I’m excited to introduce you to my special guest for this podcast episode, Dr. Brady Frank. Brady has owned and managed multiple practices over the last decade, and so I wanted to invite him onto the show to talk about his experience with managing multiple doctors, locations and streams of income.

Brady is a highly sought-after speaker and Continuing Education trainer. He has addressed thousands of dentists at popular seminars across the country including Excellence in Dentistry, Phasing-Out Seminars (including over 20 presentations) and Schein/Camlog Seminars. Brady’s main topics of focus in his seminars include Implantology, Dental Transitions, and Entrepreneurial Satellite Practice Ownership.

We discussed:

  • Brady’s journey through dental school and how an injury to his wrist jeopardised his career as a dentist so instead of practicing dentistry, he became a practice owner and bought 12 practices in just seven years
  • How to develop multiple streams of income and achieve financial abundance and security
  • What to expect when you go to a financial planner
  • The importance of finding your passion and creating income through that passion
  • The ability to take an old dental practice and transform it into something special
  • Cash Flow Theory Vs Accumulation Theory – how to turn your equity into cash flow
  • The steps you can take to accumulate multiple practices and receive a steady cash flow
  • Using DDSO to help you purchase your first dental practice
  • Brady’s book, “Transition Time” and how you can use it to help develop your own personalized strategy to build and grow your practice (or multiple practices)
  • Special components needed to scale your practice and using the DDSO Blueprint Process to learn how you can continue investing in dentistry
  • How to convert equity into cash using the “equity harvesting” technique
  • Why you should think about adding another owner and “sharing the wealth”
  • The principles of adding value to a practice
  • Why marketing is the BEST investment a dentist can make
  • How to take “good debt” and use it to pay off your “bad debt”
  • The benefits of co-ownership and deciding whether or not this is a viable option for you

In this week’s podcast episode, I talk about how you can get your team to crush your production goals.

Have you ever thought about the life cycle of growing a business? In the beginning, production levels are through the roof. However, if you’re the business owner, it’s likely that you’re doing most (if not all) of the work. It’s your practice, after all, so you are the one creating the systems, seeing patients and leading the team. You do everything you can to get your practice off to a great start, and it all goes well…up until a certain point.

Eventually, you burn out. You feel overwhelmed, stressed and you just can’t do it anymore. You’re exhausted, and it’s not long before your own productivity simmers down. At this point, it’s critical to build and structure your team. You need to put them in a position where they can take your vision for the practice and take it to the next level.

Here’s what I discussed on the podcast:

  • Glenn Vo’s story on hitting his monthly goals despite working fewer hours!
  • The importance of empowering and training your team to carry out your vision
  • Discover what motivates your team and let them know that if they work with you to achieve the practice’s goals, they can accomplish ALL of their own goals too
  • Making your team members aware of what’s expected of them
  • Training team members to close cases
  • Having processes in place that encourage patients to agree to your treatment plan
  • Using whiteboards as a strategy to track your practice’s services
  • Giving your patients a variety of payment options and why this can help grow your practice
  • What to do if your practice is not on track to hit its monthly goals and how you can resolve the issue, overcome obstacles and hit your monthly target
  • How to be proactive and market your practice on social media and with a simple but effective email marketing strategy
  • Building a productive team and creating an effective and profitable action plan

I really hope you enjoyed this podcast episode! Join us over on the Dental Marketing and Profits Facebook Group, where I’d love to hear what you thought about this episode!
