On-Site Practice Analysis (Business Diagnosis)

We come to you for our on-site practice analysis, meeting with every member of your team to align people, processes, and systems.

At Aldridge & Associates, LLC we strongly encourage each and every client to complete an on-site practice analysis or “Business DIAGNOSIS.” As clinicians we understand that we cannot ethically treat a patient without performing an examination. Similarly in business we must do the same. Your business diagnosis will help us formulate an individualized, comprehensive plan for your practice to grow and become more successful.

How the Practice Analysis “DIAGNOSIS” Works

At Aldridge & Associates, LLC, our on-site practice analysis is conducted personally by Dr. Duke Aldridge, DDS, MBA. The process is initiated by you or one of your key employees. Upon receipt of your inquiry and registration you will be contacted and requested to submit critical data (we submit the forms for your use) that will authorize the process to begin. We immediately begin to analyze your data and schedule an on-site visit.

Our on-site visit is conducted by Dr. Aldridge, MBA and one of his operations specialist. A proper diagnosis is serious business and we take no short-cuts. This is why we send two (2) experts to perform every on-site practice analysis.

During our visit we meet with you and your staff, face to face and spend one entire day observing the key areas of your business. We ask questions based upon “dental best practices” strategies while maintaining a low profile to minimize any disturbance.

At the end of the day, we meet with you and provide you with an overview of our findings. This is followed by a comprehensive report that highlights your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT). This report incorporates metrics to quantify the overall results and thus provide you a very clear picture by which you can improve your practice.

Our goal is to listen to you, gather data, observe and provide recommendations in crucial areas and provide you the opportunity to move quickly to implement a business plan.

In clinical dentistry we must listen to our patients, understand their chief complaint, obtain records (Pano, FMX, BWs, CT, 6-point probe, H & N exam, etc.), complete a thorough examination and confidently recommend treatment. Only with the proper diagnosis can you move forward with the assurance you can reach your goals and objectives. We are here to provide you the guidance to make informed decisions.
