I wanted to take a moment to share a great dental organization with you – The Seattle Study Club (SSC). Many of you I’m sure have heard of this club, but if you haven’t let me give you a little background.
The SSC is the creation of Dr. Michael Cohen, DDS, MSD. Dr. Cohen helped form the advanced educational organization through a lot of hard work, passion and devotion to the field of dentistry. He keeps very busy, as an accomplished continuing education (CE) author, textbook editor, visiting clinical professor at the University of Washington, conference lecturer and by maintaining his private practice in the Seattle area.
Online Marketing Tips For Your Practice: Enhance Your Patient Relationships and Help Build Your Business
Let’s face it. The dental business can be a very competitive industry. You are often vying for patients with a handful of other offices in town and if you are located in a large city, you are competing in an even tougher environment with more practices, and large chains with bigger marketing budgets.
It is difficult to build your brand from referrals alone and the yellow pages is not the golden book it used to be, so I figured why not offer some ideas and tips surrounding the important, very relevant topic of online marketing.

We’ll be headed to the Windy City for three days of great lectures and courses led from some of the best in the dental community during the Chicago Dental Society’s 147th Midwinter Meeting.
It’s a great show that 3M ESPE has been a part of for years, and I’m looking forward to the always-vibrant city of Chicago, especially with this year’s slogan of ‘Teeth and all that Jazz.’
If you’re unfamiliar with the event, the Chicago Dental Society (CDS) has been hosting the annual Midwinter Meeting since 1865 – and it’s been growing ever since. According to the CDS, the mission for the event is to “disseminate dental information and advance the profession of dentistry.”
I’d like to wish a very happy Thanksgiving to you, my readers. We’ve surpassed the 18-month mark and the interaction here continues to grow and prosper. Thank you for your comments and insights; I certainly do appreciate and enjoy the interaction.
I know 3M ESPE is also thankful for our loyal customers. We truly appreciate your business.
My best wishes to you and your families for a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
“Not long ago, one of my long-standing friends lost his job. He had always been self-conscience about his smile, but had never done anything about it because he made his kids’ teeth a priority. But now that he was looking for a new job, and after several months without success, I offered to help him with his smile…”
And so begins a great story from Dr. John Weston about the power of dentistry. We’re all involved in a very exciting industry/profession that can really make a difference in people’s lives. Do you have a story to share?
