Open questions to dental patients….

Hi Chris…read your blog this evening and very much enjoyed the £33k sale story!
I like the question that you’ve created…it struck me that it could be opened up a little so that you don’t get “No” too easily and quickly! How about this?

“Since we last met, what changes have there been in your personal or professional circumstances, that would merit a conversation about your dental appearance?”

Best regards as ever

Richard Collard
