What does it mean for a dentist to run an up-to-date, patient-centric practice? How can a patient have a better experience when visiting their dentist? Why is trust so important to the dentist-patient relationship? Dr. Rick Mars answers these questions and many more in The Big Smile: The Principles of Modern Dentistry – For Dentists and Patients.
Dr. Mars draws on his 30-plus years of experience to provide actionable insights in this unique book that’s written for both practitioner and patient. Patients will learn what to expect of their dentist, how to get an honest second opinion, and how to best choose a dentist (hint: don’t go by internet reviews alone). Dentists will learn how to modernize their practice, why they are the unsung heroes of healthcare, and what it means to truly put their patients’ needs first.
Full of real-life stories, humor, and warmth, The Big Smile is an indispensable guide for everyone who wants to get the most out of the dentist-patient relationship.
Dr. Rick Mars gets it and lives it! Originally inspired as a young boy by working at his dad’s drapery shop, in The Big Smile he takes you behind the curtain into what it takes to be successful in today’s dental practice . . . and at home and in your community."
