I have good news and bad news.
First, the good news: You’re a forward-thinking dentist who wants to build a better practice.
I know this because you’ve been led to this web page, which will help you do that.
Now, the bad news: Thinking and wanting the right things are not enough to succeed.
Not even close.
Not in the wake of COVID-19.
In fact, you have NO margin for error in your practice now.
The rest of 2020 will be the most important of your professional life.
Get it wrong, and here’s what you can expect ...
- The “real” unemployment rate has soared past 20% and the U.S. has lost 26.5 million jobs, according to Fortune magazine. We’re facing the worst labor market since 1934
- Some economists say full employment won’t happen until at least 2023
- A good scenario is that 20% of small businesses will fail due to Coronavirus, according to Yahoo News. That’s 1 of every 5 small businesses in your town closing their doors forever
All of which means that many of those lost paychecks, and your patients’ ability to pay for treatment, may not come back for years.
For these and other reasons ...
The Rest Of 2020
Is Fraught With Peril
You may be super busy after re-opening … you may be turning patients away or pushing them out for months because you don’t have the room to see them ...
... but as rosy as things look now, it’s not going to last.
Because there’s far too much economic uncertainty swirling around.
Unemployment is spiking at 14.7%. Stimulus checks are spent and PPP loans are expiring.
There’s no vaccine or herd immunity for COVID-19. And some states still won’t fully re-open until we hit that point.
For these and other reasons ...
· if you can’t see a new patient for far longer than normal ...
· if you haven’t returned to normal appointment times ...
· if you haven’t created new ways to handle the increased capacity ...
... you are losing patients. And they are leaving you permanently.
Here Are More Questions
You Must Have Answers To:
- In a recession, your case presentation MUST be hyper-effective to maintain your current level. Have you defined and documented your diagnostic criteria
- Is your hygiene reappointment rate 90% or higher? If not, what is your plan to get it there? If it is, how will you keep it at 90%?
- Your patients' ability to buy is reduced in a recession. You no longer have the luxury of sloth or waste. Do you have systems and processes in place to ensure your practice is operating at maximum productivity?
- Recessions, by definition, mean that money is harder to come by. Do you have a financial processes in place to make it as easy as possible to collect and retain what is owed to you?
- Can everyone in the practice (regardless of their role) predict how you will diagnose the case in front of them, with at least 80% accuracy?
For dentists who have a clear way forward in 2020, the future is a lot less cloudy.
Those dentists know where they’re going. They have a track to run on. They’re seeing daily progress. They’re too excited about the future to worry.
And you can join them when you request your ...
New, Free 45-Minute
Strategy Session By Phone
What is it?
A 45-minute planning session, with our Practice Production Advisor. She will help uncover 3-4 areas of your practice where you can quickly increase your efficiency and effectiveness by at least 9%.
Why is a 9% increase important?
Well, in the 2008 recession, the average dentist saw revenue fall by 3%.
But the economists on my team -- and my own experience navigating 3 recessions -- tell me that in the Pandemic Recession of 2020 it will be 3x worse, you can expect a revenue drop of at least 9%.
If you thought the 2008 recession was tough, you may not have enough to recover this time. You may find yourself in a nosedive too steep to pull out of -- and you will crash hard.
That’s why you simply must find a way to be 9% better in 2020. If you can do that, you'll be head and shoulders above every other dentist who sees their collections fall by 9% or more!
Of course, we can’t solve all your problems in one 45-minute phone call -- nobody can.
But we can help you find a clear path out of the woods. Because we have a different vantage point. We’re looking from the outside in, apart from the hectic hustle and bustle inside your practice now.
That’s why we can help define your best way forward. Then hand you a map that puts you on the Road to Recovery -- in the fast lane ...
Here’s Some Of What You’ll Discover
In This Eye-Opening Conversation
- Are you ready for the "new reality" of diagnosis and case acceptance? When 26 million Americans are jobless and your patients have taken on a tremendous amount of debt?
