Maybe you want to open your first dental practice.
Maybe you’ve been at it for 10,15, 20 years!
Maybe you’re ready for an associate or adding locations.
Maybe you’re ready for an exit strategy.
No matter where you are in your career as a dentist, what makes a practice successful is the systems that you have in place. If you’re scratching your head wondering “what systems?”, you probably don’t have them to begin with. It’s typical that dental practices are operating based on the varying levels of experience of the team they have employed versus having systems and training to elevate your team to their fullest potential. Do you think Chick-Fil-A or Starbucks have systems and training on those systems, have anything to do with how prosperous they are? You can go to a Starbucks anywhere in the country, scratch that…anywhere in the WORLD and your Caramel Macchiato will taste the same as it does at your neighborhood location…and the customer service provided remains consistent. How do they do it? Systems my friend.
In dental practices, systems and training are undervalued thus underutilized mostly because you don’t know what you don’t know. Having systems in place to increase efficiencies, create an excellent patient experience and oh yes, sell how dentistry improves lives are the keys to running a practice with lower stress and higher profitability.
Ask yourself, do I have systems for:
- Case Presentation
- Team bonus
- Recruiting and training staff
- Team communication
And the list goes on! If the answer to this question is “no” or even “I’m not sure”, than you are losing money, working harder instead of smarter, and basing your success on the hope that your team can get through the ups and downs and the day to day without pulling their hair out. It is extremely stressful to work without a compass guiding you in the “how to’s” and “what to do’s”!
