January 4, 2013

The New Year’s resolution might be a bit cliché, but the first of the year is a great time to look at your personal and professional life and set some goals for the coming year. Setting goals will help keep you focused and help make you an even better dentist in 2013.

The New Year’s resolution might be a bit cliché, but the first of the year is a great time to look at your personal and professional life and set some goals for the coming year. Setting goals will help keep you focused and help make you an even better dentist in 2013.

But just like with personal goals, you have to be realistic about what you can accomplish in a year. If all your goals become out of reach, it will just lead to frustration. Set small, attainable goals that will help get you to where you really want to be, whether that’s making your practice more high-tech or becoming more proficient in a specialty.

When you set and achieve goals to better yourself as a dentist and to better your practice, your patients will notice. They’ll see the positive changes and feel good about coming to a dentist who sees value in growth.  

Your patients are your practice. Without them, where would you be? You have to know the best ways to attract them to your practice, get them to accept treatment and make them happy, life-long patients.
