#30 – Brett Churnin’s Lessons From Decades of Coaching Dentists

All of the top level athletes have coaches. Many have multiple. But when it comes to our careers, our business and our lives we tend to take it all on ourselves without asking for the help we need.

If we really think about this, it doesn’t make sense. And talking with Brett Churnin really hits home for me in this episode.

Brett has been coaching dentists with Prime Practice for over 17 years. His passion and effectiveness in what he does really shows through in this discussion. We even get into the weeds with something I’ve been wanting to change for a while, incidentally highlighting the accountability factor a good coach can provide.

5 Steps to Calming The Anxious Patient

Dental anxiety is extremely common.

And the reasons for this are often valid. Treatment techniques and mindset have changed drastically over the last 50 years and fortunately in today’s world, it is less.

I, and I trust most of you, put in a special effort for every single anxious patient. Especially children where this anxiety is often precipitated.

In my short few years I’ve come to recognise 5 key techniques that help anxious patients through this difficult time.

This is just one little piece of what i’ll be sharing this Thursday in the 4Sight Dental Graduate Webinar. With Dr Jesse Green and Dr Omid Azami as well, this will give you a Dental Head Start!

#20 – Dr Colm Harney on communication, conflict resolution and Empathy

Communication is key. I say it all the time. And this episode our guest lives and breaths it. This is a must listen for communication, dispute resolution and for all associates, which is most of you!

Dr Colm Harney is a general dentist practicing in Perth. He has gone on to complete multiple post graduate courses in communication and interpersonal skills and now finds himself in a unique position to be able to pass on these skills and information to dentists around the country, and world!

He does this through speaking and, most relevantly, in his fantastic podcast The Communicating Health Podcast. Colm uses this podcast as a platform to discuss communication with experienced clinicians in the health field.

This episode
Colm was kind enough to invite me to his place in Perth, where I popped my live
recording cherry. The conversation is packed with communication tips and
relevant advice from his experience.
