Dental Practice Frustration are you Suffering from It?

Dental practice frustration is real. Dental practice frustration occurs when dentists become frustrated with their practice. Dental practice frustration happens when dentists feel their team is not performing, frustration in the dental world is real when overhead is too high, the practice is number one and there is no number two, and they are pulled into patient and team messes. They try the band-aid approach, which is a temporary fix at best. The band-aid approach doesn’t work and will lead to dental practice frustration.

Why do we choose a dental model that is so frustrating? We think we can put a band-aid on one thing and it will make it better but indeed, another, “Fix-it,” item springs forth. Where is the nirvana of smooth productive days, patients who say, “Yes,” an accountable enthusiastic team, overhead at 55%, and systems which make it all work? Our dental coaches can help you and your team avoid the dreaded dental practice frustration rut and become productive and happy.

The dentist is the leader and team follows his or her vision. Has that vision been carefully laid out for your team? Do they understand the mission of your dental practice? Do they buy into your vision? Often band-aids are used in team situations. For example, your receptionist comes to you complaining about too much work, phone, paper, problems. She asks for help. You hire another to help at the front.

Perhaps the original receptionist is not working to capacity and is not capable of handling the front. Now you have hired someone who may be a help along the same vein. You have two salaries when one great person could handle the business at the front desk. These are band-aids because they are temporary fixes. Does anyone really buy into a bigger picture here?

Putting a band-aid on one problem when you have a myriad of concerns is no way to live your life. Dentistry can be the most rewarding profession, both financially and emotionally.

Band-aids are temporary fixes. We know there was not a course in dental school to learn business leadership.

• Overhead at 55%
• Block Booking so every day reaches or exceeds your goal
