Successful Team Communication
Continually implementing effective communication skills in your practice will set you up for better case acceptance, less staff turnover, and happy patients that feel comfortable. It starts with clear team communication – both in written and verbal expression – to define your practice vision. If you haven’t put your vision in writing, now is the time.
If you have had staff turnover, plan to host a team meeting to get everyone on the same page and allow staff to focus on long-term goals in addition to the daily tasks needed to operate the practice. Setting up long-term communication standards allows smoother transitions as you hire additional staff in the future. Even the smallest of teams will benefit from dedicated meeting times with set agendas. Patients perceive the energy from your practice – make sure it is a positive experience they look forward to.
