A four-week program offered at no cost for CEOs and Business Owners in the Dental Practice Lead by Expert Consultants

Program Overview

DDS-CEO helps great DDS’ become great CEOs. Obtain effective strategies that will deliver more new patients, greater profitability and reduced risk to top-line revenue. Private practice dentists are finding it harder and harder to compete in the dental industry. The cost of acquiring new patients is going up and the ability to hold on to existing patients is becoming more difficult. However, there are tremendous opportunities for modern dental practices to not only to compete but beat their local DSO competitors. Demonstrated effective strategies can deliver more new patients, greater profitability and reduced risk to top-line revenue. This program will introduce some of these concepts while providing tactic-level action plans which are simple, practical, and effective. The program cohort will consist of three classes aimed at helping private practice dentists improve their competitive position in their local markets. The program will emphasize modern solutions for obtaining better marketing results; improving staff effectiveness; demystifying financial statements; and wining more patients. DDS-CEO helps great DDS’s become great CEO’s.
