Choosing The Right Direction For Your Dental Practice In 2021

Choosing The Right Direction For Your Dental Practice In 2021

As we move towards the New Year, the Number One skill we need to be focussing on in our dental practice is helping our valued patients to go ahead with all of the necessary dentistry that we diagnose and treatment plan for them.

When our patients delay or postpone their treatment, for whatever reason, the one thing that is for certain is that their dental condition will only worsen because of that delay.

Time is the enemy.

Necessary dentistry cannot be viewed in the same way as tidying up the spare room or the garage… we cannot simply close the door and return at some undetermined time in the future expecting things to be exactly how we left them.

As time goes by, cavities get bigger, pockets become deeper, tartar continues to build up, and alveolar bone recedes…

It’s a fact of life.

In dentistry, patients who fail to go ahead and fail to complete their necessary diagnosed treatment do so for a number of reasons:

  • They don’t understand what they need to have done
  • They don’t understand what will happen if they fail to have their dental treatment done NOW.
  • They do not see the value in what they will need to pay for the treatment required and the benefits of having that treatment.
  • They want to have their treatment, but cannot see a way of paying for that treatment

The first three points here can be answered simply with the question:

“You don’t want to lose this tooth, do you?”

[Or permutations of the above.]

The consequences of tooth loss [be it one tooth, several teeth, or all remaining teeth] can be logically explained to the majority of the sensible population.

There does exist out there though, a small number of people whose brains reject logic based on firmly entrenched LIMITING BELIEFS….

These people will identify themselves by saying things such as:

“It’s only a tooth.”

“Nobody will see it”

“My mother/father/relative/friend had all their teeth pulled out and it never affected them…”

When we meet these people we must graciously move to the side to allow them to pass by and be on their way without them inflicting mental anguish upon us that may scar us permanently from the encounter.

It is also our moral duty to do whatever we can to protect our team members from these people…

We cannot be all things to all people.

There will always be plenty of people turning up to your dental practice who want you to save their teeth, and restore their smiles, and are willing to replace the behaviours and the habits of their past that resulted in their [present] dental state.

These are the patients you are looking to help.

Do not try to WISH good dentistry upon the whole population.

Some will want your help. Some won’t….

Western Australian Dentist Sentenced To Two Months Immediate Jail For Breaching COVID-19 Quarantine Requirements.

Western Australian Dentist Sentenced To Two Months Immediate Jail For Breaching COVID-19 Quarantine Requirements.

A Perth [W.A.] dentist has been sentenced to two months immediate jail for breaching COVID-19 quarantine requirements and treating 41 patients despite knowing the health risk posed by the virus.

Dentist Natalia Nairn flew back to Perth from Canberra on June 16 via Sydney. She left home on seven or eight occasions when she should have been in Self-Isolation to treat clients. The magistrate dismissed Dr. Nairn’s argument that she was “feeling fine”

During sentencing in the Joondalup Magistrates Court, Magistrate Matthew Walton told Dr. Nairn her offending constituted a “contemptible disregard” for the rules.

Magistrate Walton said Dr. Nairn could have been responsible for spreading the virus through the community, and that she posed a significant risk to the health and safety of West Australians.

Nairn flew back to Perth from Canberra on June 16 via Sydney and was supposed to quarantine at home for two weeks. But the court heard on seven or eight occasions, she left her home to work at a dental clinic and treated 41 patients. She even revisited the dental clinic again after police tried to contact her at her home about her then alleged breach.

Dr. Nairn was charged with eight offences of failing to comply with a direction under the Emergency Management Act, and pleaded guilty on October 21.

Magistrate Walton said Nairn’s view she did not pose a risk because she was “feeling fine” was “patently ridiculous” and “staggeringly naive or at the very least irrelevant”.

Magistrate Walton went on to say that Dr. Nairn knew the risks of her action and in fact wore PPE while treating patients.

“She took those measures to fundamentally protect herself,” he said.

Magistrate Walton described the crimes as deliberate and at the “upper range of seriousness”, and said she risked potentially freshly introducing COVID-19 into the state, through 41 patients who could have then spread it through their own networks and contacts.

