Q&A Segment 

  • 00:32:27 – Question 01 – I have noticed that we typically go backward every day in terms of production. I look at the amount we have scheduled during the morning huddle, and I revisit where we end up at the end of the day, and usually, we produce less than when we started because of cancellations and no-shows. How can I turn this around?
  • 00:38:15 – Question 02 – Gary, The insight you provided about my insurance adjustments being a marketing expense has been a huge breakthrough for me. I now realize I am ‘paying’ 45% of my revenue on marketing as a PPO practice. My goal is to spend less than 2% on Marketing within 12 to 18 months. What actions can I take this month to change my marketing spend as a percentage of revenue?
  • 00:41:27 – Question 03 – In an effort to support growth in my practice, do you think it would make sense to hire an extra dental assistant?
  • 00:45:14 – Question 04 – How is the best way to talk about growth with my team members and not have it seem like it is all about money?
