by bSudhakar R. Chokka, DDSb
The dentistry would be easy if the patients would just get out of their own way.
The Smile Generation's insight:

Dr. Sudhakar R. Chokka – a PDS®-supported dentist – explains how the game has changed when it comes to case acceptance. Dentists today can not rely on patients making an emotionless, rational decision about their dental treatment. You have to reach them on an emotional level and create trust.
