Guiding Principles

proveermain1a_03

Healthcare first
Proveer’s clients are healthcare professionals first and business people second. Dentists face unavoidable tradeoffs between healthcare interests and business results. From our view, putting healthcare interests first is not only the right thing to do, but creates long-term value that usually outweighs short-term business results.

Every practice is unique
Different practices have different strengths, weaknesses, values, personalities, and aspirations…and that’s the way it should be. Uniqueness presents an opportunity to deepen the bond with existing patients and stand out when attracting new patients.

Alignment
The various pieces of the practice should be aligned with each other – financial policies, fees, scheduling, staff talents and training, job descriptions, technology, compensation and rewards, patient interactions, and on and on. While optimal management choices vary by practice, management choices should be consistent within each practice.
