Lecturing for OMS Residents at Loyola University.

Thank you, Dr. Stephen MacLeod (Program Director), the Loyola University Chicago Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, and the residents for inviting me to lecture on OMS practice management. I really enjoyed discussing with you all about the trials and tribulations of running a small business.

Comprehensive Practice Analysis Project in South Dakota

Scott E. Graham, Founder and CEO of OMS Consulting Firm, and Scott Henderson, MBA recently completed a comprehensive practice analysis for Oral Surgery & Implant Specialists (OSIS) in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota. Graham and Henderson conducted a 3-day site visit with the leadership and staff at OSIS and have developed a final report of recommendations to drive practice improvement.

The comprehensive practice analysis is a key service of OMS Consulting Firm. It consists of an in-depth investigation of a practice’s functioning according to the domains outlined by the MGMA. These domains include operations management, financial management, human resource management, risk and compliance management, patient-centered care, and organizational governance. The domains are the subsystems of the practice, much like the body is composed of subsystems. Accordingly, each subsystem contributes to the overall health (or decline) of an oral and maxillofacial surgery practice. Each domain needs to be working well for the practice to excel.

OMS Consulting Firm created a guide to practice management that can measure areas of competency, provide industry standard benchmarks, and facilitate feedback. Graham and Henderson analyzed the domains at OSIS and then developed a comprehensive plan of action steps to help the OSIS leadership optimize the performance of their practice in each domain. After completing the recommendations, Oral Surgery & Implant Specialists will be better able to achieve their goals for high-functioning sustainability and growth.

OMS Consulting Firm helps Covenant Dentistry start OMS practice

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires a successful start-up process and a strong team of employees, both of which take knowledge and time to do well. OMS Consulting Firm recently partnered with Covenant Dentistry in The Bronx neighborhood of New York City to incorporate oral and maxillofacial surgery into their practice. The OMS Consulting Firm team helped with start up and development.

With decades of experience in how to start OMS practices, including how to train and onboard new employees, the OMS Consulting Firm worked closely with Emmanuel Omoyeni, the general manager at Covenant Dentistry. The team equipped Omoyeni with everything the practice needed to get started: independent contractor employment contracts; OMS billing, credentialing, insurance negations, and compliance; and the types of instruments and equipment necessary for OMS practice. They also gave Covenant Dentistry coaching services to help navigate the process and successfully integrate OMS into their practice.

“We would highly recommend OMS Consulting Firm,” said Omoyeni. “They did everything possible to make this a successful transition.”

Human resources and practice start-up are two of the many services offered by OMS Consulting Firm. Learn more about these services.

OMS Consulting Firm Helps Spark Orthodontics Open New Location for Oral Surgery

In May 2017, OMS Consulting Firm helped Spark Orthodontics open a new office in Bethlehem, PA that would offer oral surgery. The management at Spark operates several successful orthodontic offices in Pennsylvania, and they decided to partner with Dr. Pranathi Reddy to add orthognathic surgery to their services. So they called in OMS Consulting Firm to help them open the practice quickly and correctly.

The OMS Consulting Firm team helped Spark with:

  • Initial Assessment
  • Office forms
  • OMS Fee Schedule
  • Fee Negotiation
  • Credentialing
  • Office Design and Layout
  • Equipment and Supplies
  • Staffing and Personnel
  • Business Administration
  • Regulatory Compliance

“We really enjoyed working with OMS Consulting Firm,” said Dr. Jason Hartman at Spark. “They were professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Best of all, we have this new oral surgery office up and running much faster than if we had tried to set it up ourselves.”

By partnering with OMS Consulting Firm, Spark is open for business for oral surgery, and they have the business processes in place to excel at their new oral surgery services.
