Reclaiming the Passion of Dentistry

read chapter 1

Sandy Roth’s Introductory book will help you learn to be clear and direct in your client and employee communication. It will help you understand the practical aspects of behavior and relationships in your dental practice; to better relate with your patients (who can become clients, when you lay the right groundwork) and employees (who can become true team members when you know how to help them grow).

Those dentists and teams who develop the sensitivity and behavioral skills to help their patients through that process will undoubtedly become more successful. Meaningful interaction and discussion, where expectations are clearly expressed and understood, and each party accepts accountability, is essential.

Sandy Roth’s second book takes aim at some of our profession's "old Saws." For example, learn how bonus systems are often detrimental to helping patients get healthier. Examine four leadership styles: Abdicrat, Democrat, Autocrat and Visocrat. See how production can be significantly influenced by staff members who ordinarily are not considered producers. Would you dare to think of conflict promotion rather than conflict management? In the section on practice modeling, you can compare your office to the models of traditional, progressive and client-centered practices. In the chapter on Decision Points, ask yourself five key questions that can free you from your reluctance to change. Take the "communications temperature" of any interaction as you come to understand the underlying motivations. This book will help you create a truly distinctive practice.
