As the new year approaches, we all tend to look back and reassess the current year, and look forward to a new year when we can have even more fulfillment, prosperity and good health. Here are some resolutions you might want to adopt for yourself and for your practice for 2024.
- Truly pledge to take care of yourself in more ways than you have done in 2023. Eat well, move more, worry less.
- Look over the physical plant of your dental office from the front door, as if you were a patient. Vow to repaint, redecorate, replant. Realize that the appearance of your office sends a message about the quality of your dental care. Invest in your practice!
- Review all of the reports from your dental software. Notice whether the Accounts Receivable is less than one month’s net production. Look at the report of the credit balances – you must get that under control. Examine the report of Outstanding Insurance Claims over 30 days. This should only be very few pages. Hold your front desk personnel to a higher standard.
Wishing you Happy Holidays and a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Contact me if you would like my help to build the dental practice and the life that you want for 2024.
