Dental Practice Leadership: 8 Tips for Optimizing Your Team

A dental practice cannot fully realize its potential if everyone in the practice isn’t on board and functioning 100%. As practice owners, dentists are also the CEO and leaders of their practices. Dental practice leadership involves making sure that each member of the team is contributing what they can to keep the practice running smoothly.

Dental assistants are often on the front lines of the dental practice. They have ample opportunities to interact with patients, in addition to performing services. Dental assistants play an important role in keeping the practice on a timely schedule each day. Check out these 8 tips on how to maximize the efficiency of dental assistants.

Consider your own dental practice leadership for a moment. Could there be any room for improvement within your existing processes?

It’s good to remember that teamwork is essential to patient satisfaction and ultimately, to long-term practice success.
