Of all the things we teach at Productive Dentist Academy, scheduling is one of the most complicated. It’s the one thing that costs dental practices more in long-term revenue than anything else. First off, what I teach is scheduling to productivity not time. If you’re taught anything in dental school about scheduling, it’s about “perfect day” scheduling. Numerous consultants across the country teach it, but it’s just about the worst system you can use. It is totally non-productive.
Today, we’ll take a look at what is productive in scheduling. This includes strategies such as looking at your hourly goal and booking procedures that allow you to meet your hourly goal. What we try to do is schedule for consistency not the highs and lows of the “roller coaster” most dentists find themselves on. Listen in for more strategies to add consistency, lower stress, and bring predictability to your practice.
