Synopsis and Objectives

DAY 1: Some Days You’re the Pigeon, Some Days the Statue: Team Building, Office Culture, Climate and Relationships

Attendees can arrive prepared to laugh and learn as the speaker discusses what many doctors and staff feel is the most challenging part of their practice: the people. Doctors and patients, doctors and staff, staff and patients, front office and back office, even husbands and wives and parents and children – it all boils down to relationships. Words impact relationships, relationships impact culture and culture impacts results. There is a direct correlation between used words and the achieved results.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the secret to bringing out the best in coworkers and patients.
  2. Discover the six most powerful words in the English language and when to use them.
  3. Create an environment where great results thrive.

DAY 2: The Winner in You: Raising the Bar on Patient Care and Customer Service

This program is all about the incredible impact that attitude and professionalism can have on a practice and set it apart from all the others. This fast, fun and highly interactive seminar is loaded with activities to help everyone zero in on the critical issues needed to meet and exceed patient expectations – and get everyone in an office recharged to do the “right things.” Attendees can be ready to laugh as humorist Dave Weber delivers this one-of-a kind workshop to teams and referring practices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the top 14 characteristics of dental professionals.
  2. Discover how attitude and communication make or break a practice.
  3. Describe what “best-in-class” patient care looks and feels like.
