As orthodontists, we know that it takes a lot to build and grow a successful practice that provides us with the financial freedom and work-life balance we are all looking for.
In this episode, I am joined by Dr. Ann Marie Gorczyca from Antioch, California. She is a practicing orthodontist of 32 years. In addition, she has authored 4 books on dental practice management. These are the books she wished she had early on in her career.
She shares some of her vast wealth of knowledge on how we can better manage our practices to increase income, reduce expenses and maximize profits.
💡The bottom line is how profitable your practice is.
One important tip that Dr. Gorczyca insists on is the orthodontist’s role in clearing up the pending list by making follow-up calls. It doesn’t matter how long ago a patient came in for an exam; there is no downside to following up.
Tune in to tap into Dr. Gorczyca’s decades of experience in dental practice management to maximize profits in your practice!
