  • “Without a clear strategic plan, dentists themselves will lack direction and purpose, therefore, their teams will lack direction and purpose.”
  • “Creating these time blocks mapped out long in advance on your calendar, so you know when you’re going to sit down and what you’re going to deliver within that session. That’s smart business. “
  • “Job one is making sure that it’s all mapped out, that there’s a cadence and a routine.”
  • “Review the day-to-day operations of your practice and ensure that they’re efficient, effective, and aligned with the overall strategy of the organization.”

Key Quotes:

  • “Their needs are high, but for good reason, and we should see that as an opportunity and a possibility… If you can pull it off with your anxious and phobic patients, you can pull it off with anyone.”
  • “So that we come from a place of compassion and we don’t just write these patients off as crazy because they’re certainly acting crazy, but we don’t know the backstory necessarily until they share it with us. And they’re not gonna share it with us unless we’re listening intently and they know that we’re there to help and that we truly care.”
  • “The frontline activity is care and compassion and just being a great servant leader to these patients. But there is a bottom line effect, a significant bottom line effect if you do this right. It creates loyalty, referrals, reviews, automatically if you can get good at this.”
  • “So where are the opportunities there in your practice? The feels. Most chairs and dentistry are quite comfortable now. For longer procedures, you might want to upgrade with pillows, blankets, and neck pillows. Those tend to put patients at ease.”
  • “Most of you are probably doing care calls. I like that as a standard protocol. Every person that gets numb gets a call at the very least. We also did notes that showed up in their mailbox, which was an added touch.”
