"When I met Dr. John Meis, I had 4 practices. I was working six days a week. And, didn’t know how to scale. I needed someone to fill in the blanks.
I didn’t understand executive management. And, I didn’t know how to build a support team. But, I was smart enough to know I needed some help. That’s when I discovered Dr. Meis.
Each of my eleven practices are two to three times larger than the closest competitor, which is another way of saying my practices, none of which were dominate when I acquired them, now DOMINATE their market areas.Dr. Meis’ teaching and guidance played a big role in making this happen.
My plans are to keep opening offices. And, keep helping people by delivering excellent dentistry, and excellent patient care.
I was not prepared for that kind of gut punch. It hurt. But I’m not one to whine and cry. So instead of feeling defeated, I made up my mind to solve the problem once and for all.
Knowing next to nothing about how to do that, I got started, and did well. The referral part was excellent. Each practice I bought became a DEPENDABLE source of referrals to my specialty practice. Soon enough, my specialty practice was booked solid and stayed that way.
And, realized there were a LOT of things I didn’t know. Fortunately, that’s when I met Dr. Meis, who helped solve all the problems and made the journey from owning four practices to eleven seem easy."
As a doctor in private practice the BIGGEST risk you will ever face has nothing to do with making a calculated business decision like buying practices, or opening new ones.
The BIG RISK, the one that can kill your joy and leave you feeling out of step, out of time and alone, is NOT doing something to strengthen your position, so come what may, DSOs or anything else, your business stays strong, jobs are secure, and you are happy helping patients and building a fortune in your chosen profession.
Dr. Meis has played a huge role in helping make this happen for me."
