NYU College of Dentistry Engages Top Practice Management Consulting Group to Bring Business World Approaches to Academic Dentistry

NYUCD Engages Top Practice Management Consultants to Bring Business World Approaches to Academic Dentistry
Progressive Step in Dental Education

NYU College of Dentistry, the nation’s largest academic dental center, has entered into a collaborative agreement with Levin Group, Inc., the leading practice management consulting firm in the U.S., to identify and implement a more comprehensive approach to practice management in dental education. Levin Group will provide NYU faculty, students and alumni with the necessary business skills to establish and run a successful, profitable private practice.

According to Dr. Michael C. Alfano, Dean of the NYU College of Dentistry, “Like every dental college, NYU wants its alumni to continue to be successful. Success in dentistry is a combination of high ethical standards, diagnostic acumen, clinical prowess, and business skills, culminating in high-quality care for patients and great fulfillment for dentists. Nationwide, in fact, when new dental graduates are asked what additional training they wish they had received in dental school, their number-one answer is business training.
“If a dentist is struggling to make ends meet, he or she will have less opportunity to take continuing education courses, may not be able to support an adequate staff, and may feel increased pressure, all of which will have an unfavorable impact both on patient care and on the dentist’s personal life. The NYU/Levin Group collaboration provides a unique opportunity to merge NYU’s excellent clinical training with a proven practice management method, to effectively optimize practice performance and ensure professional success.”
The NYU College of Dentistry will collaborate with Levin Group in the following areas:

• Developing practice management curricula for predoctoral and postdoctoral programs that incorporate the Levin Group Method™, the only proven practice management solution which covers the essential elements of dental practice management and marketing;

• Developing a customized, comprehensive training program for the entire NYU College of Dentistry faculty. This program will cover key aspects of practice management;

• Assessing and providing “best-model” solutions to optimize all aspects of the NYU Dental Clinics operations, including scheduling, treatment delivery efficiencies, patient management, financial performance, case presentation, and team effectiveness;

• Delivering an exclusive series of continuing education programs taught by Dr. Roger P. Levin, focused on general practice and specialty practice management and marketing.

Founded in 1865, the NYU College of Dentistry is the third oldest dental
school and the largest comprehensive oral health care center in the nation,
graduating more than eight percent of the nation’s dentists annually. NYU
College of Dentistry is a leading source for dental care in New York City,
and a national leader in dental education, research, and policy issues in dentistry.

Since 1985, the Levin Group, founded by Roger P. Levin, DDS, MBA, has successfully consulted with more than 7,500 dental practices worldwide. Nearly 600 dentists enter Levin Group’s 12-month consulting programs each year. More than 98 percent of enrolled practices achieve significant growth within 12 months by incorporating statistically valid, proven business methods into practices.
