Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the Program for?

This program was built for everyone in your practice! The more of your team that understands these fundamentals, the better off your business will be. However, if you want to start slow, we suggest that owners, managers, future leaders, and high-potential employees go through this program together as a unit for the most impactful outcomes. 

How many people from my team should participate? 

Beyond being a great learning program this is an organizational alignment tool meaning that the more people who participate together, the better the impact you'll see when looking to implement these learnings.

What if I miss the live sessions?

While you will get the most out of joining them and participating in the conversation with both your peers and industry experts, if you can't make one do not worry! All sessions are recorded and uploaded into the eLearning to review later.

How long will I have access to the program?

Great question, while the program runs in a synchronous timing with your peers after the 10-weeks you will retain access to the eLearning for a full calendar year after we wrap up.

How long will it take me?

Weekly you should expect about 2.5 hours per week, but self-paced learning is all up to your availability! 

Then bi-weekly we have 60-minute long live sessions with your peers and industry experts. 

Overall, you should expect anywhere from 20-40 hours over the 10-weeks. (Some learners spend much longer than this and some a little less, but it depends on where you are at in your professional journey)!

Will I receive CE credit?

Yes, the New Mexico Dental Association is a recognized CERP provider and will authorize 30 hours of continuing education credit for completing the course.

What is a “mini-MBA program”?

The curriculum for this program is based on content taught in a traditional Masters of Business Administration degree, but has been condensed and focused to provide the most important information for a business owner or manager. While you will not receive an actual MBA credential, the learning and knowledge gained will have a similar impact on your practice.
