Infinite Hygiene offers a holistic approach to advising and guiding your dental practice. While our dental business consulting does dig into the numerical details of your practice, it also approaches the mental and emotional aspects. One of the most important facets of your business that can’t be pointed to on paper is the overall mindset. Do you and your employees embrace a mindset of change and growth? Is your culture that of positivity and encouragement? Infinite Hygiene assesses these items and more, utilizing an outside perspective to help you focus in on places that can be improved, particularly when it comes to your business mindset.

What Is A Growth Mindset?

A buzz term commonly dropped today in the business industry is “growth mindset.” So what is it, and why is it so crucial to the continuing success of your practice? A growth mindset typically describes an attitude that enjoys and embraces challenges, works to learn and grow, and seeks to improve existing and future skill sets. A growth mindset characterizes a person and a business that is ready to develop and flourish.

What Is A Fixed Mindset?

A “fixed mindset” typically comes about due to people being measured merely by their outcomes. Results become the most important factor in this situation, and the business is stifled by expectations, negativity, and anxiety.

Why A Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset in a dental practice nurtures a culture of development, willingness, and even eagerness. According to research done by Harvard Business Review, the following was observed in workplaces that exhibited growth mindsets: people were 47% likelier to say that their colleagues are trustworthy, 34% likelier to feel a strong sense of ownership and commitment to the company, 65% likelier to say that the company supports risk taking, and 49% likelier to say that the company fosters innovation.

“Mindset” may not be something you see in an invoice, but it certainly has its own numbers to back up why it’s important. Having a mindset that’s open to change and willing to grow is key to having an enduring practice. When you have a team working together towards a common goal, support and collaboration comes naturally. And when you have a team seeking a united success in a positive climate? Anything can happen.

Sometimes it’s not easy to step back and either see or address the issues in your practice.
