    The message may be "excellence" or "comprehensive dentistry." It may be a message of "caring" or "compassion." But if the team does not appreciate the message or have the skills to convey fundamental information to patients, then the practice's core message is no more effective than a note stuffed in a bottle and thrown into the sea. The chances that the message will be received and acted upon in a timely manner are slim. This lecture gives practices the skills they need to develop and formulate messages and protocols and to hold everyone accountable for success. When the practice culture is about accountability, then things get done and results are achieved. Learning Objectives: --How to develop a core marketing message and communicate it effectively to patients. --How to make everyone enthusiastically accountable for practice success. --How to train the team to use the best verbal skills for any situation.
