The goal of our blog is to feature weekly real-life stories for everyone to read, enjoy, and to, hopefully, gain some useful tidbits of information about crucial topics such as the best ways to find a dentist and dental care overall.
To further this mission, this week, we're kicking off a new series of informative articles focused on interviews with our Pioneer-dentists.
Dr. Dimitar Raynov graciously accepted our invitation to become our second featured pioneer dentist and joined us for an interview to give us the inside scoop on how the world looks like from the viewpoint of a dentist.

Interview with Dr. Dimitar RaynovA heartfelt Thank You from the DentalAce team to Dr. Raynov for setting some time aside to sit down with us for this informative conversation!
When did you first become a practicing dentist?
About 19 years ago
Did you recently open your own dental practice in Vienna?
Relatively recently. I have been practicing dentistry in Vienna since March 2018.
How would you describe your and your practice’s unique value proposition to patients?
Quick and painless … I am always there for my patients whenever they need me
About Practice Operation – Success Factors & ChallengesIn your opinion, what are the top-3 success factors that allow a dental practice to provide the best possible patient care?
How do you currently communicate with new patients prior to their first appointment (e.g., phone, e-mail, social media, etc.)?
Via phone and on social media
Are these communication channels sufficient or is there still room for improvement / need for better ways to communicate with patients?
For now, more or less sufficient
Do you use different communication channels when conversing with existing patients vs. new patients?
Not really, no

Relatively rarely – I highly value good timing
Do cancelled appointments generally remain unfilled?
Yes, occasinally, but that's not too big of a deal for me
How high is your interest in learning about a new method for offering these cancelled appointments to other patients?
Whenever I have time for a conversarion, I'd love to hear about it
Do misunderstandings occur from time to time between you and your patients regarding their specific treatment needs (e.g., recommended procedures, time frames, pricing, etc.)?
Luckily, none so far
