Dental Practice Morning Huddle

A dental practice morning meeting/huddle is VERY different than a dental staff meeting. I'd leave the motivational stuff to staff meetings as there is a a lot to go over in a correctly run morning huddle and usually not much time to do so.


Complimentary "Morning Huddle" forms can be downloaded from here


The morning meeting/huddle is a denta practice's COORDINATION & PRODUCTION meeting that should cover:


Month to Date Goal broken down by each dentist & hygienist.


A look at where you project to be at toward attaining your monthly goal by the end of the day for each provider.


At look at the next five days in terms of what major procedures are scheduled and whether more needed to be added to stay on goal.


A look at any openings in the dentist’s schedule and possible solutions.


Identifying patients in the schedule with potential treatment that could be added to the schedule. 


What patients need x-rays per your treatment guidelines.


When is emergency time available today.


Financial information on today’s patients (identify financial arrangements needed, poor pay, etc.) 


Review new patient info from telephone contact form. 


Status/follow-up on yesterday’s changes in schedule. Bring yesterday’s schedule to discuss. 

Any to-do's.


Potential issues/problems i.e. lab cases not in, lack of inventory, etc.

Client Feedback


Even though my numbers were pretty darn good my staff was driving me crazy. Two hours into my first visit I was back in control. Within four months our production and collections jumped an astronomical 74%. I thank both God and Cambridge.
-Dr. Richard Gaw
Nashville, TN 

I had owned my office for about a year and the production graphs were trending down, quickly.  My Cambridge coach met with me, offered several ideas specific to my situation, and two years later, I'm having annual growth over 20%.
-Dr. Dustin Snyder
Lewisburg, PA

Cambridge enabled us to grow and prosper. Thank you!
-Dr. David Ainbinder
Middletown, NY

The Best Thing that I have ever done with respect to productivity and staff management was to hire Cambridge.
-Dr. Mike Dukes
Jacksonville, FL

I researched several practice management companies but decided to go with Cambridge because of their good reputation and because I didn't feel pressured. I know there are a lot of management companies out there. I just really feel like Cambridge is one of the best and was the best for me and my practice.
-Dr. Andrea Mullholland, 
Columbus, OH 

My experience with Cambridge has been great. Their money back guarantee was a nice touch to lower the risk factor for me. In just the first six months Cambridge helped me have a 14% turn around. I whole-heartedly recommend Cambridge and their services.
