10 steps to creating a vision for your dental practice
Dentistry iQ
Theodore C. Schumann writes, "Most management consultants tell us that the first step along the journey to success is to write our vision for our business. As an advisor to dentists for many years, I have found myself routinely giving this advice as well.

Going paperless: Saving your practice from its medical record nightmare
By Jessica Taylor
Stop me if this sounds familiar: A medical practice with about 50,000 patients has a paper chart for each. Like many small practices, a majority of the patients have had the same doctor for almost their entire lives — equating to a rather large paper trail.
