Summit Study Club

Summit Study Club was founded in 2009 by Dr. William J. Carter and his colleagues for the purpose of sharing Knowledge. We bring together professionals of all types of dentistry to expand our knowledge of the latest technologies and procedures available for periodontal care, including dental implants and restorations and bone and tissue grafting.

Summit Study Club is exclusively for dental professionals. Our Goal is to bridge the gap between the General and Periodontal practices. Building Relationships through Knowledge!

Connecting the Dots In our Dental Practice
Uncovering the value of the 3 C's
Communication, Collaboration, and Connection

Have you ever noticed the pace of your practice? It's fast, right? We move quickly. This is great, this is the goal, but this pace can leave us vulnerable to the blindspots of not slowing down to communicate, collaborate and connect.

In this workshop we will roll up our sleeves to learn more about how to communicate more effectively with our patients, our co-workers, and our team members... and maybe even other special relationships in your life. We will build a foundation of intentional communication in this meeting. We will use this foundation as the launchpad to create increased profitability, more efficient systems and processes, and a more blissful workplace.

We will cover things such as...

  • Internal Study Club
  • Team member recognition
  • Team meetings
  • Huddle
  • Performance reviews
  • Team member development
  • Producing and retaining high achievers
  • The power of simple curiosity and relationship building
  • Clear expectations, and job descriptions
  • Handoffs
  • Goals, vision, purpose

Come join me for a day of interactive, deeply connected fun!
