Breaking away from Managed Care

We practice dentistry. Practice doesn't make perfect, but persistent practice and lots of continuing education makes you a better dentist. I graduated from UMKC dental school back in 1987 and posterior composites seemed like Russian endo roulette. But persistence paid off and I was able to throw away the amalgam triturators in 1991. The first implant I ever surgically placed failed and I paid an oral surgeon to redo it. But a 100 surgical implants later they are starting to become predictable. In 1987 molar endo took me three one-hour appointments. Today, 15 years later, with Profile .06 tapered nickel titanium rotary files from Tulsa Dental Products that same procedure usually takes about an hour. Removing third molars used to make me sweat and make my hands shaky! Back in 1987, on several occasions, I had to call my buddy Bob Sundberg and tell him that I removed the crown, and would he mind removing the root tips. Today I would list removing impacted wisdom teeth as my favorite procedure. I can still remember back in 1987 when mom used to ask if her child would need ortho. I can still remember saying, "I don't know! What do you think?" And of course mom would say, "Well I thought you would know since you're the dentist!" And I would be thinking I don't have a clue! Today, after studying with Harry Green, Jack Sheridan, Richard Litt, and Brock Rondeau, I love to not only answer all of mom and dad's ortho questions, I actually love to do the case! In fact when ever someone says "Cosmetic dentist" I start thinking of ortho and bleaching long before veneers even enter my mind. - Dr Howard Farran DDS MBA MAGD click here for full text.
