February 2023 Management and Leadership Tips and Ideas

Leadership and Team Building Ideas

Team Building – You’ll notice a little trend with the team building ideas for February as they just so happen to revolve around food & drink. 😉

National Pizza Day: 9th – Bring in a pizza lunch for the team today.

National Drink Wine Day: 18th  

National Margarita Day: 22nd

National Chili Day 23rd – Have an in-office chili cook-off lunch. Everyone brings in a crockpot of chili. Have prizes for the best tasting, most unique, etc.

Random Acts of Kindness Week: 12-18th – Do something special for your employees this week. Bring in an unexpected sweet treat or small gift to let them know just how much you appreciate them. (By the way, if you’re an employee reading this, your doctor would also appreciate an unexpected act of kindness this week!)

February is International Boost Self-Esteem Month. Negative people are the greatest destroyers of self-confidence and self-esteem. Avoid office negativity, it’s toxic and will infect your team – Rather, focus on and share positive experiences. See more team-building ideas here: Dental Office Team Building

Practice Owners – 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.

Practice Management Reminders and Ideas

Reappointments and Reactivation – Now is a great time to reach out to your unscheduled patients both active and inactive patients. Do you know how many of your active patients are unscheduled? (If your practice management software is Dentrix, Eaglesoft, or Open Dental I can help you quickly get those numbers. Just send me an email to bhaydenconsulting@gmail.com and let me know that you’d like to get the FREE data analysis.)

Take advantage of all the different communication methods to reach your patients – telephone, text, email, letters/cards, and your social media pages.  You’re planting little reminder seeds that you’re thinking about them. Hopefully, it will be the gentle nudge they need to schedule an appointment.

Insurance – Have you carefully reviewed the 2023 CDT changes, additions, and deletions? This is important not just for filing insurance claims but because CDT codes are procedure codes, and every clinician is responsible for using them properly.

Speaking of Insurance, what does your insurance aging report look like? How often are you checking on outstanding insurance claims? Who is monitoring and working on your aging reports, daily?

February is National Time Management Month –  “ Either you run the day or the day runs you.

Start with the office schedules/patients’ appointments – Are they chaotic, unpredictable, and stressful? If they’re running you and your team crazy, it’s time to evaluate what’s not working and make changes. Design and run the schedules for success.  Remember, you are (or should be) in control of how, when, and where patients are scheduled. Keep them full, healthy, and productive.

February 2022 Dental Office Marketing Ideas

February is International Boost Self-Esteem Month – A beautiful & healthy smile can boost one’s self-esteem and confidence.

February is American Heart Month

Heart Health Talking Points: Dental Health and Heart Disease Are Related

Dental health and heart disease are intricately linked and the cost for avoiding advanced periodontal disease or even something as mild as gingivitis may very well prove to be the cause of serious medical problems in the future. Be good to your heart beginning with good oral health.

Tip: If you’re not currently taking your patients’ blood pressure at their appointments… make it a goal to start during the month of February. Many people see their dentist more regularly than a physician and could get an early warning about high blood pressure when getting their teeth cleaned or having other dental treatment done.

Pet Dental Health Month – Share pet dental health tips on your social media sites, ask people to share pictures of their pets on social media, hand out dog treats packaged with your office information. Even if the patient doesn’t have a dog surely, they know someone who does… a great way to get your office name out there!