Magistrate Walton took into consideration Dr. Nairn’s remorse, early guilty plea and the fact she may be deregistered as a dentist.

But he said the offence warranted a jail term.

Nairn was sentenced to two months in prison, as well as another five months suspended for a period of eight months.

Comments from within the profession:

“It’s hard to be sympathetic. Looks like she was allowed to self-quarantine having come from interstate. Breaking the “honour system” really is poor form.. It would be bad enough just wandering around the community, but getting up close and personal with patients. That really is bad form.”

“Media circus made it much worse. But it was fairly blatant disregard for the law. Possibly her profession would have made the outcome worse for her as well, as she should have known better. Would be unfair to be stopped earning a livelihood with what is clearly just bad judgement and bad timing.”

“Media piled on because the stupidity/selfishness is astounding for a health care professional. Extremely heavy-handed approach. A stiff fine and closure for a short period but a jail sentence?”

“Jail is way too harsh. A fine is understandable. Are they jailing everyone else who didn’t quarantine?”

“Jail time is just way too harsh. Let’s drop the “she put her patients at risk” nonsense. She breached WA law. I get that. Perhaps a fine. She does not deserve trial by media and jail. You can drive around in a car drunk and you don’t go to jail.”

“Jail time is quite harsh, but she has brought the profession into disrepute. We have an additional responsibility to act with the highest level of professionalism, particularly when it comes to breaches of public health policy. We know that any improper act that reaches the media will always mention our profession without fail. More so than any other professions. A heavy fine would have sufficed.”

“She didn’t have COVID. She never tested positive. She didn’t spread the disease or infect a single person. In a state where there’s very few cases. Goes to jail…. what has this world come to??”

“Harsh punishment given the result, perfect deterrent to dentists though?”

My take on this:

The dental profession is easy media cannon fodder. And Dr. Nairn is an unwitting victim of this media thirst.

But as I’ve always said:

“No matter how difficult things are out there in the economy and in society in general, nobody, and I mean nobody out there, gives a rats if a dentist is doing it tough.”

As they say in the classics:

“Do the crime. Do the time.”

In Dr. Nairn’s case the punishment does appear to be quite harsh. I’m in agreement with those who say a fine would have sufficed.

There Is No Excuse For Bad Customer Service

There Is No Excuse For Bad Customer Service

In Australia, the COVID-19 Pandemic has created some fascinating situations.

Only this month, the Australian State of Queensland has chosen to relax the closure of its borders to tourists and visitors and population travelling into and out of Queensland from other states.

These previous STRICT regulations had meant that up until just recently, visitors to Queensland had needed to hotel quarantine for fourteen days, at their own expense, before being allowed to freely move around in the community, in Queensland.

Similarly, under those previous regulations, residents of Queensland who left the state and then returned home, also were required to hotel quarantine for fourteen days.

These laws were in place for a significant amount of time, but were relaxed at the start of this month [November], coincidentally two days after a State Government election was held in Queensland and the incumbent government was returned.

Anyway, what this meant in my family was that my wife had not seen her elderly mother who lives in Queensland since New Years Day, some ten and a half months earlier.

And so, with the Queensland Government now permitting travel for Queenslanders into and out of CERTAIN PARTS of Australia [not Sydney or Melbourne], my wife arranged for her mother to fly down and visit us for a week.

Qantas Flights were booked by my wife, for her mother.

However, a handful of days prior to travel, Qantas cancelled the flights, and reallocated my mother-in-law to their Budget carrier Jetstar.

Mistake Number 1.

Dear Qantas:

“If my wife had wanted to ship her mother by your budget carrier, she would have organised a Jetstar booking in the first place.”

There is a reason why people choose not to fly Jetstar.

Actually, there are MANY REASONS why people avoid Jetstar…..

When my mother-in-law arrived at Coolangatta Airport, the Jetstar computer there did not have her booked on the flight she had been reassigned to.

What transpired was a phone call from my mother-in-law to her daughter, who then needed a second phone to simultaneously call Qantas “Customer Service” and be told that the Jetstar computer system at the airport needed to be refreshed or updated and the booking would then magically appear at the Coolangatta Jetstar check-in.

