Posted on April 29, 2020

Dental Market Direction Consortium (DMDC) is a new dental organization born from the COVID-19 impact. We are an army of clinicians, industry experts and educators shoulder to shoulder - virtually! While we do not have all the answers yet, we’ve been listening and we are here to help. We pledge to give you the necessary vision, tools, pathway & support to become Practice Strong.

Occupational safety and personal well being must come first, followed by a sensible communications plan for your fellow colleagues and patients. Now is the time to self-assess, build a revised blueprint, consider necessary and innovative options that will not only make you less vulnerable, but poised for success. There will be a new principles in practice management, new clinical expertise and therapies, and new roles and responsibilities within your practice. Innovative technology and digital workflows will shift from optional to mandatory. This consortium will provide 3 key cornerstones:

New Practice Principles

We have been stopped in our tracks. And now must improve what we do, setting aspirational goals, learning from failures and readjusting for success. This applies to both clinical and business principles. We will help you set objectives for yourselves (the entire team) but you must hold yourself accountable. Build back the culture of your practice, get the people right and rebuild your machine. External marketing & communication strategies targeted to the public, your patients and colleagues come next. You will fine-tune your clinical expertise; introducing new therapies for patient benefit and practice growth; to staying healthy and attaining mental balance. We will help you transform your practice and positively impact your life.

Live Interactive Education

DMDC will provide an educational platform that will cover the clinical and business topics listed above, and much more. Our curriculum is novel, and specifically formulated to assist you, the dental professional, in getting back to business with a patient first mindset and a practice second focus on revenue generation and profitability, ensuring success.

True Industry Partners

The products and services you will come to rely upon must also fit in to your new clinical and business model. Features and benefits must now support provisions to get you back on your feet.
