Key Challenges for Dentists - Your Team

Key Challenges for Dental Practice Owners can be their Team.

Are you a dental or specialist practice owner struggling to manage your team effectively? According to a survey published in the Journal of Dental Education in August 2016, managing staff is one of the top challenges faced by dental practice owners. Effective staff management is crucial for creating a positive work environment and providing high-quality patient care.

One way to tackle this challenge is by seeking the assistance of a dental/specialist business consultant. In my recent experience assisting a specialist practice with documentation for onboarding staff, the owner recognised the need for assistance due to her first-hand experience of seeing how not having proper procedures in place can be detrimental to the practice. The practice she recently left had a high turnover of staff due to a lack of induction and understanding of the practice's philosophy and values.

Unfortunately, not all dental and specialist practice owners recognise the value of getting their team right from attraction, to recruitment, and retention. This study confirms what I still see today - many dental owners do not have procedures and processes in place to make staff management easier.

By investing in a dental/specialist business consultant, you can implement procedures and processes that will not only improve staff management but also make your life easier. Consultants can help you attract and retain the right staff, provide training and development opportunities, and ensure that your team understands and embodies the practice's philosophy and values.

Effective staff management is essential for creating a positive work environment and providing high-quality patient care. If you are a dental/specialist practice owner struggling with this challenge, consider seeking the assistance of a dental/specialist business consultant. It may be the best investment you make for your practice and your patients.
