Episode : #381: Systemization: Where to Start?

Podcast Description

This one’s for all the system folks out there! Heck, it’s for the non-system folks, too, because Kiera’s here to share how to start getting your practice organized!

First, know that the Dental A-Team has created a 12 Systems Comprehensive Success Cycle, aka the systems we think are MOST important to get established in your office! The 12 systems are as follows …

  1. Company goals

  2. KPIs

  3. Billing

  4. Operations manual

  5. Scheduling

  6. Patient flow

  7. Treatment planning

  8. Marketing

  9. Hygiene

  10. Meetings

  11. Office manager/HR

  12. Communication and morale

Gotta love 12-step programs, right? Well, here are five we recommend starting off with when building systems:

  1. Hand-offs (see our NDTR cheat sheet)

  2. Tracking (here’s a sample scorecard)

  3. End-of-day checklists (a DAT-approved example)

  4. Hiring

  5. Billing

Establishing systems will turn your practice into a fully functioning one, so get started today!
