Creating a Vision for Your Dental Practice

Vision versus realityIf you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there?

As our country’s leaders have told us repeatedly, we are in uncharted territory.  Now, more than ever, it is essential to have a clear vision of who you are, where you’re going and how you want to get there. A focused vision, understood and shared by the entire team, will be your compass in these turbulent seas.

Times are tough. It’s difficult to find anyone in our country who hasn’t been touched by the current economic condition. Perhaps it is a family member, perhaps a neighbor, perhaps a patient, or perhaps you.  Have your retirement investments lost value?  Is your practice production down? Are patients holding off on making treatment decisions because of the uncertainty portrayed daily in every newspaper, magazine and evening news report?
