The FFS Dentist Podcast

The Fee For Service Dentist Podcast is a podcast where dentist and dental professionals come together to share their best ideas on how to practice dentistry free from insurances for years to come. With the rising tide of corporate dentistry and dental insurance companies, FFS dental practices are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Tune in as Dr. Drew Byrnes interviews everyone from industry leaders to average FFS dentists in your own backyard to find out what works for them and what he can do to keep his own practice FFS for years to come.

He has appeared on several other podcasts speaking on importance or photography, cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, treatment presentation, marketing and FFS.

He mentors pre-dental students at UCSD, on campus in their pre-dental club and has been selected as host cosmetic dentistry resident for the AACD.

He currently lectures 2-3 times per year on the topics above.

This episodes covers how young and old practitioners can also convert to FFS if they have the “right stuff.”

He discusses practicing FFS doesn't feel like work because "providing dentistry is my hobby."

Dr. Eshom describes the freedom he enjoys by doing the right thing in his diagnosis because insurance doesn’t prejudice judgement.

He discusses profitability differences in FFS vs in-network and how you slow down to speed up.

Lastly, he dives into who should consider FFS and how you have to be dedicated to convert and what you give up in the beginning to enjoy FFS for your practice life.

Jessica Bertoglio, DDS, graduated from The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in 2002. She continued her education with a hospital dentistry residency at the University of Iowa Hospital. During her residency she completed rotations in oral surgery, anesthesiology, and internal medicine.

Specifically, she enjoys embracing the latest technologies and innovations in dentistry, including restorative procedures with Cerec CAD/CAM technology as well as placing implants.  Mostly, however, she enjoys meeting and taking care of people. Getting to know her patients and their families is a highlight of her job. She maintains her license in good standing by regularly attending continuing education classes and meetings. As a member of the Illinois State Dental Society, The Chicago Dental Society, and the American Dental Association, she maintains the highest standards of continuing education to treat her patients in the best way possible.

When not seeing patients at The Toothery, Dr. Bertoglio is likely to be found riding horses with her daughters or training for her next triathlon event. Dr. Bertoglio also volunteers at the Willow Creek Dental Clinic.

What is FFS Dentistry & Why FFS?

Listen to What is FFS Dentistry & Why FFS?

 Dr. Steinberg’s achievements span a wide range of professional and personal activities. Most recently, he was voted again as one of Philadelphia’s top dentists (2010, 2014, 2016-2019)

          After attending Temple University for just three years, he was accepted into their School of Dentistry where he was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. In 1980, he received his Doctorate Degree in Dental Surgery and continued his formal training with post-graduate education at West Jersey Hospital’s residency program before entering private practice in Center City, Philadelphia.

          In 1997, the Academy of General Dentistry honored Dr. Steinberg with their prestigious Mastership Degree which only 1% of practicing dentists had historically achieved. Again, in 2013, Dr. Steinberg was presented with the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry (Only 300 other dentists in the country have received this award). In addition, Dr. Steinberg has been educated at both Pankey Institute and Spear Education where he currently teaches as a visiting faculty.

          Outside dentistry, he is a caring husband, father and grandfather who is active in his community and several charities. His hobbies include music (guitar, bass and piano) and sports (golf, baseball and Tae Kwon Do). Yet, his favorite hobby is spending time with friends and family, especially his two grandchildren.

She promises to treat her patients how she would her family. In addition, she is an advocate of continuing education in conventional and holistic dentistry in order to offer her patients the latest and safest materials, procedures and  technology.

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!"
