No CEU • $75

Take the stress and pain out of understanding how to grow and manage your practice and your future. Join in on the discussion about “the numbers” that are so essential to your practice and, more importantly, your future! We’ll begin with the end in mind, when you want to retire and how much you’ll need to live today and tomorrow. Did you know that fewer than 5% of Dentists are economically prepared for retirement? During this presentation, understand the numbers and strategies to have full control of your practice today, leading to your tomorrows.

  • Your daily Key Performance Indicators (KPIs); new patient flow, patients scheduled in hygiene, production and collection goals, all leading to your economic survival
  • Retirement goals, making your dreams come true
  • Your daily, weekly monthly and yearly numbers, enabling your team to assist you on your journey
  • Cash flow, patient flow, or profits, it’s your responsibility define and achieve your goals, today
