A SOLUTION FOR THE DENTIST WHO WANTS TO “DO IT ALL”…

I have great news! If you constantly feel like you need to just “do things yourself”, there is an easy solution to popping out of this mindset…

SLOW DOWN, TRAIN, PRACTICE AND COMMUNICATE! 

I would be a very rich woman if a penny were to drop out of the sky every time I said, “We can’t expect people to know what we want, if we don’t show them, tell them, and let them try it!” We move fast in dentistry, and a common feeling is that there is no time to train someone. But how does that even sound?! CRAZY if you ask me!

STOP WASTING TIME AND STRESS

We are wasting valuable time if we recognize the need to calibrate and train, and we don’t do it! We have to make time for that. If we don’t, we WILL be slowing down inadvertently. If you have been fortunate enough to find people that have the personality and values that contribute to a healthy culture, then give them everything you possibly can in the training process. You will love the results of that training, and lower your stress level.. I promise. Take the time! Focused training, is the answer to a lot of the problems I see in dental practices. Slow down, and then speed up!
