Key Takeaways:

  • Statistics show that if new dentists work in a DSO for more than two years, the statistic probability is they’ll stay there for 7-10.
  • About 70-80% of new dentists who go into DSO’s right after school will leave within two years.
  • When everyone is pulling on the rope at the same time it creates better team alignment.
  • People are always the biggest stressor in businesses. You’re always one employee away from starting the whole process over.
  • Storybook leadership isn’t the most effective leadership. Real leaders come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.
  • Patients are looking for experience. If your team is disengaged your results won’t be as good. Create a raving team and your patients will follow suit.
  • The American public is dumbed down to think that if it’s legal, it’s always safe. People are waking up to the reality that you have to be discernable with your consumerism.
  • For marketing, craft a story that’s compelling enough to talk about. Make yourself worthy of being talked about and treat that as your marketing plan.
  • Focus on net patient growth. You have to differentiate yourself.
  • Business is innovation. You need to flip everything on its head and create a value proposition that’s unlike everyone else’s.
  • Realize that patients are grasping at value. They don’t understand the quality of your work, they judge you based on how you treat them and how your office looks.
  • All-Star Smiles provides dental care services to children in need throughout the U.S.
