Dentistry can be a very stressful profession. The dentist/practice owner is expected to manage and lead a team of employees and run all aspects of the associated business while simultaneously providing
exceptional dental care to patients who often have unrealistic expectations. Most dentists are thrown into business ownership without any formal business training. The misconception that the financial side of the practice will take care of itself could not be further from the truth. Without careful planning and the implementation of predictable business systems, any dental practice is destined to struggle regardless of how clinically skilled the dentist may be.
Dental practices often underperform because they lack effective operational, cash-flow and overhead control systems. Additionally, their internal and external marketing is inconsistent and their patient-retention systems are non-existent. The good news is that in most cases, income can exponentially increase and stress and work hours can significantly decrease with the addition of clearly defined protocols.
In this content-rich presentation filled with “implementable” strategies, Dr. Mark Costes shares the lessons that he has learned while building six successful dental practices and working with practices all over the globe.
