Dr. Venincasa Still a Top Rated Dallas Dentist by Online Patient Reviews at Mid-Year

We are deeply humbled to have such a nice online reputation. We rely on actual patient online reviews to help get the word out on who we are. We are very thankful our patients have been open to writing reviews concerning my dental practice on their own. As many of you know, we do not entice prospective patients to our practice with discount coupons in the mail, with membership in a discounted insurance program, with those fancy expensive local magazine advertisements, nor with online discount coupons from marketing websites. Instead, we rely on more traditional techniques like providing honest information

A Mini-Smile Makeover: Whitening and Bonding

A smile is very much like a window. Many judge others by their smile. While this may not be “right”, it is true. A smile is judged to gain insight perhaps into another’s confidence, personality, or “worthiness”. This is all very unfortunate. However, we do have patients explaining this very thing. They want to have more self-esteem. They want to look better. They think a better smile can assist them in gaining something they desire like a job or a significant other. In our office we have a unique ability to perhaps change lives. We understand this, humbly. This sweet

Dentists and Spa Services

We have all seen the ads either in the mail, in magazines, or in professionally produced pamphlets of dentists who provide spa services in addition to their dental services.  Certainly we all enjoy convenience.  And one-stop shopping for services is enticing.  But let’s think about this.  Why would a dentist decide to provide spa services? Some dentists provide spa services to create an additional center for generating revenue.  They may want to make more money.  Should this be a problem?  Of course dentists have the right to do this.  But what does this say about the dental services provided?  This

Price-Shopping Dental Fees

We have all done it.  We have all had times when we shop for the best price.  Certainly this makes sense.  Why would we want to pay more for the exact same thing?  Yes, there is work involved and this takes time.  However, we can save a lot of money to price-shop at times. Many do the same with dental care.  Is there a problem with this?  Let’s think about it.  When we are buying, say, a car battery, we can be specific about the brand and the months of the warranty of the battery.  We can also be specific

This Dentist is Passionate About Dentistry and Patients

I know many people who feel pretty good about their jobs.  They may not seem excited about their job but they are “ok” with it.  Some may feel grateful to have a job.  For them job satisfaction itself may not be that important.  I think you get the picture. Well for me, I still very much have a passion for this.  For some reason I wanted to be a dentist since I was four years-old.  That feeling never left me.  It has always been there.  Somehow the feeling and thought were ingrained or implanted within me.  Was it simply a

The Value of Work (This Dentist, This Dental Practice, The Value of Patients)

Many of us do work whether we are at a job or we raise our children at home.  For many of us this work can be a drudgery, it can drain the energy out of us, or we think that life is passing us by.  Some of us may not work at all or we may simply pass our days playing or doing what we enjoy.  I write not to judge.  I write today simply to offer another way to view work.  As my life has progressed, especially this past six years, I have found a strengthening and life-giving way

Our Honest, Actively-Managed, Patient-Centered, Trustworthy Dentist Website

Like you I have done some surfing on the world wide web.  Many sites are cluttered, difficult to navigate, and outdated.  As far as dental websites, I have noticed similar qualities.  When I embarked on having my own website a few years ago I decided I wanted something simpler, easier to use, honest, and unique.  I had no idea what the site would look like.  However, I did know I wanted it to be more personal, more engaging, and more useful. Many of you may not know that this dentist writes all his website content.  I do not hire a

Dentist Coupons for Cleanings, Exams, X-Rays, and Whitening

We have all seen them; dentist coupons ranging from $39-79 or more for anything from cleanings, exams, x-rays, and teeth whitening.  These coupons can come in the form of e-mails to your inbox every day from a provider marketing for many businesses at the same time, in the form of an envelope full of coupons for many businesses, or perhaps in magazines or newspapers.  These coupons of course are meant to entice prospective patients to call for an appointment.  Is this a good deal? It sure sounds like a good deal.  These services are being provided at cost or even

Our Wonderful Dallas area Dental Patient Reviews: Award Winning!

I have often written of our valued patients.  We do have the best patients in the world.  I know this because I know them.  Because of our dear patients and their making the effort to provide online reviews on my practice on their own time, we have been recognized by an independent online research organization for our quality reviews.  For the second year in a row we have won in 2012 the Talk of the Town Patient Satisfaction Award.
