Episode : 357: Take Ownership NOW

Podcast Description

Missed her last time? Dr. Rhonda Kalasho is back on the Dental A-Team pod! This time, she chats with Kiera about ways to maximize your role as a dentist for your patients.

Dr. Kalasho shares three ways to get a grip on your practice:

  1. Know that there’s always an option for your patients

  2. Look for opportunity in hygiene exams

  3. Help your patients understand that insurance is a coupon

Being a good dentist also means being a good business owner, and Dr. Kalasho talks tips on that, too. For example, dedicating time to your admin duties and taking care of yourself in your personal life (yes, you’re allowed to have one — and you should!).

Implementing these tips will help you establish better ownership in your practice and in your life.

Dr. Rhonda Kalasho is a dentist and patients see her for a host of reasons, including teeth bonding, bruxism, sleep apnea, sensitive teeth, and plaque. She is fluent in English as well as Arabic, which makes her culturally attuned to patients from various backgrounds.

Dr. Kalasho earned her dental degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. She presently runs her own practice located in Los Angeles. As a dental professional, she tries to stay updated on the latest advancements in dentistry to provide suitable treatment options to her patients. Dr. Kalasho recognizes that many patients may not be completely comfortable with visiting a dentist. She endeavors to make dental visits a low-stress experience with minimal discomfort.
