Creating Competitive Advantage with Customer Service & Business Organization

Listen to Creating Competitive Advantage with Customer Service & Business Organization

Joe Leone Introna is the Owner Operator of Joe Leone’s Italian Specialties, Catering, Gastronomia and Bakery in Point Pleasant Beach & Sea Girt.  

The bakery is where it all began for Joe, where his passion for breads and pastries were first developed. Then, after many years of learning and perfecting his love of baking artisan bread, he decided to pursue his culinary education and worked at a few well-known established Jersey Shore specialty markets and bakeries.  While honing his craft, he decided to pursue his American dream with his family’s support and open Joe Leone’s Italian Specialties on June 2, 1997 at the age of 21.

The marriage of traditional and modern Italian cuisines, developed in his retail markets and introduced by Joe, has given the Jersey Shore educational exposure to the Italian culture. Joe is dedicated and passionate to the culinary excellence, superior customer service and love of food at the Jersey Shore.

His love of food overflows into the community.  Joe has become a well-known local humanitarian who doesn’t care for the spotlight on himself and tends to shift the spotlight to more deserving organizations and places that need emergency action.  Some of the organizations that Joe is continuously sharing information and teaching others about are; L’Aquila Earthquake Relief Fund, One Strong Family mission; spreading the message of F.A.M.I.L.Y.®( Forget About Me I Love You), Common Ground Grief Center, Covenant House of New Jersey, Fulfill; formally Foodbank of Monmouth & Ocean County and several other local fundraising efforts.

Overcoming Adversity, Digital Printing Benefits, and More

Listen to Overcoming Adversity, Digital Printing Benefits, and More

Dr. Spera and Dr. Griffin discuss the challenges Dr. Griffin has faced in his career, as well as the successes, and his recent appreciation for 3-D in-house digital printing.

Bio:

In 2009 Dr. Griffin was coined the “Most Efficient Dentist in America” by Dr. Woody Oakes after producing 3 times the national average in 3 days per week in a terribly economically depressed part of the country while seeing a very high volume of patients.

Then disaster struck.  While rebuilding his practice from a devastating fire in 2013, Dr. Chris Griffin unearthed several breakthroughs that helped him rebrand his practice to provide more advanced dental services at a slower pace with an increase in profit.

Now, he is on a mission to help dentists work less, make more, and enjoy practice again by empowering their teams through purpose and process to provide more advanced services like dental implants, orthodontics, and 3D printing.

There is a S.M.A.R.T.E.R. way to practice and that is by harnessing the power of your dental team to drive practice growth and implement seemingly complex new procedures like never before.

 

Career Highlights:

 

2010 Mississippi Dental Association Humanitarian of the Year

Fellowship Academy of General Dentists

Fellowship International Dental Implant Association (pending due to Covid)

#1 Podcast on Dentaltown, January 2020 – the Dr. Chris Griffin Show

Author of 5 Books in Dentistry

Speaking has allowed him to share the stage with several of his dental heroes, including Howard Farran and Gordon Christensen.

Published in Decisions in Dentistry, Dental Economics, Dentaltown Magazine, The Profitable Dentist, AGD Impact, DOCS Digest, and many more.

First peer reviewed clinical journal print article scheduled to be published in July, 2021.

Success In Dentistry & Life

Listen to Success In Dentistry & Life

Dr. Alan Stern and Dr. Spera sit down to discuss finding true success through FFS Dentistry and life in general. A personal note from Dr. Stern:

 

My name is Alan Stern.  I  am a practicing dentist and run a coaching business called Better Richer Stronger.

I work with dentists who want to create a workplace that is productive & profitable and a life that is rewarding and meaningful.  As a speaker, I conduct presentations for dental groups that redefine what it means to build a better team and rekindle their passion for what matters.

In fact, I wrote the book, Enjoy the Ride for those who want to get out from the day to day grind and take charge of their roadmap to a better life.

As a result of my work, people often share they have more focus, more energy, more momentum and get the results they no longer thought were possible.

On a personal note, my wife Fran and I recommitted to living a healthy life and I even held a plank for ten and one half minutes on my 66th birthday!

Purchasing an FFS Practice in 2020 Part 2

Listen to Purchasing an  FFS Practice in 2020 Part 2

Dr. Stephen Esposito is a second-generation dentist. He graduated from Hinsdale Central High School and attended Loyola University Chicago on academic scholarship. After graduating from the University of Detroit-Mercy for dental school, Dr. Esposito and his family moved to Westmont where his practice is located.

 

“Through all of my experience and education, I’ve learned that though my focus may be on oral health, serving a patient is really about understanding and treating the entire person.

 

I truly feel that the greatest part of healthcare is forming a firm and trustworthy connection with patients and community where education and advocacy serves as the backbone for ethical, sensible, and comprehensive care. I want every patient to feel that they are both well cared for and that we’ve excelled for them in every regard!"
