Your state has reopened, to a greater or lesser extent. You may or may not  – more likely not – have firm guidance from your state about necessary safety precautions. You might otherwise have to follow the none-too-clear, watered down, CDC recommendations that are subject to change at the drop of a hat. 

You might have restrictions on how many patients you can have in the office at one time. Your team may or may not have come back, or perhaps there’s not enough work to justify bringing everyone back.

None of that matters.

What’s important now is to have the processes in place to maximize the value of every patient that walks through your door. Why? Because the odds are overwhelming that 1) you’ve had very little to no revenue for a few months, and 2) you’ll face another partial or complete shutdown later this year when the second wave of the virus flares up.

Maybe that second wave will happen in the fall, or maybe it’ll be the winter. Most likely, the second Covid-19 wave will co-occur with the next H1N1 outbreak. 

Now is the time to make and stash every single dollar you can put your hands on. Thrive now, and prepare yourself and your practice to survive the next iteration of this pandemic.

Basically, you need to do everything in your power to put yourself in the position you wish you’d been in when this mess started. There’s no guarantee that there will be a third round of stimulus payments; as of this writing, one party seems to have lost its taste for spending huge amounts of money. Don’t count on anything or anyone to save your practice except yourself and your team.

Time For Business Unusual

There’s no denying that dentistry may never again be what it was. While early reports of a vaccine are favorable, there’s a long way to go in the clinical trials, not to mention ramping up production to be able to distribute and administer significant numbers of doses. And there’s no guarantee that the candidate vaccine that looks good right now will prove to be effective and safe.

If you’re not moving with urgency right now, you’re losing time, money, and ground in your market. It’s time to hit the accelerator. 

It’s no secret that SmartBox has a proven track record of helping dental practices succeed. In fact, we’ve produced and documented more than $4 billion in new patient opportunity for our doctors since 2009. If you’d like to explore what we can do for your practice – and sooner would be much better, everything considered – schedule your Practice Growth Call

The Practice Growth Call is actually a complimentary multistep consulting package we are gifting (we typically charge $5,500 for our Practice Growth Roadmaps) to qualified dentists who are serious about “leveling up” in every area of their practice.

Please understand, this is not a sales call, this is a consulting call. This is a call that is focused on showing you a clear path towards big results in your practice. We’re aiming at a level of result that is out of reach for most dentists in the country.

Why do we do this? Why do we task members of our team to focus on the growth of your practice before and regardless of whether or not we ever work together?

Because that’s how we show dentists just like you that the approach we take to success in dentistry works.

You can’t just get more and better patients ... and expect your future to be bright. If it was that easy, everyone would be doing it.

Success in dentistry at this level requires a team-driven approach where much of the heavy lifting behind the growth of your practice is actually done by your team … not you. 2020 is the year that dentists stop working in their practices and start working on their practices. 

However, we understand that not every doctor is ready to align with a practice growth partner. That’s why we’ve made an amazing range of free resources available on our website for your use.

But regardless of what you choose, don’t waste time. If you’re not accelerating right now, you won’t win this race
