PROACTIVE PRACTICE MANAGEMENT
Today there are market forces changing the dental profession: Increased competition, healthcare reform, managed care, and challenges with personnel management, just to name a few. A tight economy, rapidly rising overhead, and reduction of dental insurance benefits by employers add to the challenges facing dentists today. Sadly, the ADA reports that fewer than 5% of all dentists are able to retire at a comfortable lifestyle after their 65th birthday. In spite of these alarming developments, the future is remarkably hopeful for those doctors willing to invest in their practice and their people in order to design strategic plans for success in this ever-changing environment.

|In today's ever-changing healthcare environment, it is critical to monitor and understand a practice's overall health and well-being. This unique service provided by Fred, "A Practice Assessment & Consultation" gives valuable, professional, and objective analysis of the vitality of a dental practice.|
Fred Heppner is a leading dental practice management advisor who delivers professional, objective practice assessments, and unmatched management consulting services. Since 1983, he has served the business of healthcare by enhancing dental and medical practices, and lecturing nationally on practice management strategies.
On-Site Approach with a Skilled Professional
Mr. Heppner is skilled at assessing private dental offices. He uses a compiled checklist of items that serve to measure the financial health of the practice. During private consultation with the doctor, a brief history of the practice is discussed in order to help Fred render a sense of the individuality that is characteristic of each office. Additionally, Mr. Heppner will meet with team members, evaluate the facility, and examine practice management systems.
The results of this
assessment process and evaluation will be a comprehensive, detailed
written report provided within ten days following the assessment. This
report includes findings, impartial observations, and professional recommendations
on specific actions to accomplish the doctors' objectives. A follow
up meeting is then scheduled to review the report and plan for the next
steps in putting the recommendations to work.
