Learn. Experience. Transform.

Many dentists who operate independent practices find it difficult to compete in the ever-changing marketplace. Many small group practices encounter the same challenges. Reduced reimbursements and emergence of group and corporate practices force practitioners to think about the future differently. The Dental Business Institute at Henry Schein was created to support and guide dentists through a successful entrepreneurial exploration of their business and its potential.

The Dental Business Institute is a year-long educational program that guides practitioners through the process of applying different business models to their practice vision. Attendees first identify their desired outcome, then design a business model that helps achieve that outcome. The model is tested through simulation to see how different decisions impact financial statements and attainment of business goals.

Program attendees can experience the impact of business decisions prior to investing time and resources. As plans are made, each action is tested to determine the impact on cash flow, profitability, and valuation. Based on the simulation results, participants learn where to adjust prior to implementation in the real world.

Explore Key Fundamentals of Entrepreneurism in the Dental Industry

Plan

A good business may not have a plan to follow but a great one does. The plan is the essential road map to success. This living document generally projects 3 to 5 years ahead and outlines the route a company intends to take to grow revenues.

Build

Business is a matter of practical experience. To build a successful business, you must master some basic yet crucial steps. Many times there are silly reasons for businesses to face failure. Further, infrastructure comes in many forms. The physical plant or building, technology, personnel positions, throughput for customers/patients, and finance all are foundational business components to build.

Lead

Depending on the research you read, estimates of failed change efforts vary from 50% to 80%. That is an enormous loss of time, energy, resources, and morale. This course is designed to help you understand why this may be so and to increase your awareness of how organizational leaders, managers, and change agents can be more effective with change interventions.

Lean

The core idea of lean is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources. A popular misconception is that lean is suited only for manufacturing. Not true. Lean applies to every business and every process. It is not a tactic or a cost reduction program but a way of thinking and acting for an entire organization.

LEARN. IMPLEMENT. GROW.
