And you won’t miss a thing!
What does success mean for you and your dental practice and career? Go ahead and grab a note pad and a pen and really think about this question. And write it out. What does success look like as we wrap up this year of 2022? And how will you measure your business success for 2023?
Seven Steps to Success
Here is a list of 7 key steps to a successful dental practice:
- Defined Systems & Processes
- A Unique and Brandable Practice
- Purposeful Office Culture
- Digital Marketing Plan
- Strong Patient Referrals
- Measurable Goals
- Team Training & Education
Now, take another look at your note pad. Are there any additional thoughts you might like to add to your notes? Which step(s) do you find your strengths? And where is there room for improvement?
Defined Systems & Processes
Systems and processes are elemental in every business. And they are also foundational in dentistry. And each system is connected. One weak spot affects every other system.
Dental practice management is the science of communicating our systems and processes to the team. And implementing our systems and processes well on a daily basis. Helping clarify any areas of confusion. And building on our documentation as the practice expands.
Dental Office Business Success is Intentional Work
Dental office business success requires a plan. And a commitment to the plan. Discipline and documentation. But it can also be fun. And we want our days to be fun. Success is something we can enjoy together as a team.
Clearly defined systems and processes help us to better identify success. We know when we get it right. And where we need help. Our documentation and proper delegation help to make it all happen.
Document Systems & Processes
Dental offices that document their processes and systems create a business plan they can build on. It’s the roadmap that guides the team through their daily challenges. And even provides training materials for new team members.
So, how do we best document our systems? I’ve found the best tool to do this is with Trainual. They’ve got the tough part all worked out for us. The technology and support they offer is beyond amazing!
