CE, short for continued education, is vital for every profession. General contractors require additional education as do doctors, lawyers, and plumbers. If a new product or service is made available to the public, people committed to those industries must be trained. The same is true with dentistry.
Every time the ADA and the FDA approve a new machine, doctors need to be educated about the product and the service. Products that have upgraded will also need CE. Everything requires continued education, including the business side of dentistry.
Some dentists are not very good at the business side of dentistry using old systems that are outdated and antiquated. Dr. Bill Blatchford and his daughter Dr. Christina Blatchford started Blatchford Solutions to help dentists enjoy their craft while perfecting the business side of dentistry using CE.
Dental practices that are not learning new ways of marketing along with CE are losing patients.
Reminder phone calls are still important, but so are email and text messages. If you do not have dental management systems in place, patients can get too many reminder calls or none at all. Blatchford Solutions dental management programs are designed to streamline your business so you can get back to doing what you love.
One of the biggest issues practicing dentists face is leadership. For some doctors it is tough to take on the role. If there is no Captain, the team will fail and the ship will sink.
Being in charge and owning your dental practice is not difficult, but you must have the confidence to become a true Chief Operating Officer. As COO of your dental practice, the team needs to know who is in charge.
Blatchford Solutions teaches leadership CE while doing so with grace and compassion. Too many dentists take the leadership role the wrong way becoming bullies in the process. There is a fine line between leadership and bullying. Dr. Christina Blatchford, her dad Dr. Bill Blatchford and the entire team from Blatchford Solutions teach you skills that create a healthy balance in your role as COO.
It is no secret that patients love efficiency. An office that runs efficiently from the front to the back is vital if you want to retain dental flow. Problems with efficiency can run from communication issues to a lack of caring. If a team member isn’t pulling his or her weight or could care less, it can make the entire system problematic.
An efficient office starts with a morning huddle to get the day off on the right foot. When you become a Blatchford Doctor, you will learn dental management systems and programs that help your team bonus.
