What is Practice Development?
Orthodontic practice management creates the foundation for a thriving office. A well-run practice is well-organized and positive in nature. These facets inspire success and teamwork to create a happy and healthy environment.
Pain Points in Orthodontic Practice Management
Many employees look to the orthodontist to run the entire office, but they rarely have the necessary management skills to do so. Because of this, many practices suffer from a variety of issues that can impact operations, such as the following:
- Lack of communication
- No feedback on performance
- Outdated equipment
- Poor organization
- No goals
How Peniche & Associates Can Help
If you’ve been struggling with running your orthodontic practice, the practice management consultants at Peniche & Associates can help your business thrive.
Here are some tips for creating a better practice:
Build teams. Peniche & Associates focuses on team building, since success is rarely the work of just one person. Everyone contributes to a practice’s overall mission, so we try to build teams and increase motivation through games, planning meetings, staff retreats, and rewards. We also offer many educational events to help improve operations.
Reward good work. Many employees fail to reach their potential because they aren’t motivated to do so. Practices need to show that they value their employees, and they can do so through recognition programs.
Communicate well. In some cases, employees feel like they don’t belong because they’re out of the loop on important communication. Staff meetings, emails, and even notes can ensure that employees know what is going on and are aware of changes such as office procedures, staffing changes, and anything else that affects their job.