Why this action needed to be performed at the last minute is concerning…

Anyway, all good news, my mother-in-law was able to board her flight.

Mistake Number 2.

Once on board, my mother-in-law found herself seated next to two adult male travellers, who she had never met. Yet immediately around her [according to reports], were at least twelve vacant seats.

With all the talk about maintaining SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS as being important for limiting the spread of Coronavirus, my mother-in-law was concerned for her health. [Announcements about social distancing had been made both on board the flight before take-off as well as inside the Airport terminal].

Because of this awkward seat allocation, and before take-off, my mother-in-law asked a male flight attendant whether she could relocate herself to one of the nearby vacant seats, once the plane had taken off. The flight attendant told her this would be ok.

My mother-in-law explained that the men seated beside her were unknown to her, to which the male flight attendant had answered:

“Oh, I thought you must have known them as you were seated beside them.”

How did the Jetstar “system” seat an elderly female passenger beside two young adult male passengers when there were a number of significantly safer places in this cabin for her to be seated?

Mistake Number 3.

Once the plane was in the air, and it was safe to do so, when my mother-in-law did relocate, a female flight attendant arrived at her seat and ordered her back to her original seat, stating to my mother-in-law in a bullying and humiliating tone:

“You must return to your original seat. Or I will have to have someone come and remove you from this seat. And then I will have to fill in a ton of paperwork if you don’t ….”

It appeared that no amount of reasoning would persuade this female crew member to change her mind, despite the fact that there had been a mistake in seating allocation, and despite the fact that a safer seat was available.

When this encounter was shared on Social Media…

When my wife shared this encounter on social media, to a man, all but one of the people who commented suggested that my wife and her mother should report this female flight attendant.

They also [all but one] commented that when working in such a PUBLIC Customer Service role, there is NO EXCUSE for this type of rudeness towards a paying customer.

Only one person offered a counter-opinion, suggesting that the female crew member was “having a bad day” and was possibly stressed from the whole effect of pay cuts etc as a result of the pandemic.

Mistake Number 4.

“Having a bad day” is no reason or justification for rudeness of any level, towards customers.

Especially in a customer service role like an airline flight attendant.

Trying to explain or justify someone’s poor behaviour in this manner is stupid and ridiculous.

The Lesson For Today:

If you are employed in a customer service role, and you are paid to deliver service, then that is indeed what you need to be doing.

Whether it is on an aeroplane, at a dental practice or doctor’s surgery, on a telephone, or somewhere else totally different, if you choose to take the “service” out of  the CUSTOMER SERVICE  in your business, you’re actually helping to take the “customers” out of your business, and give them to your competitors’ businesses.

“Talk The Talk. Walk The Walk.”

“Talk The Talk. Walk The Walk.”

Have you ever heard the phrase:

“Talk the talk. Walk the walk.”

When you say that someone talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk, you are saying that that person’s actions are incongruous with what they are saying.

People need to support what they say with their actions, otherwise their talk is just fluff.

It’s meaningless.

It’s pure hypocrisy.

Years ago there was an infamous Mastercard advertisement on television spruiking the benefits of one bank’s Mastercard because that bank [“Which bank?”] offered a Mastercard with a fifty-five day interest free period for cardholders.

The actor in the advertisement was easily recognisable, because the advertisement was played on televisions for a very long period of time.

The actor was so recognisable that one day, he was spotted in line in ANOTHER BANK branch [not “Which bank?”], lining up like you and I would to make a teller transaction [as we all did back in the day…]

Oops. Wrong bank…

A case of do as I say, not do as I do.

A friend of mine who speaks was once phoned by a rather agitated speaker friend of his because the agitated speaker was upset that my friend had accidentally scheduled a public event on the same day that the agitated speaker had also scheduled himself to speak.

And the agitated speaker felt that my friend needed to move his engagement to another date, because the two of them speaking on the same date would have an adverse effect on ticket sales.

The fact that the two speakers were speaking in different capital cities of different states some nine hundred miles apart didn’t deter the agitated speaker from driving home his jaundiced message.

