A Dentist’s Blueprint to Success: Gathering an Expert Project Team

You don’t have to do it all! In fact, unless you gather a team of experts and let them work their magic, you might not even achieve your new, modern dental office and the big revenue boost you want. In Steve Anderson’s guidebook, A Dentist’s Blueprint to Success: The Step-by-Step Process to Owning Your Own Dental Office and Making Your Dream a Reality! He just what qualities your dream team members need to share. Find people with these qualities, and together, you will create the best dental office possible. It might feel unnerving, letting someone else take control of certain aspects of your project, but the only path to outstanding results is to allow the experts to do what they do.

First of all, you’re looking for people who understand the dental business and what’s needed to make it run smoothly for both doctors and patients. If these experts have prior experience designing, constructing, supplying, or marketing a dental office, they’ve already saved you the time and money you’d spend trying to get them up to speed. They also should be willing to listen to your dream and do what it takes to make it happen. As Anderson says in A Dentist’s Blueprint to Success, “This is when it is important to be selfish: Make sure that the professional is all about your success and not theirs!”

And professional they must be. Each person should have the highest qualifications and knowledge in his or her own field. You want someone who knows more than you do, and that goes for any subcontractors they hire as well. Everyone on your team should respect the meaning of schedules and deadlines, be capable of delivering what was promised without making changes that surprise you, and also be capable of making approved adjustments when necessary. Check prospective team members’ references carefully, and ask questions of peers in their industry.

These experts’ willingness to learn from the knowledge of others and work collaboratively will also tell you a lot about how they’ll work with you and about the sort of dental office they will produce for you. They should be ready to accept other experts’ input, but they should also be ready to speak knowledgeably if they need to query or contradict what someone else says. As A Dentist’s Blueprint to Success cautions, any differences of opinion should be based on evidence, facts, and experience, not on personalities.

The final key element in gathering together a team of experts to build your ideal dental office is trust. If they can motivate their own people to produce their best work, if their work ethic is positive, and if their past record shows that they are reliable and won’t make you regret handing the reins to them—these are the people you want.  In the same way they would trust your expertise if they needed dental work, you should be able to trust your realtor, attorney, architect, builder, equipment supplier, and all the other team members to perform at the highest level in their own professions.

Only when you gather the best possible team can you be assured of creating a dental office that makes you and your patients happy and brings in the increased revenue you deserve.
