Welcome to Dental Management Innovations. My name is Patrice Bonnell and I am the Co-Founder and Senior Management Consultant at Dental Management Innovations.
For more than 20 years, I have helped dentists just like you, overcome so many of the incredible challenges you face each and every day. I am the expert in connecting the clinical aspects of dentistry with the management tools and implementation necessary to achieve the results you want.
Since I was very young, my parents raised me to always think outside of the box. My father was an entrepreneur since his early 20’s and like most business owners, through trial and error, he figured out how to create financial success for himself and so many others. He raised us with that same mindset. He would always say “To be a successful entrepreneur, search for what is missing, examine what challenges and problems people are having and create the solution for them. That is the key to being a great leader.”
So, with that in mind, I started my journey into dentistry. My first job after graduating from college was selling dental supplies and equipment to dental practices. I was good at selling but I was not fulfilled in what I was doing. I have Always wanted to make an impact in people’s lives and selling dental supplies just wasn’t doing it for me. What I did realize was that so many Dentist’s were all having the same problems: patients not scheduling treatment, patients not staying in the hygiene program, constant patient no-shows and late cancellations even though they were confirmed the day before, not enough patients, marketing to new patients, staff that is good but not really great, staff turnover and who can train the new person, revenue only increasing minimally, and as you know, the list goes on and on and on…….
So, I started paying attention to what the “Successful” Dentists were doing and began asking lots and lots of questions. I quickly realized there were small tweaks that just needed to be made here and there to help the “less successful” Doctors succeed and with this, I became hooked. Here were these incredibly skilled Dentists who simply needed guidance on how to maximize their business and communication skills as well as that of their teams.
I found my niche and I loved it! I dove into every management book I could find (I Love Learning) and attended seminar after seminar and training after training and applied these trainings in my client’s offices. Next thing I knew, I had a thriving consulting business doing what I love to do, making people and practices successful and helping Dentist achieve the success they truly deserve and live the kind of life they Choose to live.
I am a forward thinking, results-driven coach and have gained success helping small and large practices just like yours, achieve immediate growth, create effective management systems, strengthen leadership abilities, dramatically improve communication skills, increase income and create more time to do the things you truly desire to do while reaching the financial freedom and quality of life you desire.
I believe in getting to the core of your challenges while strengthening your talents and implementing strategies to develop your blind spots.
The greatest leaders realize that they can’t do everything well and know the time is Now to surround yourself with experts who can, so you can focus on what you do best, practice superior dentistry and provide exceptional patient care.
