Is your hygiene department falling apart?

 

We’ve heard from a lot of you that things are still feeling very chaotic in your practice and especially when it comes to re-building hygiene teams and systems. Maybe you don’t even want to think about growth until you can stabilize your practice.

What I’d like you to remember is that GROWTH doesn’t always equal more volume-of patients, hours, whatever. More might feel overwhelming right now. I get that.

Growth can also mean refined systems, more efficient hand-offs that are effective and don’t take as much time. Growth can include your mindset. I hope this video will give you some food for thought as you go into the second half of 2021 and what growth might mean for you.

What is your ultimate goal for tracking tasks?

 

Often dentists identify a behavior they’d like to see improve in their team and they want to track it. For example, increasing the number of intraoral photos.

But is it really worth tracking an activity if there’s no end result attached to it?

This week’s video gives you a couple of solid points to communicate to your team when asking them to track a particular task.

Change isn’t easy…

 

Change isn’t easy. Even when it’s eagerly anticipated change like a marriage, graduation or birth of a child, there are some hard moments and it takes us out of our comfort zones.

It’s not unusual for teams to be a tad nervous when their leader shares they’re considering working with a practice coach. So I decided to create a short video to help leaders communicate positively with their team and help calm the nerves that sometimes accompany this positive change.

Whatever kind of CE, coaching, consulting you’re considering bringing into your practice, this video will give you a couple of ‘pearls’ to ensure the project starts on a positive note.

Want a roadmap to hygiene growth?

 

For 16 years, we’ve been showing practice owners where the opportunity is to grow their hygiene department…ethically, rapidly and with support of your team. Sometimes they do it on their own. Sometimes they work with us to accomplish it.

In March, we are offering our Hygiene Growth Roadmap process at a special rate.

This process repeatedly identifies $100k-500k in growth opportunity that doesn’t involve selling a bunch of crazy products or pushing patients into treatment they don’t need.

The investment to identify a minimum of $100k growth is $1800 (usually $2100) for the month of March.

If we don’t identify at least $100k in growth potential, it won’t cost you a dime.

Why not reach out and talk with us about it? Email Clients@inspiredhygiene.com or call 704-5410-0995. We’re here for you.

Current Hygiene Schedule Issues

 

We’ve heard from a lot of teams across the country that while they were very busy after re-opening, the hygiene schedules are starting to look like Swiss cheese again. In this video, I share a few things to keep your eye on and get back to the systems that worked to keep patients on the schedule.

Hygiene Scheduling-think about these 2 things

 

If you’re like most of the teams we work with, your hygiene schedule is packed. And it’s most likely packed with delayed prophy and perio maintenance visits.

In this short video, I’d like to remind you of a couple of things to keep an eye on that will help you maintain strong hygiene production next week, next month and into next year.

Nobody Told Me That

 

I hope if you’re practice has opened for full-service dental care, you’ve had a great week. If you’re still waiting to open, we wish you all the best as you plan and prepare and communicate with your team.

I wanted to share this podcast with you for 2 reasons:

1-This is a fantastic podcast and I strongly encourage you to check it out. It’s designed to break down all there is to learn to be a strong dental practice administrator and/or owner.

2-In this episode, I take an administrator’s approach to review the AAP’s recent update to the perio classification system. I believe it’s very important for the business team to understand this as well as the clinical team.

How much time will you need?

 

First, I pray you and your family and team are well. This is such an unusual time. Please know our hearts are with you.

The truth is, none of us know exactly what it will be like when it’s time to reopen. Last week, we did a webinar to help you outline a few steps to develop a plan for the hygiene schedule when it’s time to start seeing patients again. Here’s the link to register for the replay.

Some questions I’m hearing now are…

How much time should we schedule for a hygiene visit with the new infection control processes?

If we are slammed with patients wanting to get in, should we shorten appointment times to get patients in?

In this week’s video, I’ll answer these and share a few more insights. I’d love to hear the topics or questions you’re curious about. Just respond to this email and let me know.


Failure to Launch

 

Have you ever thought about going into private coaching but have fears and reservations? Fear that you may not get the results that you are hoping for? Fear that you will not have a satisfactory ROI? Or fear that your team will be hesitant or offended by the suggestion that you need outside help? We routinely see all of these struggles that can ultimately lead to FAILURE TO LAUNCH for some of our clients.

In this short video, learn how a large growing team near Milwaukee, WI was able to overcome their fears to come together and embrace Inspired Hygiene’s private coaching and move together in a more cohesive approach to complete patient care.
