(Your shortcut to creating an incredible hygiene department that will supercharge your business, your wealth and your life as a dentist… even if you are on “life support” now.)
Good Morning Doctor –
Imagine what it would feel like to have an incredible hygiene department that runs smoothly (and profitably) and keeps your side of the book filled with the kind of productive dentistry that you enjoy doing.
Š A hygiene department that produces $25K/month/hygienist
Š A hygiene department that does all the selling and takes the pressure off of you
Š A department that keeps 75% of your patients in the recall/recare system
Š A department that can easily increase hygiene production by $220,000 in one year
Š Hygienists who know (and understand) the shocking truth about Case Acceptance and Patient Retention
Š Hygienists who know the secret of connecting and gaining rapport with nearly every patient
Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not, and once you learn how to do this you will also create what one of our Destin attendees likes to call…
Now please don’t be offended by his term, what he means is that when the hygiene department is systemized and incentivized… patients receive incredible care and you make a ton of money. “When hygiene is happy… everyone is happy!”
So what is the “Ultimate Hygiene System”? Well, it’s actually a group of five products (modules).
Here’s what’s included:
“Here’s How To Master The “Bu$ine$$ of A $uccessful Hygiene SYSTEM”
Unfortunately most dental practices in the United States have “weak” hygiene departments. By “weak” I mean they produce below the ADA “Standard Care” and they don’t do well financially. Sound familiar?
So when we were putting together the 2011 Spring Break Seminar… I went after (and got) the #1 hygiene “numbers” person in American… Hugh Doherty, DDS, CFP. Dr. Doherty is widely considered as having one of the best informed management and financial minds in the dental profession.
He is a certified financial planner (fee only), investment advisor, national lecturer, author, management and financial coach to the dental profession. A former dentist, he established the largest fee-for-service dental practice in New Jersey before turning his full attention to helping dentists dramatically improve their professional and personal lifestyles. He founded and is CEO of Doctor’s Financial Network, a company dedicated to coaching dentists to develop and implement cutting edge strategies.
His effective coaching emphasizes the management of the business aspects of a practice which is critical for doctors to successfully achieve their financial goals. Over 27,000+ hours have been spent working with his clients that call him coach, consultant, mentor and friend. He was selected for 13 consecutive years by Dentistry Today as one of the outstanding consultants in dentistry.
Dr. Doherty will teach you the following:
• How to make hygiene a profit center
• How to create a team that motivates and respects the doctor
• How each hygienist can generate an extra $30-$50K/month for the doctor
• Establish a standard of care protocol
• Create an experience that patients can’t find elsewhere
• The correct way to monitor the stats of the practice every day
• Why and how to do a DISC profile on all staff people AND the doctor
• The anatomy of a “Cutting Edge” practice (amazing FLOW CHART)
• Why every financially healthy practice is driven by a hygiene SYSTEM
• There are only two individuals who can control hygiene productivity
• Problem / consequence / solution = doctor
• The bare minimum ($) your hygienist should be producing with eight patients per day…
• “Why is my hygienist producing $1,268+/day and yours is only doing $924?”
• Grand Huddle / Quarterly Productivity / Profitability Review
• “Total Practice Control…” FLOW CHART… amazing!
• Why every bonus system should be based on net profit… Whoops!
• Total hygiene production – salaries – benefits… what?
• Hygiene compensation: 1/3; 1/3; 1/3
• Hugh’s 25-step, hygiene ACTION plan
• 17 procedures every hygienist MUST do
• Oh, did you forget the American Red Cross Oral Cancer Exam?”
• Why your hygienists should be the best “sales person” in the practice
• Hire a hygienist by the DISC profile… no exceptions!
• Why you need a “Hygiene System Manual”
• Why 30-40% of the doctor’s schedule should “happen” because of the hygienist(s)
• What does this tell you if you don’t have a hygienist?
And so much more!
Hey, if you are serious about creating an efficient, profitable hygiene team, you need to order this DVD and implement its suggestions ASAP!
If 30-40% of your schedule is NOT created by hygiene…
you really need this product!
