    Super job, Dr. Waters. I had all of my dental assistants read it just to help THEM better understand dentistry! If only there was a way to get this into every dental student's hands...

    The index is great. I can easily find an analogy to use to explain a case. I usually have my financial coordinator bookmark it for me to read before the patient comes in for the presentation. This is a wonderful book.

    I admit my financial coordinator has caught me using 50 cent words. Once a patient told her that I was "talking to impress." I didn't see that patient come back. I know it's important to talk WITH patients, not TO them. One read of this book and it's like the red-tailed monkey story inside. I catch myself every time and simplify my explanations and answers to questions. Needless to say, our production has gone up substantially. But better than that, the patients who are accepting my treatment plans are the kind of people I want in the practice -- ones that appreciate what we do for them. They tend to be the ones who ask for the best and then take care of it, once they understand WHY I am recommending it. Dental Analogies makes it happen.

    Since having this book I'm finding it much easier to explain implants, root planing, and a bunch of other procedures that we hygienists understand, but patients don't. The examples given to share really do help patients' "light bulbs" go off!

    Great book. No wonder it's a best seller here and on Amazon -- and in it's 3rd printing! It really is magical how reading it through brands the imagery in so you remember what to say when asked by patients. I think if I read it enough times I'll eventually be able to get rid of my dental gobbledeegoop!
