One Huge Mistake Many Dentists Will Make This Morning

There’s a huge mistake that many dentists will make this morning.

Are you one of them?

Getting to your office just a few minutes before the first patient is scheduled, or at the same time they are scheduled, or, (gasp…) AFTER the first patient is scheduled is pretty much a guaranteed way to make sure the day is more chaotic and less productive than it should be.

My advice? Arrive at LEAST 30 minutes before the first patient is scheduled. Have a brief, well organized morning meeting where you discuss the flow of the day. Have some nice, fun, informal chit chat with your team. Then take a deep breath and relax for a few minutes before “the show” begins.

The good news? If you made that mistake today, you don’t have to tomorrow!
