How dentists work with Digital Smile Design company
Hi there, my name is Christian Coachman and I'm the founder of Digital Smile Design. I've spent my whole life working as a technician, a dentist, and a consultant for top clinics and dental companies worldwide. During this intense but rewarding time, I figured out in what conditions dentists thrive and what they need to reach optimal success.
The challenges and bottlenecks I identified ranged from clinical to financial… and they needed solutions. So I decided to build a system for overcoming them: Digital Smile Design.
Here I'm going to share with you what Digital Smile Design, the concept, and the company, is really about and how we can provide you with the forward-thinking solutions you're looking for to empower your career in dentistry.
Getting out of your comfort zone
Since starting this company, dentists often ask me how they can start working with Digital Smile Design. The answer is simple: start by getting out of your comfort zone.
From my experience and travels, I have met so many dentists who are looking to get more out of their practice, and it's these people that DSD was designed around. The dentists that benefit the most from DSD are the ones who are eager to break free from the routine of general dentistry and re-discover passion for their craft.
It’s not easy to take steps out of your comfort zone, however risky it may be to stay. Dentists who work with DSD seek to make a change; they understand that not taking the risk is a greater risk.
Hence, the first step to getting involved with DSD is deciding to get out of your comfort zone to take full advantage of what we can do for your dental business.
We’re here to help.
To get started with DSD or to find out more information about how DSD can benefit you, choose one of the below options...
The core of DSD is to help dental professionals make better decisions - clinical decisions, technical decisions and business decisions. Over the years DSD has identified the solutions and storylines that empower teams to differentiate themselves in the highly competitive smile design market.
The three pillars that form DSD, education, services, and products, are each rooted in our mission to help dentists and their teams implement more comprehensive care and take full advantage of dental technology.
You may be thinking that this sounds great… 'but how can I actually start this journey?'
To start your journey with DSD and with modern comprehensive digital care, there are two paths to choose from: Education and Membership.
This is the most popular path to get started with DSD, and it's divided into three components:
The Courses: We have a range of courses for dental professionals, presented in both online and in-person formats. Each course guides you in understanding, mastering and implementing the concepts of comprehensive treatment planning, technology implementation, and patient management.
The DSD Mastership: This is an online, 12-month DSD mentorship where you will receive one-to-one coaching as a dentist by experienced DSD mentors to equip you with the knowledge and skills to seamlessly implement DSD in your daily practice. During this process you will submit cases to the DSD Planning Center and, with technical coaching, learn how to master the DSD workflow.
The DSD Consultancy: This is a specialized DSD implementation training experience, where highly trained DSD consultants travel to your office to deliver two days of tailored and in-person training for you and your team on all DSD clinical and technical procedures. This investment enables the entire clinic team to be aligned and inspired by DSD and to implement it with passion.
Our two membership routes into working with DSD offer you the resources and services to put our workflow into consistent practice.
BeDSD+: This is DSD’s online education community platform and the ultimate resource hub for the best of DSD's comprehensive digital care learning content, with unrivaled networking and case discussions among members from all over the world.
DSD Clinics: This is a global network of certified clinics that have access to our exclusive DSD Planning Center services, the first and only interdisciplinary planning center in the world, as well as the DSD Lab, DSD Clinic marketing campaigns, and specialized DSD team training. This community of DSD Clinic owners enjoys many benefits in addition to professional support and camaraderie with like-minded clinic owners.
It's about reinventing yourself
If reigniting your passion for dentistry is something that's been on your mind, then perhaps you have found yourself subconsciously seeking ways to deliver better care for your patients. Maybe it feels like you've reached a plateau with your work and ultimately, you're looking to reinvent yourself in your field.
The truth is that we live in a fast-paced world, always full of new technologies and opportunities to harness. This philosophy is what DSD empowers dentists to accomplish three main objectives:
Polish their five-year plan
Improve and grow their practice
Prepare their exit strategy
There is an abundance of case studies, anecdotes and testimonials from dentists who have done this in a variety of ways while on the DSD pathway. It’s these stories that demonstrate the power of practicing meaningful dentistry, like this one from Dr Saghi Helmi and her journey to creating the ultimate DSD experience in her DSD Clinic.
