine, he believes adding dentist's office to the list of places people could go for the vaccine would help with spiking demand.

There is store some hot topic on the legal ease like you mentioned before that was a house resolution.

So we're going to have to wait and see what happens with that. And what does this latest with the la on this. They are working with a big last count. I on online was fifty two house members and the american dental association to try to tackle this. But like you mentioned before they're all and you degen as well you know. We need activists. We need people to contact their legislators. Who probably don't know this stuff because again it was in the middle of really trying times when we were busy thinking about other stuff so we don't want this to get washed away and under the rug it become habit. We need to actively get change through our professional organizations and just locally through our legislators.

Dr. Timothy Johnston On Taking Your Customer Service To The Next Level
"A Nice Guy Community welcome back. Welcome back. It is strict on today and you are in for a treat today not just because I'm sitting in for Doug, it's also because I get to talk to Dr Timothy Johnston and award award-winning businessman lecturer published author in dental trade journals his business or dental center is the recipient of several prestigious awards is known for its excellent customer service Yod local community. He is a professional member of numerous Dental Association's personally received the Healthcare Heroes Award, and before you go running the other way because you know you hear dentist let me tell you. We're not talking just about Dennis today. Dr Johnson is also an international bestselling author of Ring Bell for service. He has some brilliant insights into succeeding in any business that depends on customer service. How are you doing today Dr Johnston I'm just fine. Thanks. Thanks for having me in absolutely absolutely, and you know we talk a lot about customer service on the Nice guys on business obviously as a dentist, it's Kinda critical isn't it? It really is and this is interview is not meant to really pertain so much the dental office because I've been doing that for years but one else I've learned from being. In terms of in terms of everything, but really what it means to be a dentist and take that experience. So to speak. I love that and again, your book. Ring Bell for service. It has some really really great insights and I'm sure lots of great ideas that you have realized over thirty years in business So the first one I wanted to touch on that you bring up in the book is, why is the customer not always right? It goes without saying that the customer is not always right. The thing that makes it stand out so much to me is when a customer client customer or anybody comes in and thinks he knows you, he thinks that his his take on the world is what's driving the whole thing. For example guy comes into my office. This is in a chapter in my book and before I can even. Kevin brought to the back. He stands up and he says I need to talk to the doctor right away. And I'm walking Brown and I hear this I step out and I'd say who I am Dr Johnston and I'll be seeing you come back this way we talk about if you like he has no, I need you to come out here. So I, walk out in the waiting room on it I stand there he goes I need to talk to you for minute about this TV. So I look in on TV is just a commercial again you the. Commercial. I don't understand it's commercial for something, and if you WANNA, come back, we could talk about not discuss it in front of these other patients here. He has not before this commercial. This was tuned to Fox News and I cannot believe you're playing Fox News. I said Ob size it today it's Fox. News. Tomorrow could be discovery channel the next day and might be you know who knows what? It's something different every day my receptionist controls it's not me. It's just whatever it is. I. Said if backup Santa Surprise that it's not the discovery channel because we we subscribe to that too and four days out of five of seems to be tuned into something dental. So but either as May. Come back. We'll talk about your needs and everything is going to go on and he says, no, you don't understand I could not possibly be a part of this in a dental office from someone who is preaching as politics out to everybody else. At this point I had to make a decision was this going to be a lifetime relationship with this guy or was it gonna be hi and bye because if I decided to keep them on to story for live longer and I was going to bend my ways to make him you know, yes, I could change the channel but if I was gonna bend over backwards to make this one person. Happy. was that going to be what my my position was going to be for the day? And you know flash of lightning ever only happens about once every five years I said well, you know what? If that's your position you can see the door right there. And he looked at me and he looked over behind him with the door said, wait a minute and might be the straight. You gotta let a perfectly good patient go because you won't change the TV station has no no, I'll just let you go but I won't let these perfectly good patients go. Ooh, good answer. I thought it was just a flash of lay. It just came to me and he turn on his heels and he huffed and puffed and slam the doors and Audi went, and there was two people sitting there in the waiting room. They were both patients of mine for years and they both looked at me at applauded me lately it likes to say good job Tim good job. So my point is you can't be everything to everybody the customer is not always right. We hear that time and time again, the customer's always right the customer's always right. But in reality I have to make my plans for ninety nine percent of the audience in for the one percent I've gotta them go and it was some of the best decisions I've ever made I've done it maybe five times in my life. I've been in practice for thirty thirty one years. It's a rare thing but we don't click with somebody really don't click and that's the times when I have to say you know what you're out of here and this is one of those times.