“Most Dental Offices Are Leaving $75,000 - $150,000/Year ‘On The Table’ Of The Insurance Companies… Due To Coding Errors!”
(Even if you “don’t take insurance” you gotta hear this, and then you will know why!)
Don’t know about you, but I’d be more than upset with handing the various dental insurance companies an “extra” $75,000-$150,000+ a year. Now, to be perfectly clear, I’m NOT talking about illegal coding or billing for dental work that was not completed. That is total FRAUD and you can actually get “jail time” for that. So, unless you look good in ORANGE or B&W stripes… please, read on.
Roz Fulmer has over 100 answers to insurance coding challenges… here are just a few:
Š If you do not accept assignment of reimbursement but file insurance claims for patients, do you still have to notify the insurance company that a courtesy was given to the patient?
Š If you are contracted with an insurance company and a patient has met their annual maximum, a claim has been filed, are you still required to do the write-off?
Š If an office is contracted with insurance companies, iss it best to only submit their allowed amount or should our regular UCR fees be submitted on claims?
So, I’m guessing that you too don’t know the answers to all of these questions? Me neither, and that’s why every dentist and dental team needs to purchase this DVD and absorb everything on it.

“The Shocking Truth About Expanded Hygiene… Revealed At Last!”
Vicki McManus, RDH center stage at our Destin,
(A blockbuster breakthrough in hygiene care for every patient.)
Maybe it’s time that you re-visited “expanded hygiene”? Back in the 80s heavy metal music was king and “expanded hygiene” was billed as the greatest thing in dentistry. But something went wrong… “expanded hygiene” morphed into a creature that raised the hygienist’s blood pressure and left their patients feeling cheated. But that was then and this is now.
Do you still have an 80s hygienist producing less than $800-$1,000 per day? Perhaps it’s time you revisited “expanded hygiene” 2008 style?
Enter Vicki McManus, RDH… one of the brightest and most energetic hygienists I know. She left clinical hygiene – due to some changes in her personal life – to become a hygiene coach… so she has 20+ years of hygiene coaching experience.
More recently she has started working with Dr. Bruce Baird of the Productive Dentist Academy to help dentists and hygienists be more productive. The result has been a tremendous program to help your hygiene department evolve!

“Simple Formulas: Healthier Patient = Healthier Bottom Line”
(Could it really be this simple?)
I was sitting with a group of doctors over coffee at my annual Spring Break Seminar and the question came up: If you really wanted to set your hygiene department “on fire” who would you bring in?
I mentioned several years ago when coaching, one of our members decided to bring in Wendy Briggs, RDH for a fee of around $9,000/day. He said that was one of the best suggestions he acted on all year… and she was part of his collections going up nearly $850K in one year!
As we talked about the experience, names came up and the one that came up the most often was Pat Worcester, RDH. Frankly, I had not heard that much about Pat… but decided right then and there that I was going to invite her to Destin and attend her seminar that day.
What a shocking and mind blowing experience! Here’s just some of what she covered in this fast-paced presentation:
• “Mission Possible”
• Illustration of a highly profitable hygiene department
• Perio affects 80% of the population… WHY aren’t we treating 80%?
• What percentage of your hygiene department is in therapeutic treatments?
• What percentage is prophy based? Seriously!?
• Who’s really active in perio and who’s not?
• A quick formula for determining exactly how many people should be in your continuing care
• A simple formula to analyze the practice to determine the number of hygiene days needed per
day… like 8.8
• Let’s calculate this truth
• How to determine the exact number of hygiene hours needed per week
• Why would you multiply 20% x the patients in your continuing care program?
• A 6-step process to schedule each patient accurately based on their individual need
• The 5-step Best Hygiene, “Mission Possible”
• Divide the number by 48 (Oh, I didn’t think about that)
And so much more!
What I really liked about this lady was that she gave lots of great information… not to the point of putting you on “overload.” Have your team watch this DVD 2-3 times until they’ve got it for life.
To make more in hygiene you have to master the hygiene
department and these DVDs are a great starting point!
To recap, here’s what you’ll receive with the Ultimate Hygiene System:
