Practical Strategies to Grow Your Dental Practice


When you have a dental practice, it can be easy to overlook the fact that you are also a business owner. As a dentist, you have the choice to either stay stagnant or to elevate your practice by viewing your work through a more strategic mindset. By focusing your energy on the right activities, you will find your private practice to be more profitable and more professionally fulfilling.

In today’s episode, I share a replay of my time on the Thriving Dentist Show. I share some practice growth strategies that helped me grow my business, increase my professional satisfaction, empower my team, and renew my love of dentistry. I share insights on aspects of dentistry such as crowns, implants, and orthodontics and my thoughts on the role they should have in your business.  I also highlight how to be more productive with what you take on in your practice and how you can make more money in your practice without seeing new patients.
