How to Increase Productivity to Transform Your Dental Practice


Staying productive in the dental office can be challenging more often than not.  But a successful dental office that is productive will thrive, running on efficiency and enhanced workflow management.  

It’s time to get rid of any productivity-killers. No more wondering how to increase productivity in your dental office with these 3 helpful tips.  

Define your definition of the word “busy”.

 Being busy means different things to different people.  For you is it a patient waiting room that is full to the brim?  Or a schedule that is jam packed keeping you and your team at the top of your game and staying on track with your goals?  In way too many dental practices, being “busy” means frantic and stressed to the max and in reality, being busy is not productive.  Instead, take the focus off of being “busy” and take a good hard look at what it truly means to be productive.  Develop a clear picture of your dental practice’s goals and demands and establish tangible goals to work towards daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.  Ask yourself if you are saying “yes” to too many things or constantly scrambling to finish your to-do list.  Take a step back and look at which things on your list really will make an actual impact to your end goals.   

Improve communication.

 A super-efficient and productive dental office requires clear and concise communication between team members.  Use revolutionary technology like OperaDDS to communicate simply and securely with your staff, patients and colleagues.  This will help you to save time and allow more time with patients.
