Is Traveling For Work Ideal?


Hey Friends,

This was the first "normal" week that I have had in awhile.

I have been traveling a decent amount lately - it has been a mix of work and personal trips.

Growing up I thought "man it would be so cool to travel for work, I can see different cities and be on the move!"

I really thought traveling for work was something luxurious. Yet it is quite the opposite.

These work trips for me are mainly conferences and conventions, the personal ones are mainly because it is summer time - however - it has been a lot of time at the airport and away from my bed lol.

Being away from home makes me appreciate the beauty of having a "haven"

Neha (my wife) was intentional with how she decorated and setup our apartment and at the time I had no idea what she was doing but now I get to enjoy the benefits of it.

Having a place where I can unwind and NOT think about the stressors of the world is a luxury in this day in age.

I am sure you can relate to some degree as having to go to the office comes with it's own world of stress.

It is good to have time built into your schedule where you can just .... be still.

No phone, no talking, no thinking, just being.

I started meditating daily about 2 years ago - and it has been LIFE CHANGING.

When I started I didn't think much of it - I thought I was doing it wrong and didn't think it was working.

But what I realized is it doesn't have an immediate impact - it has a lasting one. The calm and stillness that comes with meditating would actually "seep" into the rest of my life.

I realized this because if there was a day where I didn't meditate - I would be OFF. Little things would bug me, stress would get to me - there would be a clear difference in how my days went.

So all this being said - take some time for yourself today or tomorrow and try to be still. Appreciate the place you call home - and know that sometimes going to the same place for work is not a bad thing lol


Straight Talk

Do you want to start more aligner cases and elevate your practice's standard of care?
If so - you need to have a scanner and USE IT.

How To Implement Intraoral Scanning Technology:

Invest in intraoral scanning technology for your dental practice to enhance the clear aligner treatment process. Intraoral scanners provide accurate and detailed 3D digital impressions of patients' teeth, eliminating the need for traditional messy impressions. This improves patient experience, reduces chair time, and facilitates seamless communication with clear aligner manufacturers.

Here's how you can implement this tip tomorrow:

  1. Research and select an intraoral scanner: Look into reputable intraoral scanning devices available in the market. Choose a scanner that suits your practice's needs, budget, and integrates well with your existing digital workflow.
  2. Train your team: Provide comprehensive training to your dental team on how to use the intraoral scanner effectively. Ensure they understand the scanning process, positioning, and capturing high-quality digital impressions.
  3. Introduce the technology to patients: During consultations or routine check-ups, explain the benefits of intraoral scanning to patients. Highlight how it improves accuracy, comfort, and the overall treatment experience with clear aligners.
  4. Demonstrate the scanning process: Show patients the scanner and conduct a brief demonstration, allowing them to see the technology in action. This helps alleviate any concerns and instills confidence in the treatment process.
  5. Partner with clear aligner manufacturers: Collaborate with reputable clear aligner manufacturers that accept digital impressions. Ensure a smooth workflow for sending digital scans directly to the manufacturer for aligner fabrication.

By adopting intraoral scanning technology, you streamline the clear aligner treatment process, enhancing precision and efficiency. Patients will appreciate the comfortable experience and the advanced technology used in their treatment, making your dental practice stand out and attract more individuals seeking clear aligner services.

Hey Friends, I am reading Dan Martell's book - Buy Back Your Time and I am absolutely hooked. He talks about how valuable your time is and how you can make the most of it by delegating certain tasks to other people. Your time is worth a dollar amount. You have an hourly rate and you calculate it by taking your income and dividing by 2,000 (hours). That number is your hourly rate. Take that number and divide it by 4 That is your buy back rate. If you can pay someone that amount of money per...

Hey Friends, On Thursday Neha and I were officially THOSE people. We were the people with a crying baby on the plane... twice. We took Naira on her first plane ride and had a connecting flight in Atlanta. There was a delay, there were tears (Naira's lol), but we made it safely. To the parents reading this you know EXACTLY what this feeling feels like. To the people without kids... bless your soul. It's funny because before we had Naira I used to get annoyed when babies would cry on the plane....
