The Oxygen Mask Principle: Finding Your Ideal Work-Life Balance

4/12/2024
We all wear many hats – parent, spouse, friend, orthodontist. It's easy to get caught up in the daily grind and put our own needs and dreams on the back burner. To effectively help others, you must first nourish your own soul. This means identifying and pursuing the lifestyle that brings you joy and fulfillment. There's no one right way to do it. Prioritize your own well-being. Just like you need your oxygen mask to be effective, you need to recharge your own batteries to be the best orthodontist, parent, spouse, and friend you can be. That extra week of vacation may not make a dent in your bottom line, but it will make a huge difference in your soul and your relationships. I hope this motivates you to dream big and craft the career and life you truly desire!

Behind every orthodontic innovation, there’s a story waiting to be told.

Why Interest in OSOs Dropped in 2023 and What to Expect in 2024

4/5/2024
Orthodontic Support Organizations (OSOs) have recently become a hot topic, with some dismissing them as Ponzi schemes. In this episode, I want to clear some things up and help you make informed decisions if you're considering an OSO partnership. The decline in OSO buzz last year was largely due to economic factors. Higher interest rates and inflation made investors wary of putting large sums of money into private equity deals. However, money is starting to flow back into the markets. OSOs are not inherently risky or comparable to Ponzi schemes, contrary to some opinions. With proper management, they can be profitable through acquisitions, effective marketing, and overhead control. OSOs are companies that provide support services to orthodontic practices. These can include business management, marketing, HR, and purchasing. OSOs streamline processes and help practices grow. Well-run OSOs generate profit through the internal growth strategies mentioned above, not just by endlessly acquiring new practices. OSOs can be a fantastic option for orthodontists, but it's essential to be informed. Don't be afraid to ask questions, research, and seek help to figure out if it's the right path for you. Tune in to this episode to hear more on this! Key Takeaways Intro (00:00) Private equity investments in uncertain times (00:49) The impact of economic conditions on private equity investments (01:21) Viability of OSOs despite market challenges (03:57) Debunking the myth of OSOs as Ponzi schemes (05:53) Practical advice for evaluating OSO opportunities (06:23) Additional Resources - Call/Message Dr. Krieger: 469-610-9920 - Register for the OrthoPreneurs Summit at Sea (2024): https://opsummitatsea.com/ - For more information, visit: https://orthopreneurs.com/ - Join our FREE Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OrthoPreneurs

Why You Need to Put Yourself First (Even as a Parent)

3/29/2024
Let's talk about something that's been on my mind: self-care and reclaiming your identity. Seeing a therapist (even if you're not struggling), going to the gym, prioritizing spirituality, eating well, and finding simple pleasures are essential to your well-being. And that's part of my message in this 5-minute episode. As someone who works with mental health professionals, I've noticed a concerning trend. Millennial parents are pouring a tremendous amount of energy into their children – more so than any generation before. While the desire to be a great parent is wonderful, this level of intensity can create some serious problems. If this resonates with you, I urge you to take a step back for a moment. Here's my challenge for you: For one week, resist the urge to post anything about your children on social media. Instead, focus on yourself. Post what you like, and rediscover hobbies or find new things that bring you joy. Click to listen to the full episode and join me on a journey towards self-discovery and mindful living.

The Secret to Wealth No Orthodontic School Taught You

3/22/2024
In this five-minute episode, I share two vital lessons I've learned about money and earning as an orthodontist (or any dental professional). These lessons came from valued mentors and highlight ways to rethink your finances for greater potential. As my mentor bluntly put it, we earn our money when our [behind]'s are in the chair. This means that our primary income comes from actively seeing patients. If you want to increase your earning power, you might consider expanding clinical hours, hiring associates to delegate some of the clinical load, or even opening additional practice locations to increase revenue streams. But to create wealth, you need to shift your money mindset where you start viewing money as a tool to generate even more money. The sooner you achieve financial freedom to pursue other passions or simply enjoy a very comfortable life, the more you will enjoy it. Tune in to learn how you can start making your money work for you by changing your perspective on wealth!

3/12/2024
The world of orthodontics is rapidly evolving, with new technologies emerging all the time. While many doctors claim to have "digital practices," simply having the latest equipment doesn't automatically translate to a digital practice. A truly digital orthodontic practice requires a fundamental shift in mindset and approach. It's about embracing a new way of thinking and leveraging technology to improve efficiency, customize treatment, and enhance the patient experience. It's crucial to understand that digital workflows are a means to an end, not the end itself. The true power lies in transforming how you practice and the care you deliver.

Ever wished your orthodontic practice could bring in more dough without you having to work extra hours? Well, I've got some good news for you!

Shannon Seeberan, VP of Business Development for CMS (Cloud Med Spas), joins me to discuss this business model. Imagine this: Med spa professionals rent your idle chairs when you are not treating your patients. It's a win-win for everyone. You get extra income, and medical esthetics professionals get an affordable way to run their own business. Plus, this isn't some disruptive, invasive overhaul of your practice. It fits right in with your existing operations, seamlessly generating extra cash. It also offers some patient cross-over opportunities. Think of it as an extra revenue stream to leverage underutilized space in orthodontic practices for Med Spa procedures. So, how do you get started? Tune in to learn how you can start maximizing your practice's potential today.
