Being prepared for disaster to ensure your dental practice’s success.
Like many of the topics I like to share with you this one came from a personal experience that is always on our minds here in Oklahoma. The place I have unapologetically decided to lay my family roots down is smack in the middle of tornado alley, and when you live in an area that has a nick name about our weather, it’s safe to say we have our fair share of storms. And while I know we aren’t the only area with crazy weather, we do know the value of being prepared.
To help our kids feel more prepared and empowered during natural disasters the Red Cross recently came in to our schools and presented the Pillow Case project. They gave each kid a pillow case printed right there fabric the bare minimum items to put in the case to make them prepared during a natural disaster. The items were things like, toothbrush, toothpaste, tennis shoes, flashlight, a comforting stuffed animal, etc.…
The kids keep it under their bed and are ready to go when the moment hits. This pillowcase gave them a task they needed to complete and give them comfort in having control in the situation. They replaced uncertainty with preparation.

What’s the B.A.M. you need to have to keep your practice running without skipping a beat in any situation? I’m not necessarily talking about a natural disaster but the daily disasters that come up in running a business. What happens if key team member who keeps the whole office running is unexpectedly out? What if your backup procedures on your office computers don’t work and you lose data? What if something happens to the doctor and they’re unexpectedly out?
Take a few minutes to watch the video where I give you all the steps you need to put your practice emergency kit together. It doesn’t take much to derail success so I explain how you can ensure each key department will continue running at high capacity, no matter what emergency comes, up by using the pillow case example.
In this video, you’ll learn about:
- How the pillow case project can help your practice
- How to put your practice’s emergency preparedness kit together
- The bare minimum to need to run at high capacity
