Practice owners who hire consultants understand the value of staying relevant in changing times. This year, the dental industry has faced its share of hardships as the COVID-19 pandemic shut office doors across the country. Now that practices are reopening, it’s an excellent time to revisit your strategies to find out what’s working – and what isn’t.
One of the valuable services offered by Dental Practice Enhancement is on-site training for practices. On-site training offers a number of advantages over online options. In addition to being hands-on, the training provided by our team of professionals is tailored to the unique needs of your practice. Here, we’ll discuss the five top benefits of on-site dental consulting.
#1: Seamless Technology Integration
The field of dentistry is always evolving. New technologies are patented all the time, from practice software solutions to handheld digital scanners and cone beam x-ray machines.
Change can be difficult for a busy dental team. But when necessary, incorporating these technologies into your practice is crucial. The Dental Practice Enhancement team is here to help you make that transition as smooth as possible. We can analyze existing systems and determine how they can work together seamlessly, making your practice run much more efficiently.
#2: Refined Policies and Systems
It’s easy to let old routines and habits drive the day-to-day. But change is necessary sometimes, and many practice owners don’t realize they’re holding tight to outdated policies and systems. When we visit you on-site, we’ll analyze every process you have in place and find ways to improve your productivity. We’ll also train your staff one-on-one to ensure they’re comfortable and confident when implementing these new systems.
#3: Maximized Revenue
A top concern among dentists is their patients’ ability to pay for treatment. Failure to pay for services has a negative impact on the practice as a whole. And COVID’s recent impact on the industry – and the economy as a whole – only exacerbates the problem.
Our team can train you on the details of getting paid – by patients and insurance companies alike. We’ll revisit your fee schedules, review late-payment policies, and teach you how to collect the payments you deserve.
#4: Better Team Building
Our consultants at Dental Practice Enhancement can talk with your current team of employees and assess their specific roles and involvement in your practice. Sometimes we may recommend adjustments in responsibilities to ensure that every team member is playing to their strengths.
We’ll also look at ways that in-office communication can be improved. For example, it’s imperative that the front office staff and clinical staff remain on the same page with each and every treatment plan. We’ll help you find ways to maximize communication and overall productivity.
#5: Long-Term Goalsetting
Every practice is unique, with its own specific goals. Our consultants will talk with you about your short-term and long-term goals. For many practice owners, recovering after the COVID crisis is at the forefront, and understandably so. You want to do what you can quickly, to get back on your feet. However, it’s also important to see the big picture and understand how decisions you make today will impact you down the road. Our number one goal is to make you successful and profitable for the long haul.
