Real Transformation through Connection, Communication, and “Story Listening” with Dr. John Gordon

Real Transformation through Connection, Communication, and “Story Listening” with Dr. John Gordon

People crave connection, and connection is achieved through effective communication. Dr. John Gordon joins Dr. Sabrina to discuss the significance of asking patients, “Tell me your story.” This approach creates a more meaningful experience and a deeper connection than the traditional doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Gordon shares how he prioritized patient stories, fostered a positive work culture, and unlocked powerful insights on the journey to build a more human-centered dental practice to empower people with transformational change. Join us for this inspirational conversation!

Dr. John Gordon hosts the Fearless Dentistry Podcast. He was in private dental practice in Kansas City for 42 years. His passion for his work came alive when he transitioned from general dentistry to a lifestyle niche dental practice dedicated to making a difference in people’s lives through exceptional patient experiences. We are going to find out what happened when Dr. John began asking patients to tell him their stories and forming connections on a deeper emotional level. He loves mentoring and sharing what’s helped him develop and maintain the practice that he’s proud of for all the right reasons. In his retirement, he has found a new passion for his podcast. His purpose is to stimulate, encourage, and motivate his audience to take action on their dreams with courage, curiosity, focus, and commitment.
