Key Challenges for Dental Practice Owners

A study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association in January 2020 found that financial management is a key challenge for dentists who own their own practices, and that inadequate financial management skills can lead to financial difficulties and stress.

As a dental practice manager and owner with over 25 years of experience, I have seen firsthand the financial challenges that dentists face when managing their practices. This study confirms what I have known for years - inadequate financial management skills can lead to financial difficulties and stress.

When my husband graduated as a dentist and opened his practice, I saw how his lack of financial management skills was impacting our family's financial security. That's when I stepped in and set up systems for operational success, leading to significant growth in our technologically rich practice.

Since then, I have managed a specialist practice that was similar to where our practice had been 15 years earlier. I helped turn it into a thriving business by setting up operational systems, onboarding processes, and effective marketing strategies.

As a business consultant for dental practices, I bring a unique perspective to the table. I have experienced the challenges of running a dental practice firsthand, and I have the expertise to help other dentists and specialists avoid the same pitfalls. My point of difference is that I take a personalised approach to every client, ensuring that the systems and strategies I recommend are tailored to their specific needs and goals.

If you're a dentist or dental specialist struggling with financial management, I urge you to make it a priority to seek help from a business consultant who has worked in the industry. As someone who has been there and done that, I can offer valuable insights and advice to help your practice grow and thrive.
