Your Most Important Asset
It’s not your house. It’s not your practice. In fact, it’s not any tangible possession. Your most precious asset is your human capital—your ability as an individual to generate income using your energy and the energy of those around you. This is the engine that powers your life.
And the way you maximize the value of your human capital is by optimizing these three components:
The more advanced your clinical skills, the more comprehensive your diagnoses will be, allowing you to treat more sophisticated cases. Developing these skills throughout your career is the most direct and effective way to boost your human capital.
This means developing your leadership skills so that you have a clear understanding of all the roles in the practice and how they are interdependent with each other—not just for optimum efficiency, but also for creating value for your dentistry.
This means making the right economic commitments to re-investment so you can work in the right facility; with the correct equipment and technology that will support the value you want to communicate. This will also enhance the level of care you’re able to provide.
This is what it all comes down to: Getting the most from yourself, the people around you and the tools that support your clinical delivery. This is how you optimize the value of your most important asset.
