Consult-Workshop Topics:

I. “Presenting Your Award Winning Team Meeting.” Learn how to hold an effective staff meeting by participating, hands on, in one. We confidentially pre-survey your team to create an agenda in advance, then, hold a meeting within a meeting. Follow this protocol, and you are guaranteed to have effective staff meetings in the future.

II. “Ask for Patient Referrals, and You Will Receive.” This simple, inexpensive technique can be your most effective marketing strategy. Doctor and team learn techniques for when and how to ask for referrals inside and outside the practice. This is guaranteed to work for you!
III. “Make Your Conversations Count.” Warning, Warning! Your automatic pilot dialogue has been activated, and your patients are being held captive. Automatic Pilot Dialogue can be positive, or the worst thing that’s ever happened to your practice. Perception is reality — what impressions are your patients leaving with? Scrutinize routine verbiage to see if your message might be communicated more effectively.

IV. “The Fine Line between Service and Marketing.” It is no longer enough to provide excellent quality and service in your practices. We must dazzle, anticipating the wants and needs of our patients before even they do. Brainstorm innovative service and marketing ideas, and walk away with your own 10 top strategies to implement immediately.
V. “Ultimate Recare Visit” Your recare visit is a staple of your practice, and integral to its success. All team members need to fully realize the service value of the practice recare visit, and their roles as contributors, whether that be administrative or clinical. Design and implement an effective, ultimate recare experience that reflects the unique philosophy of your particular practice.

VI. “Doctor/RDH — Dynamic Duo.” What a doctor and RDH can achieve at re-care is amazing. Do you have a vision for what you would like to accomplish? Have you communicated it to each other? Would you like help promoting necessary and elective dentistry, and soft tissue management treatment? We’ll take a close look at the internal marketing tools available in your practice, and focus on refining your techniques. Finally, we?ll create an exam dynamic that results in patients scheduling and following through with treatment.

“Your seminar was great and very uplifting. I thought I was
the only one going crazy. Thank you for your inspiration.”

Kathleen Sinatra, RDH, New Jersey

“BanishTeamBurnout — A Win/Win for Doctor and Team.” 3 CEUs
Are members of your dental team operating on automatic pilot? What will it take to revitalize their attitude and maintain their zest for providing exemplary service?
