How to Make 2012 the Best Year Yet

1. State your vision. My vision is to increase our practice 25% this year. We will do this by growing the implant, Biocompatible dentistry and sleep apnea areas of our practice.
2. Identify your obstacles. One big obstacle will be my travel schedule. The other obstacle will be adequate team training, especially for the docs, hygienists and assistants to be able to identify appropriate patients that need our help.
3. Commit your resources. My resources include our entire team who are committed to helping me be accountable. We will also use our amazing friends, Dr. Peter Evans, Dr. Todd Shatkin and Dr. Brady Frank to help with training and educating our team.
4. Design your plan. First of all, we will track the number of patients that we see that need the care that we are now providing. We will track our acceptance to maintain an acceptable level of acceptance. If we fall below our anticipated level, we will discuss to make changes in our plan where deemed appropriate. Once a week, at a minimum, I will read or listen to one of my resources on these subjects to get encouragement and new ideas.
5. Maintain your success. At the end of the 1st quarter of 2012, I will assess my progress and share with my accountability partners. If I have reached my goal, we will plan a night out at a restaurant with the entire team to celebrate our accomplishment, and we will make any necessary adjustments for the next quarter.
