No Business of Dentistry in Dental School with Dr. David Lawrence

June 23, 2019

Well, today we’re going to dive into my favorite subject, school. No business of dentistry in dental school. We don’t teach the business of dentistry in dental school. And I think that’s ironic. There’s a lot of things that we do in school that that is not helpful to us.

I think it starts with focusing on the business. Once you get out, if you’re a good dentist, people are going to find you. But more time needs to be spent on the business side of the practice…, like more strategic planning, etc.  Quit trying to focus so much on taking care of patients, focus on the business and how to get more time for yourself.  If you can find a healthier lifestyle, I promise you your practice is going to run so much smoother.

Dr. Lawrence was raised in Enid, Oklahoma and graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry.  He’s been in practice since 2016 and enjoys traveling with his wife and two black labs to Colorado and Grand Lake.

Should Associates Have Actual Ownership in the Practice? With Eric Nuss

June 19, 2019

Should associates have actual ownership? Let’s start there. I think before you even go there, whether they should or shouldn’t, I think you’ve got to question, what’s the motive? Why do I want to give up equity in my business/practice? What am I getting in exchange for that? So by giving up equity in my business, I’m diluting my own position.  I think a lot of times, doctors who have associates are bringing equity to the table because they believe that their associate is going to leave them and compete with them, and that their desire is to own something.

Eric is currently the director of Business Development for North American Dental Group, a Group practice that has amassed just under 200 practices in its short 10 years of existence.  In this role, he is responsible for the acquisition growth for the company, as well as doctor retention and doctor/partner business development.  In his prior role at Henry Schein Dental, Eric created the business solutions department for the company inclusive of Business Education, Business Services, and Business Consulting.  He is frequently on stage speaking for study clubs, associations and large conventions and has authored several periodical articles about the business of dentistry featured in DE, Sidekick, Trainer Magazine, and Forbes.

June 16, 2019

Today I want to talk to you about the four building blocks of any successful practice. There are four building blocks upon which all privately owned businesses are founded.

And we’ll give you an understanding of why these are so important to grow your practice and grow practice that makes money while you are not there.

Do You Have Staff or Team? With Sameer Bhasin

June 12, 2019

I hope we don’t have staff because staff is an infection.  One of the  things we’ve experienced in this is that staff sometimes is a result. Sometimes it comes from the way that we as leaders treat them and how we view them. Do we view them as smart and motivated, or do we view them as stupid and lazy or somewhere in between where they’re just not going to do anything unless I tell them to do it?

Sameer Bhasin, VP of Alliance at CareCredit, is dedicated to working with dentistry’s key opinion leaders and leading educators.  One of Sameer’s key initiatives is to gather the latest insights, ideas and practical tools presented at dental meetings and conventions, so he can help the doctors and their teams increase “recommended” patient care.

From Hostage to Freedom with Shelley Renee

June 9, 2019

Let’s start with the dark side, where you were before you felt like you got your freedom, both you and your husband and your practice, just kind of paint a quick picture of that.  So the dark side was where my husband had a dental practice and I was his office manager. But I had bigger and better plans for us. He started to have bigger and better plans for us instead of sitting status quo, grinding it out day after day. So that was the start of our awareness that this is not where we want it to be.

How to Build a Practice That Makes Money When You’re Not There with Dr. David Lawrence

June 5, 2019

I wanted to figure out how to build a practice where I can get off the treadmill and make more money in less time.  And this can actually be fun.  Isn’t making money while you’re not there counter logical?  Everyone knows that the dental industry is hard.  It’s hard on the body.  Obviously we need to make money, but at the same time, we need to focus on not only the goals of the practice, but ways that we can make money when we’re not in the office and build towards that.

How to Find Those Great, Rare Team Members

May 29, 2019

I’d like to talk about how you find those rare, great, rock star team members.  Let me start by saying they aren’t rare, I believe that somewhere around 80%, or perhaps even more of the people who are in dentistry would be rock stars and great team members, if we either allowed it or required it.
