Ep #204: Heidi Mount – It All Starts With Your Team and Your Leadership
People often seem not to value their teeth, but in reality, this has a lot to do with how well their dentist is educating and communicating with them. Heidi Mount is a consultant and international speaker who helps dentists find what they’re missing, stress less, have happier employees, and profit more from their practices. She emphasizes the importance of working smarter, not harder, as well as why it’s crucial to listen to patients and understand what they truly need and want.
When it comes to communication, Heidi has a lot of valuable tips on filling the gaps where dentists often fail to close a sale. She also has some great insight on how to redirect focus away from distractions and inefficiencies in order to create a more efficient practice. Listen in to learn how building the right team and getting them involved and invested will help take your practice to the next level.
