The changing landscape of healthcare brings into sharp focus the necessity for dentistry to understand its need to engage in the leadership process as well as effective management. This course is intended to introduce the learner to what Practice Leadership is all about and the many benefits that accompany this approach.

Practice Leadership is often a foreign concept within a dental practice, however many who “lead” practices believe they are using leadership while actually using management. While both management and leadership are necessary to effectively operate a practice, the scales have historically been tipped to management and remain that way today. The benefits of leadership within a dental practice are extensive, but largely underutilized. Practice Leadership 101 introduces the learner to the understanding of the principles of leadership as a useful process for practice leaders.

With an understanding of these introductory principles of leadership, the learner is able to identify practices that will serve them well both individually and for the practice. Many of the principles taught can be immediately considered and used. As the learner practices the principles, the many benefits of utilizing a leadership model for practice operations will emerge.
