Fall brings a giddiness of new beginnings. School is back in session, kids are sporting new clothes, a new football season is kicking off... It seems that everything is skipping into place. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include the dental world – where September if known as Sucktember. 

The slowdown could be blamed on school being back in session, but if you peel back the layers, a practice with slumping production at certain points of the year is a clue. This clue may reveal that your practice is not as strong as it appears on the surface.

If you’re already seeing signs of a slowdown on the horizon, now is a good time to make the adjustments required to change that.

Let’s not narrow our focus to this fall slump alone. Solidifying your practice for year-round success requires a different approach to doing dentistry. This approach includes kicking insurance to the curb, allowing you to keep more of what you earn. 

It’s no secret that insurance increasingly controls what doctors can and cannot do. Why are you letting folks who didn’t go to dental school make decisions for you and your patients? 

Have you had enough?

Ditching insurance is a simple process, but it’s not easy. In addition to showing you how to avoid the September Slowdown, SmartBox’s approach to doing dentistry will help you:

  • Break out of what we call the PPO Prison
  • Put the insurance beast in its place and remove its talons from controlling your future
  • Build a practice that is immune to the general market cycles of the average dentist (including crummy Septembers)

If you haven’t gotten your hands on our very popular report, Busting Out of the PPO Prison, or you read it a while ago but didn’t act on it, it’s not too late to make changes before Sucktember commences. 

Break out of the market cycles that limit the success of most dentists, and request the complimentary report that can explain how to do it.
