Each month I share complimentary dental practice management, leadership, team building, and practice growth (marketing) tips and ideas. Before you go, be sure to subscribe to my emails so you won’t miss a single idea! Thank you!
Here are some practice management reminders, leadership, and team-building ideas that can easily be implemented during the month of June. (Don’t wait until the end of the second quarter of the year to evaluate if your and your team’s daily actions are in harmony with your practice vision and mission. )
Practice improvement and growth start with you and your team! Remember, there is no way that the quality of patient care and experiences will exceed the quality of the people who provide it.
“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” –Napolean Hill
Invest in your team – Thoroughly train your employees (new & old) on your practice goals, systems, expectations, software, telephone skills, dental procedures, protocols, etc. Include regular continuing education – you can do this with in-office training, webinars, lunch and learns, and seminars/classes outside of the office.
Doughnut Day or Donut Day: June 2nd – Bring in donuts for the team!
Recess at Work day is June 15th – Get outside for a few minutes with your team for some fresh air. If you can’t all get outside, open the windows, and turn up the radio. How about a sweet treat to enjoy during “recess”? (ex: ice cream, frozen drink, etc.)
Practice Management Reminders & Ideas
Unscheduled Patients – Now is a great time to reach out to your unscheduled patients both active and inactive patients. Why? Because for your patients to smile healthy they need to schedule the treatment you’ve diagnosed and to come in regularly for their hygiene continuing care appointments.
Some questions to consider:
Of your active patients (seen in the last 18 months) how many have a next appointment scheduled and how many do not?
What systems are in place to ensure the team is staying in touch with your unscheduled patients?
How many patients left the practice this year?
What can you do together as a team to retain more patients by consistently exceeding their expectations?
What can you do together as a team to help more patients say yes to your very best care? Remember, When your patients are healthy – the practice is healthy.
Knowing your practice numbers and doing something with what you know about those numbers is key to growing and improving your practice. Numbers tell a story. Numbers tell you if your practice is healthy or unhealthy.
Reviews & Recommendations – Ask your patients to please review your office on Google and recommend you on Facebook. Don’t simply rely on third-party companies to do this for you. It’s so simple (& free) to invite your patients to do this for you.
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.” ― Mother Teresa

Even if your schedule is full and you’re really busy you want to continue to plant your marketing (growth) seeds. Everything that you do, everything that the patient (and potential patient) sees, hears & feels is a form of marketing. Everything you do or don’t do, matters. Your marketing (growth) seeds help you to consistently deliver excellent experiences for your patients and get them talking about you.
