Apr 9, 2020

Mary Beth Kirkpatrick (1.25 CE)  With a solid start to 2020, orthodontists had every expectation to continue the year on course until an insidious microscopic virus exploded and our world changed in 15 days. Practices are facing the most profound and extreme business challenges imaginable.

Through all the chaos, we are a resilient group and there is great opportunity to re-engineer systems and re-set the course for a strong recovery. During this down time, get things done … refocus, re-engineer, reorganize. Embrace change. Most importantly stay in front of patients through various social media channels. Launch and complete those projects that could never get started. Mary Beth will share “best practice ideas” as well as actions the 360 team are witnessing from clients and colleagues. With actionable suggestions, you will be able to organize a “go forward” plan that will fast track a strong re-start!

Meet The Six Misses of Risk Management

Meet The Six Misses of Risk Management

Apr 17, 2020

Dr. Doug Depew (1.25 CE)  Risk Management is a key topic that not only doctors should be aware of, but also their team members. As you will see, team members do play a significant role in the practice's exposure to risk. This is especially true in orthodontics, where orthodontic auxiliaries often provide a significant portion of intra-oral procedures. And Risk management is far much more than avoiding malpractice lawsuits. This is especially true in orthodontics when the chance of a claim or a large settlement are much smaller than other areas of health care. Dr. Depew will share some valuable lessons and discuss other areas doctors and team members must be aware of to protect the doctors reputation and ability to practice and provide jobs for them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify areas of risk in the orthodontic practice
  • Name ways team member can affect the doctors reputation both positively and negatively
  • Identify methods and procedures that can be implemented to minimize risk
