What Successful Practice Owners Need to Know

The most important question on a dental practice owners mind is: how do I make this business more successful than it is now?

How do I level up?

Is growing your practice productivity on the top of your To-Do List for this year?

If so, like many other dentists, the questions that are floating in your mind would be:

  • What should I do?
  • How should I do it?
  • When should I do it?

Interestingly, many would think of these to be the key questions to solve. And it is understandable.

You want success and you know that you need to be operating in a different way to get those results.

Doing things in the same way as you have done before will only get you the same results. We all know this.

However, this thinking is where most people are going slightly wrong.

Whatever challenge or opportunity you have, the solutions are never found in what, how, when or even why you do something alone.

The strategy should be built around the who is going to do it.

You see if you find the who, then they will be able to contribute to the thinking process and come up with the what, how and when.

This will create a more constructive and productive brainstorming of ideas.

You need to think carefully about building a MASTERMIND out of your team

This way you have a group of people who bring a variety of capabilities to the table.

They will be able to work out what they need to do and how they will do it.

This involves understanding, seeking and nurturing the capabilities within your team. It’s about getting the right people, with the right capabilities in the right roles.

“Get the right people on the bus first (and the wrong people off it); seat the right people in the right seats, and then decide where to drive the bus.”

grow your dental practiceMost dental teams are made up of a group of random people. No thought has been given to what capabilities you needed in your team, to begin with.

Team recruitment should be about what that person can contribute to the entirety of the team.

Before recruiting dental team members, the practice principal and the dental practice manager should be looking to see in which talents, skills and abilities the entire team is lacking.

If you simply put an advert out for a nurse and hire the first person that comes along, you are essentially creating a team of randomness.

Steps in Creating Your Ideal Team:

  1. First, decide the destination of your dental business. This is your Practice Vision.
  2. Then decide who is right for your Team Culture and who is not. You need to remove those negative people that are not aligned with your practice values.
  3. Thereafter, you need to look for abilities, talents and skills within that team. And position the correct people in the correct roles.
  4. Now look to see who else you need

The appropriate people on your team will develop the practice culture and will ultimately drive your Vision.

They will be able to contribute in a meaningful way to the overall success of the practice.
