Creating your Ideal Practice

Guidelines for success!

Managing Your Accounts Receivable

After providing state-of- the-art service to your patients, a large portion of the financial compensation you deserve gets bogged down in accounts receivable. You end up spending time, money, and aggravating hours attempting to collect for your services, and sometimes too little or no avail.

Enhancing Staff Morale

You arrive at the office in the morning fired up, enthusiastic to see patients, but you’re soon brought down by the unmotivated state your team seems to be in. Low morale blunts everyone’s enthusiasm, negatively impacts your team’s production, and reflects an unpleasant office environment to your patients.

Finding Good People for Your Practice

You may not believe it, but just as there is no shortage of unhealthy mouths out there, there’s no shortage of good people looking for the “right package” and the right practice culture which will attract them to you. Knowing how to recruit good people is the key.

Increasing Your Profitability

Profitability is dependent upon more than just increasing fees, down-sizing, and cutting corners. If it were that easy, you wouldn’t need to worry about productivity and overhead. Low profitability doesn’t allow you to grow your practice and still take a fair salary to provide for yourself and your family.

Increasing Treatment Acceptance & Improving Patient Education

You know absolutely that a patient will need the treatment you and your hygiene team recommend. You know how valuable it is to his/her health and well-being. But you can’t get your patient to agree, and see its value as you do. So, you minimize, phase, or discount treatment.

Increasing Your Staff Retention

It’s hard to find good people, and almost just as difficult to keep the good ones. High turnover creates dissention, hurts morale, causes lost productivity, decreases efficiency, and creates a financial burden on the practice.

Reducing Stress

Stress or worry can occur for any number of reasons. It can be very detrimental to you personally and to your practice. It’s probably the result of too many things left unaddressed or not completed. Stress breeds uncertainty and creates a tense office environment.

Re-charging and Re-gaining your Passion/ Purpose for Dentistry

If you’ve lost your passion for dentistry, feel uninspired and unmotivated, it’s a sign you’ve lost sight of your purpose, your primary goal or aim, or the core reason you decided to become a dentist, which was to help others.
