“The REAL Production Formula –
Transforming the Way You Achieve Success”

Speaker – Jen Butler

Friday, October 11, 2019 – 8 a.m. to noon

Production is a result of multiple Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) interacting as one, symbiotic formula. Most owners and practice administrators aren’t even aware these KPIs exist let alone understand, influence, and leverage them to their advantage. In this eye-opening, jawdropping course, attendees will learn exactly what to do with these KPIs and how to finally achieve their production goals.

Dentists tend to focus on production as a measurement of their success. Too often they are disappointed when they set goals, bonus their staff, track their numbers, and still fall short of what they wish to produce. The reality is that production is a result of a combined effort of behaviors, influencing multiple Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that their total sum equals production.


  • Understand Production KPIs and its formulaic impact
  • Accelerate success by applying the production formula to their own practice numbers
  • Broaden knowledge of business acumen and development of practice KPIs
  • Outline specific behaviors team members will change to achieve KPI goals

With her 25-years in business development, Jen Butler has mastered the exact formula every dentist needs for them to meet their monthly production goals, consistently and effortlessly.

Attendees will walk out the door with a deep understanding of the REAL Production Formula, a step-by-step guide on how to implement it in their own practice, and ways to get staff on board so everyone can transform the way they achieve success.
