Clear aligner workflows
Since 9th grade I knew I wanted to be a dentist.
I have always set ambitious goals and achieved them.
When my wife and I became practice owners in 2008, I was convinced that we would help shape the future of dentistry and change the world for the better - one smile at a time.
We managed to create a dental practice in Skagen that became a reference clinic for several international companies. Within the dental industry, few colleauges believed it was possible to create this kind of practice in Skagen.
We managed to become leaders in digital workflows because we had a dream team with unique skills in clear aligners (Since 2008), guided surgery (Since 2010), digital smile design (Since 2012) and complex restorative treatments.
Our efforts earned me a position as international key opinion leader for KaVo.
During 9 years I had the opportunity to influence KaVo's product development, just as KaVo gave me the opportunity to lecture internationally.
I was the first Danish dentist to undergo the complete continuing education at the Pankey Institute in the USA, and I served as a Pankey mentor for 4 years. Together with dentist Marc Onuoha, I created a 2-day hands-on continuing education program in functional occlusion and comprehensive treatment planning, which we held in our dental practice in Skagen.
Our team wanted to revolutionise the way a dental practice could differentiate itself. Together we proved that an experience design with unique customer service could change patient behaviour and perceptions of the value of the practice. Our approach to the patient experience in the dental office allowed us to reduce daily stress levels while being far more productive.
Pain in my neck and back, combined with increasing numbness in my fingers, forced me to end my career as a practicing dentist in late 2018. Unfortunately, I was unable to complete my accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), which I had started in 2016.
Since 2018, I have been helping dentists, practice owners and the dental industry grow their business in ways that help them reach their goals faster.
By the end of 2018, I ceased my practice in order to dedicate my full attention to serving as a consultant, advisor, and coach within the realm of dentistry and the dental industry.
Through a combination of specialized courses, on-site clinic training, and personalized online consultations, I assist dentists in achieving enhanced outcomes with reduced exertion. This results in greater personal freedom, increased income, diminished stress, and heightened professional contentment.
My contributions extend to fostering advancements within the dental sector and dental chains by optimizing internal processes, thereby bolstering sales figures and boosting levels of employee and customer contentment.
A particular area of expertise lies in the streamlining and profitability of clear aligner workflows. This encompasses the effective execution and delegation of tasks, as well as adept patient communication strategies that cultivate a desire to invest in ortho-restorative treatments such as Invisalign, ClearCorrect, SureSmile, or Spark.
Presently, Hatt Consulting boasts a clientele spanning 15 diverse countries, predominantly situated in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia.
