1112 Seven Principles of Highly Successful Dentists with Bill and Christina Blatchford: Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Bill Blatchford developed a large and profitable practice in Corvallis, Oregon starting in 1970. Dentist would come to visit to see what he was doing . He was also asked to speak at meetings all over the US and Canada. It developed into a business coaching dentist how to live a healthy life style and to develop a practice to support their life, not the other way around where life is what is left over. He has spoken at every major dental meeting in North America and many other countries including India, Dubai, Egypt, England, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand. He and his wife Carolyn have been married 52 years. They raised two daughters, Tiffany and Christina. Dr. Christina has followed him into dentistry and now is the owner of Blatchford Solutions. Bill and his wife enjoy traveling, adventure trips, cycling, skiing, fishing, boating, physical fitness. He and Carolyn spend winters at their home in Mexico and summers on their boat on the BC coast and Alaska. Bill has recently started Blatchford Transitions helping dentist buying, selling and merging practices. 

Before becoming co CEO of Blatchford Solutions with my Dad two years ago, I had several different careers leading me down this path. My parents were encouraging and supportive of any direction, as long as it was forward, that I chose to take in my career. I chose a degree in Fashion Merchandising, my Dad says I majored in shopping! from the University of Arizona. Working as a sales associate at Nordstrom for a year, I learned much about sales and myself. Retail did not allow me to have the life balance so I chose another degree in Commercial Interior Design and worked in this field for five years. I designed medical and dental offices and I enjoyed the creativity this allowed.

Yet, I was still seeking more. I craved being able to make a difference in the lives of others plus the lifestyle I had seen my Dad provide our family. Additionally, I had come to the conclusion that I was unemployable. I wanted to be my own boss and make the big decisions, all signs pointed to a career in dentistry.

Growing up, I was able to see that my Dad was able to provide a full life for our family. I saw dentistry as a great profession. It was during my childhood, I saw the changes in him as he wanted more time with us and to pursue his interests. He wanted more return and to share the wealth with his team. This lead to the creation of Blatchford Solutions, one of the most trusted Coaching Programs for dental practices today.

I purchased my first practice as soon as I graduated OHSU School of Dentistry. I also am very fortunate to get to raise Grace, age 7, with my husband, Dave.

After success as a dentist, I started coaching some clients and found it is just the best feeling ever to coach our Doctors to reach and succeed further than they thought possible! As I have grown into the co CEO position, I feel strongly in continuing to practice dentistry. I feel it gives our program a new relevancy. My experience mirrors that of new practice owners with new ideas, new excitement and new energy, along with a new vision for the business.

My plan is to help my dad take Blatchford Solutions to the next level of dental business coaching. With new ideas, new programs, new seminars, new growth, my question to you is…….are you ready to take your life and practice to the next level?

Christina is a mother and wife first.  A dentist second. She loves dentistry but understands the value of quality time spent with her family and friends.  She enjoys the aesthetics of dentistry and has learned how to pursue her artistic talents in this field.  Her father, Dr. Bill Blatchford was a successful dentist and it seemed the natural progression for her to follow in his footsteps.  Originally, Christina pursued a fashion path and received her B of A.  After working at Nordstroms for a bit she realized she needed more.  She went back to school and became an interior architect specializing in dental practices.  After a bit of time she realized she wanted the lifestyle she was given growing up and needed to pursue a career in dentistry to allow these opportunities for not only her but her husband and young daughter.  She now works two to three days a week and takes eight weeks off every year.  There is a specific formula to this lifestyle that Christina and her father would like to share with more dentists.  Blatchford Solutions is a practice management company that helps only fifty doctors a year pursue the lifestyle they want to live.  Too many dentists run on a rat race of a huge overhead, working four to five days a week and taking maybe two to three weeks of vacation a year.

Excellence in the practice of Dental Medicine is a proud tradition in the Spodak family. Dr. Craig Spodak is a third generation dentist who earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the acclaimed Tufts University, graduating with highest honors. He joined his father, Dr. Myles Spodak, in his practice in Delray Beach, Fla. in 1998 with a dream to change the way patients experience dental care. He inherited the company in 2006 and immediately began to develop a new vision for the modern dental practice with a goal to deliver comprehensive dental care from a team of general and specialty dentists in one convenient, 13,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, LEED Gold Certified facility.

His dream was to change the way patients experience dental care and worked tirelessly to reinvent the patient perception of just how great a dental appointment could be. All phases of dentistry are performed from a team of nine dentists in 18 operatories and surgical suites, in addition to having an on-site lab with lab technicians and master ceramists who provide same-day dentistry. He also places a strong importance on living out the company’s core values, which enables the team to provide patients with the highest caliber of comprehensive dental care while consistently exceeding expectations.

Dr. Craig is a pioneer for eradicating childhood tooth decay and founded the All-Star Smiles Foundation with Marlins’ All-Star fielder, Giancarlo Stanton, in 2016.

He is also committed to helping other dentists uncover costly fees they’re paying for their 401(k) plans and was recently featured in Tony Robbins’ new book, Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook. As the brand ambassador, he is introducing the world to a next generation 401(k) plan.

Dr. Craig has also committed himself to expanding his own professional skills and has garnered various advanced credentials, including becoming a Top 1 Percent provider of Invisalign®. He also lectures nationally about the benefits of this teeth-straightening method.

Beyond his professional interests, Dr. Craig is very active in the Delray Beach community and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the All-Star Smiles Foundation that he co-founded with Marlins All-star fielder, Giancarlo Stanton; as a partner with Dr. Peter Boulden on the Bullet Proof Dental Practice podcast; as a partner with Chuck Blakeman on the Get off the Treadmill Summit (GOTT Summit); on the Board of Directors for Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA); has served as Chairman of the Delray Beach Planning and Zoning Board; is a national lecturer for creating team culture in business; is a fitness and motor sports enthusiast; a champion of ecological responsibility; an accomplished private plane pilot; and is conversant in five languages. Spodak Dental Group was named a 2017 Inc5000 fastest-growing business, and Dr. Craig was also featured on the February 2017 cover of The Progressive Dentist Magazine and was named the 2012 Business Person of the Year by the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce.
