Our Business Elite mastermind Groups never fail to entertain. Every group seems to have a unique theme and hot-button topic. This past week’s was the SCHEDULE.
During a presentation on Time Vampires, I brought up one of the major sources, inefficient scheduling. Well, that opened up a flood of questions. Apparently even these highly successful practitioners have problems when it comes to inefficient scheduling, disruptions, lateness and a host of other horrors.
Surprise? Not at all.
Scheduling effectively might be the most difficult and cerebral task in the practice. It requires juggling around:
6. Treatment rooms
It also requires a comprehensive knowledge of the personal preferences of patients and providers, referral sources and even some dentistry. It requires an inquisitive, analytical mind and caring attitude; A special combination of attitudes, aptitudes and skillsets.
Yet, like answering the phones, this critical task is often left to the least experienced, least paid and often least educated (or specifically trained) team member.
Inefficient scheduling in a $750,000 grossing practice, that results in a meager 5% loss of production (it’s more likely 25%), can result in a loss of $37,500 of PURE PROFIT!
Because inflation looks like it will stick around for a bit, effective scheduling is a great way, entirely within the practice’s control, to fight this financial vampire.
That’s why this month’s Coffee With The Coach webinar will be on Removing Your Scheduling Demons.
Don’t let scheduling miscues impact your bottom line. Plug up the holes, increase efficiency and eliminate wasted time. Fight inflation without raising fees or compromising elsewhere. Tighten up your schedule and beat the real demonic vampire…INFLATION.
To your excellent success,
P.S. This timely webinar is geared towards the practice team. All are invited to attend, Thursday, October 27th at 8:30 PM, ET. Sorry, recordings are only available to Coffee With The Coach members.
