Efficiency and Effective Treatment go hand in hand

At this point in my career, little gives me more satisfaction than mentoring and advising my contemporaries in the dental profession.

Conferences like the upcoming Excellence In Dentistry conference taking place April 27-29 in Destin, Florida are a great opportunity for me to talk to and engage with dental professionals from across the country.

In Florida one of my talks will focus on ways dental practices can better focus their resources wit the aim of providing greater patient satisfaction.

The talk, titled Efficient and Effective Treatment Planning for Your Dental Patients will look at the following:

  1. Why not do in one visit what normally would take 3-4 visits?

Most patients don’t mind taking time off of work to visit the dentist. But repeat visits for an issue that can be resolved in one is a waste to time for everyone.

  1. What systems can you put in place to become more efficient?

Advances in both technology and planning methods go a long way to making  your practice more efficient and profitable. I’ll talk about how simple changes can dramatically increase your efficiency.

  1. It's not how long you work but what you do while you're working.

This also speaks to efficiency. Are you and your team maximising your time while working? There are many ways to work smarter with benefits both professional and personal.

The mistake some dentists make is setting their methods stone at the outset of their business and never review them again. I can promise this: you will make mistakes. The point is to make each one a learning experience then use it to improve your practice.

I look forward to discussing this in more detail with my colleagues at the Excellence In Dentistry conference. If you haven’t already registered I encourage you to do so by clicking here.

If you can’t make it and would like to talk about this topic and how it specifically applies to your practice, book me for a coaching session.
