Overview of M.A.P.™
M.A.P. (Maximizing Authentic Potential) is a core principle of our work. Every person is a unique expression of gifts, skills and talents - some of them in full bloom, some untapped. We have dedicated our lives to helping people unlock their hidden potential and discover their own path to greater personal and professional fulfillment. Grow your people, grow your practice. M.A.P. will show you how.
The dynamic and interactive forum of our diverse workshops helps you focus, renew, and rekindle the spirit of your practice. Our retreats are designed with great flexibility in mind, so you can choose to schedule your own single-practice workshop or join other practices with similar issues to share the learning experience.
Retreats can be held any time, anywhere, from an inspirational outdoor setting to the comfort of your own office. There is nothing quite like getting together with your team in a new environment for fresh ideas to emerge. Our retreats are individually crafted for your group's specific focus. We are happy to take care of all outside arrangements so you can relax, rejuvenate, and reinvent your practice.
M.A.P.™ Vision Clarification and Strategic Planning

Our high-powered team conferences are invitation-only programs for our clients seeking synergistic, collaborative teamwork in choice-based, comprehensive-care dentistry.
This inspiring and fun workshop includes experiential and interactive learning, as well as small-group breakout sessions and working with your own team. We provide advanced communication training, valuable insights to the behavioral and organizational aspects of Comprehensive-Care Dentistry, and the opportunity to network with valued colleagues and high-caliber dental professionals throughout the country. Plan to go home with new learning, greater confidence, team cohesiveness, and a collection of new ideas from other practices. [see calendar]
Marketing is one of the most important ingredients for success in modern dentistry. Terry and Janis will guide you in developing a distinctive, compelling and effective marketing strategy that will set you apart from the pack.
Increase your return on investment by establishing clear marketing objectives and meeting them rapidly and efficiently. Combine tried and true techniques - free services, direct mail marketing, and traditional media advertising, with the latest technological and organizational tools to maximize your response. Our intensive think-tank exercises will help you foster creativity and unity with a team-supported marketing plan that will give you measurable results! [see calendar]
"Thank you for the fantastic information we received at the Marketing Symposium. It is amazing how simple, intuitive ideas have had such a positive impact on our interpersonal communication and marketing outreach. The results, in the practice atmosphere and in our bottom line, have been significant."
This invitation-only three-day workshop is for committed hygienists from practices across the country. We have seen a rise in hygiene burnout and the loss of some of our country's finest dental professionals. We are committed to turning that around.
Dental Hygiene is a unique profession that allows you to have more consistent contact with patients than any other health care provider, thus enabling you to truly function as their health advocate. Hygienists with well-developed facilitation skills can make a significant difference in the quality of patients' lives, as well as the success of their practice. There are rich opportunities for you to expand your role, adding deep and lasting fulfillment to your work and life.
We will focus on your role as facilitator, health-advocate and agent for change. We will examine the role of facilitation in hygiene with both new and established patients. We will also explore nutritional counseling, alternative therapies, internal marketing opportunities, and the powerful impact hygienists have on practice growth. [see calendar]

"When I learned these skills, models and way of being a facilitator, it began a new journey for what's important in life, in my career, and with my patients. Facilitation ultimately improves the bottom line by allowing me to work smarter, not harder."
If every Practice Administrator's desk had the same sign, it would read, "The buck stops here." Every PA wears many hats over the course of the day: process creator and manager, organizer, conflict resolution specialist, human resources director, cheerleader, and many, many more.
Every role requires diverse skills, and there is no better place to develop those skills than at this exceptional 3-day experiential workshop. Expand your horizons and stimulate your mind. You'll discover a unique and engaging approach to practice management. Build on this foundation with our proven hands-on exercises, ideal for practical application of new skills and ideas. Keep on your toes with the latest techniques and strategies to maintain and improve care and efficiency.
The PA Camp is a prime opportunity to meet and brainstorm with high-caliber colleagues, and develop advanced skills vital to your practice success. Everyone seeking insight into optimum practice management will return to their practice refreshed, energized and inspired, with renewed confidence in themselves, their vision, abilities, and focus.
