Mark Battiato is the co-founder and Director of Practice Growth at The Growth Into Greatness Institute. In his capacity as a leader of these highly renown organizations, Mark’s primary focus is to provide one-on-one coaching and practice development in areas of profitability, financial management, and staff development. In this episode of The Progressive Dentist podcast, Mark joins us to share his story into dental leadership coaching. He discusses his leadership philosophy and talks about how we can implement some of those principles into our own practices.

Expanding Your Skillset

Learning how to run a successful dental practice requires much more than going to dental school. The harsh reality is that you could be the most clinically skilled dental practitioner in the world, but if you do not have patients walking through the door, your talent is wasted. Mark helps dentists master the business of dentistry so they can focus on doing what they do best. With his leadership principles, professional development techniques, and practice management strategies, dentists are able to increase cash flow in their practices to have the greatest impact on their communities.

Build Your Mastermind

Your degree from dental school is really just a passport to higher learning. If you are running your practice on P&L sheets alone, you are sure to be disconnected from reality. You need to surround yourself with people who have already done what you’re trying to do so you can learn from their struggles instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. Whether that takes the form of professional coaching or a mastermind that you build yourself, the journey of entrepreneurship is easier to navigate when you’re not alone.
