Dear Colleague:

Upon graduating from dental school, my goals were high but there was something lacking. Dental school had taught me how to be a good clinician but there was no business training at all. I started my dental practice from scratch without any real knowledge of management principles, and as a result, I suffered in the beginning. After about 5 months, I attended an introductory practice management seminar offered by The Art Of Management. But I was still skeptical. They made it seem so easy, but would it work in MY practice?

I investigated many practice management systems, each with their own philosophy. The problem with these systems was that they all involved memorizing scripts and things to say. There was a limited hands on approach with most of the “training” being done over the phone. The Art Of Management however, has taught me the general skills which can be adapted to any given situation. The Art Of Management uses a one on one approach for their training which in my opinion produces superior results.

The skills they have taught me can be adapted to any practice with any type of diversity. My personal management skills have improved tremendously and I am on top of how my practice is performing. I have more time to work ON my practice instead of just IN it. Over the past 5 years, my practice has grown to a size that many dentists are still trying to achieve after decades in practice. And I have the management tools to keep it growing.

All of these things have greatly decreased my level of stress and the implementation of these systems has enabled me to concentrate on what I like best: dentistry.

If you are having any difficulty with your practice, be it production, collections, financial planning, staff management. I highly recommend you contact The Art Of Management. It will be the best investment of your professional career.
