This quote by Charles Darwin seems very appropriate for the Dental Profession today. Dental practices today are polarizing into those that are thriving and those that are struggling.
The world is changing at a rapid pace and the dental offices that are changing and adapting to the new reality are thriving. Those that are not changing and are operating in a ‘business as usual’ format are struggling. It’s that simple….and that difficult at the same time.
As you wrap up 2012, I encourage you to take a close look at your practice data. If your data (production, collection, net income etc…) is improving when compared to 2011, then you are changing and adapting. If not, then you are struggling.
Practices are either growing or they are dying. Sounds brutal, I know. Staying the same is just a slower form of dying because expenses continue to rise each year. So, as you reflect on 2012, take a look at your data. The data never lie. If you don’t like what you see, then what will you do to change it?
Here’s to making 2013 your best year yet!! That’s exactly what I am planning to do. Keep Smiling!
