9:00am 12:30pm Dr. Gerry Sampson: “The Exceptional Office Effective Strategies for Challenging Times”
Consider this novel thought: that the successful, happy practice is not a series of random events. It 's an intentional combination of enthusiastic, motivated and valuable people who, on a daily basis, have planned to do good work, understand and enjoy what they're doing and set a fine example. When dealing with reality and the stress of a busy schedule, demanding parents, patients, staff issues and increased competition The Exceptional Office rises to the occasion showing the skills essential to good rapport.
This presentation will focus upon an entertaining and educational look at achieving these goals.
Participants are assured of a motivating, provocative and worthwhile clinical experience .
Learn the key ingredients for “ sustained individual success”
Reality check: social media and reputation management.
Learn the essential ingredients for loyalty and repeat business.
Increased competition: setting yourself above and apart
How to respond (and not respond) to various office behavioral situations.
What are the most effective methods for intercepting patient complaints?
What are the most successful methods to manage a patient/parent
who is clearly very upset and dissatisfied?
What makes an office “exceptional” and why does the Exceptional Office thrive
while others stumble?
Described as an educational entertainer, Gerry Samson completed pediatric
dental residency at Emory University and orthodontics at Northwestern University, 1981. Since that time Gerry has been in private orthodontic practice and he is a Diplomat of The American Board of Orthodontics. In addition to orthodontic private practice, Dr. Samson holds formal faculty appointments at 6 USA postgraduate programs, is consultant to private pediatric dental and orthodontic practices, clinical director for one of the largest dental service organizations in North America, and lectures extensively. Dr. Samson's presentations emphasize an evidence based approach stressing clinical decisions based on science.
