Is your Hygiene Dept Pulling It’s Weight?

A common theme that I see over and over again in stagnant and struggling practices is an under performing hygiene department.

It’s even common for exceptionally profitable dental practices to have hygiene departments that are actually losing money.

For most dental offices, making a few small adjustments in scheduling, treatment planning, and communication can dramatically increase the practice’s profitability and patient retention.

But where do you start?

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of our profession’s most dynamic and successful hygiene department coaches, Heidi Arndt, RDH.

Heidi is the real deal and her resume is impressive. At one point in her career she was in charge of over 1,000 hygienists in a group practice consisting of hundreds of locations as well as working at the Mayo clinic.

She now dedicates her life to helping private practice owners to experience explosive growth in their hygiene departments.

Heidi is also part of our awesome line-up of speakers featured at this year’s Dental Success Summit scheduled for March 14-15th in San Diego.

    Do you think they all had a go at Sarah Harding backstage afterwards.
