3 Surefire Ways To Make 2019 Your BEST Year Ever

WOW! How time flies! It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of 2019 is over. Every day there are countless opportunities to enhance our patient care, create more efficiency, increase our production, and improve team morale. If you are one of those people, like me, who enjoys setting goals and celebrating when you reach them; then you will love these 3 surefire ways to make 2019 your BEST year ever!

1. Get the RIGHT People in the “RIGHT SEATS” on your bus!

There have been days when you have probably doubted yourself. As you know, it takes every person in their specific roles to create exceptional experiences for our patients on a daily basis. When your team truly works together, you can accomplish anything, including having “your ideal practice”. Working together as a team is critical to exceptional patient care and a healthy practice that has FUN together! I’ve used DISC Communication assessments for many years in hiring for my practice, as well as helping my clients select the best candidates for their practice.

2. Do everything possible to “Make it EASY for Patients to Say YES”

Look around- what “barriers” do you have inherently in your practice, people, or processes that prevent your patients from getting the care they want, need, and deserve? What do you need to START DOING or STOP DOING in 2019? Honestly ASK yourself these questions and discuss as a team. Maybe you need to update your Practice Guidelines or maybe you need to reconsider some of your Practice Policies? Brainstorm together- I’m sure you can create a list of several ideas that will help make 2019 your BEST year ever!

3. Focus on Positive Results

Set goals for yourself personally and professionally. Focus on taking steps towards those goals every day and every week. There can be so many distractions in the form of “good things”. When the distractions take your eye off the “prize”, then it’s time to refocus on your mission and goals. Go for it! In all dental practices, there will be times of stress and struggles, the strong teams will not only survive, but also actually thrive. By taking an honest inventory of your practice, you can make 2019 your BEST year ever. Remember to CELEBRATE your SUCCESS with your team and patients! Please send me your success stories so that I can celebrate with you!
