Are You Mad or Are You Motivated?

When you feel your profession is threatened, do you get mad or does it motivate you to change the outcome?

Do you depend on your boss (or your team) to provide a place to work?  Or do you continually bring value beyond what is expected and ultimately become INVALUABLE in the mind of your mentors, employers, and, for that matter, employees if you’re a business owner? 

I’ve got 2 things for you today. First, watch this quick video and, next, read the article by Dr. Howard Farran in the link below the video. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Hygiene Compensation-Is it a Win-Win?

Just recently I spoke with a dentist who inherited an out of balance hygiene compensation plan that was only a ‘Win’ for one party. That’s not sustainable or conducive to maintaining a healthy business.

When the doc announced changes, let’s just say the team was ‘less than pleased’. That’s not surprising. But making these adjustments can actually be a positive turning point for improvement in your hygienist’s income AND your dental practice profitability. We’ve helped teams do this numerous times with a win-win solution.

Take 6 minutes to watch this week’s video and learn how to avoid a hygiene compensation nightmare AND how to approach your team with a positive solution if you need to make hygiene compensation changes.

What you need to know about SDF

According to the ADA, only 16% of dental offices use Silver Diamine Fluoride on a monthly basis.  Why is that, I ask myself!  Perhaps it’s that this product is misunderstood or perhaps our paradigms simply aren’t ready to make this shift.

Whatever the reason, SDF is here to stay and you will need to decide how you are going to implement this, or not, into your daily practice!

Watch this 3.5 minute video for a sneak peak as to why SDF is so effective and click on the links below to learn more.
