The 6 Pillars of Dentistry 

In the past decade I have worked with thousands of practices, including my own, and while dentistry may seem isolating at times I can tell you that the vast majority of the problems that practice owners face fall into six basic categories:

  1. Foundation
  2. Operational Systemization
  3. Lifetime Patient Experience
  4. New Patient Acquisition
  5. Human Resources
  6. Overhead and Cash Flow Control

These pillars are the core of any office no matter the location, size of your office, or the types of insurance you do or don’t take.

Take a look at this short clip from the Dental Success Summit 2021 where I break down these pillars, demonstrate how we dentists are more connected than you may realize and how understanding these areas is critical for running a successful practice.
