More than any other variable in your dental practice, a talented and supportive staff is the key to your success. Dentistry is a very difficult and demanding profession and the doctor who tries to shoulder the burden of managing the office without the proper assistance soon becomes frustrated and discouraged. Creating and molding a compatible staff is not an overnight process. It could potentially take a few years to find just the right blend of talent and personalities. I help my clients do a thorough assessment of the abilities and personalities of their staff. Is your staff reflecting your philosophy? I focus on creating a team concept with an emphasis on delegation of responsibility so that staff members can grow in their jobs and develop confidence in their ability to handle complex situations. The ultimate goal of my efforts is to decrease stress and greatly increase productivity.
