The accent is on "hidden." That's because you may have settled into a pattern of life wherein you are busy with your daily routine and not finding a need for whatever talent may be hidden. However, discovering and developing a hidden talent may provide some additional joy in life.

One of the three basic building blocks of the ToP Team Strategy is “The Score Board.” ToP teams know when they are winning and how the score is kept. The score is more than just tracking production and collections. It includes all types of “player” and “team” stats that contribute to the overall success of the practice.

One number, of many, that we track is the…

If there ever was an example of dedication and determination all wrapped in one bundle, it would be Florence Nightingale. What’s more, if there was a person who had it made, as the saying goes, before she set out on a most challenging path, this again would be the same valiant lady.

James Madison - Years in the Making

A Piece of the Pie or of the Universe?

Do you remember when you were a kid and Mom took a hot pie out of the oven? You couldn’t wait. But if you were like me, the last of 6 children, you might have had some concern if you would get any pie at all. After all, it looked like there was only so much pie to go around.…

Partcipating and non participating dentist in same practice

Dear Crowns, Would like your thoughts on this one.

Twenty one years ago I purchased a practice and decided up front that I would not participate in any plans. One year later I took on a partner who decided to participate to "build up" his patient population. We function as two pseudo practices within a corporation. He yearly ponders the question of wheather to continue to participate or not but ends up keeping the same status due to the fear of losing too many patients espiecially now…

If you thought that there was a spelling error with the word “penny” you would be right if it was about money.  But this Penney has the letters J.C. ahead of it and refers to one of the leading merchants of the past century.

Here are 10  things this accomplished merchant said we should do or develop to become a…

Last year I took 3- 4 foot potted Christmas Trees to our referring…

A Word to the Wise

With that in mind, here is the result of some depth of research that would serve to substantiate that idea.

It has been found that… Continue

Tek Scan

Does anyone know where we can get some patient friendly information on Tek Scan??  We have been to their website, but it is just technical information.

We could write something up ourselves, but we were hoping to find a brochure or something like what the ADA puts out about other general dentistry services.
