Your View From the Top. New You as a Dental Practice Owner
November 5, 2020
Soon it will be a new year and we are currently in deep contemplation. A lot going on in our world today!
Now is your time to consider what you will do differently next year and how you will accomplish your goals.
A new year, 2021, will be a breath of fresh air for many of us. What a year it’s been!
2021, is most likely going to be a year to reset. It will be a chance to accomplish things you were not able to do in 2020. Life got a little messy for all of us during 2020!
Let’s talk about where you may be today and then determine where you can be when 2021 arrives.
- Do you feel like you are at a crossroads today?
- Do you feel like the future is unknown?
- Which side of the fence do you see yourself?
- Right side or left side?
- Are you focused on this past year or the great year ahead?
While you may not know what lies ahead in 2021, what you do have control over are the decisions you make today.
This is what you have control over today.
You get to choose which direction you wish your dental practice to go when 2021 arrives.
What plans are you creating right to have your best year in 2021?
Now is the time to create your success plan and your hygiene department is your biggest asset.
Once you decide to focus on your hygiene department, take a look at your number of hygiene patients who need to be reactivated. Doctor, do you think your team is reactivating all the overdue hygiene patients? I challenge you to take a look at how many patients are (or are not) being reactivated each day this week.
- Do you know how many of your adult patients have been treated for gingivitis and periodontitis?
- Do you understand that half-of our adult Americans (35 yrs of age and above) have some level of gum disease?
Most dental offices have less than 35% of their adult patients treated for gum disease. Lots of room for growth here!
The other area you must look at is, how many hygiene patients leave their appointment with a restorative diagnosis and actually schedule for treatment with doctor at the end of their hygiene appointment?
This is another HUGE opportunity to grow your dental practice productivity. You will never know what this real $ number is unless you look with an expert, who truly understands how to read these numbers and how you can tap into the opportunity to get them on your schedule ASAP.
If you have Dentrix, Eaglesoft or Open Dental, I can easily show you numerous, -thousands-of-dollars, in patient opportunities, that are waiting for you to tap into each daily in your schedule.
I can still show you these numbers (KPIs and opportunities for your future success) if you have a different practice management software (PMS) but need you to “pull” some numbers from your PMS. I am open to showing the opportunities no matter what PMS you have.
Our 21 Day Hygiene Department Challenge begins now and includes a customized strategy session to see where your untapped potential lies.
Once you have established your goals to achieve during the next 21 days, you and your team will view the daily challenge videos, implementation guides and receive 6 CE Credits once you review the training videos.
The winners of our challenge receive weekly prizes and a grand prize valued over $2,7000.
You will be challenged over 21 days to increase productivity in these three areas:
- Increase the number of hygiene patients reactivated
- Increase the number of adult patients who complete perio therapy (including gingivitis)
- Increase the number of hygiene patients with a restorative diagnosis who schedule their restorative care at the end of their hygiene appointment
