Addressing the Challenges Specific to General Dentists

The challenges you face today are diverse and different from years past: soaring costs for marketing and technology, shrinking insurance reimbursements, competition from corporate dentistry, erratic new patient flow, staff turnover and accountability issues, and dwindling profits make the practice of general dentistry seem more demanding and stressful than ever.  You need a guide, an APC guide, who has seen it all and is as optimistic today about the future of the profession as the day we started.   APC – experienced in the science and art of innovation.  Because when challenges meet innovation, opportunities happen.

OPPORTUNITY:
Scheduling

Optimal patient scheduling eludes many practices. Our mathematically based scheduling systems ensure production goals are achieved and calmness preserved, without the distractions and stress of daily monitors and dollar counts.

OPPORTUNITY:
Patient Health

Achieving patient health is the most important goal of your practice. We train you and your staff to use motivationally based communications in your patient treatment discussions to increase patient acceptance of your recommendations and relegate insurance to its proper place in the conversation.

OPPORTUNITY:
Staff Compensation and Incentives

Our systems are based on achievable and measurable outcomes tied to your goals and profit. These systems allow you to reward and empower top performers, and develop employees who are not reaching their potential. And do this while maintaining staff overhead percentages within healthy targets.

OPPORTUNITY:
Policy Manual-Your New Best Friend

No more filling in the blanks! Designed to cover any situation, a custom policy manual, written especially for your practice, serves as a welcome silent director, making staff management much easier, less time consuming and less stressful.

OPPORTUNITY:
STAFFING

Matching office tasks to individual staff talents is the key to maximizing efficiency, enhancing patient satisfaction, and empowering staff while reducing office drama and keeping overhead percentages in a healthy range.

Developing a personalized consultation plan

Our extensive experience, the culmination of years of observing, advising and collaborating with dentists in the U.S. and Canada, provides us with a broad and deep perspective for understanding your challenges, analyzing your needs, and identifying your opportunities.

We begin with a visit to your office to conduct an in-depth, no obligation Practice Analysis. We observe quietly, talk to you and your staff individually, and look at every aspect of your practice—systems, processes, relationships. We prepare a report of our findings and a personalized treatment plan for your success. We discuss the things you do well, pinpoint problem areas and reveal areas of potential. The Practice Analysis is free; you pay only our travel expenses.
