Topic: Strategic Scheduling: The Key to Being Productive, Not Just Busy

Productivity is a measure of how effective a person or process is at achieving the required outcome. Just because staff are busy doesn’t mean they are also productive. In this online seminar, attendees will learn how to take a strategic approach to appointment scheduling so that productivity is maximized and each provider is contributing to the overall goals of the practice.


Attendees will:

  • Use the knowledge and skills required to properly engineer the appointment schedule (i.e., Doctor’s ideal day etc.)
  • Schedule patients (new, hygiene and emergency) efficiently to create profitable, stress-controlled days
  • Establish production goals for all providers and use these goals to properly engineer the appointment schedule
  • Consult with each provider to establish his/her “ideal day” and strive to schedule accordingly
  • Pre-block appointments for the upcoming month
  • Schedule longer appointments for patients which results in less anesthesia, less time away from work and less stress for the clinical team
  • Implement scheduling for financial goals and productivity

Topic: Mapping Out Your Practice Sale: What To Do & When To Do It

Proper planning and preparation are critical to maximizing the sale price while minimizing the headaches you experience throughout the sale and transition. Whether you think you will sell your practice within 5 years or 15, as the saying goes, the best time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining.

Build your plan today so that you may benefit from it tomorrow.


Attendees will:

  • Discover what within your practice must be addressed 3-5 years before you intend to sell to prevent leaving money on the table.
  • Achieve a smooth transition by learning what to devote attention to when you are about 18 months away.
  • Gain insight into those “last minute” items you need to consider but are too often overlooked.
  • Understand the significant monetary implications of not being properly prepared for a practice sale.
