Leslie Griesdorf devoted his life to compassionate, caring dentistry for more than 30 years. The Owner and Founder of his own Toronto-based dental surgery office until 2004, Leslie Griesdorf set himself apart as a patient-oriented practitioner; someone who’s first and foremost goal was always to put the patient’s dental health, and the patient experience, above all else.
As someone who practiced dentistry for more than three decades, and did so through his own dental office, Leslie Griesdorf understands what it takes to sustain a successful operation, particularly in what continues to be such a competitive market. The main components of a successful, sustainable dentistry include:
Focusing on What Makes Your Practice Unique
Whether your focus is family dentistry, or your practice is strictly centered on dentures and dental prosthetics, it’s important to identify those services or aspects that make your practice unique. Doing so early on in your practice, and working continuously to emphasize those qualities that make you stand out, is key to remaining competitive.
Discovering and Building on Your Office Culture
Taking the time to understand your practice’s personality, your expectations, your values and your protocols for patient care help to give and strengthen your office identity. Making sure everyone is on the same page, and working toward the same patient-centered goals, is crucial to creating a place patients want to visit.
