Take Advantage of Virtual Learning Opportunities to Protect Your Practice

By Sally McKenzie, CEO Printer Friendly Version

Practicing dentistry is a little different these days. As many offices reopen after the coronavirus pandemic forced them to close, dentists are facing new challenges. Patients have financial concerns that weren’t a factor at the beginning of the year and are worried about being exposed to the virus. They’re going to be slow to schedule routine visits and even more cautious when it comes to accepting needed treatment.

And then of course there are the systems that were struggling even before the COVID-19 health crisis hit. The weaknesses in these systems are now exacerbated, and that’s certainly not helping you regain your production numbers.

Yes, these are challenging times but please remember you don’t have to figure everything out on your own. It’s OK to ask for help. At McKenzie Management, we’re offering guidance virtually. All of our on-site trainings are now available via our new Virtual Dental Programs. Through an online person-to-person software program, you’re able to connect with your consultant with any smartphone, computer or tablet. You and your team members can discuss the challenges you’re facing with your consultant, who will help you develop a strategy to improve your practice.

If you’ve ever thought about working with a dental coach/consultant, now is certainly the time. McKenzie Management can help get you back on track. Virtual consulting makes it easy to get the guidance you need to objectively look at your practice and put an action plan in place to help start producing more and growing your bottom line—which needs to happen now more than ever.

Interested in learning more? Here are a few of the benefits virtual consulting provides:

You don’t have to leave your office, saving time and money
Once you reopen, you’re going to need to spend as much time in your office as possible. Production may be slow to ramp up at first, but you want to be available to patients who are ready to see you—even if that means working unconventional hours. With virtual learning, you don’t have to worry about traveling to an offsite location for training. You and your team members can meet with your consultant in a comfortable, familiar environment.

Virtual coaching also eliminates the expense that comes with you or your consultant traveling for an in-person meeting. You can meet face-to-face at a time that’s convenient for you, and you can start implementing strategies discussed immediately.

Virtual learning gives you flexibility
Not only can you meet with your consultant from anywhere using any device at a time that fits into your schedule, you also can involve more team members if you’d like. That is more difficult when travel is required. Now, the entire team or single departments can participate. It’s up to you.


You’ll retain more of what you learn
McKenzie Management’s virtual programs are divided into smaller learning segments, making them easier to understand and implement. And the shorter, more frequent training sessions enable better retention of new ideas. You’ll be able to implement strategies discussed with your consultant right away, helping you reach success as soon as possible.

Everything you need is right there
Because you’ll be in your office during your learning sessions, you’ll have direct access to your practice management software. This allows for customization and evaluation in real-time, which is a huge advantage.

You have access to experienced, talented consultants
McKenzie Management consultants are the best in the industry, and they’re committed to helping you achieve success. Your personal consultant will guide you through the changes you’ll need to make to grow your practice during these challenging times. You’ll receive immediate feedback during your training sessions, but the support doesn’t end there. You and your team members have unlimited email access to your coach. If any questions come up between sessions, email your consultant and you’ll receive an answer right away.

Training sessions feature multimedia content
During training you’ll have access to PDFs, Excel and Word files and your consultant will use PowerPoint to help explain strategies. Multimedia content enhances the learning experience to ensure you get the most out of your training sessions.

Virtual learning is affordable
After not working for a few months, you might be hesitant to spend money on training. That’s why I’ve made my Virtual Dental Programs so affordable. I want you to have access to the guidance you need to boost productivity and get your practice on the road to success and profitability. These programs will help you do that at a budget-friendly price. And the small investment will be worth it once productivity begins to rise.

Your practice might be open again but it’s not business as usual. These are unprecedented times, and you’re going to need to make some adjustments if you want to thrive. I know it’s overwhelming but you’re not alone. McKenzie Management’s Virtual Dental Programs can help. All my proven programs are now available virtually to guide you as you navigate through the new normal. Just reach out and we’ll get you started.
