Over the last several months we’ve been receiving some questions from the dentalcommunity. Our experience in brokering and appraising hundreds and hundreds ofpractices has made us a natural place for professionals to turn with theirquestions. We realized that several people had the same questions and so wethought this might make a great forum for people to ask their questionsanonymously and receive their answers. Therefore, ‘Ask the Expert’ was created.Please feel free to send us an email with your questions Is December a month where you typically see productiondrop in clinics?Answer: December, as you know, can be a very interesting month. Insome ways, it can be very busy as patients rush to get work donebefore their benefits run out. In other ways, it does slow downbecause many clinics choose to close between the dates ofDecember 24th and January 2nd. In many ways, staffing becomesproblematic in that time as staff also try to take time off over that‘Christmas week’. In general, however, those 2 ends of the spectrumtend to balance each other out - so I guess the short answer is thatDecember may typically be a bit lower in production but notmarkedly so. Conversely, if your office is open the whole month youare likely to see a rise in production. If you are noticing lowproduction in any month, it is worth taking a closer look at what mayfactoring into the drop and working to correct the problem. We arehappy to help you do a deep dive to find a cause and solution forthis issue.Question: I’ve heard you refer to ‘Conference Season’ before. Itseems that conferences and seminars operate from Autumn to latespring. How many conferences do you attend? What are youfavourites?CANDID COMMENTARY ON PRACTICE VALUATIONASK THE EXPERTThe "COVID Effect" On Your Practice:Call Us To Learn More.In order to prepare for the future,In order to prepare for the future, you must consider the must consider the past.

Answer: For us at Avail, conference ‘season’ tends to beSeptember and October. This past year, there were so many in-person conferences in September that we had to divide our teamin order to attend the top ones for us, and even at that, we had tomiss out on some of our favourites! It’s really tough to say whichones are our favourites, but we always try to attend theSaskatchewan Oral Health Conference, The NorthWest DentalExpo, and the WCDS Curling and Golf events. As I write thisarticle, we are on our way to our first Greater New York DentalMeeting and in February we will be hosting our first annual Healthand Wellness Winter Escape for Dental professionals. I’m excitedto share all that we experience and learn at the New York DentalExpo, and it’s probably safe to say that my FAVOURITEconference will be the one we host in Palm Springs in February!Question: This time of year most companies do a little bit extra forcharitable giving. What, if anything, does Avail do for charitablegiving?THE DENTAL DESK MAGAZINE  | 12ASK THE EXPERT CON'T:Answer: What a great question! We like to think of ourselves as a community-focused company, and we try tomake this a year-round commitment to local charities in each community that we serve. Some of our charitableendeavours remain the same year after year, such as supporting the Shine Dental Initiative in Edmonton,Kindness in Action, Direct Dental in Saskatoon, The Alex Bus, and Food Banks in each community. This holidayseason our Calgary team adopted 5 seniors in the Senior’s Secret Service program, we’ve contributed toSaskatchewan’s ‘Let’s talk Turkey’ program and have made donations to the Edmonton, Calgary, Kelowna,Victoria and Vancouver Food Bank programs. On a personal level, my family also supports the Veteran’s FoodBank in Calgary, my mother-in-law knits hats and scarves and donates them to the Women In Need Society andone of our favourite holiday traditions is to create care baskets and deliver them to the local fire, paramedic,police and emergency room departments. We certainly wish we could do more and we strive to constantlyincrease and improve our charitable giving. If you have some of your own favourites or know of groups in needof support, please share them with us.Question: Does the Avail office closeduring the holidays?Answer: This December, our office willclose at noon on December 23rd/22 andwill re-open on January 3rd/23 at 9am.This doesn’t mean that work on currentprojects stops entirely during this time.We continue to work on all projects thatare in the works, however, we do give ouradministrative team some much neededrest and family time and therefore will notbe responsive to new enquiries over thattime frame. We look forward to servingthis community with renewed energy andenthusiasm in the New Year.

