Is your packed schedule from September starting to wane a bit? Or are you just as busy as ever? Either way, you’re probably stressed. Doctors are juggling a lot these days including…  

  • Staffing shortages
  • Dwindling insurance reimbursements 
  • Patient finances getting squeezed
  • Quality patients few + far between
  • Trying to fill holes in the schedule 

Overwhelmed is an understatement, and you might feel paralyzed and helpless.

Take a deep breath. Take another. And another. 

We feel better now. Do you? 

Now that we’re both calm, we’d like to share the story of one of our SmartBox dentists who overcame the same issues you’re battling.  

Dr. Ben Watson was running a single location doing about $369k/mo in collections. You might think that's pretty damn good, so what’s the problem? He was missing out on life. He kept missing baseball games, dance recitals, dinner with friends across town, and on and on. 

This is when Dr. Watson put a plan in place to give himself the time he was looking for with loved ones and keep his practice going. Except that’s not exactly what happened. His practice didn’t just hold steady, it started to grow. And grow and grow.

Not too long after those changes, Dr. Watson is in charge of a practice collecting over $584k each and every month.

Go ahead and read that again. We’ll wait…

If this sounds too good to be true, you might not be ready to alter your way of thinking. And that’s ok. In the meantime, if you’re just a little curious as to how he did it, you can discover his methods in a new report we’re making available to the entire dental community: Positioned for Profit details the situation Dr. Watson found himself in, and how he turned the tables on long, stressful hard work. 

It’s worth a read if you’re tired of dealing with insurance, staffing challenges, and finding quality patients, and you’re starting to see holes in your schedule.
