ELITE DENTAL BUSINESS ACADEMY

A Seattle Study Club® group designed for new dentists who want to create profitable practices

Businessman stressed out at work in casual office

It's time to ask yourself some tough questions:

  • Is your business savvy as refined as your clinical expertise?
  • What should you be doing today to secure your family’s future?
  • Are you deep in the maze of uncertainty and confusion when it comes to practice growth and profitability in the face of all the changes happening in dentistry?

There’s no denying that it’s overwhelming: so many twists and turns. When you're just starting out as a new dentist in the competitive Chicago area, it’s easy to become paralyzed into inactivity, or conversely, to rush ahead without a clear purpose or concrete plan.

The Elite Dental Business Academy can help get you on your feet!

ACCELERATE YOUR LEADERSHIP BRILLIANCE
Accelerate Your Leadership Brilliance with guest speaker Mr Simon T. Bailey.

One of the most significant challenges every organization faces is finding quality employees—and then developing their talents so they become “assets with facets” focused on being breakthrough contributors to the organization’s success.


During this session, leaders will learn to inspire their teams to:
  • Contribute to the success of clients, partners, and their teammates by bringing out the best in themselves.
  • Create their future by becoming self-motivated, productive, and engaged in their work.
  • Operate in their brilliance and bring out the brilliance in others.
  • Create harmony in their teams and organizational partners, bringing about higher levels of performance.

 

A BLUEPRINT FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING

A Blueprint for Strategic Planning with guest speaker Dr Andy Boynton. 

Strategy helps focus the conversation, and it begins with looking at what’s happening around your practice in terms of competition, growth, technology, or changing customer needs. We’ll talk about why patients are coming to see you, whether they are young families or retired couples—and what your value proposition to them is.


 

This session will cover:

  • How to focus people, money, time, and technology resources on delivering excellence.
  • The importance of seeing your practice as it really is and not the way you want to it to be— thereby identifying any gaps in your delivery.
  • Determining what to start or stop doing to achieve that strategic plan.
INCREASED PROFITABILITY—THE KEY TO FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE

Increased Profitability-The Key to Financial Independence with guest speaker Mr. Ken Runkle. 

We all seek financial independence, and no dentist should work until retirement only to find that independence unattainable. The key is increased net profitability, which results from long-term, continual practice growth. Sustaining such growth can be difficult with fluctuations in the economy, local competition, and more. We’ll talk about implementing change that makes growth every year achievable.


 

During this interactive workshop, participants will:
  • Explore the numbers that really matter.
  • Discover the proper change in mindset to achieve greater profitability.
  • Develop tactics that support sustainable practice growth.
PROFIT MASTERY: UNDERSTANDING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—AND USING THEMAS POWERFUL MANAGEMENT TOOLS TO DRIVE PROFITABILITY AND CASH FLOW

Your financial statements tell the story of your business in numbers. Steve’s Profit MasteryTM tools allow you to go inside the numbers to measure and manage the performance of your practice.



This two-part interactive session will cover:
  • Seven steps to improved business performance.
  • Breakeven 360 Degrees—the absolute best tool to measure and manage practice profitability.
