How To Fill Your Dental Schedule

We all know that keeping your schedule full is crucial to growing your practice, but how exactly do you keep it productive?


It’s no secret that in order to grow a successful practice, you have to have patients and a productive schedule.  In this case it would be best to make the most out of your time.

However, what does it take to get patients to come in and choose you for their dental care?  We already know you have to match the patients wants and desires but you also have to find ways to make it easy for them to say ‘yes.’

  • Fill Your Schedule With Uncompleted Treatment Plans


Back in the 1990’s practice management consultants estimated that the average dental office had $1 million to $3 million dollars worth of uncompleted treatment plans sitting in their filing cabinets.  This was 20 years ago, that amount would probably be closer to $10 million dollars in today’s economy.

  • Filling Your Dental Schedule Has Gotten Harder…And That’s Good News


I have some good news for you and some bad news. Let’s start with the bad news. Constantly when I’m talking to dentists across the country, we talk about what’s going on in their practice, and what’s not working. They always say, “What I used to do, doesn’t work anymore.”  “It’s getting very hard to get patients.” So many doctors are wondering why old methods just aren’t working anymore and what they need to do. They’re very focused on the HOW step, the WHAT, and the next thing, when they should be focusing on the WHO and the WHY first.

How can we make it work to our benefit when it comes to getting patients when it’s getting harder?  Read more…
