In this publication, we are going to briefly discuss how this might be attainable for you. Most of these topics have been touched on in our previous newsletters.

As the popular phrase states, “There is no ‘I’ in team”. There is an importance in showing up and working. It does take a lot of work to reach $1,000,000 but, if you must be at work you might as well be busy. If you think you can have a relaxing day at work with plenty of time to watch the sports center, then you will probably not be able to reach such a goal.

An efficient and educated team is needed to streamline production. From scheduling to cleaning rooms everyone must have clearly defined roles. Great team members are needed in every area, including assistants, hygienists, front office, and insurance. Make sure you treat your team well.
You want your team to feel appreciated. Celebrating goals and milestones can aid in accomplishing this. Set goals with your team and celebrate the wins. An employee that feels appreciated and respected will be happier. Most of the patient’s time is spent with the staff rather than the doctor. A competent and
personable team is truly invaluable.
