Episode : The Perfect Quarterly Calibration

Podcast Description

Ladies and gents, he’s back. Dr. Dave Moghadam is again on the podcast, this time to talk with Kiera about quarterly team calibration. While there’s no silver bullet A-to-Z cookbook for how to operate a practice, an outline certainly helps. Dr. Moghadam shares his outline for setting up the ideal quarterly calibration meeting: 

  1. Start with the why (review practice’s mission, vision, and values)

  2. Align over treatment, planning, and diagnosis

  3. Review what makes your practice stand out

To keep things exciting each quarter, Kiera and Dr. Moghadam also chat about ways to shake up the meeting.

About Dr. Moghadam:

Dr. Moghadam was born and raised in Morris County, New Jersey. After completing his undergraduate degree at Rutgers University in New Brunswick he went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry (UMDNJ) in Newark. During his time at UMDNJ, Dr. Moghadam received extensive recognition for his outstanding leadership, academic and clinical aptitude, and dedication to the profession. Some of his achievements include receiving the William R. Cinotti Endowed Scholarship and the American Student Dental Association Award of Excellence, as well as induction into the Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic Honor Society.

He then chose to complete a general practice residency at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick where he received advanced training with an emphasis on comprehensive restorative treatment, endodontics, and implant dentistry. Dr. Moghadam is also an active member of the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Dental Associations, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He has had the honor of serving as a member of both the board of trustees and the board of delegates for the New Jersey Dental Association.
