The Protocol: A Roadmap to Excellence with Robert Ritter, DMD & Christopher Ramsey, DMD, AAACD

With over 46 years of combined dental experience, Dr. Robert Ritter and Dr. Christopher Ramsey are paying it forward by sharing their “tried and true” results with the next generation of dentists.

The Protocol is a comprehensive 2-day course offered four times annually at their private practice in beautiful Jupiter, FL. Hosting in their practice supplies an immersive experience in mindful practice design, use of photography, chairside digital consults, and patient communication.

The impetus for The Protocol comes from what they discovered while on their own CE journeys; that typical CE courses lack the critical step of implementation into practice. The Protocol picks up where these courses leave off and dives deep with a five-step systematic approach that leads to consistent success:

  1. Persuasion: Learn the art of persuasion to communicate effectively with patients and increase the chances of case acceptance. 

  2. Photography: Learn how to produce exceptional photography to present during patient consultation or to communicate with your lab, all with a minimal investment in equipment. 

  3. Procedure: Clear up the confusion and learn how to highlight your dentistry during consultations, streamline your case planning, deliver proven results to your patients, and grow your practice using social media. 

  4. Porcelain: The Protocol highlights scientifically proven direct and lab-fabricated materials that are simple to use and provide predictable and long-lasting results. 

  5. Profit: Learn how to make decisions that keep you passionate about your practice and excited to provide the treatments suited for your community while increasing profitability. 

Dr. Ritter and Dr. Ramsey developed The Protocol for dentists who want to take their skills and practice to the next level. Participants leave the course with the knowledge and capabilities to improve their office efficiencies, patient communication, and implementation of workflows from beginning to end. Additionally, this program provides the knowledge and confidence for dentists looking to introduce indirect restorations or full-mouth rehabilitation into their practice.

Leaning on their years of experience and past continuing education, the doctors speak passionately and enthusiastically, always eager to break down complex concepts into easy-to-understand terms. Their love of dentistry is evident, and participants leave with a renewed sense of purpose and passion. “We developed this course after a combined 46 years of dentistry, along with the completion of continuums from many prestigious organizations,” states Dr. Rob Ritter. “We put it all together to make it work for your practice, all in a concise, focused, interactive, and open atmosphere in gorgeous Jupiter-Palm Beach Gardens. At the end of the course, we want you to walk away with the knowledge and ability to streamline processes, making them more reproducible, which leads to greater profitability and joy.”

Dr. Chris Ramsey adds, “What dentists need in order to be great is far more than what they think they need… CE training needs to happen now”. The missing link is taking the tips, tricks, and techniques learned in a classroom setting to successful implementation in practice. “The worst day to sign up for a great course is tomorrow because it may never come…do it now and never look back!” The Protocol separates myth from fact when it comes to focusing on the use of social media, noting that being a successful dentist on social media comes from being a successful dentist in practice first. Dr. Ramsey concludes, “Instagram greatness can be an illusion. Courses like The Protocol are a reality and can make all the difference!”