Don't Dread the Dentist With Dr. Ruby Gelman
"I'm Ruby Goeman. I'm uh-huh pediatric dentist in private practice in New York City. I have been practicing for nineteen years. I can't even believe that I'm saying and also mom to two amazing kids. Ari who is nine and a half and Avi Tau who is seven so I don't think you're I hope that you leave realizing saying how interesting your field is because I have so many things and in some some very selfish reasons that you're as well okay so when kids have to start going to the dentist so the the guidelines from the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry say that kids should come into the dentist by their first birthday or when they get their first tooth you know those kinds of visits that the the the first visit it where there's a lot of talking sometimes parents kind of balk at it because they think well. I'm bringing my child to the pediatrician. The my child has one tooth. What's the dentist GonNa do but the idea is. We Really WanNa make what we call a dental home for a child and then that means that where we're bringing them into our practice and we're bringing them into kind of this this world where we want them to become great dental patients since for life so the first visit is really important but it's not a there isn't a ton of hands on stuff that you guys literally like count the brush account that you know it was always the I have to say that I haven't been good at bringing them by their first birthday but maybe like by one and a half or two then they start then we start coming regularly so for me when I talk to parents and my my friends and even for myself bringing my own kids. I really didn't bring them until the age of two and the reason is that you know obviously I'm a dentist so I'm checking their mouths and I know that I know that I have that ability to to see what's going on and my friends are all bringing their kids over to me you know so. I can take a look at their teeth the kitchen and things like that but you know the guidelines are there for a reason but at the same time I think that when when when we we know our children best and we know that some kids are just not going to have it coming to the dentist before there to to a really great time. Am I feel because as much as I hate to admit it second. Even the second birthday is tough because the visits are not always you know sunshine and rainbows rainbows kids are gonNA cry. Sometimes I like to prepare parents for that and I told them it actually helps us when kids cry because they open their mouth and we can see what's going on on but the value is that we try to create this really positive environment and then they they building memories and they know that Oh the dentist isn't so bad and I'm gonNA come and I'm getting a toothbrush and I'm going to get price and then the next visit is better and it also have a really nice because they have this like seat that tilts back and then they have a TV is on the ceiling and then they can choose what they're going to watch each and then you as a really fun flavors of toothpaste too so it's you know there's a lot of bribery and sort of like if you like and it is really fun. There's like like very interesting like interactive toys everywhere. But what are you know. When should we need to start brushing their teeth when they have their first tooth correct ideally yes yes and then what should we be brushing both toothbrush and what kind of pace should we be using so again. You know there are there are guidelines is that we have. I'm GonNa tell you what the what the the American Dental Association says. I'm GonNa tell you practically what I recommend end and what really works well for me. ideally we. WanNa brush our kids teeth as soon as they come in and with a a toothbrush with whatever works for you there are there are Klotz that you can use you can use a wash cloth to wipe off the surface of the teeth you know the reason why brushing teeth so early is important is because plaque can start to build up as soon as kids get teeth and and plaque is is is kind of the enemy of dental health

His name is Louis von on the problem was that there were people who in order to send spam from Yahoo accounts. They would obtain millions of Email accounts, literally, millions not not hundreds or thousands. But millions of fake Email accounts. Literally millions of fakey mill council this spammers who were signing up for millions of spam. Accounts weren't going to the yahu male page and just signing up for these accounts. One at a time. It wasn't like they were like the real Jacob Goldstein at Yahoo dot com. Jacob Goldstein ninety nine at Yahoo dot com. Jacob the barefoot dancer at Yahoo dot com. No spammers were writing simple, computer programs little bots that just kept filling out the Yahoo Email sign up form again and again and again day. Day and night and that would generate an army of Email accounts that could be used to sell fake Viagra or steal your Bank account information. Whatever Dow didn't know what to do about this. But Louis finan had an idea. So the idea was can we make test that distinguish between humans and computers, but also a test that is graded by the computer, if you've basically ever signed up for anything on the internet. You probably know the idea that Luis von Ahn came up with a picture of distorted letters and numbers, and then a little field below that picture where you type in the characters that you see, and we actually showed it to the the guy who was the chief scientists at Yahoo. Are he loved it? And within a few weeks. It was actually, you know in the registration flow of Email accounts at Yahoo. It was it was being used there. And we were super happy that they were just using it Lewis gave his little tested name was a long ridiculous name that made a short genius acronym. The long name was completely automated public turing test to tell computers and humans. Apart a train test is a famous old idea in computer science. It's a test where you try to tell if you're chatting with a computer or with a human being if a computer can consistently make you think it's a human being that is artificial intelligence, and this sort of turing test that Louis came up with it became huge. You may even know the acronym for this test capture capture capture has very compelling have show is a good name. Yeah. Because it's like capture them or Gotcha. Or something like that. Yeah. It was it was a good name, you know capture. Maybe you do not like capture and yet the twenty year history of capture is this window into a lot into artificial intelligence into digitizing millions of books also into a little cyber. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm Jacob Goldstein. And I'm no L king. And I am not a robot. I'm not not not a robot. But if you were that's exactly what. Today on the show, a global decades-long work an internet that people actually use versus a spammy wasteland. It is computer versus computer.

