100% Case Acceptance, Every Time | Dr. Gary DeWood

at Hillwood Country Club 

We were taught that case acceptance is the Holy Grail of what we do. It was defined for us as the percentage of people who complete what you (the dentist) tell them they should do. Since most people do not do that, dentists learn to modulate their “should” to their patients. Why tell them about something they are not going to do? This program seeks to change your paradigm. 100% case acceptance is not only possible, it’s easy. Just wait until they ask. We will spend our time together understanding how that’s possible if you can learn to stay in the question. Case Acceptance has to occur before a Case Presentation can be heard, and that is so very different than the training we all received.



● Connect values and expectations to dentistry for their patients.

● Help patients experience the issues they came with before recommending the issues be treated.

● Stay in the Question until the Questions come from the patient.

● Understand that everyone wants to pay for what they WANT.

● Help patients ask for their best stuff.
