Welcome &

If you’re here, you have either read The Well-Referred Dentist or have heard about it. Either way you have the vision and fortitude to recognize that some learning is missing and that, contained in this missed learning is the secret sauce that can take your practice to the next level.

If you don't have the book,
you can order it here.


As a dentist, the secret sauce that is missing in your education, because there was not enough time to learn it in dental school, is identifying the presence of fear and anxiety and its negative impact on your patients.

The Well-Referred Dentist is the first book written about dental fear and anxiety that addresses the negative impact of these feelings on both the patient and the dentist. Although this book is written for dentists, the concept of fear and anxiety is equally relevant and useful for other health care providers, entrepreneurs and coaches.

In The Well-Referred Dentist you will find a comprehensive resource for identifying those patients who suffer from dental fear and anxiety. You will learn not only how to identify but also how to alleviate the emotional charge associated with these negative feelings so that your patients will no longer be triggered every time they walk into your dental office or think about a dental procedure.

The book offers a step-by-step program for creating relationships with patients based on trust so that the patient can have confidence in the care you have recommended. These lasting relationships are a win-win for the patient and the dentist as the fears and anxieties felt by the patients are also felt by the dentists who care for them; thereby directly impacting the success of the treatment outcome.

As one reviewer wrote: “being a competent and skillful dentist is not enough; equally as important are the human skills of attuning to and managing people’s needs and feelings - - - - which is not normally taught in dental school.”
