Joanne Miles
by Joanne Miles, MAADOM, RDA, IGP Business Advisor

But, hope is not entirely lost.

In Joanne Miles’s article, “How to Win the Talent War,” recently published on DentistryToday.com, you will discover five critical areas of focus that will help you build a strategy to develop and retain dental assistants at the top of their game.

Authentic Leadership

Authentic Leadership

As a dentist and business owner, you are the leader of your practice by default. You might want to focus 100 percent of your time on patient care, but the reality is, working on the business is just as important as working in the business. Dentists who embrace an authentic leadership style are best positioned to inspire high performance with a team that is loyal, dedicated, and trustworthy.

Join Productive Dentist Academy’s Co-founder & CEO Dr. Victoria Peterson, Chief Communications Officer Regan Robertson, and Dentist Advisors CFP Matt Mulcock for a deep dive into authentic leadership. With more than 50 years of combined leadership experience, they tackle the leadership questions that can keep you up at night. This webinar will help you:

  • Understand how to keep your composure when times are tough
  • Maintain your true North as you grow and scale a company
  • Retain top employees
  • Be authentic to yourself as you navigate the struggles of business and life
  • Respond to changes in the industry

Webinar: Uncommon Knowledge

Uncommon Knowledge: Outsmarting Recession Behaviors for a Thriving Dental Practice

Many incredible companies are created during recessions while others fail. Will you follow the herd toward possible doom, or will you make savvy decisions because you’re prepared for what’s coming?

An economic recession is imminent and likely has already begun. Is your business ready? How will you behave differently in your business? How would a DSO behave differently than most private practices?

Join this free webinar with PDA’s Dr. David Porritt and ProFi 20/20s Chris Sands to learn the business & financial behaviors that you must change in order to thrive through a recession, rather than just hoping to survive. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What recession history, signals, and behaviors to pay attention to
  • What metrics to monitor and change in both business & finances
  • Real, applicable advice that every practice owner can implement

  • Clearly define wealth on your terms
  • Understand the right use of power

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

While Productive Dentist Academy is the primary data controller, Google, in the context of providing Google Analytics service, acts as a data processor. We use Google Analytics 4, a widely recognized web analytics service provided by Google, Inc., to track user interactions and gather data for advertising purposes. As a third-party vendor, Google Analytics operates independently and maintains its own privacy policy, which can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.
