What Owning a Dental Practice is Really Like
Owning a dental practice can be like drinking water from a fire hose. It completely consumes you physically, emotionally and intellectually. You not only wear the hat of a clinical dentist, you have to also play the role of human resources, accountant, marketing, public relations, lease negotiator, salesman, supply management, janitor, referee, etc. Whomever believes there is a 40 hour work week as a practice owner has not owned a dental practice. Yet, all the public ever sees of you are your two eyes above your surgical mask. They don’t see or appreciate your countless hours refereeing staff disputes, negotiating a new lease, fixing a broken chair, or installing a new light. They think you are gone fishing or at your lake house every weekend.
Many of you have recognized the power and need to delegate. You have people you can trust – your knowledgeable service rep now fixes your chair, a skilled plumber who fixes the leaky sink and an expert commercial broker who takes care of your lease. By delegating you have freed up your time, reduced your stress and let the experts use their skills to do what they do best.
When it comes time for your dental transition, you can try doing it yourself, but that’s like giving the patient a sharp dental instrument to clean their own teeth. They don’t have the knowledge, experience or skills to do it right and may end up bleeding in the end. Or, you can entrust your dental transition to the people at OMNI who have the experience, knowledge and track record to help you achieve your goal giving you peace of mind, freedom and more happiness.
