GPS Managing the Dental Team

Managing The Dental Team

Your dental team is a vital to your practice and its strength and cohesiveness directly impacts the success of your practice. Your practice is able to dedicate itself towards providing quality patient care when the majority of the staff’s time, energy and resources aren’t sidetracked by the need to fill vacant positions or resolve conflicts.

Managing The Dental Team

  • Managing Performance: Benefits

    It’s a good idea to periodically give employees a report that recaps the value of their total compensation package, which includes information regarding the total value of their salary and all applicable benefits.

  • Managing Employee Performance and Salary Reviews

    Despite the need for formal reviews, all employees, especially your best ones, want input, feedback and encouragement.

  • Staff Satisfaction

    Your team is important to your practice. How happy and satisfied they are in their jobs can have a direct impact on how patients are treated and how profitable the practice is.

  • Staff Training

    One way to make your staff training sessions successful is to plan them in advance.

  • Staff Training Topics

    It’s a good idea to require staff members who submit agenda topics for consideration to put their initials on the form they use.

  • Continuing Education

    Not only does ongoing learning help your team become knowledgeable about and proficient in new skills and techniques, it can improve the practice’s efficiency and profitability.

  • Creating The Policy Manual

    The staff policy manual can be used to support staff training efforts and to open dialogue on topics and practices that impact both patients and everyone on the team.

  • Policies to Consider

    An effective staff policy manual protects you, your staff and your practice by outlining expectations, rights and responsibilities.
