Ammar Idlibi has extensive experience in running dental practices, having formed a private practice in Damascus, Syria in 1995 before returning to the United States and forming Kids Dental Care, which has three locations in Connecticut. While knowledge in dentistry is crucial to success in running a practice, there are a number of other key tasks that you must complete if you wish to take this route in your career.
Find What Makes You Unique
Every business needs to have something that sets it apart from the competition and your dental practice is no different. You need to consider what makes you unique and make whatever it is prominent in your advertising. This could be anything from offering a type of treatment that is not available anywhere else through to providing the most comprehensive service in your location.
Create A Workplace Culture
As your business expands you will start hiring more people. It is crucial that each hire fits the mold of what you are looking for in people who represent your practice, plus you need to deliver a working environment that is attractive to professionals. Create a defined workplace culture and embed it into your new hires.
The skills your staff bring to the table will serve your practice well, but to provide the highest standards of care you need to place a lot of focus on providing training opportunities. This benefits your patients and also allows for career progression within the practice.
