Have you ever watched the synchronized swimming teams at the Olympics? Each swimmer effortlessly moves with their team as one. The water barely ripples as heads go under and pointed feet surface, twisting and fluttering in perfect unity. It’s a sight to see how each turn, each dip in the water is flawlessly coordinated. 

Can you imagine if the systems you use to run your practice were in perfect harmony like this? 

SmartBox sees a lot of practices using multiple systems to run their day-to-day business. They have marketing systems and hiring systems and in-office management systems and patient follow-up systems. All these systems are splashing around, doing their own thing. And while they might work well on their own, as a team they look horrendously dysfunctional and chaotic. An Olympic team they are not. As a matter of fact, they could be causing irreparable harm to your practice.  

All systems in the water. Let’s get fully engaged.

Multiple systems working in isolation to achieve different goals will not get you far. What you want to work toward is something we at SmartBox call practice intelligence. This is when all your systems work together and feed into a single body of data that can be used to make decisions about the present and the future success of your dental practice. 

The exciting part is when you can observe this data in near real time to affect positive change. You’ll be creating a consistent and harmonious stream of actionable data to assist you in boosting production, profit, and more. Those data systems that once looked like flopping fish out of water will turn into a lean, mean, synchronized machine that is a pleasure to behold. 

It’s time to get your feet wet and start moving toward using your data intelligently. If you’re not sure where to start, let’s jump into the deep end and explore some possibilities. SmartBox’s Practice Growth Call™ is an exploratory, no-strings-attached conversation that will help us determine if we can help you get to where you want to be. We’ll discuss things that aren’t working well or things that are working well but could be better. Let’s get you to better, together.
