In Designing Your Perfect Dental Practice: Foundations of Clinical Success, Dr. Jay M. Hislop, D.D.S., provides the design by which today's fee-for-service dentist can create their own perfect dental practice! In 17 chapters (including 26 standard operating procedures) directed at both the general dentist and specialist, this book shows how today's dentist can design their own future, establish a philosophy to make it come true, then translate that philosophy into practical, usable business management solutions. The result is an easy-to-read, straightforward guide equally as valuable for the recent graduate as the veteran looking to put their practice into prime, resalable form. Hislop involves the reader by telling the fictitious story of a fellow dentist, Steve, who is simply overwhelmed and seeing his practice and life approaching toward a crisis point. Steve is skillfully interwoven into the nonfiction material, adding insight and some levity to the excellent text. What other benefits can result from applying Hislop's guidelines? More efficient operations, better patient outcomes, higher profits, reduction in malpractice risk, true quality control on referrals, clear communication between doctors and their staff, better staff relations, faster patient service, better patient compliance and retention, outstanding practice growth, peace of mind that the practice philosophy is understood and followed, no patients "lost to recall" or "lost to referral," an environment with which managed care can't compete, and increased referrals for specialists. The $50 digital book is a great Christmas gift for a fellow dentist.
