Everyone’s practice is unique – and so are your training needs!
Comfort of your practice
Whilst our workshops are obviously a fantastic tool to upskill your team, you won’t always have the means to travel to another location. Or perhaps you just prefer to learn in an environment you’re familiar with.
Regardless of your reasons, Prime Practice In-Practice Training delivers your training needs right to your doorstep. A customised solution that will fit the specific needs of your practice and team.
Unique needs mean unique solutions. Our In-Practice Training comes in many flavours, and will be tailored to your practice’s needs on the go. Below you’ll find an overview of the general topics we offer!
Minimise stress, maximise conversion and create a team environment
Every dental practice needs systems in order to create the optimal patient experience. Choose from a range of systems you wish to implement in your practice, for example appointment book management, team meetings and huddles, phone systems and active maintenance.
We will come and train your team on the best practice systems available to help minimise stress, maximise patient conversion and create a team environment. Having consistent systems means that each team member is clear on how to deal with each patient situation so that nothing falls through the cracks.
The patient experience
Get aligned with a consistent approach to the optimal experience
There are many facets to the patient experience, and providing an optimal experience requires input from every team member. Prime Practice In-Practice-Training can focus on any aspect of the patient experience and help your team get aligned with a consistent approach to the optimal experience.
We can also do a ‘walk of the patient’ and do a guided tour identifying each patient point of contact. This highly experiential learning opportunity creates lots of room for conversation and actions that can be delegated between your team members.
It costs 18x more to get new patients in the door than maintain your current team! For every practice, there is not only a need to get more patients through the door, but also to keep your current patients loyal. Learn how to create loyalty in your dental practice, what the whole team needs to focus on to “close the back door” and what numbers to track to ensure this happens.
Depending on what your practice needs, you might choose to learn powerful patient service skills for each role in the practice or how to create an Active Maintenance System that sets the whole practice up for success with patients returning to the practice regularly.
Peak performance teams
A range of activities to enhance your team
Teams who perform at their highest potential understand that each team member makes a critical difference to the patient experience and to the bottom line of the success of the practice.
Choose from a range of team enhancement activities including communication skills, how to give good and honest feedback, building trust with each other and how to become better at solving problems in the team.
Empowering patients, active maintenance and trust building
In a dental practice, the entire team is responsible for increasing production. There are many ways to increase production. If your practice wanted to do this, you might choose to learn Primespeak skills for the team to empower patients to take responsibility for their own oral health and select the right treatment for them.
You might choose to train your team to build trust from the minute they call the practice until they leave after a successful appointment. You might choose to train your team in active maintenance systems.
Setting up a new practice
Set your practice up for success
What are all the ins and outs of setting up a new practice? Learn from the experts in the fields how to set up effective systems for the practice from the get-go. Learn how to employ the right team and how to retain them with retention techniques, and HR skills.
Why is a website important for your practice and what does it need to include? How many patients do you need to cover your costs and grow the business? Why do you need to create loyal patients and how do you do that? Set your practice up for success with this in-practice training session.
Remain compliant & infection-free
How well does your staff know the standards (AS/NZS 4187/4815) and guidelines (ADA Infection Control Guidelines and/or DCNZ Infection Prevention and Control Practice Standard)?
While ultimately it is the clinician who is responsible for their patient’s welfare, infection prevention isn’t a simple one-(wo)man-job. The whole team has to be aware of and working towards ensuring your practice remains compliant and ultimately infection free.
Your marketing dollars are spent getting the phone to ring. When a prospective patient calls your practice, there is still a lot of work required to get them onboard as a new patient. Without training, inbound calls in a busy practice may often be treated as an unwelcome interruption to the front office’s day.
Get your front office team trained up to maximise conversions of phone calls to patients and optimise all phone conversations so that all patients are prepared before coming to your practice.
