Dentistry is a field that sees constant and inevitable change. Ideas and techniques hyped as revolutionary and cutting edge just a few years ago are now obsolete. At Summit:
- We continue to fine-tune our dental practice management systems and strategies to keep up with the demands and challenges of the rapidly changing dental environment.
- We make it so that our systems serve as a framework to meet change as an opportunity instead of a threat.
- We provide guidelines for strategies that work and those that do not.

Work With Our Proven Systems
According to world-renowned author and business consultant W. Edwards Deming, “Ninety-four percent [of success] belongs to the system.” This is the best way to describe the tools found in every major successful business.
Some examples include heavyweight names like Henry Ford, who began using a procedure to make revolutionary cars that not only changed the automotive industry but also affected every manufacturing and assembly line worldwide. Ray Kroc made McDonald’s what it is today by duplicating a single successful idea multiple times. These men knew installing standard operating procedures in their businesses would help them figure out which methods worked. They achieved consistent results by replicating successful methods.
By implementing a defined set of systems and activities, Deming’s general business philosophy empowers employees to take on more responsibilities. This produces self-maintaining and semiautonomous workers running a staff-driven practice. Doctors and office managers no longer have to be at the center, and they can take on an integral team lead role instead. This philosophy serves as the backbone of a practice driven by systems rather than one that’s people-dependent. It also means people may come or go, but the practice remains focused because of the systems in place.
Systems should always be proven, duplicable, and transferable. Summit Practice Solutions provides you with systems taken from and established by Dr. Abernathy’s highly successful practice. These tools and ideas have been duplicated by numerous practices throughout North America and consistently produce excellent results.
Consistency, efficiency, and effectiveness across all aspects of your practice are what will allow you to grow and achieve higher levels of success. Staff members should be able to accomplish both routine and unforeseen aspects of their individual jobs without needing micromanagement. Push your staff to be active participants in practice management by encouraging an attitude of ownership. Avoid carrying the entire load by yourself by implementing a system-dependent practice that will be the solution itself.
