Helping you get the best out of your business

Dental practice owners face a peculiar challenge. As clinicians they train for years to minimise risk or remove it completely, and yet as leaders they are forced to develop a more open, nuanced relationship with risk. No effective leader ever achieved success by avoiding risk, and in every successful business you will find a leader who is flexible and, when necessary, willing to act decisively despite not having all the information. Leaders can stand back and think about wider threats and opportunities. That can be tough when, as a technician, you are naturally drawn to the detail and are unfamiliar with commercial realities outside the surgery.
There’s no getting away from it, dentists as a group tend to be risk averse information gatherers, and many are simply happier in surgery. But that might be because they have never had the opportunity to develop their business nous. What is essential, if you’re serious about growing your business and building a meaningful and satisfying work-life balance, is beginning with a frank discussion about what you really want.

Our INSIGHT

“People don’t mind working long hours as long as they’re engaged in what they’re doing, but if you’re constantly unengaged in your work you quickly become miserable. The most obvious way this split works for dentists is clinical and business work. The right ratio for you depends on which one of the following categories you fall into:

1. Dentist who happens to be a business owner

2. Business owner who happens to be a dentist

Be honest with yourself, does dentistry or business come first? And which one bores you to tears? You can improve your life and your business by becoming more aware of this division.”
