We had a great event this past Saturday where we had Beth Ryerse-Donley and April Smith present Global Power: A Call to Action! What is Your Role? and then I presented the 8 Simple Secrets to Growing Your Practice.

Some of our members attended on their own while others came with members from their team.

Regardless of if someone came on their own or not, we always encourage everyone to share their knowledge with their team afterwards to discuss ways to implement the learning into their practice!

We often work in silos in the dental practice and it is so important that we communicate with members of our team to make change happen.

Here are some helpful tips on how you can get your team on board:

1. Following a course, schedule a team meeting. Be intentional about sharing what you have learned.

2. Be prepared for your team meeting. Have your information collected and documented. Create a Case Presentation!

3. Share your presentation with your team! Show, in writing, where you are at currently on this topic. Show the Status Quo. Show the problem or concern. Then share in another document, your findings, the solution, the costs, resources and who will run the program and how it will be sustained. Show when you will Track and Measure the success and if it needs tweaking. This is where you will show that if it isn't successful initially, you will have a plan in place to tweak!

Ensuring that you have someone who will manage the program or new concept is key. You need to show that someone will track to ensure that it sustains!

Keep a copy of your plan in visual view. Keep a tracking record! Display it in an area where you will see it. Perhaps that is your team/lunch room! Because if it is out of site, it will be out of mind!

We have a few courses remaining for this Academic Year and then we will be away from offering courses until September!

Are you on track with your Professional Goals for this year? Are you on track with your QA Requirements?

Thank you for reading! Please see below for what is coming up and have a great week ahead!

Kindest regards,
