The Power and Profitability of Focus: How to Focus and Grow into a “Super Practice”
Research shows the average dentist worked 10% more hours in the past year compared to the previous years. Meanwhile, the American Dental Association reported that average incomes have “decreased significantly for all general practitioners since the peak value of $219,378 in 2005.” While the average practice has suffered with more work for less pay, other practices have actually managed to flourish and grow since 2005! Through the power of focus, the dentists in these flourishing “super practices” profit more and work less hours than the average dentist.
Every dentist works hard in his/her office. If we all put forth 100% effort each day, why do some dentists produce more than others? If dentists are working 10% more hours now than in the past, why is our average income going down? Why is the average dentist producing $350 per hour, while another dentist just down the street is producing two to three times that much?
The average dentist, by definition, is either the best of the worst half or the worst of the best half. You deserve better than that! You are invited to take a glimpse through the eyes of a focused “super dentist.” Your eyes will be opened to how really great dentistry can be.

In today’s world, there is a plethora of information available at any time to anyone with access to Google or any of the many search engines on the internet. However, as most people know, the abundant information is often incomplete, inaccurate, or even completely wrong. The information related to the field of dentistry on the internet, in print media, and on television is the same – incomplete, inaccurate, or even completely wrong. You, as a dentist, know this – and your patients and potential patients know this as well. There are millions of people searching for answers to their dental problems and concerns from a resource they can trust. So, if the internet isn’t that trusted resource – what is? It could be, and it should be YOU.
The top 3% of income earners in any profession are speakers. Public speaking in your own community is one of the best public services you can provide for your community – and you will be highly regarded and well compensated for it.
If you are an average dentist, and you want to stay that way – public speaking is not for you. If you are willing to step a little out of your comfort zone and to passionately share with your community all the great things our great profession has to offer – you and your community will all be better for it!
