Notice to All Users

CDA has deployed a new association management system requiring all members create a new cda.org user account, but thankfully, the process is virtually painless. Simply go to cda.org/password and enter a few quick fields. That's it. As a thank you, we'll give the first 1,000 people a $5 Starbucks gift card.

Practice Assessment: How Healthy is Your Business?

Sponsored by CDA Practice Support

As dental professionals, we spend a tremendous amount of time and energy ensuring we provide a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan to our patients.  It is equally as important to regularly conduct a comprehensive exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan of the dental practice.

The speakers will walk you through the recommended practice management, employment management, and dental benefit plan assessments, or “exams” that every practice owner should regularly conduct. The course will highlight the “practice assessment” tools available to CDA members, and the supplemental resources that will not only help you “diagnose” the problems, but more importantly “treatment plan” the solutions.  And once you have your practice’s “treatment plan” in hand, the actual work of implementing the changes begins.  The course will address when it’s time to bring on a consultant to manage the implementation and help train the dental team.

Tip of the Week

Use a daily task tracking system to help keep your day organized. Make a list or utilize your office procedure manual to complete your daily tasks in order of priority. This will create fewer surprises at the end of the day and therefore lower the stress level of the office staff.
