How To Know What Metrics Determine A Successful Dental Practice

How To Know What Metrics Determine A Successful Dental Practice

Do you know the numbers that matter in your dental practice?

Today’s show is a clip from a past interview where I was featured on Howard Speaks with Howard Farran – the founder of Dental Town.

I went over a few things that I don’t normally cover in interviews on this show, and I go in-depth on the metrics that drive a successful dental practice.

In today’s bonus, I’m sharing a quick exercise you can use to get a grasp on the account in your business so that you can see where your practice is headed.

Here are a few things you’ll discover in today’s episode:

  • Appointment by appointment: Are you making money or losing money?
  • What sets apart million and billionaires in terms of the roles they have on their employee teams
  • The business quote that Bill Gates lives by that’s applicable to dental practice owners
  • Which accounting software and practice management I personally recommend to my private clients
  • How I spot embezzlement in a non-traditional way (this is how sneaky employees get away with stealing thousands of dollars from your practice)
  • Metrics in your business. Do I personally believe in having transparency around the numbers that matter in your practice (and should employees know how much is in the bank?)
  • How to read your balance sheet (and why this is critical to building a successful practice)

Free Episode Bonus:

When you know what numbers you need to focus on to drive your dental practice, everything else becomes clear.
