Do you sometimes feel frustrated with the present set of circumstances in your dental practice?
You come in every day and it’s the same old story of coping through the day, and getting the heck out of there at end of day to eat a late, cold dinner, watch a bit of TV and collapse for the night. Only to get up the next morning and hit the repeat button.
Lost the Future?
Have you forgotten the endlessly beautiful future that you once dreamed about? What happened to those plans? The future is exactly what you decide to make it and take the action steps that will achieve it. If you are not creating a future, the present can get really stale. Surely you became a dentist for a purpose … hopefully an altruistic one such as “giving patients the best possible smile.” Or, “Helping patients keep all their pearly white teeth till they don’t need them anymore.” Something along those lines. Even if your real goal was to have a good job and make money, this is still a purpose and you should make sure that you are actually accomplishing that fully.
Dental Practice Future?
What about your practice management goals? Did you want to hire the funnest, most productive team ever? Did you want to have the latest in equipment and do the necessary courses to be on the cutting edge? How about attracting the kind of patients you wanted and getting to do the kind of dentistry you love doing the most? Did you want to eventually buy your own premises and create the “perfect” practice inside and out? Or even renovate the one you already have in order to make your dream location?
