The dental field is always changing. It is important to continue to support patients and your office by creating away for yourself and team members to share new information on dental instruments, techniques and technology that is impacting the dental field.
As a leader of the office you should find and establish a system for your team to bring new information to the office. Maybe a new social media format or an updated software that will save money as just been released. Whatever new idea, there should be an established format where the team can come together and share information and ideas in a safe way.
In one of your team huddles you may decide to have the team read about a new technique and discuss whether it would benefit the office. Or you might have them try the x-ray machine and report on how well it works for patients.
Another important way to keep up-to-date on information and share it with your team is conventions and other trainings. In the past you may not have seen a purpose for your teams to attend these events however, new research and new information can become invaluable to your office. The more your team is out and about and has access to new information the better off your patients will be. Find the way to help build your team’s knowledge on new and innovative practices.
Great teams take effort. Take time to work on your practice regularly to build quality communication and strengthen your results. For more information and to read other articles, please visit us at www.saltdpm.com.