positional physical stressors, aswell as personal pressures andmental health challenges can alladd up to create a challengingworkplace environment.We have worked diligently toassemble a group of speakers andpresenters with a wider array ofexpertise to address the mind, bodyand practice of the dentalprofessional. The purpose of thisopportunity is to refresh attendeesand provide them with tools tocreate thriving professional andpersonal lives. For the body, we will provideopportunities for yoga, meditationwalks and learning about EmotionalFreedom Therapy, or EnergyTapping. Energy tapping is a toolthat has seen tremendous success W H Y C H O O S E A H E A L T H A N D W E L L N E S S C O N F E R E N C E F O R T R A V E L C E BY YVETT E SHANAHANThere are so many conferences,seminars, and travel ceopportunities out there. Sometimesit can be a real challenge to find theforest through the trees and tofigure out which opportunity is bestsuited to your needs or to theneeds of your office. I am facedwith same quandary as I try todetermine which opportunities toseize for our presentations and ourparticipation.Let me begin by saying that Ibelieve all of these opportunitiesare valuable and worthwhile.Somewhere behind all of theadvertisements and marketing, arehard working people who are tryingto assemble something of interestand value to offer. I know thisbecause, I am one of those people -and I have been working extremelyhard on a conference / experiencethat I have been dreaming of forseveral years. In February of 2023 we will behosting our first annual Health andWellness CE Winter Escape in PalmSprings!So, what makes this conferencedifferent? Well, in my experience, Ihaven’t come across many (if any)dental conferences that focus onthe health and wellness of theperson who is a dentalprofessional, while also offeringsome technical courses. I have a real passion for focusingon ‘health and wellness’ for theperson behind the professionaldesignation. I believe that ourprofessional lives will continuallyimprove if we put focus and effortin our personal physical and mental wellness. In the dental profession,especially, the stresses ofownership and office operations,the physical challenges ofrepetitive stress injuries and

in the treatment of addiction recovery, ptsd and anxiety disorders. Energy tapping was recently highlighted onthe Today show. You can follow this link for a brief description on one way to utilize tapping to reduce yourdaily stresses.

In today’s world we aremore acutely aware of workplace stresses and how they spill over into our personal lives and vice versa. Weare also constantly striving to find a better work / life balance and to live with purpose and passion. Thesepresentations will enlighten your efforts and enhance the tools in your toolbox so that you may begin livingyour best life.Finally, for the practice, we have experts in the fields of brand building, digital and social marketing, modernday dentistry tools (creating efficiencies in your practice), mindset for practice growth, transition planning,accounting and much more.

SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH. This has been a statement that Ihave struggled with. It’s against our nature to say ‘no’, to ignore the pileof work, to choose to not attendthat hockey game or that holidayparty, or to turn our phones off andbe fully present in the moment. Buthere’s the truth; when our lives areover (hopefully a long time fromnow) we won’t regret that we didn’taddress the pile of work, or wedidn’t run ourselves ragged, or thatwe missed a party, or even that wedidn’t make things perfect. We willregret that we didn’t spend qualitytime with our loved ones, that wewere so depleted that during theholidays we didn’t enjoy thosemoments or feel present in the joyand chaos.Continued on next page.S E L F - C A R E F O R T H E H O L I D A Y SBY YVETT E SHANAHANThe holidays are a funny time,aren’t they? If you’re anything likeme, you look forward to theholidays each year! I, personally,romanticize the holidays. In mymind I see twinkling lights, snowgently following but the weatherisn’t too cold, everyone has anabundance of spare time andholiday spirit, family gets alongbeautifully, perfect gifts are easy tofind in cheerful shopping malls withbargains galore, and enthusiasticbaking expeditions result in perfectpastries and tasty treats. Oh yes,the holidays in my mind are themakings of a Hallmark dream!But … when mid November comesaround, the reality of the holidayslooks quite a bit different than thepicture I painted above. It’s usuallya challenge to get those twinklinglights up and working, the weatherhas been a combination of bleakgrey skies and frigid storm conditions, there is no spare timeas everyone tries to get work andprojects wrapped up for a few daysoff. Family is running in manydifferent directions and peacefulharmony is tough to find, malls arebusy, cranky and prices are high,and the few minutes I get in thekitchen for baking is more like a rollof Pillsbury cookies … if we’relucky!I often feel harried, stressed, over-scheduled and generally like I amfailing on all fronts.It’s during these times that weoften forget to practice self-care. Inour quest to create the perfect fill-in-the-blank we tend to de-prioritizeourselves and end up feeling andfunctioning totally depleted. THE DENTAL DESK MAGAZINE  |
