Regularly scheduled staff meetings are essential to maintaining the effective day to day operations of a dental practice as well as provide for the ongoing development of a dental practice.
Staff meetings provide an essential forum for problem-solving and correcting day to day operational problems which are impossible to address during the course of an ordinary day. The ongoing correction of problem areas is essential to:
- Maintaining high standards of patient treatment, service and care
- Maintaining high standards of teamwork and communication
Staff meetings also provide the opportunity to work on the development of practice systems free from day to day operating pressures. Taking time out of your team’s busy day allows them to really focus on the task at hand, provide thoughtful and insightful feedback, and develop more effective systems.
Developing effective systems also requires that teams follow planning, decision making and change management processes to incorporate change effectively. Staff meetings also allow your team to provide you with feedback on changes and brainstorm solutions.
