What happens when the greatest minds in the dental consulting industry get together? The answer is an amazing weekend of brainstorming and sharing about the current and future states of the dental industry.
I was lucky enough to spend a weekend recently at the annual Speaking Consulting Network gathering. This year’s event was held in Portland, Ore., and was attended by more than 100 of the nation’s finest dental consultants and speakers.
As the only member of the dental media attending this event, I wanted to take full advantage I had of the time with this group. During our weekend together, I asked each of these amazing consultants and thought leaders if they would share with me the one thing they would change about your dental practice … in 90 seconds or less. At the end of the conference, 24 of them had accepted the challenge.
With subjects ranging from social media to your morning huddle to the illegal things you’re doing on your Website (yes, we’re talking to some of you), here are practice management tips from 24 of today’s leading dental consultants, each in 90 seconds or less.
