    Office Autopsy: Growing a Practice 5x its Worth

    Office Autopsy: Growing a Practice 5x its Worth

    It’s time for another office autopsy! Kiera shares the example of a practice she’s been working with for three years that has grown in value five times from what it started. In her time with the practice, they’ve successfully switched software, changed collection protocol, created an operations manual, receive 30 to 40 new patients, and many more successes. To get there, the practice has applied the following:
    Executing tasks effectively
    Set goals and kept them
    Showed patience in getting what they want
    Think about the goals you set this year and how effective you’ve been in trying to complete them.

    Dynamite Dental Assistants

    Dynamite Dental Assistants

    This is an episode dedicated to the dental assistants out there. Kiera and Tiff have both worked and loved working as dental assistants, sucking spit and all. They tease out what July 2023 will entail, methods provided by the Dental A-Team to perfect the cog in the wheel (aka those dental assistants) of practices — taking blood pressure and flipping rooms in under 5 minutes and keeping the patient happy chairside.
    Take the time to make your dental assistant team dynamite. This episode previews just how you can do that.

    Getting Real: Acquiring a Practice

    Getting Real: Acquiring a Practice

    Dr. Jenny Perna is once again on the podcast! With Kiera, she gets detailed into the realities of acquiring a new practice, and all the miles that come with it. They touch on the following:
    Working with banks during a sale, and how to supplement income
    Conversations with the seller during the transition
    Communicating with parents that the quality of service will stay the same (or improve!)
    Getting the team to become raving fans
    Making culture the best it can be (consider Culture Index or VIVAHR to help)

    #604: Signs Your Practice is Successful

    #604: Signs Your Practice is Successful

    Many dental practices are toeing the line of success and struggle these days. Because the Dental A-Team is visiting so many practices, the consultants are seeing a theme emerge of what sets these two groups apart. Kiera shares those common threads:
    The offices doing well have …
    Strong leaders and consistent execution
    A solid vision and knowledge of numbers
    Regular meetings to show alignment
    Those struggling tend to …
    Try and do everything, all the roles are switched
    Not have a strong leader who’s willing to fix culture
    Be more concerned about the dollar rather than investment
    Make sure you are assessing your business to know where you stand and what your practice’s longevity looks like.

    Do THIS to Maximize Your Case Acceptance

    Do THIS to Maximize Your Case Acceptance

    Kiera and Tiff are halfway through previewing the systems of 2023! Are you all caught up?
    Today, they have a question for you: Are you misconstruing what case acceptance means? They share what all the pieces of case acceptance are and why you need to do more than function as an autopilot when presenting treatments to your patients, including:
    Diagnosing enough to meet case acceptance goals
    Presenting a treatment plan is an art
    Looking at trends (your special sauce) of successful case acceptance

Just what I needed!

For years I worked at an office that used The Scheduling Institute for consulting. I thrive on the constant learning and constant growth. I love the growth mindset. As a leader I strive to constantly improve my skills. As of November 1st 2021 I am at a new office that does not use any consultation company and I have missed it, horribly! I started listening to The Dental A Team and it is filling the hole I didn’t even realize I had. I listen to it every morning to start my day. This podcast is a necessity for all dental practices! 🙏