I should say that Luis von Ahn was one of several people working on capture of like tests around the same time. So he's not the only person who came up with the idea that people develop their own captures. But Lewis and his colleagues are the ones who came up with the name and their version was the one that really took off when you bought tickets online when you signed up for your mice basic count pretty soon people were taking Louise's little test two hundred million times a day. It was protecting the world from scalpers and spammers and bots and the world, of course, responded with gratitude every time that I talked to somebody about about capture, you know, the first thing they would tell me is how annoying they are. So I started feeling fair fair. I started feeling partly responsible for these, you know, two hundred million times a day. And each time you type one of these you wasted about ten seconds of your time. So, you know, I started just thinking is there any way in which we can make good use of this these ten seconds. This was in the mid two thousand and at this moment, there is this push. Bush going on to digitize old books and all documents. And at the time it was easy enough to scan old pages old pieces of paper and put them online. But computers were still bad at turning those scanned pages into useful online documents if not searchable you cannot change the font size. You cannot. I mean, it's just a bunch of kind of somewhat crappy pictures. Yeah. So it occurred to me that you could take all of the words that the computer could not recognize and we get people to read them for us while they were typing captures on the internet up to this point Lewis has been giving capture away for free. But now he thinks people might pay to have their print archives digitized one capture at a time, and he is sitting on over half a million hours of free human Labor Day. So he starts a company called recapture, and he goes out looking for customers. And what happened was I was actually giving a talk somewhere. And I was fortunate that the at the time the guy who was the chief information officer for the New York Times was sitting in the audience. Okay. And he said, oh, you know, what we have this huge one hundred and thirty year old archive of old additions of the New York Times. So maybe we can maybe you can help us the New York Times ended up being recaptured first client now when you solve the caption next to a few random letters and numbers there. Was also a picture of a word from an old issue of the times the computers couldn't read when you typed in that word, you weren't just protecting the internet from spam? You're also helping to turn a hundred years of old newspapers into a searchable digital archive, and I have to say, I just love this sort of while you're doing one thing. You're also doing something else like deficiency of this. Like, it just it delights me, you know, it's like the old dream of writing your exercise bike to power the lights in your house or something which by the way Lewis told me when he was like eleven he had that dream, and then he like looked into it and realize oh, actually like a person, right? An exercise bike as a terrible way to generate power. As Lewis was getting recaptured going Google came out and announced they were starting to digitize every book like every single book in the world or something they sold. Lewis was doing for the times and in two thousand and nine Google bought recap show and started using it to help digitize books and then a few. Later. Google started using captured tests that showed pictures of addresses on the sides of buildings when we saw those captures we were making Google maps work better doing a little more work for Google, unpaid. So that is the end of Louise's capture story, but a little digression. He started a language company where people did online translation while they were learning the length which same like doing one thing actually doing other thing idea. This company became super popular it's called dual lingo, in fact, it got so popular that they got rid of the translation part. Now, it's just this app that millions of people use to learn languages. Okay. End of Louis end of digression. So now, it is the 'oughts and for a while capture is working the spammers are held at bay. And then someone figures out a work around. Shady businesses started showing up online and offering to break capture for anybody willing to pay. Chris Canaan is a computer scientist who started looking into these businesses around two thousand eight and it's one of. Those things like until you actually think oh, actually let's go seek this up. See how hard it is to find. You might think. Oh, this is some shady cybercriminals underground thing. But Nope, you can just Google for it, you could find a dozen of these services. Very competitively priced with all that stuff. Chris wanted to know like what's going on here? Like is it for real do these services work? So he and his colleagues decided to act like spammers. I mean, they didn't do the spam part. But they did more or less everything else. They built a bought. And this bought went around the web bumping into captures. And automatically every time the bought hit a capture test. It would send it off to one of these services that offers to solve captures for money, and what do those services do exactly they pay human beings to sit in front of computers all day long and solve one capture