If you practice dentistry in Arizona (or if you're a dental student at ASDOH or MWU), you might know me. I've been the marcom manager and managing editor at the Arizona Dental Association since 2010. I know dentistry. Phoenix and Scottsdale dentists hire me to film their dental practice marketing videos because they work—they bring in patients, and I offer a 100% guarantee you and your team will love working with me.
This video will give you a sampling of some of the work I've done for dental practices. Check out this video first and then feel free to explore anything below that catches your eye.
Notice some dentists focus on the clinical aspect of their practice—others focus on the friendly vibe and chair-side manner. Whatever we've decided to focus on, I've found is that each dentist and practice is unique, and it's my job to discover what that is (by investing time asking your questions and then listening to you).
You can be sure that the video we create will be a genuine and compelling reflection of your practice's personality. You're going to say, "Yep, that's our practice."
Quick impromptu video done for friend and fellow editor Dr. Eric in Safford, Arizona. This is proof that dentists are as much artists as they are scientists and healthcare professionals. Quite an honor to feature Dr. Eric “the artist." As a hobbyist, he works in tile/mosaic, oils, graphite, stained glass, clay, fabric (weaving), etching/engraving, and in this video, water colors.
Dr. Allison and her team in Phoenix, AZ, were wonderful to work with. The script and creative direction for the promo video I came up with while eating lunch—sometimes inspiration comes to you quickly! Because of her patient load, we had to split the filming into two shoots—a week a part. Everyone wore the exact same thing, but the patient forgot I'd asked her to make sure her nails were painted the same. I did my best to edit this out, but if you look closely, you'll see it.
Jeremy's note: ah, as you'd guess, this was a fun one to film. As a member of the Arizona Dental Association, I've participated in several of these throughout my career. Each year they seem to raise the bar and get more organized. Special thanks to all of the dentists who volunteer their skill and time to help these kids maintain bright, healthy smiles. I can't forget to thank ASDOH and the students down there—they put on an incredibly fun event. I've never seen kids so excited to see a dentist. The creative direction was to put together something together that was upbeat and fun—something that showcased the spectacle/event as a whole rather than just the clinical portion of it.
Jeremy's note: If you scroll down this page, you'll see a longer video I filmed for Dr. Curtis, it involves an interview. For this video, he wanted something that was upbeat and really fun. Dr. Curtis has kind of a silly quirky side, so while this video works great for his young patients, I understand it might not work for a Phoenix or Scottsdale periodontist, endodontist, prosthodontist, etc.
Quite an distinction to work with Dr. Jackie and KC at PEG. These endodontists know a lot of videographers, marketing agencies, and video production companies in Phoenix, so I was honored they chose to work with me. The shoots for their Phoenix and Paradise Valley offices were the epitome of a family effort—both of our families helped out!
Jeremy's note: Coincidentally, I'd met and actually interviewed Dr. Harman in a random chance meeting at the state dental meeting in Phoenix, Arizona (Phoenix Convention Center) years before. I remembered Dr. Harman, and thankfully, not only had he remembered me, but I'd gotten considerably better at filming and directing.
Dr. Bazargan was a joy to work with, and of all of the videos I filmed for Sonoran Desert Dentistry, this one was my favorite. I think Dr. Bazargan was really surprised how fast I was able to film and put this together, and while I can't say for certain, I think this video was her favorite too!
Wow, Dr. Shawn (North Phoenix / Deer Valley, Arizona), his family, and I had a long day filming (along with Dr. Howie), but we had a great time. This is the first dental practice Dr. Shawn has owned, so this shoot was a big deal to him. He was a little hesitant about interviewing in front of the camera, but he did fine. Also, a good video editor will always make the subject, in this case a dentist, sound great. They loved the video, but the bloopers at the end are what they enjoyed most of all. Dr. Shawn has a fun approach to dentistry, so showing more of a personal side was a great fit for him.
Jeremy's note: I traveled to Oro Valley to write a story, and take photos, on Dr. Hiremath for the Arizona Dental Association's monthly publication (as the managing editor). While I was down there, I filmed an impromptu video, which turned out okay considering there was no planning, no script, and that was the first day I'd every seen Dr. Hiremath.
This is an actual set up. Check out how much gear goes into making certain that you, your team, and your patients giving testimonials look and sound genuine, confident, and trustworthy.
Jeremy's note: I visited Dr. Kyla Hollen to do a story on her for the dental association's monthly publication. Filming a promotional video wasn't on my "to do" list heading down to Tucson that day. Because we had a little extra time before the mock patients arrived, I put this together for her. I'd never met Dr. Hollen before that day, and we pretty much threw everything together at the last minute. During the interview, the cameras are sitting atop a step ladder and a handful of Dr. Hollen's books from dental school. The out-of-frame mic was placed on a cushion/stool right in front of her but below the camera.
I put this video together for the state dental association—Arizona, of course. I wheeled around a cart full of gear in the Phoenix Convention Center for a couple of days to capture this annual dental meeting. Fun time. It's too bad that the public feel that all dentists are stuffy and uptight—in some cases, they couldn't be more wrong.
Dr. Sadia, Scottsdale, Arizona, was the first dentist who sat down with me before her interview to discuss specifically what she wanted to talk about—a brilliant idea. Because of this, I was able to shepherd her through the interview process (making sure what she said on camera matched what we'd talked about before the cameras were rolling). Dr. Sadia was a little apprehensive about speaking on camera, but she did wonderfully. I was just disappointed that I couldn't include more of her interview into the final cut.
