Dr. John Meis is a 4th-generation dentist who started practicing in the depths of the recession in Sioux City, Iowa. He spent years and countless sleepless nights trying to figure out how to feel secure in his practice. wondering if there would ever be a day that he wouldn’t have to worry about the next payroll.
He thought that to have a better practice, he had to work harder and take on more and more. Over time, he began to realize that working harder did not mean making more money and clinical excellence didn't necessarily translate into a more successful practice.
He decided then that he needed to approach his practice like the business it was and began studying successful practices and learning from business leaders in a variety of industries.
After cycles of trial and error, he started to get traction and developed systems that transformed his practice. He was able to serve more patients and provide better care while creating a better life for his family, his team, and their families.
He did 3 important things:
#1: He systematically raised the standard of patient care and trained his whole staff to do the same.
#2: He put processes in place so others in the practice could step into leadership roles and the practice could become self-managing.
#3: He made important changes to increase the value of the practice and created a foundation of financial security
His practice tripled in just four short years and he multiplied one practice into an astonishing twelve. Today, Dr. Meis has become a trusted mentor to over 4,439 dental practitioners in countries around the world, serving them with cutting-edge leadership training and practice growth strategies.
