For most dental practices that hit a wall, the real reason is they’re just like everyone else. They’ve built an efficient practice that doesn’t stand out from the competition. Although that’s a great foundation upon which to build a thriving practice, it doesn’t give your patients a reason to go out of their way to make you their dentist. They won’t leave with a WOW! experience. They won’t tell their friends and family about your practice. And they won’t become raving fans.

It’s no secret that dentists experience burnout at a higher rate than professionals in almost any other industry do. Unless you get help or take action to do things differently, the constant pull between treating patients and running a business makes burnout a real possibility for any dentist.
One of the first things you’ll learn after making the decision to grow your dental practice is you’ll never scale your practice if you try to do everything yourself. If you want to grow, you’ll need help. Internally, this means finding the right team to transform your practice, so you won’t have to do everything yourself. Internal team members can take tasks off your hands and help you document and implement systems to help your practice run without you.

Building a successful dental practice can be stressful. Three of the top causes of stress for most dentists are heavy financial burdens (such as student loans), rising overhead (such as rent, salary commitments, and material costs), and operational stressors (such as needing to do everything yourself). Those other stressors can cause any dentist to burn out, unless they address them very intentionally. Here are three simple shifts you can make in your practice to combat these burdens, reduce your chances of burnout, and position you to make more money while working less.
When building a dental practice, most dentists know to hire team members like dental assistants, hygienists, other dentists, lab technicians, administrative personnel, and dental specialists like oral surgeons or orthodontists. Those team members help take care of day-to-day operations of your practice, so you don’t need to do everything yourself. They’re vital to building a practice to run without you. They also provide the capacity for you to grow your practice because you can’t grow a practice unless you have the ability to serve more people. If you want to grow your practice exponentially, however, you need to have two other types of people involved.