- How to survive and thrive in the Depression-type economy we’re now facing, when new patients simply won’t solve your problems
- The 3 critical elements that will dictate your success in 2020-2021
- How to recover faster and boost production for the next 6-12 months
- What’s your plan to avoid bad decisions based on your bank balance? Hint: By the time problems show up there, it’s too late. You’re stuck playing defense. We’ll help you fix that
During our conversation, lasting only 45 minutes, you get instantly actionable ideas. We’ll suggest at least 2-3 new strategies, available to you immediately, that you may be overlooking.
Please you get valuable insights to help you:
- Recalibrate your goals for 2020 (to jumpstart your confidence and your energy.
- Recession-proof your practice by being just 9% better (we’ll show you 9 simple ways to do it!)
- Protect your income and earning potential in 2021 and beyond ... to avoid a downgrading of your lifestyle (because a full economic recovery may take years)
Here’s why this is so valuable: To navigate the Pandemic Recession, you have to slow everything down and focus on the very next activity that’s going to lead you towards the outcome you want.
So often, we dentists get distracted by 1,000 things that we think we should do ... which is like riding a horse in all directions at once. You end up going nowhere. But if you just focus on the most important thing right now, that’s what can pull you out of the rut.
The breakthrough solution you’re looking for is just like that. It’s not about doing 1,000 things to survive COVID-19 ... or 100 things ... or even 25 things.
It’s about doing just a handful of things, in the right order, at the right time.
It’s about taking a step back from playing “whack a mole” with daily crises and reacting to whatever rules your governor is laying down. It’s about getting ahead of everyone else by having a methodical plan in place. Setting your practice up for success for the rest of 2020 -- and beyond.
On your Recession-Recovery Strategy Session, we see your practice with fresh eyes and discover neglected sources of production.
Remember, you need only make a few tweaks to get 9% better this year -- and put your practice on the fast track to recovery.
Why should pay attention to my partner Wendy Briggs and me?
Here’s Why You
Should Pay Attention To Us
Wendy Briggs has been a practicing hygienist for over 25 years. She provided great care to patients and brought in good money for the practice ...
... but she always had a sneaking suspicion that something was missing.
Then one day, it hit her.
Since hygienists are the front line of almost every dental practice ... spend the most time with patients ... and have the most tools to help patients enjoy a healthier, more attractive smile ... the million-dollar question was this: Why aren’t Hygienists maximizing their strengths?
She spent the next 10 years perfecting a system that turns hygiene into a profit-producing machine. However, profits are NOT the primary aim. Patient care is. But by providing world-class care, profits follow -- ethically and inevitably. It's truly win-win for all involved!
That's where Dr. John Meis comes in.
Just as Wendy cracked the code for hygiene production, Dr. John had cracked the code for optimizing office production, while creating a practice that is recession-proof.
Dr. John, like most dentists, struggled through the frustration of an under-preforming practice. He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on seminars, marketing products and coaching. He tried just about every gimmick for getting new patients and training his team, but progress was elusive.
Until one day it hit him: He was operating under the wrong structure. He was working as a dentist in a job, not running his practice as a business. Within 3 years, he was doing over $225,000 a month in personal production. More importantly, he had discovered 5 key systems that could grow production for any doctor and team, in any dental practice.
Now here's where it gets really interesting ...
Nine years ago, Dr. Meis hired Wendy to analyze his successful practice. He was already among the the top 1% in America for production. But ...
Just One Day After Wendy’s Visit,
Dr. John’s Hygiene Increased 73%!
Over lunch, the two determined that Wendy was the missing piece to Dr. John ... and Dr. John was the missing piece to Wendy.
On that day in 2009, the Team Training Institute was born.
Today, with a team of professionals who are living what they teach, TTI systems are revolutionizing dental practices worldwide. And since 2009 ...
We’ve Helped Hundreds Of Dentists
Grow Stronger And More Profitable
Here’s just a small sample ...
“Up $175,867 since October 2019,
with only 2 weeks in March and closed in April!”
“The program has been amazing. the increase in production and collections has been beyond my wildest dreams. The staff is highly, highly enthused. I actually stalled before joining the program. I thought, ‘We’re doing everything we need to do.’ But I finally decided to do this and I should have done it two years ago, when I first heard about it. It’s been phenomenal. It’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever done for my clinical practice.”
