Episode : #396: To Expand Your Practice or Not?

Podcast Description

It’s Brittany, folks! 

Dental A-Team consultant extraordinaire Brittany Stone is here again! For those of you wondering if it’s time to grow your practice, this episode is for you. Brittany and Kiera talk about whether the time is right to expand and what needs to be established to get things going.

The short version: Three things to have in place before you move forward …

  1. A location

  2. An operations manual

  3. A leadership team

The pair also discusses how to bring your team on board with such an important decision.

More on Brittany:

I have spent my life in and around the dental field. Raised by a dental assistant, my training started young and my journey in dentistry continues as I strive to help teams realize their dreams!

Working in dentistry for over 15 years, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of structures from small to large and private practice to dental support organizations. I have learned how the organization and management of an office impact the lives of each team member and patient. I have studied healthcare administration while working most positions in a dental office including hygiene lead, coach, and office manager. This helps me bring an understanding of driving value and patient care to help dental teams cultivate a fulfilling work environment.
