The way team members communicate, the way they deliver a quality experience for the patient, and the way they discuss treatment fees conveys the an image for practice. Each team member has the ability to make the practice more productive, more cost effective, and, ultimately, more profitable. Practice profitability should be as important to your team as it is to you. The more successful the practice, the greater the team's earnings potential.

The dental assistant works as the dentist's right-hand woman. She must have complete knowledge of the instruments the dentist is using.

It is important to be empathetic to patients needs and concerns, and to work with them to achieve optimal comfort and satisfaction.

Teamwork is the key in our field!