- Dr. Kevin Ward, Fishers, IN
“Over $10,000 increase in hygiene production in the first month!”
“We did, for both offices, $10,000 more in hygiene production than the month before. We are now in August, and we're up to $55,000 more for both offices and I still think we're just at the tip of the iceberg. We're really excited about it.”
- Dr. John Romulus, Jacksonville, NC
“$54,000 increase in best month!”
“Since October of last year, our production's gone from an average of about $120,000 a month to-- we're averaging year-to-date about $145,000. We’ve had our best month ever in March. We did $174,000 in hygiene alone. We’re really excited” -
- Gloria Courtney, Hygienist
“Our best year of dentistry in 25 years!”
“Before we began with the Team Training Institute, I felt like our hygiene department was in a rut, we weren’t growing, and we weren’t serving our patients as well as we could. As soon as we got involved with the coaching our practice went to a new level. Our hygienists are educating their patients better, we are making patients aware of things that impact their health and what they can do to improve it … and in the process we produced the biggest year we have had in dentistry in 25 years!”
– Dr. Charles Betts, Decatur AL
“$30,000 increase in FIRST month!”
“After one month, our hygienists increased revenues by $30,000. I say that again. That's $30,000 in just one month's time. This program is fantastic.”
- Dr. Jay Jensen, Salt Lake City, UT
Wait, Maybe We Shouldn’t Talk
While the current crisis may be new and frightening to you, I’ve now lived it dozens of times with the dentists for whom I provide practice growth guidance.
And you can tap into my 34 years of experience ... and use it to solve your biggest problems in 2020 ... by requesting your Recession-Recovery Strategy Session.
You won’t qualify for a Recession-Recovery Strategy Session just because you’re a dentist and can fog a mirror. That’s because, if you’re not motivated to grow your practice … if you’re not open-minded about new ways to increase production … or if you’re just skeptical about everything these days … sorry, we won’t click.
But if you’re ambitious and persistent … if you see your production numbers as a frustrating weakness, one that makes you vulnerable to bigger, better‐funded competitors …
... if the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed you to do whatever it takes to preserve the lifestyle you’ve worked so hard to build for your family ... then you should take advantage of this.
Why Timing Is Important
During the next 30 days, we’re filling open spots in our schedule. And there’s limited time available to prepare for your call, while also serving our members.
Which makes it impossible for us to do more than a handful of Recession-Recovery Strategy Sessions by phone in the coming weeks. Therefore, I can’t promise to extend this offer beyond 21 days from today.
Are You Worried That
Your Time Will Be Wasted?
Of course, if you’re smart and you’re busy, you may be skeptical. And you may think this phone call is nothing more than a sales pitch. But that’s not that it at all.
After reviewing your specific situation, de-mystifying your problems and clarifying your goals, we will prescribe a course of action to help. At the end of the conversation, you’ll be given 3 options: implement the plan yourself, implement it with our help, or do nothing.
You can then make an informed, intelligent decision. And it’s fine if you decide you want to go it alone or do nothing. There are no strong-arm sales tactics to worry about.
I want to be clear that we’ve worked very hard to make sure your time is NOT wasted and that you get real value from your Recession-Recovery Strategy Session ...
That’s Why I Can Make You
This Worry-Free Guarantee:
You will find our Recession-Recovery Strategy Session by phone to be highly profitable, full of eye-opening information and useful advice. If you don’t agree, for any reason or no reason, let us know and I’ll immediately write you a check for $200 or send you a $200 Amazon gift card to compensate you for your time. In fact, you don’t even have to tell us directly. Just e-mail us after your Session to let us know if you think your time was wasted and that you want your compensation.
Of course, after we talk, you may want to our help to guide you through 2020 and beyond. If so, and if we feel there’s a match, we’d welcome that opportunity. Yet, even if we never work together, your Recession-Recovery Strategy Session will spark valuable ideas you would never get otherwise.
Your time will NOT be wasted.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, aren’t we? You can’t make a decision to work with us now, and we can’t make a decision to accept you now. Let’s explore …
