With all the time, money, and energy you have spent (and continue to spend) learning dentistry, how much have you learned about running a dental practice? Unfortunately for most dentist practice owners, they have learned most of what they know “on the job” through trial and error.
Maybe you have wondered if you should hire a dental practice consultant. Or maybe you have never thought about it. But the truth is, a dental practice consultant can reduce your stress and improve your income tremendously.
At Dental Practice Enhancement, we have helped dentists across the country dramatically improve financial and operational performances to increase their bottom line while making their life and work easier. Our founder, Tina Brown, has over three decades of experience in dental practice management.
In this article, we are going to discuss 3 reasons you need a dental practice consultant.
Reason #1 to Hire a Dental Practice Consultant: Experienced Eyes
As humans, we become acclimated to things. A strong odor that hits us when we walk into a business fades away as our sense of smell gets used to it. An important note left on the refrigerator, “so you won’t forget about it,” disappears from our sight as time passes. And anyone who has lived near an airport or train track can tell you that the longer they live there, the less they notice the sounds.
The same is true in your dental practice. Unorganized accounts receivable, chaotic systems for insurance claims, and ineffective patient recall practices become the norm. Let’s face it—everyone can use some help from time to time, and when it comes to something as important as your future, your family, your dentistry, your finances, and your legacy, you want to make sure you get the help from someone who knows what they are doing.
After all, if you don’t take steps to improve things, nothing will change. You will keep getting the same results. If you want improved results, you need to make some changes.
At Dental Practice Enhancement, each of our assistants and coaches know how things should run in a dental practice. We quickly recognize the inefficiencies and hinderances in operations and finances. We are highly experienced at examining how the practice runs and accurately diagnosing the problems and issues.
We can see the pain points that you may be overlooking.
Reason #2 to Hire a Dental Practice Consultant: An Accurate Roadmap to Success
Once the consultants at Dental Practice Management have a good understanding and working diagnoses of the problems in your practice, we will create a customized roadmap that leads to your success. This roadmap will include achievable and actionable goals.
Some of the things we will help you improve include:
- Defining employee roles
- Enhancing the patient experience
- Improving the scheduling and recall process
- Streamlining your record-keeping system
- Create systems for hiring and training team members
- Suggesting possible measures to protect you from embezzlement
- Ensuring you are in compliance with national and local regulations
- Improving relationships and communication among team members
Reason #3 to Hire a Dental Practice Consultant: Your Success
At Dental Practice Enhancement, we don’t just come in and show you what you are doing wrong, hand you a roadmap, and leave it all up to you.
We guide you and assist you as we train your team with better ways to do things. We will continuously reevaluate, improve goals, and help you implement new processes. And then we evaluate again.
With the proper guidance, you can reach success levels you never thought possible. All while reducing your workload and stress. Moreover, your practice will be a happier place for everyone because the team members will act as a cohesive team.
