BostickA Straine Industry Icon possesses the drive to achieve results, the ability to take initiative, skills in collaboration and teamwork and the ability to lead teams.

Dr. Christopher Bostick’s family and cosmetic dental practice, located in Danville, Kentucky, offers patients a tranquil environment with state-of-the-art technology in a brand new facility.  Dr. Bostick became a month-to-month Straine client in 2012 and works with Straine Senior Consultant Paul Smith.

Dr. Bostick purchased a large practice after working three years as an associate and was adjusting to the new challenges of ownership when he met Paul Smith.  “I was the only dentist and was working 11-hour days, five days a week,” says Bostick.  “The lab room wasn’t sufficient and space was tight as I worked out of two of the five treatment rooms with three hygienists occupying the other treatment rooms.  I felt overworked, unorganized and needed help getting out of my hustle and bustle stage.”

Straine Consultant Paul Smith immediately noticed the potential Dr. Bostick had to grow his practice. “Dr. Bostick had incredible patient flow but was running out of places to put people,” Smith says.  “Dr. Bostick was booked several months out with no room to accommodate emergencies.  I could tell after our first meeting that expansion was in our future.”

Dr. Bostick turned to Straine consultant Paul Smith for guidance as he began to make essential changes to his practice.

“I put the right systems in place, hired an associate, and purchased a larger building located conveniently across the street from my old practice,” Bostick recalled.  “We went from five treatment rooms to nine.  Paul Smith was the architect and engineer using the Straine Management System™ and Straine’s incredible best practices methodologies.”

“I was there to partner with Dr. Bostick,” says Smith, “and to help him navigate through the process of adding to his team and making the move to the larger facility as smooth as possible.  We were able to take advantage of his patient population that he wasn’t currently serving and open up new hours and days that made us less dependent on Dr. Bostick.  Now, with a comprehensive scheduling policy, Dr. Bostick is able to take time off to spend with his three young children and wife without worrying about the practice.  He has an incredible team and practice, and we are honored to be a part of his growth.”

Dr. Bostick is proud to report that production is up 60% since he moved into his new facility in October 2013, “I am thrilled that I was able to purchase the most recent equipment for the new building and I’ve integrated many new technological components into my practice, including PlanScan by Planmeca E4D.  My patients and employees say my practice is the ultimate representation of 21st century technology and I love working in my practice more than ever!  I’m still working hard in order to keep up with demand but don’t feel the pressure I did before hiring Straine, bringing on an associate, and purchasing the new building.  I’ll admit I was skeptical about hiring a consultant at first but it turned out to be the right decision.  When I have a problem, I know Paul Smith will have the solution.  Paul and I get along really well and our communication is clear.  I would say we’re a match made in heaven.”
