It's not often I can fangirl over one of my guests! Dr. Addison Killeen joined me to discuss the importance of systemization in dental practices and how it can transform the way we run our businesses. I've listened to him speak on these topics and am thrilled to share this knowledge with you. He believes that high levels of systemization and consistency lead to easier onboarding of new employees. We discussed the need for leaders to regularly evaluate and update their checklists and processes - things change! Addison also opens up about the challenges of dealing with potential theft and the heartbreaking reality of a trusted team member becoming dishonest. He shares practical tips on implementing systems like video cameras and multiple hands on money to prevent theft and create checks and balances.

But it's not all serious business! We dove into the why and how of his extensive line of operations manuals. I highly recommend them if you're seeking consistency in your systems. Whether you're a dentist looking to streamline your practice or a team member wanting to contribute to a more efficient workplace, this episode is packed with practical advice and inspiration. As promised, I share below my favorite podcast episodes in which he gives mini-financial lessons. Listening to them is how I became a fan!
