The Top Three Battles Between the Front and the Back

COURSE OVERVIEW:

When there is turmoil between the front office and the back office, your patients can feel it. They can sense the tug-of-warfrustration and see it on your face when you’re disappointed in one of your team members or even your doctor. Together, let’s set standards in your office so that patients walk away feeling like your office is a well-oiled machine and you go home at night feeling fantastic instead of frustrated.

In this interactive, fun course, team members will experience how it feels when things break down and together look at solutions that can strengthen the respect within so at the end of the day, everyone feels good.

Path to Paperless

CLICK HERE to download Dentistry’s Path to Paperless speaker packet.

Dayna takes the intimidation factor out of the transition to electronic health records with her Dentistry’s Path to Paperless presentation. The presentation takes a seemingly overwhelming topic and breaks it down into simple, understandable action steps, made relatable with real life stories drawn from Dayna’s consulting and training work with dental offices around the country.

The Dentistry’s Path to Paperless presentation can be customized to meet the needs of your program and timeframes – from a one-hour study club meeting to a six-hour full-day seminar event.

What your attendees will learn

  • Foundations of a paperless practice – Is it difficult to even think about where to start or what you need? Dayna will help you make a list of the questions to ask, evaluate how much training you will need and advice on avoiding the common pitfalls.
  • How to create the infrastructure and maintain a cohesive technology plan – Many dental practices have pieced their technology together over time. Dayna will show attendees how to maximize their current technology, manage the technology inventory and bring the “wow factor” for patients.
  • Learn how to develop efficient, consistent and secure systems so the entire team is happy – It is frightening how many dental practices don’t know who handles their backup or what they would do to recover after a disaster. Together let’s create peace of mind for the doctors.  A common misconception among dental team members is it takes too long to document using a computer. Dayna will show attendees how to streamline the process so the clinical team stays on time and provide valuable information to their admin team.

Show Me the Money

I am amazed how often the doctor doesn’t know what the accounts receivable is for his practice and when he asks the office manager she doesn’t even know what report to look at. Dayna will help attendees discover how to define new protocols in the practice that will increase cash flow, prepare patients for payment at the time of service and put the practice in the driver seat with insurance companies. This hands on interactive course will help attendees understand what it takes to be in control of the money in the practice.
