Embrace Change

YDMLogo_Hi_ResBridging_The_Gap_Logo

Managed change is essential for any growing business to keep up with the demands of competition, patients and improved ways of doing “what we have always done”.
The word “managed” is key of course and here are some tips I share with clients when supporting them with managed change:

1) Lead by example and embrace the change
2) Communicate, involve and share openly with the team
3) Always share proof of improvement, not promises!

4) Manage expectations and recognise/respect the different ways people react to change
5) Plan the implementation within reasonable timescales
6) Consider the bigger picture and plan for the wider impact

7) Listen and respond to feedback from the team & patients
8) Monitor closely and respond quickly to variances
9) Celebrate and share the benefits

Financial Quick Win!

Think twice before picking up the telephone to order a handful of low value dental materials!

Communication support, call center and customer service help desk.So often when reviewing practice finances, I come across multiple small invoices from the same key suppliers for dental materials, with costs significantly inflated by postage, to the point where materials are costing 25% – 50% and even more than they should.
With better planning and once a month re-stocking, you can benefit from cost-effective, often free, postage and enjoy well-deserved discounts for buying reasonable volumes.
Urgent orders can and do happen, but make sure last minute ordering is not the norm in your practice otherwise you will be paying premium prices, incurring unnecessarily high postage charges and spending far too much time on the phone or internet to your suppliers.

Keep a Finger on the Financial Pulse of Your Practice

Many practice owners have no real idea of how well the business is doing until they receive annual figures from the accountant a few months after the year-end.

By this time you may be surprised to see that your turnover and, or, profits have fallen gradually over the year. dreamstime_xs_51946471

In addition to tracking turnover, it is important to watch some key figures closely to make sure they don’t increase out of line with turnover. Those to watch include associate payments, hygienist fees, lab bills, dental materials and wages.

Simple, cost-effective and easy to use on-line accountancy packages linked directly to your bank account for ease of update are readily available, including QuickBooks, Xero and FreeAgent.