Although my friend didn’t agree with the argument presented by his agitated friend, my friend moved the date of his event to another day in an effort to hold the peace.

Fast forward to 2020 and the year of COVID-19 and it seems that the agitated speaker has forgotten his uncalled for and unnecessary anxiety from the past and has gone and scheduled an online event on a date that clashed exactly not only with an online event my friend had scheduled, but also other events that other speakers in that field were doing.

How coincidental?

Or just convenient memory loss?

In business, you need to be seen to be walking the walk that reflects the talk that you talk.

It’s been said that your doctor should be a picture of health, as opposed to a looking like a fatality waiting to happen.

“Do as I do, AND as I say…”.

What about you?

Is that the world that you work in?

Some who don’t walk the walk just live their lives from one lie to the next to the next.

And that’s fine for them.

Eventually karma catches up with them.

In the meantime, the world is too large, and life is too short, to be entertaining charlatans and crooks…

There is no need to employ them, do business with them, or have them as your customers.

Life is way too short.

The Better Your Service, The Busier Your Business Will Be.

The Better Your Service, The Busier Your Business Will Be.

I was at the optometrist last week getting some new lenses in five pairs of glasses.

Yes, five.

Well one of the new sets of lenses involved new frames.

It was a significant transaction.

The optometrist that I go to is very modern and very customer service oriented.

It’s almost as if you need to make an appointment just to buy your spectacles.

Well, actually, that’s what you do there…

The process of buying spectacles there is almost akin to the process of buying a new wardrobe [not the furniture, I mean the new season of clothes] by appointment.

Where a tailor or outfitter spends time with you and fits you out with everything you need from head to toe.

You understand the idea?

New suits. New slacks and trousers. New shirts. New ties. New shoes. New belts. New cuff links… the whole nine yards.

And that’s the feeling that I’m given at this optometrist.

So on this visit, while I’m being fitted and measured, there are other clients waiting for the same service process.

For them.

And they’re happy to wait.

And to be waited upon.

And to be fitted correctly.

And to be made to feel important.

And to be made to feel valued.

So what happens when the phone rings?

What happens when the phone rings when there are customers being served and customers waiting to be served?

Should one of the staff leave the customer they are with to attend to the ringing phone?

After all, a ringing phone usually is bringing new business.

But a ringing phone takes time to be answered correctly, so that the caller feels valued, and wants to come in for their appointment….

There certainly is a skill required to be able to satisfy the live customer in front of you as well as the customer calling in on the phone wanting world class service, at exactly the same time.

So what’s the answer?

The answer is simple.

We need a mathematics lesson.

The same principle that applies here at the optical dispenser also applies in dental practices.

What do you do when you have a live patient in front of you checking in or checking out, and then the phone rings?

Do you let the phone go unanswered?

And go through to your service, hoping that the caller is happy enough to leave a message and wait for a call back?

[What if they aren’t happy to leave a message, and call another dental office to get an appointment right then and there?]

Do you excuse yourself from the live patient in front of you and answer the ringing phone, hoping you can serve that caller very quickly and return back to your live patient as if there never was any interruption at all?

How does that make your live patient feel? Do they feel important and valued?

How about the patient you just had on the phone and rushed away from? Do they feel important and valued?

I know some dental practices where dental chairside assistants and dental steri-assistants are answering the ringing phone when the front office staff are stretched…

But the chairside staff and the steri-staff aren’t trained up to be proficient phone answerers…

They are proficient at clinical and steri- duties.

Having under-trained back office staff jumping in and answering ringing phones is kind of like calling a park footballer up into first grade when a regular seasoned first grader is injured and unavailable…. You know there will be no happy ending…

So back to the mathematics…

At the optometrist, my purchase of new lenses and frames was worth over $4000.00.

If you assume that maybe I spent double what the average customer spends, then let’s say that a customer [new or repeat] is spending $2000.00 each visit.

It doesn’t take long to figure out that at $25.00 per hour, one new customer would cover the salaries for the day of ten additional employees.

So with that much margin in employment costs vs the customer value, or spend, why wouldn’t it be a no brainer that with one or two or three extra trained staff, no existing live customers would ever feel unimportant, and no customer who phoned in would ever be made to feel hurried or rushed on a phone call?

