101 Ways to %#@! Up your Dental Career with Dr. Sten Ericson

February 24, 2019

Watch video on YouTube
When is the right time, and what is the right way to bring on a partner? Or to offer a pathway to ownership to an associate? This is a heck of a problem that I don’t believe is being answered properly today in most practices. In my book, “Why Employees are Always a Bad Idea” we hit on several of the ideas that we talk with Dr. Phelps about, and I am sure that you will find some new ways of thinking about this after listening to this podcast.

Implementing processes allows the leader of the organization (you) to be able to step away from certain areas of the business and focus on what you are best at. This also allows for real, and substantial growth to occur, which only happens when the team as a whole is capable to make decisions on their own. Putting processes in place to allow this to happen is simply the best way, if not the only way, to grow your practice in a way that allows you to make more money, in less time, and get off the treadmill!

Dr. Sten Ericson owns 2 practices with a team and patient base that has quadrupled in size over the last 4 years. He is a Kois graduate and a board member of the AACD’s Public Education Committee, along with maintaining memberships with a variety of dental academies. He and his wife reside in Santa Barbara with their 2 boys.

Core Values, What Level of Impact Can They Have? With Carrie Webber

February 10, 2019

Watch video on YouTube

Core Values, you might have it in mind that these are just for big companies with thousands of employees, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! When IBM, or some other company with thousands of employees that has been doing this for 100 years hires 3 people, they pretty much get shoe horned into the position. When you hire your 10th person, if they are not a good fit with your team, that is 10% of your work force! And we all know how contagious a negative attitude is. It’s time to get smart about designing a culture that pulls our practice in the direction of our ideal lifestyle!

Carrie Webber is Chief Communications Officer and co-owner of Jameson, a dental management, marketing and hygiene coaching firm that helps dentists and teams become more productive, more profitable and ultimately more fulfilled in their practicing lives.  Carrie is a contributing author to multiple publications on the topics of dental business, leadership and team development, as well as a presenter on these topics to dental professionals nationwide.
