GPS Managing Finances Webinar: Making More Dollars and Sense through Strategic Practice Planning

Title slide from webinar GPS Managing Finances Webinar: Making More Dollars and Sense through Strategic Practice Planning

Dentists at all stages of their careers can benefit from creating an easy-to-follow strategic practice development and business plan that helps track how effective patient care and practice operations can impact the bottom line. 

While many dentists recognize the benefits of a plan, some worry that creating the plan + and following the plan = too much stress and frustration for the dentist and everyone on the team.

That doesn’t have to be the case. This on-demand webinar will walk you through the steps of designing a plan that considers the key business and legal issues that should be considered in that plan. 

This program is sponsored by the ADA Council on Dental Practice. It is the sixth in a series of webinars based on content from the ADA’s Guidelines for Practice Success™ (GPS™) modules and recaps some of the information available in the GPS module on Managing Finances

Following the program, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the pros and cons of solo vs. group practice forms of ownership
  2. Use effective business, financial and operating systems to minimize stress
  3. Manage risks of all types associated with the profession of dentistry
