Investment Grade Practice™ News – October 2022

When you go into the practice, are you satisfied?

For many dentists, moments of satisfaction can be fleeting. A great month may roll into a mediocre slump. The next month, you’re back on top. So, you buy that piece of technology, only to be proceeded with three months of lower production.

This unpredictable revenue cycle can put you on edge and make you feel overwhelmed with the business side of dentistry.

There is a better way.

Productive dentists leverage this time of year to be proactive so professional and financial satisfaction is achieved consistently month-over-month.

Have you:

  • Set your annual business planning date
  • Identified your top goals for 2023
  • Scheduled you and your team’s CE calendar

You likely know what your dream practice looks like, and may benefit from an experienced business advisor so your dreams can become reality.

This month you have access to resources that will help you reclaim your career satisfaction and put you in the driver’s seat of your business.

To Your Success,

Dr. Bruce B. Baird
