Be smarter with your chair time!

Maximize your production – without working longer hours or having a hectic, stressful schedule!

This two-day seminar is a dental scheduling “bootcamp” that will turn the doctor, office manager and scheduling coordinator into scheduling maestros!

Say goodbye to holes in the schedule, low-production days, and hectic long-hour days.

We’ll show you a system that has been proven to increase production without adding more hours or stress.

This scheduling system allows you to:

  • Produce more in less time
  • Have fewer broken appointments
  • Achieve production goals
  • Provide great service for your patients
  • Improve coordination and communication with your team
  • Make the workday ENJOYABLE instead of stressful!

How does it work?

There are several components that go into scheduling productively:

  1. Patient Communication. Scheduling isn’t just about the software program or a piece of paper. There are live people filling the appointments on that schedule, so the way the are communicated to about their appointments, treatment and financial arrangements can make or break your schedule. Utilizing this information is how MGE clients often double their production without adding any new patients, and nearly eliminate cancellations and no-shows.
  2. Designing the Schedule. In order to maximize production, the schedule must be laid out perfectly with every minute utilized, no doctor time left unaccounted for – but still with enough flexibility to fill last-minute openings, do thorough treatment presentations, and see new patients and emergencies on short notice. We’ll show you how to best utilize the doctor time, assistant time, hygienist time and all operatories in order to maximize efficiency. You’ll see how the “ideal day” is designed, and how you can achieve is every
  3. Planning & Coordinating with the Team. In too many office scheduling boils down to “fitting patients in wherever we can until it’s full.” That doesn’t help you achieve goals consistently! We show you how to plan the day, week and month to make production targets and determine where future production will be coming from so you can have prediction. This includes tracking important metrics and making it easy to coordinate the entire team and get everybody on the same page.
  4. Rolling with the Punches. As Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a plan till they get punched in the mouth.” What do you do when a procedure takes longer than expected? Or a patient cancels last minute? When an emergency calls during an already packed day? Or when the day looks busy but the dollar value for production is too low?

“MGE  really showed us how to organize our office in such a way that we can work smarter—not harder. Total production and collections have more than doubled and we run far more efficiently.” – Daryl Duncan, DDS Detroit, MI
“The MGE scheduling system has been fantastic for us! Over the years that I’ve been an MGE client, my practice has grown from $344,000 to $3 million a year. This scheduling system helped make the transition relatively smooth and stress-free. Each day we are able to maximize doctor production without it becoming hectic. We make our production goals consistently, eat a peaceful lunch and go home on-time. And the best part is, patients love it! They get in and out on-time and don’t have to wait.” – Ken Cirka, DDS Philadelphia, PA
“What we learned from MGE on scheduling helped us not only to plan our day better; it also drastically lowered stress in the office while increasing productivity and our ability to see more new patients. Instead of having a $5,000 day followed by a $200 day, our schedule is now extremely consistent.” – Tony Hatch, DDS San Diego, CA
“The information we learned from MGE completely changed the way we approach our schedule. Now production is consistently high, new patients sign up for and get started on treatment right away, and cancellations are at a minimum! MGE’s scheduling method was a key factor in quadrupling our production.” – Justene Doan, DDS San Diego, CA
