January 2023 Dental Practice Management and Leadership Ideas

Hello Friends,

Are you looking to make this a great year? If you want different or better results than last year you’ll need to do something different this year. Start now – make your action plan for any wanted and needed improvements to your office including setting your production, collection, treatment, continuing education, new patient, administrative time, and happiness goals for 2023.

Here you’ll find some office management, leadership, and team-building ideas for January.

Leadership and Team Building

“Outstanding leaders go out of the way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton

Training – Are you investing in your team by making sure they have proper training and retraining? For example, are you utilizing your practice management software to its full potential? Have you all been “properly” trained on how to use it?

January is Get Organized Month – This is a great time to get rid of any office clutter! Check the closets, cabinets, drawers, and desks for any clutter that can be organized, put away, or tossed. Clutter equals chaos. There is no room for chaos or clutter.

National Bagel Day: 15th – Bring in bagels for breakfast for the team to enjoy during your morning huddle.  

Fun at Work Day: Jan. 27th – Schedule a fun team-building activity, games, or contest for the team. Be sure to share the fun on your social media platforms.

Office Management Ideas

CDT Codes – Have you reviewed the 2023 CDT Code changes, additions, and deletions? If not, I strongly encourage you to make sure you’re up to date with coding and billing correctly.

Insurance Renewals: Many of your patients’ dental insurance maximums renewed on January 1. Phone, text, and/or email your patients with a friendly reminder of their renewed benefits and encourage them to make a reservation to come in for their hygiene wellness visit or to get started on their unscheduled treatment needs with the doctor. Include reminders on your social media pages.

Credit Report – Run your credit report. Check for any errors. Unless your patients have requested that you leave a credit on their account for future treatment – you shouldn’t have credits just sitting there.

What are your practice goals for 2023? I would love the opportunity to work along with you and your team to help you set and exceed your practice goals. If you would like to schedule a no-obligation, complimentary consultation to learn how our coaching program works, please email me at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

Dental Practice Growth and Marketing Ideas for December 2022

Dental Practice Growth and Marketing Ideas for December 2022

Hello Friends,

Wow, I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the year! It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was sharing practice growth tips and ideas for the start of this year. Where are you at with your practice growth goals for this year?

Doctors, if you are not happy with where your practice is at and would like to grow and improve your dental practice and have wondered what it might be like to work with me and what coaching is all about, or would like to learn what opportunities for improvement exist in your practice... please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation coaching call at bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com.

The ideas that I am sharing for the month of December when implemented, WILL help you attract more new patients, build relationships within the community, as well as exceed your current patients’ expectations. Get people talking about you! As always, my goal is to also help you all stress-less and have more fun at work!

To encourage patients to keep their scheduled appointments during December, consider having a drawing for a gift basket (ie: filled with cozy winter items & hot cocoa supplies) or a gift card to a local business/restaurant that your patients can enter to win when they come in for their dental appointment before December 23rd.

Patient Appreciation Gift Ideas – Cookie Day: 4th and Hot Cocoa Day: 12th – All month long you can give away individually wrapped cookies with a packet of hot cocoa mix and a tag/label attached that says “Warm Wishes for a Sweet Winter“.

National Hand Washing Awareness Week: 4th-10th

Purchase small bottles of hand sanitizer with your office information on the label.  Give away to your patients during this week or throughout the month.  “Hands down we have the best patients around.”

Travel Toothbrush Bags – Many of your patients travel during the holidays – Surprise them with a small gift for their travels. Put together toothbrush bags that include a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and a “what to do in a dental emergency” handout. You could also include other travel-sized items such as lotion, Advil, lip balm, etc.

Gift Certificates: Remember, Gift Certificates/Cards for Teeth Whitening or Dental Treatment should always be available for your patients to purchase as gifts for their loved ones.

Community Involvement: Donations – Open your office as a Drop-Off Location for donations of non-perishable food items or winter gear for families/individuals in need.
