3 Value Takeaways

  1. Review charts: You need to find out the hidden opportunities of your practice. Being observant is the best way to do so. Unfortunately, when it comes to chart reviewing, everyone tends to read the charts simply. And this leads to missed opportunities! Instead, the dentist and team members should observe the charts and write down the opportunities they see to make use of them.
  2. Offer something valuable: Your patients need reasons to accept the offered treatments. So first, you need to identify treatments that’ll benefit your patients. Then you can pick a few services and offer them. With this method, you will genuinely be surprised by the way your case acceptance rate accelerates.
  3. Morning huddle: The key of a morning huddle is to discuss the missed opportunities with the team and find out what you can do about them daily. The dentist and the team can brainstorm ideas and indeed apply the practice strategies every single day.
