The Most Important Thing You Should Do for 2017

“I don’t have time!” “Where can I get reliable, accurate information?”

If you’ve ever uttered those words in a moment of frustration, you are not alone. Marketing, practice and insurance management, coding/billing, HR and compliance are just a few of the things that demand your time — not to mention the normal demands of your practice.

Making the best use of your time is the single most important thing you can do for your practice in 2017, but you can’t do it alone. We all have the same number of hours in a day, so what is the best way to get help when you need it, in the areas you need it?

Simple. Establish a virtual team of experts with the focused expertise and knowledge to support your compliance efforts.

How do you know you’re ready for a virtual team?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Are last year’s projects still incomplete?
  2. Does it seem as if you just can’t reach the next level?
  3. Are you overwhelmed by growing compliance and regulatory expectations?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then perhaps you’re ready for a virtual team.

Think of the members of the Institute’s Compliance Community as part of your virtual team. The Compliance Community is comprised of dental professionals with backgrounds as diverse as clinicians, business staff, sales and industry experts, consultants and educators. Like you, they want to stay up to date on critical regulatory requirements impacting dentistry, elevate their overall compliance knowledge and connect with like-minded dental professionals. Many have already graduated from the Institute and apply their newly acquired knowledge in their work every day. Being able to leverage the collective knowledge of a group of compliance gurus will have a profound and positive impact on your entire practice.

Ideally, your goal is to develop a long-term relationship with the Compliance Community members.

Make 2017 the best year yet by making the Compliance Community’s network a regular part of your virtual team.