Would they?

Yet so many dental practices, retail stores, and service industries try to cut costs on staff, and then attempt to perform the customer service dance without sufficient staff numbers to provide that necessary THRESHOLD LEVEL required for the provision of the world class service.

The mathematics is simple.

The more service that your business provides, the busier your business will be.

That’s the no brainer…

Your Practice May Be Busy, But Is It Productive And Profitable?

Your Practice May Be Busy, But Is It Productive And Profitable?

So many dental practices just do not get it.

They tell me they are too busy.

They tell me they are booked out six and eight weeks in advance.

And they tell me they have closed their books to new patients.

The simple truth is this:

THEY ARE WASTING HUGE OPPORTUNITIES.

Putting it simply, they may be busy, but they are falling short on being efficiently productive.

What I often find is that their appointment books are filled with non-productive appointments and scheduling that are clogging their treatment rooms in the same way that cholesterol and plaque clog vital blood vessels to the heart and to the brain.

And in the case of blood vessels, unless there is a major SHIFT IN THEIR THINKING, the artery will end up closing and then we end up with a stroke, paralysis, or death.

Undiagnosed cardiovascular disease can manifest itself suddenly with dire consequences.

And undiagnosed appointment schedule disease will manifest itself in A LACK OF FINANCIAL FREEDOM, a delayed retirement or worse still a retirement of boredom without benefits.

All because the dentist believed they were “too busy.”

When a dentist in Queensland contacted me seven years ago, I unblocked her appointment book from a production level of less than $60,000.00 per month so that twenty months later she was able to achieve production levels of $150,000.00 per month.

A change in thinking took her practice from a turnover of less than $700,000.00 per year to a turnover of in excess of $1.8M per year, in a time frame of less than two years.

All done by looking at her appointment schedule with an extra pair of eyes… AND IMPLEMENTING AN ACTION PLAN.

Another dentist in New Orleans USA who worked with me took her practice from USD$1.02M to USD$1.2M in a twelve-month period, where she sacked over 1800 patients who were unappreciative of her work and her practice. She went from seeing over sixty patients per day who didn’t value what she did for them to seeing around twenty patients per day who really appreciated her care and her service.

All done by looking at her appointment schedule with an extra pair of eyes… AND IMPLEMENTING AN ACTION PLAN.

It’s really sad…

What is really sad is when I hear a phone call to a dental practice that goes like this:

Caller:

“I need to make an appointment to have all of my teeth crowned. I’m a patient there. I’m just sick of my teeth and I want them all fixed.”

Receptionist:

“We don’t have any appointments available for you to see us for 3-4 weeks.”

Here’s what should have happened:

Caller:

“I need to make an appointment to have all of my teeth crowned. I’m a patient there. I’m just sick of my teeth and I want them all fixed.”

Receptionist:

“I have an appointment available this afternoon at 2pm or tomorrow morning at 10:30am. Which time suits you best?”

In the actual call above, there was no solution offered to the caller, and no care or concern was shown.

There was no urgency to create a relationship with the caller [or RECREATE the relationship], or to exceed the caller’s expectations.

The caller would have felt flat and underwhelmed by the way they were treated.

I’d have been very surprised if that patient ever bothered to call that practice again.

The receptionist should have said this [of course after finding out the caller’s name]:

“John, let’s do this. Let’s organise a time for you to come in so Dr Smith can see exactly what’s going on and let you know your best options. I have a time available this afternoon at 2pm or tomorrow morning at 10:30am. Which time suits you best?”

When a caller to your practice is made to feel welcomed, and understood, and appreciated, when they feel care and concern, and their phone call creates a sense of urgency in the practice, then and only then will the practice truly grow to its full potential.

The sad part is that most dental schools don’t teach appointment schedule management for success.

Most dental schools don’t teach Appointment Schedule Management 101.

As a result, most dental appointment books look like a messy old wardrobe or closet…. when there is truly so much potential being wasted.

The day you restructure your appointment schedule for production is the day that you unlock the financial freedom for your future and your family’s future that your dental practice can truly provide.
