As we’ve discussed before, building your team holds a special place of significance in your practice. Having the right team in place helps you make more money in less time because it allows you to delegate administrative tasks to others and focus your time on building your business and enjoying what’s important to you outside of your practice.Read More
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.Read More
With the right people on your team, you will protect your core values and culture, and your practice will run much more smoothly. That will allow you to delegate more, work less, and feel confident that every patient will get the same great service no matter who serves them.
With the wrong people on board, it doesn’t matter how great your vision is or how strong your systems are, results will be inconsistent at best.

This WEEK is ALL about VIDEO, and the importance of Video in growing your brand. Are you using Video to grow your brand? If not, you are missing out on a fabulous opportunity to connect with your audience. This includes your patients, and your soon to be patients.

They are able to see and hear your message and feel your passion. I often talk about being an early adopter. Video is the next BIG thing.

For many dentists, labor costs are one of the biggest expenses incurred. However, it’s interesting how many dentists don’t work to turn their employees into a profitable return on investment. If the dentist is not a strong leader, who is committed to building a great team and setting a clear path to achieving the vision of the practice, profits are escaping every day.