after another. So some person sitting in front of a computer gets a capture from Chris's bought solves the test in a couple of seconds sends it back to Chris's Bhatt, which enters the solution into a web page and boo. Yes, that is the plain vanilla version just to see like. Does this work? How long does it take? But Chris and his colleagues also had some other questions they wanted to answer. So they did something else they made up their own captured tests to send out to the solvers. Some of those tests are said what time is it and the answer to those tests told them what time zone the people salting the test lived in. They'll wanted to know what languages the solver spoke. So they made captures with weird instructions in lots of different languages Chinese Spanish Italian Tagalog Portuguese Russian, Tamil Dutch, Hindi German Malay Vietnamese Korean Greek Arabic Bengali Canada Klingon in Farsi. I'm sorry. What was the one before? I see Klingon Klingon the made up language from Star Trek maiden. Of course, not. But they did it because they wanted to just like sort of push these services like how far will these capture solvers go. There's no way they're going to be able to answer this. But the answers we saw showed us. I think we got something like a one percent accuracy rate. But it. Was on something that was so incredibly long of a question that it couldn't have been right by chance. So presumably one of these capture solvers recognized that this was Klingon either new Klingon just because at the no or looked it up online. When was actually able to successfully solve this capture. That was written in Klingon you found the greatest capture solver on earth. Yes. Based on this part of the study, not the Klingon part put the languages and the time zones. They figure out that a lot of people seem to be doing this work in Russia, China and India, and they realize this is a huge industry. People have started calling it capture farming, and it is basically human beings opening the capture gates for an army of bots and capture farms work, usually they were right, usually they were very fast. So that so the services were legit. I mean, they were potentially illegal. But they did the thing that they said they were doing correct. Yeah. One of the most interesting things about cybercrime as a marketplace. Is that it works like any other like business to business type marketplace, your reputation is really important there. You're not gonna keep your capture solving business in business, unless you're actually solving those captures and how much did it cost one US dollar per thousand captures solved so incredibly incredibly inexpensive. But this is a task that takes a typical human, you know, about fifteen twenty seconds. Yes. But God, I mean, you really. Feel for the people doing the work. Yes. So if you are spam or these workers will solve captures for you around the clock for a tenth of a penny per thousand that price is obviously like mind breaking low, but it is still not zero. And it is still enough to weed out a lot of people it weeds out people who are just trolls making spam. Accounts for fun and people who are just posting garbage comments on million garbage websites hoping to sell a few extra dollars worth of garbage products. So even with the capture farms catches still are working to block a lot of people. But what would happen if you could teach a computer to solve the captures then you wouldn't need the farms and the farmers anymore. The price would go to zero and the spammers could go wild.
Can Whitening Products Really Damage Your Teeth?
"Well, now, we have a report that ingredient in whitening strips is actually harmful to deep layer of the teeth. They say that hydrogen peroxide in it, the active ingredient in over the counter whitening chips may be harmful to the layer under the name of the teeth. They say the teeth are made up of three layers the outer Anabel, the underlying Dentin layer, and connective tissue that binds to the gum. The middle layer Denton is rich in proteins and has a lot of collagen strong. Most studies on the safety of hydrogen peroxide have focused on the Anabel. Now, the chemical is known to penetrate, the camel and just reached the Denton. Even though in miniscule amounts. According to Dr Hewlett associate dean of dean school of dentistry spokesman for the American dental association. It wasn't volved instead of explain it. Now, the senior author of the study Kelly Keenan and associate professor of chemistry Stockton university of New Jersey said in a statement that she and her colleagues sought to further characterize what your hydrogen peroxide was actually joined to the collagen. Now, I'll whiting Prenton the United States can approximate or carbide peroxide accords the American dental association. So you're tire teeth and artificial saliva. The researchers actually watched the collagen in Denton breakdown. Into smaller proteins when treated with hydrogen, peroxide. So what passed the Anabel into the Denton? They say results show that the trailer without a proxy concentration. Similar to those found of whitening strips is enough to make the original collagen protein disappear. Now, they caution against generalizing the results obtained and teeth that aren't necessarily still the body these were extracted teeth because you know, your teeth in vivo, maybe a little more resilient than in vitro in vivo means in a living body in vitro means in a lab or Petri dish.
