Let’s start with the big impact first. If your team has more skills, they can carry out more tasks, which makes your dentists more efficient, likely more productive, potentially able to carry out better treatments. Overall, this gives way to more profit.
Loyal dental staff.
Helping your dental nurses develop their skills shows how you support them, believe in them and care about them bettering themselves. Growing together breeds loyalty and happier staff, which often leads to decreased staff turnover. This is good news for everyone.
Better invested dentists.
Have you ever had a dentist say they love working in your dental practice, that the way you manage your dental practice is exemplary or the way the whole team is led by you is what makes your dental practice so great? When you invest in your team, dentists feel the knock-on effect of how this makes their working day better by feeling more supported by further trained dental nurses. It makes your dentists feel better invested in you and your dental practice.
Patients enjoy interacting and meeting more members of your team. It helps them build relationships with individual staff members and feel better connected. Don’t be surprised when a patient enters your practice and says hello to at least 4 different team members by name. Make your patients loyal to your dental practice and happy to tell their friends all about how great you are.
