Personal 1-1 Coaching for Dentists

When running a dental practice for the first time, it is easy to neglect some aspects of the business. Here are a few things that often get overlooked that we help improve with 1-1 coaching.

1-1 Coaching

  • Marketing and patient acquisition: New dental practices need to focus on attracting new patients. This can be done through a variety of marketing channels, such as online advertising, social media, and networking with other healthcare professionals. However, many new dentists are so focused on providing patient care that they neglect marketing.
  • Financial management: Dental practices can be expensive to run, so it is important to have a good financial management system in place.
  • Staffing and training: Hiring and training qualified dental staff is essential for any dental practice. However, new dentists may not have the resources or experience to do this effectively.
  • Compliance: Dental practices must comply with a variety of regulations, including HIPAA, OSHA, and state dental board requirements. New dentists may not be aware of all of the applicable regulations or how to comply with them. It's always cheaper and more effective to prevent a problem than to have to fix it after the fact.
  • Patient satisfaction: Providing excellent patient care and ensuring patient satisfaction are essential for any dental practice. However, new dentists may be so focused on the clinical aspects of dentistry that they neglect the patient experience.

A dental practice owner should help his/her team perform better.

Here are just a few things:

  • Provide clear expectations and goals. Your team members need to know what is expected of them and what the goals of the practice are. Once they know what they are working towards, they are more likely to be motivated and engaged.
  • Provide regular feedback. Both positive and negative feedback is important. Positive feedback helps to reinforce good behavior and negative feedback helps to identify areas where improvement is needed.
  • Invest in training and development. Help your team members to develop their skills and knowledge. This will make them more valuable to the practice and more likely to be successful in their roles.
  • Create a positive work environment. A positive work environment is essential for team performance. Make sure that your team members feel valued and respected. Encourage collaboration and teamwork.
  • Recognize and reward good performance. When your team members perform well, be sure to recognize and reward them. This could involve giving them a verbal compliment, a small gift, or a financial bonus.

I want to help you:

  • Talk through negative outcomes
  • Build a team of people whose strengths are your weaknesses
  • Stop emotionally holding on to what is not working
  • Focus on the things that are working

Made a change

The dental industry is undergoing a number of changes, both in terms of clinical care and business operations.

New technologies, such as digital imaging, CAD/CAM, and 3D printing, are transforming the way dental care is delivered. These technologies can improve the accuracy and efficiency of treatments, as well as make them more comfortable for patients. The cost of new dental technologies can be high, and it can be challenging for dentists to keep up with the latest advances. However, it is important to invest in technology in order to provide patients with the best possible care. The latest dental technologies can help you to provide better care to your patients and to improve the efficiency of your practice.

In a competitive market, it can be difficult to attract and retain patients. Dentists need to find ways to differentiate themselves from their competitors and provide patients with a positive experience. Help your patients to avoid dental problems in the first place by educating them about oral health and by providing preventive services. Dentists are placing a greater emphasis on prevention, such as education and counseling, in order to help patients avoid dental problems in the first place. This is leading to a shift away from traditional "drill and fill" dentistry

Hire the right people. This means finding team members who are qualified, experienced, and a good fit for your practice culture. It's important to take the time to get to know each candidate and assess their skills and personality. Once you have a team in place, it's important to invest in their training and development. This will help them to improve their skills and knowledge, and become more valuable assets to your practice. One of the best ways to attract and retain top talent is to create a positive work environment. This means providing your team members with opportunities for growth and advancement, and creating a culture of respect and support.

Since working with Jerry, my team looks at me differently now-bigger decisions and visions come from me, but now I’m not as involved in the day to day details that used to bog down my day.
