Are your hygienists nervous about coaching?

 

Are your hygienists nervous about coaching? Maybe it’s keeping you from taking the next step to support your hygiene team reaching their true potential. This is not unusual! Many of our client teams come with a mix of hygienists who are excited about stepping into Inspired Hygiene coaching and those who are nervous.

The hygiene team at 30A Smiles is here to change minds! See how they felt in the video below:

Who Not How

 

I read a book recently that challenged the way I think about achieving the next level with my goals and my growth, both in my business and my personal life. Who Not How by Dr. Benjamin Hardy and Dan Sullivan, founder of Strategic Coach, pushes us to stop asking ‘how’ but instead to ask ‘who’ is already equipped to help you meet this goal. Maybe you even know the ‘how’ but you know deep down it’s not the best use of your time or resources. 

If you’re feeling exhausted by trying to figure out how to achieve your goals, I encourage you to take a look around you to see who can help you with this growth.

Reach out to us at clients@inspiredhygiene.com to discover if we might be the ‘who’ to help you take your hygiene department systems, services and profitability to the next level. 

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.

Another Way Hygiene Brings Value to Your Practice

 

I recently did a series of videos with my friends at Tusk Partners. Tusk is an advisory firm that helps single and multi-location group practices strategically grow and improve. They are a great resource for learning about the DSO market and how it’s impacting dentistry.

In this video, Kevin Cumbus and I talk about how the hygiene department impacts the value of a practice and a point of value that you may not have thought of before.

I’m always happy to chat with you and analyze your hygiene department to see where you might have room to grow.

It Takes a Team

 

Inspired Hygiene… not just for Dental Hygienists! It takes a team. Hear what Doctor and Mrs. Jones had to say after day two of visit one.

FAADOM business manager talks about Inspired Hygiene

 

One thing I love most about attending conferences is that I always bump into dental teams that we’ve worked with.

At AADOM this summer, I got to visit with dental practice Business Manager & FAADOM, Kim Yates and she shared the huge improvement her team achieved with the guidance of an expert Inspired Hygiene coach.

Take less than a minute to listen to what her team accomplished in just a few months time.

Is Your Equipment Working?

 

So often when we are on-site with clients, a team member shares their frustration that a critical piece of equipment isn’t working. It’s usually an intra-oral camera, by the way.

What’s interesting is that the dentist/owner/practice manager is often not aware of the issue. Think of the care that’s NOT being presented and accepted during those days and weeks that the camera is out of commission.

This is a great, short video to share with your team and remind you to double check that everything is in good working order.

But Do the Changes Really Stick?

 

Recently at the AADOM annual session, I had the chance to catch up with IH clients Dr. Gerner & Tracy of True North Dental in NY. Dr. Gerner made a point to come up to me in the crowded hall and here’s what he shared.

The systems Inspired Hygiene brought to our hygiene team have really stayed in place. Before working with our coach, Jamie, hygiene averaged around $90/hr and they are now consistently at $130/hr. We are very happy with the results. Thank you Inspired Hygiene!

This always warms my heart. If you’d like results like this in your practice, schedule a complimentary strategy session to see how we can help.
