What the PRO’s are saying…or…How to build your practice:

From gurus like Mike Massotto(, to Bernie Stoltz( or Fred Johal( and others:

  • Your telephones: the portal to your business:Have the most experienced upbeat people on them,answer them LIVE (no menus!), and consider having it ring thru after hours to a staff member to potentially schedule any new patients calling!
  • Your staff: Can make you or break you; Hire slow/fire fast; TRAIN them & create a budget for that; Use bonuses,incentives; Visualize what your ideal team would look like!
  • Your office: Does it look like a medical office? Take a hint: the medical profession is hurting,don’t copy them! Give it a makeover ,you are after all a ‘retailer’ and your patients don’t read those funky signs anyway! Get rid of the ‘bad news’ from that TV in your reception area,start educating your patients with dental news!
  • Your New Patients: Do you the Dr call every new patient before their appointment just to introduce yourself(perhaps go over any concerns before they get in),wow, what a powerful tool!
  • Your front desk: Are they collecting the two most valuable pieces of information from each patient: their email & their cell#’s? Getting permission to text them for appointment reminders ,email them on their birthdays, emails them any news or specials,are you using Demandforce?

PLUS OTHER COUNTLESS PEARLS designed to set up your practice for the best year you’ll ever have: 2012. You can do it by studying & engaging these guru management & marketing experts and applying their tested concepts &programs.
