Virtual Course 12/4/2021
Diagnostically Driven Dentistry: The Business of Dentistry and How it all Fits Together
This lecture fit well with the changing times due to COVID. It changed the dynamics of my practice, and now is the perfect time to implement a dental plan for my patients.
This was one of my favorite lecturers yet as this is an area I was looking into and had no idea where to go or what to do! I Absolutely Loved this lecture and wished I could have gotten a print out of his PP. Excellent course in these days of PPO dentistry!
This lecture was the best one I have attended in years. It was entertaining and kept my attention (something very difficult to do!). He was soooo interesting and showed his dedication and the great lengths he goes to in order to help mankind to save their teeth. And metrics he uses is simply amazing compared to the average dental practice.
I loved this lecture and will be spending a good bit of time in figuring out how to implement around 90% or so of the material. In other words Dr. Graham has created a lot of work for me to do this weekend.
This was one of the more informative and valuable courses I have ever taken (and after 37 years of practice, that is a significant number!:)) I would love to have him speak again as he mentioned to take this clinical information, as well as his in office practice management protocols to the next level.
Michigan AGD 12/6/19
Geriatric Dentistry: The Fastest Growing Demographic in Dentistry
Lou Graham is hands down one of the best speakers the Michigan AGD has had in a while. Smart, funny, informative and real. Thank you for sharing how you practice dentistry and provide superior treatment to your patients!"
Presentation was unique, relevant and provided info, questions, and tips. I will discuss with staff at next team meeting!
Speaker was passionate about the subject and presented it in an ethical manner.
Excellent speaker and great message!
I wanted you to know what a pleasure it was seeing your lecture at the PAGD Annual Meeting in Lancaster. I always find your presentations informative, thought provoking and entertaining, and other PAGD members that I talked to felt the same. I have already started reviewing and revising my protocols for using the technology that we have for better diagnosis- Diagnodent, Soprocare and our intraoral cameras. I also appreciated your talk on KPI's because even though as dentists we love to concentrate on the clinical side of things we have to realize that we are running a business and must stay profitable in this age of PPO's and corporate dentistry. While I think I do a good job of looking at a lot of the important statistics, again your presentation will have me looking at how I can do better. I look forward to the next time I get a chance to hear you speak, and I promise if I ever see you in an airport again I will stop you and say Hi.
