Fall Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for October 2022

Fall Dental Office Management and Leadership Ideas for October 2022

Hello Friends,

October is the start of your final quarter for the year. What do you have planned to help make this your best fourth quarter ever?

Here are some office management reminders and leadership ideas for October 2022

October is Employee Ownership Month – Encourage and lead your employees to take on an ownership mentality. The benefits: Taking ownership of your work helps with motivation in your job role, as it empowers you to ask questions, develop ideas, provide solutions to problems, be proactive instead of reactive, and ask for constructive feedback.  Employees can be the driver behind the success of the practice. It is vital that you provide your team with the support and resources they need to develop and become more engaged.

Doctors, if you 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.

Employee Appreciation Gift – Taco Day 4th – Bring in tacos for lunch for the team to enjoy.

Boss’s Day: October 17th – Plan now to make this a special day for your boss(es).  (Usually, it is on the 16th but moved it to the 17th because it fell on a weekend day.)  Plan now to make this a special day for your boss(es).

Practice Management Reminders & Ideas: 

Insurance Use it or Lose it Reminders – Did you get your end-of-year insurance dental benefit, HSA, and FSA use it or lose it reminder letters/emails/texts/calls out? 

Stay on Time & Take Control of your Schedule – If you’re often running behind schedule, investigate the reason(s) why. If you know the why… change whatever it is causing you to stray from the schedule.  If it’s your schedule that is the problem, remember this, you have control of who, what, when, and how the appointments are scheduled. Arriving at the office with plenty of time before the first scheduled patient, reserve time/holds for new patients, perio patients, and emergencies, expect your patients to arrive on time, never wait on hygiene exams, calculate the actual amount of time it takes to do procedures, and control the schedules, these things will help you stay on time and enjoy smoother, productive, and less chaotic days.

Scheduling  – What steps have you taken to ensure your schedules will be able to accommodate those patients that wait until the last minute to use their dental benefits before the year ends?

Reducing last-minute cancelations – If you’re not already doing this now would be a good time to start collecting the patients co-pay at the time of scheduling. Be sure to also remind your patients that the appointment time is being reserved exclusively for them.

Use it or Lose it Reminders – Have you followed up with a call(s) to your patients that haven’t responded to your use it or lose it letters/emails? If you didn’t get your letters and emails sent out I encourage you to take action now. Would you like a sample Use it or Lose it letter?
