September 12, 2013 -- TUCSON, AZ (PRWEB) - What many are calling the "great recession" has changed the practice of dentistry in fundamental ways that are likely to be permanent, according to Dr. Roger Levin, chairman and CEO of Levin Group, the largest practice management consulting firm in North America.
But with the right mind-set, dental practices can navigate these changes and generate growth in the new economy, Dr. Levin emphasizes in a two-part episode of "15 Minutes to Excellence," DrBicuspid.com's video chat series featuring some of the industry's leading consultants.
"This last recession is different than any we've had since the Great Depression," Dr. Levin noted. "Today, there are two types of economy: the U.S. economy, which is actually getting better as we speak, and the dental economy, which is not. This may sound like bad news, but there are specific steps that can be taken to improve your practice."
In his discussion of the "eight permanent game changers," Dr. Levin outlines not only the challenges but how dental professionals can successfully respond to them.
"At Levin Group, we recognized that consulting, as of four years ago, had to change -- the recession was so deep and so long that what we had done in the past, despite having worked beautifully for years, was no longer going to be good enough," he said. "So we did a lot of research, launched new consulting programs, and I'm proud to say that 99% of our clients have seen growth, even during the recession. That would never have happened if we hadn't understood these eight permanent game changers and been able to make the changes necessary to get results."
