Ep. 23 – How To Build A Highly Efficient Practice with Dr. Gina Dorfman
When chaos strikes in your dental practice, what happens?
For most dentists, that means:
- flustered assistants and hygienist
- stress on you from having to tend to demand instead of working on growing your dental practice
- And worse, frustrated patients who may never return
Your team plays a huge role in your practice – second only to where your dental practice is located.
That means that by having a method to find, recruit, and keep high-quality people you earn an unfair advantage at growing your business.
If you’re struggling to find the right people (and you want to set your dental practice up for success), then meet Dr. Gina Dorfman.
Dr. Dorfman is a dental practice owner and a practicing dentist.
Dr. Dorfman is also one of the founders of YAPI, a practice automation software designed to help dental practices become more efficient and productive with streamlined routine business tasks and improved team and patient communications.
She’s here today to help you streamline your business.