Jeremy's note: The creative direction for this video took a sharp departure from any other Mission of Mercy video I'd ever seen (or been involved in). I wanted something that captured the feeling of the holidays and the spirit of goodwill and giving. Rather than getting bogged down with boring interview footage (which is ubiquitous in most Mission of Mercy videos), the focus was on more of the celebration of helping others who were in need. It’s always been a pleasure to be a part of such a massive community outreach.
Jeremy's note: Amy's been a good friend for years, and when it comes to transitions and advising dentists on their data and team, she's the tops. We'd talked about putting together a video for a while—glad we were able to put this together. We "borrowed" one of her client's dental practices on a Saturday. This was a fun shoot—everyone had a good time. I did have a bad back that weekend—thankfully I got through the shoot with no problems. For the creative direction, we wanted to focus on Amy as an approachable professional. I think she was a little surprised I went with the intro that I did. But dentists love that part. It shows an unguarded, spontaneous glimpse into Amy's personality—people (including dentists) love seeing others "being real."
Hard at work in a shoot in Flagstaff, Arizona. To work around the doctors' schedules and a busy patient load, I was on the road at 4:15am. For me, this is all in a day's work. Great shoot, but yes, I did take nap when I got back to Phoenix.
Dr. Sam's testimonial was a complete surprise to me. During a video shoot for Amy (seen above), he just showed up. It's not often that dentists pop up during a shoot, but Amy asked if I'd be open to film a testimonial from him. Sure. Things on a film set need to be organized, but they need to be flexible too. Dr. Sam was a pro during the interview—I had him in and out of there at no time at all (something he appreciated because he was in a rush).
This is the second office I filmed for PEG—this one for endodontist Dr. Susan in Paradise Valley. It was fun mounting the GoPro camera on the CBCT arm that rotates around the dental patient.
Below are just a portion of videos I've filmed for Dr. Brad and his dental team in Scottsdale, Arizona. I've been to their dental practice so many times that it feels like a second home to me. For the day, I am treated just like another member of the team—I am honored by that.
I was so engrossed with what I was doing, I didn't know someone was taking behind-the-scenes photos. It's important to me that we create a video that brings in patients and shares your passion. It's just as important that you and your team have fun and enjoy the experience. Here Dr. Ho is having a little fun :)
Jeremy's note: the idea for this video just popped into my head one day. Within 48hrs I had it scripted, filmed, narrated (yes, that's me speaking), and the final cut finished. Videos don't usually come together that quickly, but this one had a lot of momentum. The focus of the video was twofold: to edify current members of the Arizona Dental Association; second, to encourage non-member dentists to look into what the dental association is doing for them, for dentistry, and for all Arizona citizens as it relates to oral health.
I put this together for the state dental association's women dental CE and social outlet. They wanted something fun and upbeat that would show the community and camaraderie the women dentists enjoyed. I recruited some family to help out at the beginning of the video.
Continuing on in promoting the women in dentistry program, I worked with Dr. Jeanette (Peoria, Arizona) and her family for this video that shows a day in the life of a frenetically-busy women dentist (and mom). Dr. Jeanette had loads of energy and was a blast to work with. She's an exceptional dentist, but I have a feeling she might have been a solid actor had she taken a different path in life!
This was another idea I came up with at lunchtime. I've trained with these boxers and boxing trainers before, and it occurred to me that organized dentistry functions a lot like a coach, resource, and a mentor in your boxing corner (especially when things get rough). Special thanks to my boxing buds Billy, Rollin, and Uncle Jerry, for their help.
Video shot to promote a new business management program to new dentists in Arizona. This THEOS (To Help Each Other Succeed) program is an ADA award-winning program in its second year. Special thanks to Clinical Instructor at the Center for Advanced Oral Health (ASDOH, in Mesa, Arizona) Dr. Mai-Ly for her help.
Special thanks to AzDA dentists who helped out: Dr. Charlie Clark, Dr. Michael Cavender, Dr. Jennifer Enos, and Dr. Brett Dameron. Quick video I put together for the dental association's new leadership recruitment program for new dentists. I had a really short time to film these spots (doctors are always busy)—Yikes!
Dental patients of Dr. Eric, Dr. Kay, and Dr. Darren in Safford, Arizona. These people were like family to the dentists—some of their families had been visiting these dentists for several generations.
Yep, this is another lunchtime inspiration I had to film this promotion for the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. Tal and his team (Scottsdale, Arizona), along with our team, had a blast. We ended filming around 10pm and everyone was pretty silly by then. Dr. Tal had a great sense of humor and was a joy to work with. This video was filmed early in my videography career. It was fun, but I can spot a lot of things I'd do differently now.
Dr. Melanie (North Scottsdale, Arizona) was probably one of the most laid-back dentists I've worked with. She had some great stories about serving in the Navy and providing treatment to Marines and other service persons. Thank you for your service!
I had actually gotten footage of Dr. Austin (Scottsdale, AZ) in some other videos, so I was excited to be able to film a video for just him. He's got a quick and dry sense of humor that made the shoot a lot of fun—a lot like his dentist brother, Dr. Brad.
This is the second of the two videos I filmed for orthodontist Dr. Alan (in Chandler, Arizona). This video needed to have an element of fun, but not quite as up-tempo and silly as the shorter version I'd done for him.
I was apprehensive about including this video on this page. This was the first video I filmed for the dental association, and only the third video I'd ever filmed. I came up with the idea of the script and creative direction while driving in the car. Dr. Fred and his team were great sports—we had a blast as you can tell by the bloopers, but it's artistically and technically not my best work. Thankfully, I've gotten a lot better over the years.
This is the only video that I have featuring a dental hygienist (RDH). This is Sue in Scottsdale, Arizona. Sue's worked for a handful of dentists in her career, and she knows her stuff. In addition to this video for her, I have her featured in a number of other videos on oral cancer screening, electric toothbrushes, and dental floss aids.
