How are you going to approach things once your state allows you to reopen your office? Do you think you’re going back to where you were pre-pandemic? 

There are a lot of questions that are yet to be answered because these are unprecedented times. But there will certainly be a huge paradigm shift both in your practice and in your patients. 

It’s not going to be the same – it probably won’t ever be the same. What we do and how we do it are going to be different now. 

Today, Dr. Victor Martel joins me as we talk about the possible changes and challenges that we, as dental care providers and business owners, need to consider as we’re preparing for the reopening of our offices. 

Victor received his dental degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey. He is a Fellow at the Academy of General Dentistry and the President of Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is a visiting faculty member at Baylor University and a former faculty member at the Dawson Academy. Based in West Palm Beach, Florida, Victor is limiting his practice to high-end prosthetics and prosthodontics.

Victor is also the Founder of Martel Academy. In their mission to elevate the knowledge base of the dental community, they offer courses related to dental implants, esthetic dentistry, occlusion, and comprehensive treatment planning.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Safety issues (aerosol, PPE, screening patients)
  • Looking at lower patient volume and how to approach this
  • How this crisis will impact the value of your office
  • Thoughts on retirement, re-engaging, and reinventing
  • The integrity issue
