Dental Whale Strategic Revenue Leader Scott Mortier Shares Lean Dental Design Methodology for Efficient Practice Build-Out

SUNRISE, Fla. (August 13, 2019) – Scott Mortier, Strategic Revenue Leader of Dental Whale, recently joined John Stamper on his podcast, DentalCast Productions, to discuss the many services Dental Whale offers independent dentists. In the most recent episode, Mortier shared three crucial steps to design a dental office efficiently and cost-effectively. These key takeaways were based on best practices from Dental Whale subsidiary Lean Dental Design, a fast-growing support services firm for dentists looking to design and build state-of-the-art practices.

Among the three tips Mortier shared was the importance of designing and building a practice with a proven methodology and strategies for success.

When you’re making a decision to open a new practice, particularly when building a start-up, there needs to be a methodology or thought process behind your decision-making.

Scott Mortier, Strategic Revenue Leader

“Whether it’s how to pick a location or even which finishes to use, it’s important to have the experience and knowledge of those who have done it before. For instance, there are more than 100 practices across the country currently operating based on Lean Dental Design methodology, and as a business owner, you owe it to yourself to leverage the expertise and strategies from others with proven success.”
