Hello, I’m Patti Sooy+. As Productive Dentist Academy’s Director of Coaching, it’s my pleasure to discover opportunities to improve your personal productivity, and the efficiency and cohesiveness of your team. I look forward to finding solutions to help you soar!
In a mere 5-10 minutes per day you can organize your day and enhance patient care at the same time. The Morning Huddle is the time and place to call your plays for the day. Be reminded about who is in the schedule and what specifically needs to happen to ensure five star care for each patient.
Is there other work that can be addressed today, other family members that need appointments? Can a hygiene patient stay and get work done today if they have unscheduled treatment? Are there restorative patients overdue for a hygiene visit? Are there birthdays to celebrate? Do your patients have a Care Credit account? If so- can we help them find a way to get any unscheduled work complete?
Remember our job is to help patients find a way to get healthier at every visit. That should always be our focus with patients. Our other goal is to reach our goal everyday. Everyone has a part in this. Make sure this is the focus of the meeting. When you stay focused on getting patients healthier and give them five star care the rest falls into place. Schedule to productivity and diagnose enough to fill the schedule-it’s really so simple when you keep your eye on the prize—your patients!
