Dental Practice
Goals for 2023

by Paul Northway

With a new year coming up, it’s a great time to turn a new page for your dental practice. Sit back, look broadly at your organizational goals, and develop a plan of action for how you’d like to get after them in 2023. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about your plan for the new year:

  1. Invest in your staff
    Staff are the lifeblood of dental practices everywhere. Among everything else they do, they are critical to both ensuring that each patient is properly cared for and carrying out the day-to-day, hour-to-hour tasks that keep dental practices running. Knowing this, you are likely already doing a lot to invest in your staff. Doing more never hurts! Think about more ways to encourage and engage with your staff on a regular basis. Take the lead in building a healthy, warm company culture. Invest in their continued education by providing them with opportunities to attain more qualifications. Make it a point to be very transparent and clear with your staff next year. The possibilities are endless – try out what works best for you!
  2. Look into more automation
    You’ll likely already know that the future of dentistry is automation. Practices across the country and the world are already adopting automated industry technologies everywhere, including 3-D printers, surgical and procedural robots, and new management software. Make a point to get after adopting new technologies this next year and ensure that your practice remains competitive and can continue to provide the best possible level of care for your patients.
  3. Expand your service offering
    Consider the feasibility of expanding the service offering of your dental practice. Implement custom payment plans that enable your patients to work through any difficulties they might have while still being able to reliably pay their dues on time. Think about implementing other dental specializations such as orthodontics and oral surgery into your practice. Any services or processes that you can adopt that will gain you more patients or increase the satisfaction of your extant patients is a plus.
