Every Dental Practice Needs to Find its “Secret Recipe” for Success
When you’ve been practicing dentistry for more than three decades like Dr. Timothy Kosinski, you’ve figured out what works and what doesn’t. Dr. Kosinski, who owns a private practice in Bingham Farms, Michigan, agreed to share a few secrets to his success; that is, high-quality products and services that have benefited his practice by allowing him to shine in the eyes of his patients.
With the help of his 10-person staff, Dr. Kosinski provides oral health care services including but not limited to cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, and special needs dentistry. When he’s not in the office, he is an Affiliate Adjunct Clinical Professor at the University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Dentistry, which is also his alma mater; lecturing on grafting and laser techniques; training dentists on how to place implants; or mentoring the latest generation of dentists through support he offers via the Engel Institute Dental Implant Training Program.
“I was blessed with great mentors early in my career,” Dr. Kosinski states, “and it feels great to be able to give back to the community, the profession, and patients in the greater Detroit area.”
Though technology and material preferences have changed over the years, Dr. Kosinski reveals that a dentist’s loyalty is constant. “Dentistry is a hard job, but it’s a great profession. And dentists are very loyal to those we work with. It’s a small society, but we tend to gravitate toward, and stick beside, those people/companies with whom we share the same goals and work ethic,” he reveals.
DenMat is a company Dr. Kosinski has stood beside for many years, thanks to its quality products and services. And today, there are a few he can’t live without.
“The NV® PRO3 Microlaser, whether used for restorative crown and bridge, periodontal pocket and bacterial reduction or treatment of aphthous ulcers, is an invaluable tool I have come to rely on in everyday practice,” Dr. Kosinski says. “My dental hygienists use it as well, for both pocket reduction and bacterial reduction.
A more recent use of the laser is growing in popularity and offers the real opportunity for dentists to make a big impact on patients: treatment of aphthous ulcers. “My friend’s son, who plays college football, broke his ankle and was very stressed about his injury, which led to a cold sore. He came in, I treated it, and it quickly resolved the problem. They were both incredibly grateful.”
Other secret weapons, which are available at DenMat, include high-quality impression material, high-quality ad esthetic restorations, and dental loupes. “I’m such a big fan of loupes that I bought them for myself and my dental hygienists, as well,” Dr. Kosinski shares.
Finally, Dr. Kosinski realizes that the success of his practice relies on the final outcome of his cases. A perfectionist by nature, it is important to him that excellence is achieved in every aspect of his dentistry, so that patients are pleased—and referrals are shared. But in order to achieve this, Dr. Kosinski expects patients to communicate openly with him.
“I tell my patients, ‘Look… you won’t hurt my feelings if you aren’t pleased with the outcome. You can tell me if you don’t like something and we’ll address it,” he shares. And the thing he loves most about DenMat is that he can employ the same open lines of communication.
“What sets DenMat apart from the competition is its unparalleled communication, which improves the efficiency of my practice and my proficiency as a dentist,” Dr. Kosinski states. “Communication is key. And if a patient isn’t 100% satisfied, DenMat stands behind me in the event I need to communicate that.”
In review, every dental practice needs to find its “secret recipe” for success. For Dr. Kosinski’s thriving practice, secrets to succeeding in the highly competitive dental industry include top-quality products and services, as well as open communication and top-notch customer service and support.
“Behind every successful dentist is a great support team, and that extends beyond office staff—it includes our dental laboratory partners and service providers,” he concludes. “Partnering with DenMat means we all win, but most importantly so do our patients.”
