Commonly Overlooked Issues In Your Dental Practice

Woman in front officeWe have worked with hundreds of dentists to help them improve their practices. In all of our experience, there are a few important issues that we’ve seen many dentists overlook, much to the detriment of their dental practices. Making sure to address these issues can help improve the success of your dental practice as well as the happiness of your employees and your patients.

Commonly Overlooked Dental Practice Issues

  • Time – Show your patients that you value their time by seeing each patient on time. The best way to do this is to time yourself as you perform procedures so that you can schedule appointments for the right amount of time. Scheduling a patient for 30 minutes when it really takes you 40 minutes to finish their procedure will throw off your schedule for the whole day. This will result in frustrated and unhappy patients.
  • Meetings – Hold regular staff meetings where you can allow your employees to voice questions and concerns, and provide input. This will make your staff feel like they’re contributing more to the practice, which will boost motivation and loyalty to the practice. Remember to revisit topics from previous meetings to track the changes that need to be made.
  • Tracking Numbers – Closely tracking your numbers is key to making sure your dental practice is successful. You need to know how much money comes into and leaves your office each month. You also need to stay on top of patient files and upcoming procedures.

Ignoring these important dental practice issues can keep your practice from reaching its full potential. For help with identifying and fixing any problems your practice may be experiencing, please contact CTC National today. Our skilled dental consultants can help you with everything from staff training and meetings to patient acquisition and retention.
