Presentation Information

Upside Down Leadership: Building a Team of “Owners” that Take Everyone to the Top
Stress, frustration and contention are chronic in dentistry today. Change these dynamics by creating a framework for participation and growth, establishing clear expectations and showing genuine appreciation. Enlist, engage, and empower team members to create a culture of high performance and loyalty.

100% YES!  The Total Team System for Maximizing Case Acceptance
Learn a total team, skills-based approach to case acceptance where every encounter is an opportunity to lead patients with warmth and rapport to ultimately convert their needs into wants. Learn a straight forward patient care and co-diagnosis formula which leads patients to “own” their treatment and understand the urgency – preventing much greater costs and discomfort later.

Associate and Partnership Transitions: Dentistry’s Unseen Graveyard
Learn a process oriented (vs. project oriented) transition model, focusing on creating partnerships instead of just a contract. This facilitative approach utilizes a transition quarterback managing the process while maintaining a long-term relationship with the providers.
