“But David, my dental practice is different!” I get this response often when it comes to orthodontist and dentist practice management. It doesn’t change my advice, though. The fact is, whether we like it or not, the medical field is changing. Either we change with it, or we risk being left in the dust.
I was in Austin recently with my friend, Bill Gough, at his insurance agency mastermind. Don’t think insurance agents and dentists have much in common? Think again. These business owners have common enemies, just like we do. From auto dealerships giving out insurance to big companies like Geico, there are numerous forms of competition hurting insurance agents these days. Even Google, Jeff Bezos, and Amazon are threats… These goliaths are turning their eye toward the insurance industry. Indeed, these are tough times to be selling insurance.
What’s the point, you ask? What does this have to do with dental practice management? My point is this: It’s not just your dental practice. It’s not just your situation. It’s not just you.
The writing’s on the wall. Enemies must be identified and understood. They are not to be feared. (UNLESS you stick your head in the sand and try to ignore the massive changes and “hope” that you won’t be affected…)
These particular insurance folks weren’t tucking tail and running. Ohhh no. They realized that to remain independent and build financial security, THEY ALSO MUST CHANGE…and that’s not easy to do! It’s especially difficult – maybe even impossible – if you try to do it alone.
These insurance agency owners were onto something: The Power Of A Mastermind – a community that digs deep into the strategies and tactics of creating a unique offering of tremendous value. That’s the way we serve each other in our Freedom Founders Mastermind. We’re a community of dentists, doctors, and practice professionals committed to creating real freedom.
That’s how to turn your practice into the engine that drives investments to build wealth and create passive income. Our Board of Trusted Advisors and hand-picked colleagues provide feedback, clarity, and focus.
The bottom line: Your dental practice isn’t different, but it can be. It’s up to you. Keep doing what you’ve always done and keep getting the same results… OR take a look at something new – very new. Our method may not be traditional, but we do have a definitive track record. We’re changing dentists’ lives every quarter.
A Mastermind could be your next step.
