In this episode, I emphasize the importance of investing time and effort into one’s orthodontic practice to achieve a balance between a profitable, low-stress life and personal fulfillment rather than seeking immediate gains or adhering to a minimal effort mindset. I share strategies for nurturing a practice that supports not only your financial goals but also your personal well-being.

Striking the right balance between motivation and achievement can feel like an impossible feat. But what if the answer lies not in traditional management techniques but in the fascinating world of brain science? Our latest podcast episode is all about this exciting new frontier of leadership, featuring Dr. Jason Jones, a renowned expert in organizational psychology and human performance enhancement. Dr. Jones emphasizes the crucial role of intrinsic motivation in driving team engagement and performance. Unlike traditional reward systems that offer external incentives, intrinsic motivation taps into individuals’ personal values and aspirations, creating a more sustainable and meaningful commitment to their work. By understanding the neuroscience behind motivation, leaders can cultivate an environment where employees feel connected to their work on a deeper level, leading to greater engagement and success.

It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind, chasing those numbers, but in the midst of all that striving, do we ever stop to ask ourselves what truly matters? It’s all about priorities. Take a hard look at your daily schedule. Personal growth is a journey, not a destination. It’s about constantly learning, evolving, and making a positive impact.

Ever wished your orthodontic practice could bring in more dough without you having to work extra hours? You can transform that unused space in your practice into a money-making machine, similar to renting out a spare room on Airbnb, but for Med Spa services. Imagine this: Med spa professionals rent your idle chairs when you are not treating your patients. You get extra income, and medical esthetics professionals get an affordable way to run their own business. Shannon Seeberan, VP of Business Development for CMS (Cloud Med Spas), joins me to discuss this business model.

Managing HR in an orthodontic practice is widely acknowledged as one of the most challenging aspects, exacerbated by the pandemic-induced staff shortages. The shortage of skilled team members presents a genuine existential threat to our profession. The retention of valuable team members is paramount, coupled with the creation of a supportive work environment. However, staying abreast of the ever-evolving HR landscape, state laws, and the constant spectre of legal action from dissatisfied former employees is no small feat.

In this episode, I had Mike Gordon from 3DNA Dental to discuss the revolutionary impact of 3D printing technology in orthodontics.
Departing from traditional in-house aligners that involve multiple steps, including setting up a case, printing models, and post-processing, direct print aligners streamline the process significantly.

In the ortho world, sure, I have my mentors, my ortho buddies, and the fantastic folks at the Orthopreneurs RD group, but expanding beyond that is crucial.

So, here’s my plea for 2024: evaluate who you’re spending time with. If it’s the same crew on repeat, you’re in a risky confirmation bias zone. Get diverse opinions!
